The Black Swan Series is full of Inter-dimensional travel, Secret Government Agencies, Paranormal Studies, and Black-Ops Style Vampire Hunters... The perfect blend of Action, Adventure, and Romance.

Victoria Danann has set up a complex character system with ease... She leaves us with a core group of main characters we never lose touch with, and new faces which earn our adoration with each turn of the page...

In Addition, The Black Swan Saga Features:
Strong intelligent female characters
This is my absolute favorite series, it sticks with you, keeps you guessing, and is just absolutely fantastic! I've been hooked since book 1 (My Familiar Stranger) and they just keep getting better!!
My Familiar Stranger
This book was so good I could not put it down. I love all the dimensions it takes you to! If you are into paranormal romance you definitely need to get this book & the sequel. I am a forever fan now!!! So now I have read this book 2 times. It is even better the second time around. I fell for Storm the 1st time. The second Time I found Rammel Hawking totally charming!!!Lets not forget about Istvan Baka what a sexy Vampire!!! Please if you have not read this Yet get your f...more

To say that this is a good series does not even begin to do it justice. As I have said before, before reading this series by Victoria Danann, I have never written a book review before, because out of the hundreds of books that I have read, I never felt strongly enough about a story or writer to get involved. This series gives you some of everything, mystery, suspense, murder, love, vampires, werewolves, elves, fae and so much more. The characters are so life like that the reader feels like they...more

This is my favorite series by far. I love to read anything paranormal but paranormal romance is really my choice. Several years ago there was a series that asked if you were for the vampire side or the werewolves side. Now this is not a series of just vampires or werewolves, Victoria Danann covers all of the paranormal characters and does so expertly. All of her characters are well developed and interesting which makes this series more fun to read. From the first book, My Familiar Stranger (perm...more

This is my favorite Series! I am in love with EVERYTHING The Order of the Black Swan Series has to offer! I have been hooked since page 1 of book one, MY FAMILIAR STRANGER (which is also permaFREE!)! Each story will make you fall in love with each character more & more! I will never get tired of reading and sharing this amazing series. <3
Don't believe me?! Read the first book MFS and tell me you can just stop at one story.. Because I sure couldn't! ;)
If you are looking for a well written series of books that are intriguing, compelling and real page turners then look no further than Victoria Danann's Order of the Black Swan series. You will fall in love with the characters and their personal stories as you read each book in this series.....
I love these books!!! It's a little of everything... fantasy, adventure, romance. They always leave me wanting more!!!
Absolutely adore this series and highly recommend it!!

A Tale of Two Kingdoms: Some Slightly Star-Crossed Lovers

I have Victoria back on Sunday for a guest post and the contest will continue through then.

After discovering Victoria’s series via a book tour last spring, I have become quite ravenous for the Order of the Black Swan. The series has everything including action, love, paranormal species...more

When it comes to Paranormal these books have everything! Vampire, Vampire hunters, Elves, Fae, Werewolves, Demons, Angels, Berserkers, Witches, parallel universes, modern day Knights, star-crossed lovers, centuries old feuds… Also, through all of these books (which must be read in order) not only do we meet new characters but we get to follow the the lives of those we have come to love in each book!

My Familiar Stranger: We meet Elora Laiken just after her entire family has been mur...more

This series has grabbed me and swept me away since page one of MY FAMILIAR STRANGER and I am happy to say the story goes on and I love it even more. Some series keep the same story going and never gives you the end of the plot, but with this collection the story/adventure ends and you get the next part in their lives. You WANT MORE of the story and to see what the characters do next, not necessarily need the next book to see if so and so made it out of the pit or if the star crossed lovers ever...more

I very rarely ever read a book more than once. I just re-read this series as a whole and have completed the newest book included in this collection : A Tale Of Two Kingdoms. Just when I thought Victoria Dannan could not create an even deeper story line that made you stop and go wow, she did. The beginning of this book was phenomenal and caught me off guard. She not only created a multitude of new characters, but dropped some hints that made me stop and have to re read the paragraph again regardi...more

This is a sensational series. They should be read in order and now you can get all six! You will be so glad you did. Each book is wonderful and you will be eager to get to the next one. They are the best kind of addiction. They will make you laugh, cry, and sit at the edge of your seats. The tales are about honour, love, friendship, and loyalty. I care about the characters and what happens to them. The series is filled with adventure and action. I think it will appeal to both men and women. Do y...more

