Why do I love this cover?
I have been wildly in love with horses my entire life, although I haven't been lucky enough to ever have been owned by one.... Of course, unicorns, as their close relatives, claim my admiration as well!
This particular unicorn is breathtakingly, magically, beautiful. Since I know something about the Arabian breed (my favorite), I can see that this unicorn was inspired by an Arabian stallion. The features are typical of the breed. And oh, those soulful eyes.... That luxuriously flowing mane.... And then there's that golden horn.... The horse is a strange shade of lovely blue-green, which makes him even more beautiful to my eyes. How I wish I could be friends with this magnificent creature in real life!
