BY THE HORNS VOLUME 1 - Elodie hates unicorns. For nearly a year, she's dedicated her life to killing them all for trampling her husband. Exiled from her village home for selfishly neglecting her duties, Elodie and her companion, Sajen, search the continent of Solothus to exact bloody revenge. But to make unicorns extinct she'll need to fake an alliance with Zoso and Rigby, two of the very beasts she hates most, and battle four wind sorcerers who are extracting magic from all the mystical creatures on the continent. With the ability to rip off the unicorn horns and combine them to form wizard-slaying weapons, Elodie has a fighting chance. But will she decide to use those gifts to save magic in the world? Or destroy all the unicorns left alive?

BY THE HORNS VOLUME 2: DARK EARTH PART 1 - Six months after their battle in the sky with the evil sorceress Feng Po, Elodie, Sajen and Evelyn are back in Wayfarer, settling into their new lives as farmers. Unfortunately, their quiet days spent tilling the land prove short-lived when a blight begins devastating Solothus. To find a cure, Elodie and her friends must take up a new quest and sail across the ocean to the unicorn homeland of Yalastra. But getting there is no easy task when marauders and monsters block their path at every turn, and the ghosts of their past actions come back to haunt them. Collects By the Horns: Dark Earth #1-6 (Legacy #9-14).
