This story is a delightful mix between farce and fantasy. The American culture is skillfully portrayed with all its weakness and strengths, but at the same time the fantasy element blends in flawlessly. Kathryn Koldwell is a normal mom and wife, excepting that she has a unicorn, who has forgiven her for not being a virgin, along with several other unusual animal companions. Her happy life is disrupted by legal action because her property happens to be a rest stop for a flock of migrating dragons [...]
In short, ignore the cover. This isn't a children's book as the cover implies. It's a great little cozy fantasy. Fun read! Sort of a soccer mom persona in an urban fantasy setting.

This is a very unique urban fantasy story wonderfully written. Kat is not your everyday mundane mom, although she is plagued by everyday mundane problems every mother deals with, along with legal problems with the magical creatures she rehabilitates for the good of the community.Things go awry when evil sorcerers plot to take over their magically mundane world. The characters and her fantasy worlds are well developed and entertaining. There is more than one mystery in this fast moving adventure. [...]
Adorable. I want there to be more.
