The Unicorn Road
By Martin Davies
Read by Gareth Armstrong
A story of love and honour, greed and cruelty, and a magical journey into the unknown from the Richard and Judy bestselling author of THE CONJUROR'S BIRD
A young woman leaves her home, summoned to the emperor's court and a husband she barely knows.
On the other side of the world, a famous scholar is sent to find and collect the mysterious beasts of legend in the unknown lands of the East. He takes with him an interpreter, Venn, famous for his special gift with language.
The two groups of travellers are destined to cross paths, revealing the secret motives and hidden passions of those who are brought together.
