Darci's Review

A Feather So Black is a beautiful exploration of Celtic folklore. Lyra Selene introduces us to the island nation of Fódla, where a history of treachery and war with the realm of Tír na nÓg, home to the fair folk, is rampant. Fia is a changeling princess, swapped with the High Queen Eithne’s heir, Eala, as a young girl. As Fia grows, she is forged into a weapon through hatred and torture, while her undying love for her foster mother proves to be a useful device in Eithne’s plot to steal her biological daughter back, along with the fae heir-apparent's magic. Battling internal demons and the dark seductive nature of Tír na nÓg, Fia will discover herself through the changing nature of her relationships and loyalties. 

Selene has created a charming tale of personal growth and the consequences of conditional love. With the entwining of Celtic folklore, and a twisted version of the classic Swan Lake fable, a story of balance in all things has flourished. Selene’s poetic prose ensnares you, lyrically portraying the beauty and darkness of balance held within the fae realm. A truly poetic and romantic fantasy that will take the world by storm. If you are a fan of Holly Black or the works of Olivie Blake, you will thoroughly enjoy this. 

Publisher's Review

The Cruel Prince meets For the Wolf in a sizzling fantasy romance set in a world of perilous magic and moonlit forests, spinning a seductive tale of a changeling princess, her cursed sister, and the dangerous fae lord she must defeat to save her family.

In a kingdom where magic has been lost, Fia is a rare changeling, left behind by the wicked Fair Folk when they stole the High Queen's daughter Eala and locked the gates to the Otherworld.When a hidden gate to the Otherworld is discovered, Fia is tasked by the High Queen to retrieve Eala and break her curse. But she doesn't go alone: with her is prince Rogan, Eala's betrothed and Fia's childhood best friend.

As the two journey into a world where magic winds through the roots of the trees and beauty can be a deadly illusion, Fia's mission is complicated by her feelings for the prince. . . and her unexpected attraction to the dark-hearted fae lord holding Eala captive. Irian might be more monster than man, but he seems to understand Fia in a way no one ever has.
