Black Swan Rising by Lee Carroll

Blackswan This urban fantasy story by Lee Carroll is a great addition to shelves of paranormal literature. When New York jeweller Garet James stumbles into a previously unnoticed antiques shop during a sudden fog her life takes a different course altogether. She admires a box and is subsequently asked if she would take it home and open it up as it is sealed shut. A large sum of money is offered if she's able to perform this seemingly simple task. Garet and her father are in urgent need of funds and so that night Garet sets about opening up the box. Immediately her life begins to change and she embarks upon an adventure with vampires, fairies and all manner of supernatural characters. Along the way she discovers that she has powers of her own and also that the death of her mother, many years previously, is connected to the box. Her ultimate goal is to prevent the world being overtaken by the demons of Despair and Discord and to have a life with the man that she has fallen in love with.

Transworld Fans of supernatural fiction will find this book difficult to put down. The story captures the imagination from the first paragraphs with fabulous characters and quick paced action. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am eager to read the second one which is called The Watchtower.Thanks to Transworld who sent this book to me as part of their current book club review programme.

    According to Amazon, it’s 10th May for the paperback of The Watchtower. I’ve added it to my wishlist there although I might check and see if the library has it.
    I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.
