ARC Review/Giveaway: The Summoner's Tale by Victoria Danann

The Summoner's Tale (The Order of the Black Swan,#3)
Author: Victoria Danann
Source: Author/ Bewitching Book Tours
Genre: PNR/UF
Length: Novel
Release Date: February 14, 2013
Reviewed by CaroleDee

A secret society, a witch, a psychic, vampires, modern day knights, heroes, elves, fae, assassins from another dimension, and fairytales come together where emotions intersect.

Two souls, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle through pain and darkness in an ultimate confrontation with character and an ultimate struggle for life proving that true love waits patiently through lifetimes and finds courage to survive.

Even in the strangest places. Even when you're least expecting it. Even when you're far, far from home.


Danann has a writing style all her own. In the world of PNRs and UFs a lot authors tend to 'love and leave'  characters from book to book. In The Order of the Black Swan series I'm always delighted for the opportunity to revisit my favorites for more than a brief appearance. The serial format that Victoria uses enables the stories of the wonderful B Team to keep being told at length while seamlessly  introducing new characters, love-interests, and plot developments. Just when you think things can't get any better a new twist forms and you're eagerly awaiting the team's newest adventure :)

About the Author

Though works of fiction are a departure for me, I have had this series simmering on the back burner of my mind for years, but time is at a premium. In addition to authoring and illustrating Seasons of the Witch and writing course work for Seasons in Avalon, I play Classic Rock music and manage Houston’s premier variety and R&B band.

I’ve been married to the same person for way more than half my life. I believe in true love and romance, too.

The Order of the Black Swan series will include some of my education in the paranormal and fictionalized anecdotes from my journals during the years when I was a practicing “metaphysician”, but most of the material is fantasy – of course.

  1. It's the last one in the series, isn't it?

    Thanks for the chance! :D

  2. Oh, I just forgot to answer the question:
    I don't have one favorite fairy tale, when I was a kid I love all of them!

  3. I can happily say that nope, there is more to come! Danann has 'Moonlight' scheduled for release in May :)

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Thank you Laurie for having me on the fabulous blog. Thank you Carole for reviewing A Summoner's Tale. Carole is right. There are at least seven books planned for this saga serial and maybe more. We'll see.

    Meanwhile, I'm particularly proud of the BOOK TRAILER for this one. Take a look.

  5. I've always loved BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

  6. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a great story.With cute dwarfs, sweet girl, bad witch, and the handsome prince,what is not to like.

  7. I've always loved the fairy tales and Red Riding hood was probably my favorite.
