Publication Date: February 22, 2016
Genre: YA Fantasy
Dating isn’t easy when you’re in the middle of a blood feud.
Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults.
After hundreds of years, they still cling to the blood feud with the Renard family. No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along.
Vilas can only transform into their swan shape after they have fallen in love for the first time, but between balancing schoolwork, family obligations, and the escalating blood feud, Ana’s got no time for love. The only thing keeping her sane is her best friend, Pierce Kent.
But when Pierce kisses Ana, everything changes.
Is what Pierce feels for her real, or a byproduct of her magic? Can she risk everything for her best friend? And when the family feud spirals out of control, Ana must stop the fight before it takes away everything she loves.
This Entangled Teen Crave book contains language, violence, and lots of kissing. Warning: it might induce strong feelings of undeniable attraction for your best friend.
Are you interested in writing fantasy?
My first rule: magic should never be used to make your plot or life for your characters easier. It should always make things harder… at least for a little while.
And that’s it for my rules.
Because that’s the beauty of fantasy - the rules are what you make them! Do you want trees that grow cats or thoughts that turn into ferrets or the power to control the weather? Done! Do you want to read thoughts or visit ancient lands? Done and done!
But don’t expect your story to end there.
Fantasy fiction almost always looks like one thing, while it’s secretly busy being something else entirely. Some truths are shy, you catch them out of the corner of your eye, like fairies in the old stories. You can’t look right at them. They wear costumes for a reason: it’s not just camouflage, it’s another kind of language.
And as Llyod Alexander said: “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long as they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream. Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with her husband and their dogs. She likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.
