There exists a land filled with power and magic...behind the mist.

What begins as an increasingly strong bond between a horse and his young rider goes beyond extraordinary when an unexpected tragedy launches them on a thrilling journey to the land behind the mist.

Under the guidance and direction provided by Lord Urijah and his Council of the Twelve Ancients, the unicorns serve as the guardian angels to the animals on earth.
Nick is the only human in Celestia-or so it first appears. As they learn more about this magical land, Nick and Jazz are compelled to embark on a rescue mission into the Dark Kingdom that is ruled by the evil unicorn, Hasbadana. Though aided on their journey by special skills and unusual allies, the boy and horse confront powers that threatenn to destroy them in their attempt to save a lost soul.
Join Nick and Jazz as they battle the forces of evil and demonstrate the transcendent power of loyalty and love.

I loved this book. The story evolves around a group of wonderful, strong, brave, and loyal horses and the training they go through in order to join the Legion of the Unicorn. It is filled with analogies that many of us can easily relate to including the incredible power of love, the power of faith, and our constant desire to triumph over evil. Her descriptions of settings, colors, and textures are so real that I could actually visualize the action, see the settings, and feel the emotions as I re
