Title: My Familiar Stranger (The Order of the Black Swan : Book One)
Author: Victoria Danann
Source: Author request
Genre: Paranormal/Sci-fi Romance
Minutes ahead of
inevitable assassination, Elora is accidentally transported to an
alternate dimension similar, but not identical to her own...
course a girl could suffer worse problems than having gorgeous guys in
love with her. Perhaps more importantly, in the midst of an epidemic of
vampire related abductions, can she stay alive long enough to choose
between the devotion of the noble and stalwart knight who has saved her
life twice, the charm and sexual magnetism of the fun loving elf who
wants to claim her as his mate, or the passion of the intensely
seductive, six-hundred-year-old vampire?
My Familiar Stranger is a
full length, stand alone, Paranormal Romance novel that also sets up
the foundation for the series. It will appeal to lovers of paranormal
romance, fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal mystery.
My Familiar Stranger was a wonderfully engrossing paranormal romance with just a dash of science fiction that grabbed me from page one and didn't let go!
Ms. Danann absolutely knows how to get a series going. My Familiar Stranger created a captivating new world with so many possibilities. With elves, beserkers, fairies, vampires and who knows what else running around a society parallel to our own there is so much potential! The world building was awesome. Through Danonn's vivid descriptions I felt like I could actually see the Order's lavish headquarters and the creepy but whimsical Romanian strong-hold.
I don't want to give to much away, but watching the relationships build between Elora and the B-Team was magical. This is no "wham-bam, I'm instantly in love with you" book. The relationships progress over time which makes it that much more heartbreaking when you realize that Elora will have to choose between honoring a debt, true love, or true lust. But fear not, Elora gets her happily ever after just like in her favorite fairy..um....er....I mean elf tales ;)
My Familiar Stranger quickly turned into the kind of book that left my husband and son eating pizza for dinner. Who has time to cook when you could be reading a great book instead?
