Description
In the first volume of the Acorna series, the infant Acorna was secretly set adrift in a lifepod in an attempt by her parents to save her from the Khlevii who have attacked their spaceship. She was rescued and raised by asteroid miners, growing at an astonishing pace into a young woman with coveted talents and genius. In Acorna's Quest, Acorna travels across deep space in search for her long-lost planet and people. What she doesn't know is that her people have come to her section of the galaxy with a dire warning that the Khlevii war fleet has targeted human space as it's next conquest.

"Acorna has the same atmosphere as the Pern books while having a very appealing and intriguing focus in the character of the unicorn girl. Hope to see more of this story." - Baryon

"I must find my own kind!"

Found as an infant drifting in space, Acorna, the Unicorn Girl, has become a young woman. She still has her tiny, translucent horn, and her "funny" feet and hands. And, she still has her miraculous ability to make plants grow and heal human sickness.

But Acorna has strange dreams of a gentle folk who mind-speak by touching horns. With her "Uncle" Calum, one of the three grizzled asteroid prospectors who rescued, protected, and raised her, she sets off to find her people. No sooner does she leave than a mysterious craft appears, piloted by the Linyaari, a gentle race with telepathic powers.

The Linyaari are roaming the galaxy, spreading the alarm about the deadly Khleev--And searching for a beloved little girl they had given up for lost, long ago...
