The Flight of Swans, an Enchanting New Fantasy Middle-Grade Novel from Carolrhoda Books, Gives a Fresh Take on a Classic Fairy Tale

October 4, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--Author Sarah McGuire spins the much-loved tale of the Brothers Grimm’s Six Swans with new thread in , available this fall from Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner Publishing Group. Fairy tale lovers will delight in this fresh take on a classic story.

Princess Andaryn’s six older brothers have always been her protectors—until her father takes a new Queen, a frightening, mysterious woman who enchants the men in the royal family. When Ryn’s attempt to break the enchantment fails, she makes a bargain: the Queen will spare her brothers’ lives if Ryn remains silent for six years.

Ryn thinks she freed her brothers, but she never thought the Queen would turn her brothers into swans. And she never thought she’d have to undo the Queen’s spell alone, without speaking.

Filled with action, adventure, and a touch of romance, Ryn’s journey to save the kingdom will captivate middle-grade readers.

Advance Praise for The Flight of Swans: ”[F]illed with magic, romance, and peril. . . . An imaginative retelling with an unforgettable heroine.” —starred,  Kirkus Reviews
