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.

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.

A SELECTION OF COMMENTS ON THE SERIES…

5.0 out of 5 stars Best bargain ever! 10 Dec 2013

By UKfan Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
This has to represent the best value read ever released for the Kindle. A Tale of Two Kingdoms continues the Black Swan history with Aelsong and Duffy’s story.  There’s a healthy dose of new characters and significant roles for Elora and Rammel, hooray.  The writing is intelligent and the characters loveable, amusing and just plain wonderful.  (Well, apart from the obligatory villain, of course and even he turned out to be a surprise after his cameos in previous books.)
I’ve already got the first 5 in the saga and if there’s any criticism I could make it’s that number 6 seems a little shorter than some of the others.  Victoria Danann could release a new 500 page episode every month and it wouldn’t be enough!  Still, how handy it’s going to be to read everything in one volume the next time the Must Read Them Again bug strikes.  The Collected Tales, Black Swan 1-6 is worth more than a mere 5 stars…

I’d give it 10 if I could.

5.0 out of 5 stars          Welcome to the World of Black Swan, you will not be disappointed!, December 8, 2013

This review is from: Black Swan Collected Tales, Books 1-6 (Kindle Edition)

I very rarely ever read a book more than once. I  just re-read this series as a whole and have completed the newest book included in this collection : A Tale Of Two Kingdoms. Just when I thought Victoria Dannan could not create an even deeper story line that made you stop and go wow, she did. The beginning of this book was phenomenal and caught me off guard. She not only created a multitude of new characters, but dropped some hints that made me stop and have to re read the paragraph again regarding that vampire. If you are looking for a phenomenal read and an author who can keep you turning pages then you have found one. Mrs. Dannan will entertain you with quotes that will have you saying “Great Paddy” and laughing so hard you will not want to be drinking anything that will come through your nose while reading. This series is full of love, hate, sex ( I so love peanut butter now), vampires staked with a mere toothpick, sexy dancing elves, fire starting half witch/ half sex demon women, a vampire who is also a romance novelist, inter-dimensional assassins, kids that would make any mom proud, great music, and a love that spans dimensions. That is just the tip of the iceberg as far as what this world that Mrs. Dannan invites us into has to offer.

“Your sense of humor, and blend of paranormal styles is fantastic. I have never had a book that had me laughing so hard I could barely breathe. Much less feel the emotions of the characters. There have been so many versions of paranormal “romance” novels out there, that truthfully it was getting boring. I use the word paranormal here carefully, and loosely.

I am not surprised to see you on the bestsellers list, and fully expect to see you there for decades to come. You have taken a genre, and re-written the old school rules. Kudos, and congratulations. Lastly, thank you. I am an avid reader, and will re-read books over and again. Thank you for writing, and thank you for writing such a mind blowing, enjoyable tale. I look forward to many more.” Regards, Laura Hensley

“This series is far more than the total sum of its words.  This is a breathtaking cannot-put-it-down even if it is 3:00 am epic adventure.

The characters are so well developed that the reader identifies with them, cheers them on and can wholly empathize with their trials. This parallel world takes our history, changing its defining moments by a simple deed or decision.  The author plays out these facts and their affect on the current world known by these complex characters.  I am amazed at how the author does this logically, yet dramatically, with realistic results in the universe where those choices or decisions play out.

Ms. Danaan is a masterful writer who weaves a story that flows seamlessly.  She leads you down a path, then takes detours creating new forks in every  road.  You will be kept guessing, you will be intrigued and yes you will be surprised. My Familiar Stranger, The Witch’s Dream and now The Summoners Tale should be on your must read list.

The Black Swan series is one that, through its brilliant and detailed storytelling, will become the classics our kids (when grown) will read about and love in generations to come.

This is not a story about fairies, vampires and witches.  As I stated above, this is an epic adventure that includes things we dream about and what becomes possible in a world where we and they unwittingly co-exist. ” - Christine Merritt

  1. I just finish My Familiar Stranger, and love it. I went to find books 2 thur 4 on B&N and could not fine them. I did find them on Amazon, but my reader can only get books form B&N, PLEASE!!!! offer the other books on B&N. I also saw that book 2 was also free on amazon.

    • Dear Karen -

      The WHOLE reason why I released The Order of the Black Swan COLLECTED TALES, Books 1-3 is so that Nook and Apple readers will have access to Books 2-3. We released it to the online retailers in time for them to have it up by Valentines, but they have their own processes and time schedule. It could be available on B&N and iTunes any day for the same price as the three books as combined single titles – $6.99.

      If you know how to transfer files to your Nook, you can get it on Smashwords right now. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/281909

      THANK YOU FOR ASKING! Hope you love the next 2/3 of the story.

      (The Witch’s Dream was free for Valentines on Amazon as part of the release celebration as a ONE TIME promotion.)

  4. Hi! I’m entering the giveaway at Froggarita’s bookcase today. I haven’t read the series yet but have heard soooooo many great things about it. I look forward to enjoying your series! Thank you!

  5. I happened upon ‘My Familiar Stranger’ after receiving an email about books I would enjoy reading, based on books I had previously read. From the first chapter to the last, I was hooked!! Unlike others, I was excited when Elora chose Ram…they were clearly meant for each other and were destined for their paths to connect. I have already finished books 2, 3, and 4 and cannot wait to get ahold of 5! My husband is not so happy as I have ignored him while relishing in your erotic and compelling stories! Can’t wait to continue reading about the Order of the Black Swan :)

  6. I Absolutley LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! I love how its paranormal romance and how you continue every charachters story throughout the books! Its authors like you that keep me writing if even just for myself. Your work is inspiring to me and I can not wait to read Gathering Storm! Thank you for this amazing series i hope one day they can be turned into movies! :)

  13. My sister and I love these books, we were hooked from the first page of My Familiar Stranger and have eagerly awaited the release of each new book. We have already finished books 2, 3, 4 and 5 and can not wait to get a hold of A Tale of Two Kingdoms. We were wondering if this book will be released by itself at some point of will it only be part of Black Swan Collected Tales.
