Blog Tour: The Black Swans by @antrimcycle #review

Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
Date published: March 2015

Taisie MacDonnell is a quiet girl who loves knitting and Celtic music. When a traditional Irish group moves to her small town of Antrim, Maine, she's thrilled. And that the handsome pipe player she met at a fair is one of the band members makes it all the more exciting. 

Conn McLaren and his siblings that make up the band, The Black Swans, are wanderers, moving from place to place. They have a secret that they must hide, a curse they have been under for many years, placed on them by the Fae at the behest of their step-mother, Aoife. 

Taisie has no idea that becoming involved with Conn, the handsome pipe player, will enmesh her in magic, a centuries-old enchantment and pursuit by the Fae. 

This book is a modern retelling of the old Irish story "The Children of Lir".


This was a novel that really does a great job of melding different genres. You have Fantasy and Paranormal that tend to go together pretty well, and I adored the addition of the Irish Mythology / Celtic Tales it really added an additional layer to the story. 

I would have liked a little more of a connection between the main characters and a little more to their romance unfolding, but perhaps I will have to wait for the next book. 

About the Author

N.W. Moors lives in Portland, Maine, the land of lobster and pine trees. She grew up in Connecticut and retired north(it's nice along the coast in winter). She's a voracious reader and avid traveler - she loves to visit Great Britain and Ireland. Researching trips meant that she tries to learn as much about the area as possible and listen to great Celtic music. She's also a knitter and hiker/walker with two cats(the cats don't walk).

She truly appreciates you sharing this adventure with her. She will continue to write about magic, love, and the small town of Antrim, Maine. Please leave reviews and like her Facebook page or follow her blog or twitter feed for further updates.
