Smashwords book reviews by Meredith Anne DeVoe

  • SwanSong on Nov. 19, 2011

    Well-crafted and highly readable prose. Cantwell humanizes the characters of the Irish myth; she brings to reality their centuries-long ordeal. Regret, bitterness, love, forgiveness, hope and resolution are knitted into a tapestry that is never overly sentimental. The pace is measured and economical; yet never feels hurried or truncated. What is perhaps most impressive is the reader's acceptance of the half-swan, half-human characters as she presents them effectively and empathetically. And I was deeply moved by the book’s theme, summed up in the thoughts of the heroine: “...gratitude… [is] the best revenge.”

    I was also drawn in by this book and had a delicious sense of foreboding while reading it. I don't care for vampire stories either but this was different! I found that the story stayed with me and I was affected by Andrea's struggle to find the truth and make her choice... the book is not only engaging but deep. Highly recommended.
