Welcome to the online home of Susan Badaracco, fantasy author and self-proclaimed expert on unicorns. The real ones. Not the frolicking, cuddly, rainbow-hued cartoon version. These warriors are gallant defenders and they've taken an Oath to protect their wards. Against man or beast. (the later can be especially daunting) I spin tales of hope, friendship, resilience, and adventure. There's a few belly laughs, and you might shed a tear or two.

The Conclusion of the Nine Jewels series is here! Merek, man of Magik, swore he was only seeking a distraction from the grief of losing his family when he paid that visit to Mughal Akbar’s court. But when he departed the next morning, Akbar’s nine favorite jewels were missing. Centuries later, they still haven’t been found. Now a jinn is holding Gideon and Ashton responsible for returning them.
Gideon may be the custodian of Merek’s manuscript, but the ancient tome is not telling its secrets, and ignoring the jinn isn’t an option. He kidnapped Gideon’s mother and rescuing her took Ashton’s help, an army of monkeys and bears, the near death of a unicorn, and a battle with the demon king of Lanka.
They need to find the missing jewels before anyone else disappears, but there’s a couple of problems. A loyal friend has lost something very important and urgently needs their help urgently and the gems they’re looking for have been scattered around the world and locked up in royal treasuries. Or are they?
There’s unicorns, bloody battles, a dog named Baxter, and the end of a terribly long search.
The Nine Jewels series is compete! Captivating kids, enchanting adults.
