"To eat the flesh of the unicorn will bring a man to everlasting life." The Guardians of the Meara have a precious secret to keep. The white horses on their island give birth to unicorns, in demand all over the world for their healing magic. Cirrus, born to a unicorn, is the rarest of the rare. He is a Pegasus. Gerad is already accustomed to danger. Becoming Cirrus' Guardian nearly cost him his life. Now, a unicorn of the Meara has been captured, and her Guardian Edith has returned to the island alone. If the man who holds the unicorn is not stopped, the kingdom of Britain will fall, and the island will lose its only ally. Without the help of King Eadward, Gerad and Edith cannot hope to rescue the unicorn before the Blue Baron kills her. But Gerad has an enemy, and he is with the king.
