Author : Nicola M. Cameron

Genre : Fantasy Romance

I received this book free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

A fantasy novel set in Victorian England, Shadow of the Swan tells the story of Louisa Wallingford, destined to be the wife of Avery, a merciless Fae king, through a deadly pact made by a foolish ancestor. The Ministry of Antiquities assigns Sir Henry Carstairs, the Ministry’s most powerful vampire to outwit Avery and protect Louisa. 

Louisa has always wanted to work at the Ministry of Antiquities, studying the myths and legends of the world to uncover the real shifters, time travelers and magicians behind them. But she never imagined that she would find herself at the center of a dangerous battle between the British Empire and the Land of Faerie. 

Henry Carstairs has pledged to do whatever it takes to protect his country. But marrying a clever, beautiful scholar was not exactly how he thought he’d be serving his country.

With richly detailed world building, the author juxtaposes the world of Victorian England with the world of Fae, vampires and shifters. The plot is tightly woven, centered around the shocking secret that makes the Fae king target Louisa. 

Shadow of the Swan is a suspenseful read, with engaging characters, striking plot twists and a compelling setting.
