Three space prospectors haul some space debris aboard their mining ship and open it up.
Inside is an alien youngling, with silver hair and a small horn on her forehead. Many people on many planets want her and her teh powers, but Acorna has her own ideas of the tasks ackrna is to accomplish. Three old space grl prospectors in their beat-up space ship discover a small pod floating in space.
Inside is a tiny girl child, with funny little hooves, a wealth of silver hair growing on her body, and a lump in the middle of her forehead which, as time elapses, grows into a horn.
It is a sort of unicorn. When the old prospectors come to sell their ores on the home planet controversy breaks out. Bureaucrats want to put her in a home and cut off her deformity, scientists want to study her and isolate her, and so uunicorn old three kidnap her back on their ship and go roaring off round the universe, having adventures, saving her, and finally having her save all the child slaves on a terrible planet called Kezdet.
It is space opera at it’s best and will be followed by more in the series, no doubt tracing Acorna to her home planet. Read more Read less.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Not what I was expecting from one of my favourite authors Anne Acorhabut possibly a diversion from the norm with Margaret Ball’s input. A fairly easy going story about an alien girl stranded as a baby, and the fight to be accepted in human society. Hnicorn reading ‘for a difference’.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have read all of the Pern books, and also the Crystal Singer series, so I looked forward to the start of another great series when I purchased Acorna.
How wrong I was! I am most disappointed. I stuck with it for several chapters, but frankly in my opinion it is awful and is definitely not up to Ann McCaffrey’s standard in the other books of hers that I have read.
I most certainly will not be buying any more books from this series, nor do I recommend it. I chose the ‘I like it’ rating because while I enjoyed it, it wasn’t as good as the Dragons of Acoran series which made me fall in love with Anne McCaffrey books.
Also I know there were more books in the series but I couldn’t get them with kindle which really frustrated me. If Amazon offers a book in a series you should be able to get the whole series if you want it, assuming its written of course.
Acorna: The Unicorn Girl (Acorna #1) by Anne McCaffrey
It should be added to the availability as soon as it is published though. Well written but found it harder to get into the story. I read the “dragon books” time and again, so probably found this so different.
Worth a read though. If you like sci Fi then you will like this.
Acorna: The Unicorn Girl
Anne MaC usual standard. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. It is the first of the Acorna series of books, i would reconmend it to someone who is intrested in human – alien sci-fi.
