After his wife's untimely death, a powerful sorcerer dedicates his life to seeking revenge against all womankind. He turns his captives into beautiful swans--who briefly regain human form by the fleeting light of the moon. Only Odette, noblest of the enchanted flock, has the courage to confront her captor. But can she gain the allies she needs to free herself and the other swan-maidens from their magical slavery?A monumental tale of loyalty and betrayal, of magic good and evil, of love both carnal and pure, and of the duality of human nature, The Black Swan is a rich tapestry which is sure to become an all-time masterpiece of fantasy.

Baker & Taylor
Embittered by the untimely death of his wife, a powerful sorcerer wreaks vengeance on all womankind, capturing women and transforming them into swans who only regain their human forms briefly each night.

I love this book. I have read my copy over and over and over and it is nearly falling apart. I love the way Odile grows and changes throughout the story, how she questions and learns and becomes closer to the swan maidens, until the end when all is set right. I love the slight twist on the usual Swan Princess story. It's just a really great book. Give it a try.
