Paranormal romance review of A tale of Two Kingdoms by Victoria Danann

Black Swan Collected Tales (Volume 1, Books 1-6)

The Order of the Black Swan is a serial saga including My Familiar Stranger, The Witch’s Dream, A Summoner’s Tale, Moonlight, Gathering Storm, and NEVER BEFORE RELEASED Book 6, A Tale of Two Kingdoms.

Once upon a time a girl lost everything familiar. She escaped death by being forced into an experiment that left her in another world where modern day knights, elves, vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and fae became her allies, friends and family. She discovered a place where adventure intersects fairytales, where honor is more than an ideal, and she learned that love can find you in the strangest places, when you're least expecting it, even when you're far, far from home. This is the story of Elora Laiken's strange and wonderful journey. It is also the story of those whose lives she touches along the way.

Book six in the series is one of my favorite so far.  It is an amazingly epic love story that will live through the ages in Victoria Danann's world.  The elves and the fae have hated each other for generations - but no one seems to quite remember why.  Imagine the surprise when the fae prince and the elf prince find out they are a true mated pair - that nothing can come between them - except maybe everything.  The story walks us through their struggles to be together with an odd group of interlopers on their side.  This book would by Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending.

The best part is we still get to see a few of our favorite characters from the previous books.  I think that is what I love best about the writing - her ability to keep the story moving and just about everyone involved.  I've come to love each and every character.  They all have such a distinct personality and their relationships are all very memorable.  This is a must read series - so get the Collected Tales while they're at 99 cents.

Best-selling ROMANCE with Paranormal, Sci-fi, and Fantasy Flair.

If you’re looking for something new and different in PNR, you’ve come to the right place.

I write unapologetic romances with uniquely fresh perspectives on paranormal creatures, characters, and themes. Add a dash of scifi and a flourish of fantasy to enough humor to make you laugh out loud and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. My heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, or past life therapists. My heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners – usually – whether they be elves, demons, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires.

I have authored and illustrated Seasons of the Witch calendars and planners for fifteen years and teach magickal arts for Seasons in Avalon. I live in The Woodlands, Texas which is why I sometimes joke about being the witch in the woods.
