**Finalist -- 2012 Global Ebook Awards**
Rhyn, a widowed Wolleni, depressed over the death in childbirth of his beloved half-Tslyddi wife, is ordered by the king to marry his dead wife's sister. But the new wife becomes jealous of Rhyn's children -- two sets of twins, a girl and three boys -- and plots to turn them into swans. The spell goes awry, and the children are only partially transformed. Worse, they must spent 900 years in their new shapes, in ever more wild and isolated places -- and they have no guarantee that they will ever be normal again. At least they can still sing.
Based on the Irish tale, "The Fate of the Children of Lir," *SwanSong* is the story of how Neeve, Kennet, Corwin and Kyl cope with their transformed bodies in a land where magic is dying.
