Can she gain the allies she needs to free herself and the other swan-maidens from their magical slavery?A monumental tale of loyalty and betrayal, of magic used for good and for evil, of love both carnal and pure, and of the incredible duality of human nature, The Black Swan is a rich tapestry which is sure to be recognized as a masterpiece of fantasy.

I love this book. I have read my copy over and over and over and it is nearly falling apart. I love the way Odile grows and changes throughout the story, how she questions and learns and becomes closer to the swan maidens, until the end when all is set right. I love the slight twist on the usual Swan Princess story. It's just a really great book. Give it a try.
