An act of love will break their curse…
The seven princes of Arcainia are cursed and transformed into swans by their step-mother, a wicked witch. Without the princes to run the country and keep it safe from their step-mother’s greedy clutches, Arcainia is ruined…unless Princess Elise, the princes’ foster-sister, can break their curse.
Elise is no hero. She would rather balance expense accounts than become her country’s champion. But, to free her foster-brothers Elise agrees to knit seven shirts made of stinging nettles. She must complete the shirts without uttering a word.
The already dire situation turns perilous when Elise catches the eye of a foreign prince, who drags her back to his family’s castle where she is tormented by the prince’s evil father. With a wicked witch hunting her and the foreign king threatening to kill her, Elise’s loyalty and love are put to the test. She must become Arcainia’s defender, or the country, and her foster-brothers, will be lost.
Wild Swans Reviews:
“I also liked that K.M. Shea put two different paths for readers to choose from. While I agree with many people who said that they wanted K.M. Shea to decide between the two, I like her decision to leave it open to the reader. Most authors choose the path for the reader which usually means that I feel sad for the other suitor(s), so I am glad I got to read both endings.” – Sophie @ SplustBookworms
“The Wild Swans captivated my heart from page one. I found it fascinating and enchanting. It reminded me of the faerie tales from my childhood, but paired well with the adult faerie tale lover in me. It was whimsical, humorous, and elegant. It was very well written and offered a beautiful lesson.” – Darque Dreamer @ Darque Dreamer Reads
