Teaser Tuesday #4: Rampant

"Unicorns are man-eating monsters.
They don't have wings, they aren't lavender or sparkly, and you could never catch one to ride without its goring you through the sternum.

And even if it somehow managed to miss you major arteries - and it never misses - you'd still die from the poison in it's horn.
But don't worry. My great-great-great-great-great-aunt Clothilde killed the last one a hundred and fifty years ago."

    @Wrighty Thanks! A book about killer unicorns almost can't go wrong...

    @Kaye It indeed is quite different!

    @Miss Page-Turner A international giveaway, that sounds awesome, I will check it out

    @Jessica Armenta I actually wasn't, hehe. The second I heard "killer unicorns" I knew I had to have this book. I mean, that's so stupid it's awesome.

    @Jo I always knew there was something sinister about those creatures... Anyway, thanks!

    Wow, that's a pretty heavy teaser! I'm wondering whether or not I should try this one. It seems to me like it would give me the creeps. I'm thinking the reason the unicorns got so angry is because they don't get the same amount of love that horses and even zebras get. I'd give them a hug, but you know, poison and all...
