The two friends find themselves caught up in a dangerous adventure to save the world's last herd of wild unicorns. Sneaking out of camp at night, they must track down the captured unicorns, help them escape to safety in the ancient and mysterious forest, and keep them secret so no one can harm them ever again.

'Young readers are bound to fall for Guardians of the Wild Unicorns, an adventure tale that melds the real and the fantastic with warmth and humour.'

– The Herald

'Lewis and Rhona's heroic story is suffused with genuinely funny moments, as well as a real sense of jeopardy and some painful revelations about their personal circumstances. Set in the stunning wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, and with an underlying environmental message, this adventure thriller for middle grade readers mixes mythology and suspense in a contemporary page-turner.'

– BookTrust

'Littleson has achieved something impressive: an entirely new and topical angle on the unicorn myth. Land ownership and land use, biodiversity and conservation issues are all explored in subtle ways, opening many possible avenues for learning to classroom teachers. But first and foremost, Guardians of the Wild Unicorns is a story – an adventure of young people defying their fears and breaking the rules to achieve something worth fighting for. They may be insecure, lonely, incapable or burdened with responsibilities they did not seek, but their choices can make a positive difference – an empowering concept for young readers...Solid, sure storytelling.'

– The Wee Review, 5 Stars

'Guardians of the Wild Unicorns is a fantastically enchanting and exciting adventure story that absolutely grips you from the first page. Set against a real and familiar background, it is a believable and engaging tale of friendship, human nature and magical unicorns... A fantastic adventure and a powerful novel which I absolutely loved!'

'The quality of writing throughout is wonderful... This is Littleson's most assured work yet, and once again she pulls no punches as she delves deep into her leading characters' previously hidden home lives to show the resilience the youth of today require.'
