Romance and adventure combine in a breathtaking reworking of a classic fairy tale.

Darkness has fallen across a kingdom far, far away. The queen is dead - killed in the forest by a terrifying beast - and her daughter, Alexandra, suspects that the new woman in her father's life is more than she seems. Exiled and betrayed, Alexandra must face magic, murder and the loss of all she holds dear in a desperate struggle against evil.

Review quote

"Lyrical, psychological... the stuff of fairy tale, which means in this instance danger and darkness and what we all want - a kiss and a happy ending." (The Irish Times) "The writing is confident and the multilayered plot never falters. A book for all ages to read and re-read. More please, author!" (Amazon user review)"

About Zoe Marriott

Zoe Marriott lives in North East Lincolnshire with two cats, named Echo and Hero, and the Devil Hound, otherwise known as Finn. She says she has been waiting to write The Swan Kingdom, her debut novel, since she was a child. "When I was six, my sister bought me an illustrated picture book version of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans. The story immediately captured my imagination and has stayed with me ever since."
