You know how everyone has that book that made them fall in love with reading?
Well this is mine.
This is a retelling of the fairy tale of The Six Swans by the brothers Grimm. It is the story of a young girl whose brothers are turned into swans by an evil stepmother, and about her struggles to break the curse and set her brothers free. And it is beautiful. I have lent this book to a number of friends and every single one of them has fallen in love with it.
I read this book over ten years ago, and it still holds the number one spot of my favourite books. I don’t think it will ever be dethroned.
This book is part of a series, and even though I believe it is definitely the best book in the series, every one of them (there are six – a trilogy and then three companions) is fantastic.
This is a must read for any one who loves historical fiction/fantasy.
