Tanith Lee is a British author. She is a writer that has written extensively in many mediums and is known for her writing in the fantasy, horror, and science fiction genres. In her time as a published author, she contributed to fourteen collections, wrote seventy seven novels, and composed nearly three hundred short stories.

Lee was born on September 19, 1947. She passed away on May 24, 2015. During her long career, she did more than just write stories. Lee wrote four radio plays that were aired on the BBC broadcast. She also contributed to the UK television series Blake’s 7, a cult science fiction television show. Tanith Lee didn’t always write full time; before that, she worked as a waitress, shop assistant, file clerk, and an assistant librarian.

Tanith Lee first became a published author with the publication of her short story Eustace in 1968. She furthered her career and public awareness of her work when several of her stories were published in fantasy anthologies.

Her first full length fictional novel to come out was the children’s novel The Dragon Hoard, which was published in 1971. Her first novel of fiction for the adult market was titled The Birthgrave. It was released in 1975 and is the debut novel in the Birthgrave series, which would have two more books come out to make it a trilogy.

Lee has done very well ever since Daw Books USA accepted her novel, an adult fantasy story, and put it out for mass consumption by the readers as a paperback for the mass market. Ever since then, Tanith has kept an output of writing and churned out novels that readers have been eagerly picking up and reading for years. Her novels have been very popular and earned her several awards.

Jaive is a sorceress and she lives in a simple home with her daughter, Tanaquil. Tanaquil and her mother are shocked one day when a black unicorn shows up. Not a real one, but one that is mechanical in nature. No one knows anything about it, but Tanaquil seems to understand everything about the beast in an instant.

If she knows anything in this world, it’s that this unicorn has come for her. Jaive is a sorceress but she always thought that Tanaquil had no magic inside of her at all and had not inherited any of her powers. However, Tanaquil is shocked because this unicorn came for her, and it needs something from her.

The young but bold Tanaquil may have a talent for magic after all– something that she never thought was possible or even thought about all that much. Her mother was always the talented one. She’s always had a bit of a knack for taking little parts of machinery and fiddling with them until she put something together to make, but she never thought that it was magic.

Seemed more like good engineering ability, that’s all. But with the help of The Peeve, her round little companion that is constantly getting into trouble, and a bit of luck and ability, she may be able to put this black unicorn together after all. Because deep down, she can feel it: that’s what it wants. To be whole, and come into being.
