Already raking in five-star reviews from Readers’ Favorite for all three books,  ‘Children of Swan, The Land of Taron’ trilogy whisks readers off to a strange and unsettling world where parents are missing, siblings can’t be found, and life is held cheap.

I was transfixed on every page and impressed by her ability to keep the story so action-packed and full of surprises and twists at every turn while, at the same time, keeping everything flowing smoothly. No detail was overlooked and the characters were very engaging.” — Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite (read readers’ favorite reviews).

The book is utterly gorgeous, beautifully written and presented, evocative and moving with a fast pace that nudges you along a never-ending ride of wonder. It’s almost easy to be a bit starstruck and dazzled by how quickly you find yourself in such a grandiose plot involving space politics and disappearing family members that stretches light years apart. It’s fast, yet quite fluid, and draws you in quite naturally even if at times it really does feel a bit like a flume ride, whizzing past bits here and there only to have to pick up on them later.” — James Grimsby, Self-Publishing Review (read more).

The story unfolds with two children discovering one day that their parents have disappeared and their young brother Bo is bawling his eyes out. The world turns upside down for teenage sibling rivals Jack and Brianna and what follows is a series of unexpected and challenging circumstances that puts their determination and resourcefulness to the test.

Much to the distress of their children, Marcus and Zelda have returned to their home planet, Cygnore.  They are runaway prince and princess of Bara and Rion who have happily and peacefully lived on Earth for twelve years under the name of ‘Goodman’. Bo, the youngest son, is kidnapped. In hot-headed pursuit, Jack and Brianna, both 16-years-old, plunge into a wormhole and emerge in Taron. Little do they know that Lord Shusha is plotting against their father Prince Marcus, and their presence in Taron provides him with the means to further his vicious plans. Locals catch them and bring them to an arena where Jack finds himself fettered to a wall and examined by a smoldering-eyed and blue-skinned young woman of Bara, Lady Cici.

Lady Cici is the daughter of Lord Shusha and has come to the arena to have them killed. She is about to be engaged to Prince Marcus and she, along with her father feels that the teens might be a threat to Marcus’ life. That is why they must be killed in the arena, where slaves fight for their lives on a routine basis.

‘Children of Swan’ will strike a chord with readers both young and old through its intricate and wholly-unique new world, its band of captivating characters and an overall plot unlike anything else on the market. The book is available for purchase on Amazon in Kindle and paperback format.
