Today’s guest post is for the tour for MG fantasy “The Shadow of the Unicorn II: The Deception”. Enjoy!
So what is it that makes people intrigued with unicorns? Is it their beauty, their majesty, their grace? Or is it their magic? But more fascinating yet is why is it impossible to find unicorns anywhere except as statues or on coats of arms? Find out when you read Suzanne de Montigny’s The Shadow of the Unicorn series.
Watch the book trailer for her award-winning novel, The Shadow of the Unicorn: The Legacy, book one. http://youtu.be/St9OsyK974o
Then watch her most recent release, The Shadow of the Unicorn II: The Deception.
What’s great about these books is that Ms. de Montigny donates half of all her proceeds to the Third World Eye Care Society, a group of eye specialists who travel to third world countries delivering thousands of pairs of glasses and performing surgery for free. Ms. de Montigny was directed to TWECS by her ophthalmologist when she developed a visual impairment that has now been mostly cured as a result of good eye care. Because she has two foster children in third world countries, she knew how difficult it was to get the proper eye care she received, and so decided to give back.
The Shadow of the Unicorn also comes with a reproducible study guide for free download from her website. http://www.suzannedemontigny.com. Second guide to come soon.
About the Book
Author: Suzanne de Montigny

Ulysees’ breath was ragged, and his heart filled with terror when they galloped toward the herd pursued by an enraged Icarus.
How did the Legacy of Azaria transform into the world fear it has, the unicorns barely existing hidden in the depths of the forest? Why is Icharus, the Great Stallion, so cruel and ruthless? And who is Jaresh, the invisible being who takes away their powers? Angry, the young colt Ulysees and his friend Téo rebel, following an abandoned trail where they’re discovered by humans. Now the entire herd must make an exodus. But Ulysees discovers there’s more danger then just humans when he meets a giant creature who warns them of impending doom…
