#BookReview: The Flight of Swans by Sarah McGuire

About the Book:

Based on the Brothers Grimm's fairy tale Six SwansThe Flight of Swans follows Ryn's journey to save her family and their kingdom.

Princess Andaryn's six older brothers have always been her protectors--until her father takes a new Queen, a frightening, mysterious woman who enchants the men in the royal family. When Ryn's attempt to break the enchantment fails, she makes a bitter bargain: the Queen will spare her brothers' lives if Ryn remains silent for six years.

Ryn thinks she freed her brothers, but she never thought the Queen would turn her brothers into swans. She never thought she'd have to discover the secret to undoing the Queen's spell while eluding the Otherworldly forces that hunt her. And she never thought she'd have to do it alone, without speaking a single word.

As months as years go by, Ryn learns there is more to courage than speech . . . and that she is stronger than the Queen could have ever imagined.
 




About the Author: Sarah McGuire is a nomadic math teacher who sailed around the world aboard a floating college campus. She writes fairy tale retellings and still hopes that one day she'll open a wardrobe and stumble into another world. Coffee and chocolate are her rocket fuel. She wishes Florida had mountains, but she lives there anyway with her husband (who wrote this bio in less than three minutes!) and their family.

My Review:  I really enjoyed how the main character in this one was mute for six years.  It made the story one of a kind and really different.  The plot/story was even better and I really loved how this retelling went along.  I loved hearing Ryn's thoughts and being in the story with her. This was a great fantasy for middle grade readers that will get them to love reading! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes the perfect book for fantasy lovers!
