About The Book
Pale, cold mistress of the serpent’s lair, blood red lips and coal black hair…
Enter the world of the Black Swan, a dark and seductive tale where things are not always as they seem. Odile is the reviled villainess of Aarroughac, a castle inhabited by the evil wizard, Count Rothebart. After a sinister magic sweeps through the land and results in death, Odile is accused of the crime. Von Rothebart vanishes, leaving her to face the wrath of an entire kingdom alone until a mysterious stranger with powers of his own comes along.
With vengeance as his guide, Lord Azarus di Caspari hunts an ancient curse. When he crosses paths with the Black Swan of legend, he immediately makes up his mind to use the temptress’s magic for his own devices. But when Azarus learns that the story of the sorceress might not be true, disappointment gives way to desire. Spells are cast and secrets are revealed, but can love exist in the shadow of two dark hearts such as theirs?
Are the tales of the Black Swan true? Is she a murderess and an evil sorceress to be feared or is she the only thing standing between true evil and the fall of a kingdom? Only time will tell as the magical story of the Black Swan unfolds
I was provided a copy of Odile for an honest review.
First off, I need to start by saying, that Miss Shane’s book covers are some of the most stunning I have seen. It is what initially drew me to her work, seeing the cover of her first novel The Snow Maiden. The is also the first book in her Enchanted Lands series. Although it is a standalone, it is a must read!!
Amanda, is an amazing storyteller and her words spread across the pages like magic.
Told in both the past and present, the retelling of Odile is seductive and captivating. The lure of her story unfolding page by page, as Miss Shane takes you into world of the Black Swan.
I am always left with a bewitched feeling at the end of Miss Shane’s novels as though she has cast a spell on you. Odile, Legend of the Black Swan is no different.
I am really loving the Enchanted Land series, and this is another 5* read for me.
