ABOUT THIS BOOK
When her father dies just before her birthday, seventeen-year-old Aderyn inherits the role of Protector of Atratys, a dominion in a kingdom where nobles are able to transform at will into the bird that represents their family bloodline. Aderyn's ancestral bird is a swan. But she has not transformed for years, not since witnessing the death of her mother - ripped apart by hawks that have supposedly been extinct since the long-ago War of the Raptors.
With the benevolent shelter of her mother and her father now lost, Aderyn is at the mercy of her brutal uncle, the King, and his royal court. Driven by revenge and love, she must venture into the malevolent heart of the Citadel in order to seek the truth about the attack that so nearly destroyed her, to fight for the only home she has ever known and for the land she has vowed to protect.
Enchanting and compelling, with exquisitely drawn characters, A THRONE OF SWANS by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr opens up a wonderful new world of magic and subterfuge that I cannot wait to return to.
When Aderyn's father dies, she becomes the Protector of her dominion but she is in great danger. In a world where the nobility can easily transform into the bird that represents their house and everyone else is considered worthless, Aderyn can no longer fly - not since the day that she was attacked and her mother was murdered in front of her. There are those in the kingdom who would kill her if they knew the truth and as Aderyn travels to the Court, Aderyn must play a dangerous game to hide her secret while trying to uncover the truth about her mother's killers. But who can she truly trust? And as traps are set, will Aderyn unlock the secrets of the past and find her abilities again?
It has been a while since I have read Fantasy/YA but this book made me fall in love with these genres all over again. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Aderyn, who is feisty and headstrong even if it does land her in trouble time and time again. The setting is excellently depicted and I could really imagine the kingdom and its people as I read each page. There is danger, friendship, secrets, and love, and when I turned the final page of A THRONE OF SWANS I was already itching to get my hands on the sequel.
An addictive new series that is sure to please fantasy and YA readers alike, I highly recommend A THRONE OF SWANS by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr.
Katharine and Elizabeth Corr are sisters originally from Essex, now living in Surrey. When they both decided to write novels - on account of fictional people being much easier to deal with than real ones - it was obvious they should do it together. They can sometimes be found in one of their local coffee shops, arguing over which character to kill off next. Katharine and Elizabeth are authors of the spell-binding trilogy The Witch's Kiss.
