I heard a lot of good words about this series and the writer, so I thought I give it a try (+ the books were really cheap at the kindle store #sorrynotsorry). This first book was an absolute pleasure to read. I have to admit that some parts of the book were a little bit obvious; ugly orphan girl gets powers and changes in a beautiful powerful swan, orphan boy finally admits after years and years he loves orphan girl, orphan girl falls for evil kenievel handsome guy. But some parts were also really surprising and I really like the writing style. It's a nice quick read and I'm curious what the next book wil bring.
