Video Trailer: SwanSong

Cantwell-SwanSongRhyn, a Wolleni depressed over the death in childbirth of his beloved half-Tslyddi wife, is ordered by the king to marry his wife’s sister. But Eva becomes jealous of Rhyn’s children and plots to turn them into swans. The spell goes awry; the children are only partially transformed. Worse, they must spend 900 years in their new shapes, and they may never be normal again. But at least they can still sing.

Based on an Irish tragedy, SwanSong is the story of how Neeve, Kennet, Corwin and Kyl cope with their transformed bodies in a world where magic is dying.

SwanSong, the young adult fantasy by Lynne Cantwell, is available from, Amazon UK, Smashwords, and other online retailers.
