|The Veterinarian's Field Guide to Rabid Unicorns by Elise Loyacano Perl|
One clueless veterinarian. One mad scientist. Lots of crazy unicorns. This can’t end well, can it?
Bertie’s just a regular guy whose career is the pits. He’s up to his eyeballs in debt, and his boss drives him bonkers. So when a scientist offers him a job at a Caribbean park, he takes the leap.
But no textbook can prepare him for what awaits: genetically engineered unicorns. And they aren’t your cuddly picture book variety either. These mythical creatures could very well turn a tropical paradise into an island deathtrap.
Now Bertie must find a way to keep these beasts from spiraling into madness. Will it be lights out for Bertie before he can come up with a cure?

Now at thirty-eight, her fairy godfather arrives to tell her she’s a witch, and suddenly she's having to come to terms with the uncertainties of an alarmingly magic-fuelled world. Magic is not like it is in the books and films, and Holly starts to doubt whether her fairy godfather, Partridge Mayflower, is the fey, avuncular charmer he appears.
As a new romance blooms, appearances become magically deceptive, and Holly can’t afford to trust those closest to her, including herself. Accidents start to happen, people die, Old Magic is on the hunt, but in the age-old game of cat and mouse, just who is the feline and who is the rodent?

|Prison Made of Mirrors by Jennifer Loring|
Aithne is a Celtic warrior woman kidnapped from her homeland during a Viking invasion and forced to marry her captor. Shortly before the raid that claims his life, she becomes pregnant with a child whom she believes cursed. Spurred by the dark sorcery she learns from relics her late husband’s mother left behind—including a magic mirror—Aithne descends into a madness that threatens not only her child’s life but also the lives of everyone around her.
In this fairy tale retelling, Breanna is exiled by her mother and taken in by a clan of dwarves who treat her like their own. They soon learn that no one is immune to Aithne’s lunacy—not even the prince to whom Brenna was once betrothed. Brenna must face and conquer death itself if she is to save the land that rightfully belongs to her, and to break her mother’s terrible spell on the man she loves.
