More praise for Wonder Light: Unicorns of the Mist
“The combination of horses, unicorns, and an offbeat girl is a winning one.” – Booklist
“Wonder Light is a fantastic story that will make readers see unicorns in a whole new light. Russell’s novel is filled with well-developed characters, incredibly detailed atmosphere, and balances multiple plotlines with grace and ease. Her re-imagining of unicorns takes them out of the fluffy princess/maiden “girl” stories and makes them strong, independent, fully capable creatures that can both protect and destroy.”- Kyla Paterno, Book Buyer, Garfield Book Company
