Product Description

Product Description

There’s no place like home.

USA TODAY Bestselling author, Victoria Danann, brings us the paranormal fantasy adventure Book Haven called #1 BEST INDIE READ of 2013.

Black Swan Knight, Sir Engel Storm, is acting like somebody else. His friends, former members of the preeminent team of vampire hunters, reunite to try to salvage his image and reputation before it's shredded beyond repair. Meanwhile a second wave assassination team from Elora Laiken's home dimension arrives at Jefferson Unit at the worst possible time, when it’s been left defended by only the misfit bad boys of Z Team, the rookie - Glendennon Catch, the Lady Elora Laiken, and the boys in training who may someday make the cut and become knights of The Order of Black Swan.

This is a tale that proves that the smallest turn of fate can send life spinning off in unimaginable directions.

If you love a grand mix of fantasy, science fiction, adventure, tears, laughter, and complex stories, this book is right for you. 17+

The Lightning Room Literary Reviews:

I like my superheroes to be a bit on the dark side, maybe a little tattered around the edges, but stark and strong and uncompromising. Engel Storm stands unbowed in the face of whatever comes at him. He shines like the light to vanquish all darkness. I’ve always liked Stormy, he’s affable and effective and he always rises to the occasion. But I’ve never done anything more than just like him, really. Until now.

After this book, I am officially a giant fan of Engel Storm. Not because he shows a dark side in this book, but because he is so utterly possessed of such awe-inspiring grace in the face of, well, pretty much anything you could possibly imagine. He is Superman and I don’t think I’ve ever loved him more.

I can’t really tell you much about what happens in this book except that Elora is tested, yet again, against her heritage and those around her find new and previously unknown strength in the face of adversity in order to help protect her. We get to meet a new motley crew of Knights that are more than a little intriguing. And there is so much lost and so much gained.

This book is an epic song. It absolutely entranced me right from the start. You know those songs that reach in with fingers made of wishes and wrap around your heart and before you know it, you’re a different person with a different point of view? This book is one of those.

Victoria Danann is brilliant and she has absolutely outdone herself with this book. To say that it’s gorgeous is vastly inadequate. To say that this is one of those books that I will want to keep with me, right up next to the skin, for the rest of my life, comes closer.

More About the Author

If you're looking for something new and different in paranormal fantasy, you've come to the right place.

I write uniquely fresh perspectives on paranormal creatures, characters, and themes. My heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demons, demonologists, psychics, or past life therapists. My heroes have brains, character, and good manners - usually - whether they be elves, fae, elementals, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires.

My first book, My Familiar Stranger, was nominated for Reviewers' Choice and Readers' Choice Awards. Every book in the series spent weeks in the best seller lists after release and has enjoyed high rankings on various Listopias.

The Order of the Black Swan is a series that is also a serial saga. Each book is an episodic installment in an ongoing story. Join me for the adventure.

Best-selling cross-genre FANTASY for 17+. A little scifi, a little romance, a lot of paranormal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 5 Oct 2013
By Shelly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Omy what a book. I thought the previous books in the series were really really good but wow this one tops it's counterparts. With all that's going on with Rosie and her abilities and the possibility of another attack they couldn't afford the class A mess up by deliverance but he managed a massive one and then maid it worse omg what a turn of events. I'm glad that Glen managed to keep his head above water in the role he was entrusted with amongst falling in love which was a shocker I didn't see that coming but very pleased it did. I'm glad that we got to hear about all the character we've come to love throughout the series. There's some sad moments in this one that had me in tears, it's got lots of action and keeps you needing to know what's going to happen next. Hats of to Victoria danann you've done it again what an amazing series. Can't wait until December for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG Fabulous 19 Sep 2013
By annare
Format:Kindle Edition
Length: 1:59 Mins
This book picks up roughly where No 4 ended. Elora, Ram & baby Helm, have moved back into Jefferson Unit. They hope that this will keep Elora safe, from another attack, from the Raglenclan.
Storm & Litha are at their Vineyard with their new baby daughter Elora "Rosie" Rose. Who, although only being 6 weeks old. Is already proving she is a very special little girl.
Jefferson Unit is going through changes. It is temporarily being converted from a hunter facility to a Training & Research Institution, so there is only a skeleton staff, and a group of young Trainees. Sol decides that it is the right time to take his very first vacation with his Bride to be Farnsworth, leaving Glen in charge.
Unfortunately this is when The Raglenclan, decide to attack.
From here on the story really becomes exciting. The way everyone works together to defend Jefferson Unit & more importantly PROTECT Elora, is wonderful. I had a lump in my throat a couple of times, because of how some of the young Trainees stepped up and proved how they were destined to be a Black Knight. We also meet up with the rest of our much loved characters, although Storm is not quite himself!! We also have the dubious pleasure? of the Z Team, who have been called back on their last chance to prove themselves worthy of being called Black Knights.
There were some really funny moments, where I laughed out loud, and some very sad moments, where I was shocked & very sad.
This is definitely the best book of the series so far. It was a complete rollercoaster ride. Victoria Danann is the one of the best story tellers I have ever come across. She draws you in to the story, so that you instantly connect with the Characters.
I absolutely loved it. Fabulous.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable series 6 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It gives background so can be read as stand alone, but much better as part of the series. Characters are well enough drawn to allow the reader to become "friends" with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Read! 3 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say, Victoria Dannan is one of my favourite authors and with this 5th book she hit the mark again! I cannot put her books down once I start to read them and this one was no different. The characters are so good, the plot lines are believable the books just come alive. If you haven't read the Black Swan series what are you waiting for??!!??

5.0 out of 5 stars Never disappoints 3 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have loved every book in the series. You really feel like you know the characters, I have laughed and cried with them throughout every story and it is hard not to because of the way Victoria Danann writes. If I have to put a negative it would be that I wish the stories could be a little longer, I get so into them that I have read them all in a day or two!! Can't wait for the next instalment . Whatever will B team get up to next?
