Fenella von Rothbart breaks every rule of her strict guardian when she befriends the swan with the broken wing. Heir to an ancient empire, Fen has power that she's only just beginning to control, and her uncle intends her to assassinate the ruling family of Illychia and regain her family's throne. 

But Fen has no desire to plot revenge on a past she can't even remember. In protest at her destiny, she turns the swan into a young, beautiful girl named Odette. Each night, Odette transforms into a human, but must return to the lake of swans by morning. 

Years pass, and Fen's power grows, power that can't change Odette's desire to fly far away. When Prince Siegfried of Illychia proposes to Odette, Fen's fragile peace is shattered entirely. The three friends are separated as Odette is given a year of freedom, Siegfried is sent to war and Fen is forced into the shelter of the Erlking, the most powerful sorcerer alive and enemy to Illychia.

A twist on the old tale of swan lake from Odile's point of view.

Already love the premise of the story. I kinda feel bad for Fen, but it's actually refreshing to have a heroine that doesn't have the main dude falling for her. Eeee I need an update!!