This is a really great series! I have thoroughly enjoyed all six of these books. Each book has a slightly different feel based on the direction the story is taking, but they weave together like a fine tapestry. Victoria Danann is a master story-teller who has created an endearing group of friends, coworkers, and lovers who also happen to be paranormals. Although many of the characters are linked professionally, a few others are only linked by their hearts and......uh...well never mind. This is t...more

I wish I could write the review these books and the author, Victoria Danann deserve. I have read this series and it is the best series ever. It is not your typical paranormal type series. Each book introduces new people while keeping you updated on the old characters. You have a witch/demon who has a sex demon for a father. A vampire that is changed back to human to be changed back to vampire, well you get my picture. These books allow you to become a part of another world and escape your stress...more

I am a paranormal junkie. I read and write. I could only hope one day to write such a fantastic adult paranormal series. Her writing flows. Her characters are well rounded and have depth. Her storyline is creative and fun loving. Throughout this series we get to revisit our favorite characters...which I love. I can't recommend this series enough. One-clicking is a no brainier. Just make sure you get your housework done, because you will NOT be able to put this series down. Yep, it's that great!!...more
Buy one for you and one for a friend!

This series is just too good not to share! There is something for everyone in these books. Don't think for a minute that they are just PNR there is mystery, action, adventure... yes there is romance but not any romance EPIC romance (oh and some steamy stuff too). There are knights and vampires and demons and fae and witches... all packed into these volumes that I bet you wont be able to read just once! And when you do reread you will pick up on things you mig...more

Absolutely Amazing!!! What more can I say? This is by far one of the best series that I have EVER read!!! It definitely has you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what will happen next and highly anticipating the next book! Victoria is one AMAZING writer and she keeps you coming back for more!

Seriously the books keep getting better and better!!!!!! I LOVE this series!!! Way to good to pass this awesome collection up!!
love this series to the moon and back
This has to be the most exciting Paranormal series I have ever read. It has everything you could ask for & keeps giving more.

The 6 books in this collection draw you into the lives & loves of the Knights of The Order Of the Black Swan. They keep humans safe from the Paranormal Creatures, that threaten them. They are a funny & loving group of men & their women folk are amazing. You also get to meet A sexy Vampire & an even sexier Demon. These books have them all, Vampire, Demon...more

I have had a heck of a week! My story goes from bad to worse this week and I survived it thanks to my favorite author Victoria Danann! I read her books while waiting to hear my answers at work and in my personal life, even though the storm is not over her books helped me stay calm.

I have read all of the Black Swan books and just love how each book is individual from the others! Yes it's a series and it HAS to be read in order, however; I just love that Ms. Danann's characters are not the usual s...more

An amazing series all the way through, from the beginning of book one to the end of book six this author will keep you enthralled. The Black Swan Saga has it all vampires, fairies, werewolves, elves, demons, and to keep it interesting she throws in a bit of inter-dimensional travel and of course we can't forget the romance. The bad boys from "B" Team will worm their way into your heart and keep you guessing as to what their next move might be. Grab a copy and join the rest of us who are already...more
Like alot of other Black Swan fans I stumbled onto My Familiar Stranger and was hooked within the first few pages. Ms. Danann paints pictures with her words and you are drawn into the dimensions she has created. Be sure to read the books in order so that you get the full tapestry of the story. With the action and adventure these are more than just 'romance' books; there is something in them even for the most manly of men! Waiting with great anticipation for the next installment.

This is one of my favorite series. I loved the entire series and cant wait to read each book in the series that comes out. The first book My Familiar Stranger is what started it all for me. Once I read that book I had to have all the others. If you get this set you will not be disappointed, I love all the characters and the world that Victoria has built with this series. I cant wait to see what happens next :)
If you have not had the great opportunity to read this great set of books you are missing out this set is amassing. You get drawn in and will fall in love with each one of the people in the book! Please read them you know what I'm talking about, this I s a start and lose track of 1/2the day set of books.
An amazing adventure. Victoria Danann has written a magnificent story about characters that I have come to love. Book 1 My Familiar Stranger will "drag you in" and before you know it you are anxiously awaiting book 7.

The Collected Tales 5 19 Aug 13, 2014 07:39PM  
My early work (eight-years-old) would be called fan fiction today. I began by writing my version of Bobbsey Twins novels on legal pads that my dad brought home from the office. As an only child - in the days before children became little electronic receivers - there was often not much to do other than seek amusement in my own head.

Childhood fantasies involved being the only girl (for some odd rea...more
