Skandar and the Unicorn Thief

Written by A.F. Steadman

Skandar and the Unicorn Thief is a book based in the UK where humans bond to unicorns (they are technically alicorns because they have wings) and then get elemental abilities. After they train for a while they get to participate in the Chaos Cup, which is a race where they get to use their elemental abilities. Skandar is about to take the hatchery test (the test to see if you might be destined for a unicorn) when he is turned away at the door. At midnight that night, a unicorn rider flies Skandar to the door where you see whether or not you are a true unicorn rider. He gets a unicorn, but it is of the banned spirit element; so how will he keep his unicorn?
