27th July 2019 – We can now reveal that the title of our next YA novel is A Throne Of Swans. We’re so excited to introduce readers to the world of Solanum, a kingdom ruled by a noble elite who can shapeshift into birds representing their family bloodline. When her father dies, 18 year old Aderyn travels to the court of her uncle the king, seeking the truth about her mother’s murder six years earlier. A risky move, since Aderyn has a secret that – if it becomes known – will jeopardize her position and her life. As she is drawn into the dark corruption of the court, Aderyn discovers the true cost of revenge: to save the land she loves, she may have to sacrifice more than she’d ever bargained for. Inspired by Swan Lake, with hints of both Hamlet and Game of Thrones, you can join the flight on 9th January 2020!
