My Review of
The Tethered Unicorn by E.M.G Wixley and Narrated by Leo De Haan.
The Tethered Unicorn is a gritty, emotional audio story. I found Mike to be such a well-written and complex character. He loves Rosy, but his drug habit, temper, and dealing turn him into such an aggressive character. Rosy to me seemed such a young and confused girl, easily controlled but able to see her life would end her up dead. I also found Rosy’s relationship with Spencer and his need to help her as he couldn’t help his son very touching.
The story itself follows Rosy and Mike as they deal drugs and try to hide from those who they have crossed. Will the people who are out to get them to discover their hiding place? Will Rosy see Mike for who he is and get free of the dangerous life she’s living? You’ll have to read and find out.
I thought the author did an amazing job of showing her readers not only what drugs and bad deals can make a person feel like and change emotionally, but also how the body itself can look so close to the end and yet the person can still be wanting something more for his/her life.
I would recommend this audiobook if you like gritty, emotional stories with great characters that you’ll love to hate and want more for at the same time.
