In ancient Persia, magical beasts are nearly extinct. But the unicorns are not yet gone—not when the terrifying karkadann wields its deadly horn. It will be up to Heydari, tenderhearted son of an elephant driver, to discover more than a monster in a badly-injured beast. Lisa passes her days as a distracted maid who is slow of speech and thought. But Lisa has unique memories: a terrible sorcerer has cursed with his dying spell, taking both her freedom and her true form. Discover unicorns as you have never imagined them, in this special, limited edition chapbook celebrating fantasy icons Peter S. Beagle and Patricia A. McKillip at the height of their powers.
