When Deanna's missing friend Hyde turns up at his father's funeral to claim his corporate empire and inheritance, she is swept into his glittering world of paparazzi and wealth.

 But re-kindling her friendship and the dizzying new emotions along for the ride are the least of her concerns. Because Deanna has a secret – and somebody knows. Someone who is out to get Hyde. And if she doesn't play along, and help the enemy destroy him…she will be sold to the highest bidder in the black market for human swans.

Now Deanna is struggling to break free from the gilded cage that would trap her forever…

What I Have To Say 

This book was a stunningly beautiful modern fairytale that dove into the dark and twisted aspects of humanity. It goes into the details of secrets, hiding and blackmail on a wonderful story that was constantly surprising with twists and turns. 

It fed my love of fairy tales and all things dark and twisted. For me, it read like a more traditional fairytale, and anyone who's read the original versions of Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty will know what I mean by that. It goes beyond the shiny, sparkly sheen that has been given to fairytale.

The Swans were well created. The way that they were not just humans with superpowers, in fact the only difference between them and everyone else is a bad one. They can be made into slaves by anyone willing to trap them and take their feathers.
