I didn't quite know what to expect with this book. What I found was a very imaginative and well written story, an extended epilogue to the well known children's story about the six brothers who were turned into geese. It started out fairly straightforward, but had a lot of different pieces that came together to form well rounded characters and an interesting story.

This book was a happy accident while cleaning through a school library with limited reading variety. I found it good then, and later, good enough to purchase and reread, it starts much like any Brother's Grimm tale or fairy tale of the older variety would, with some drag, some stalling, and you hoping it gets to the point or something happens before you skip to another story, when it takes action and starts moving is when it's good as gold. The build up gets you to know the main character, his motivations, the wind up right before the swing really leaves you hoping he will accomplish these goals set in stone, and from there it's a ride worth the wait. It did have moments that nearly bucked me off and left me too flustered to continue, some lines have to be read twice, but the ride is definitely worth it.

It fits into the category that would appeal to teenagers and kids who feel like they don't fit in most, but alienated adults could just as easily see the m.c as a likable character from start to finish. Definitely recommend this for at least one good read before you put it on a shelf.

I'd praise the cover art, as it stands out from all my other books, but I feel that might look a bit silly. ( )

This was 100% good. It's a middle-grade retelling of the six swans tale (I keep calling it Seven Swans because of that Sufjan Stevens song lol) from the point of view of the youngest brother who is left with a bird wing because his sister didn't finish his shirt in time.

I don't have a lot to say about this book, because I just loved it. It was refreshing and full of feels and adventure and fairy tale vibes! I loved the dynamic between the brother and his sister and the tension caused by the curse she lived through and did her best to lift off her brothers. The main character, Ardwin is definitely a headstrong brat, but also someone who is bullied and shunned by many of those around him. He goes through some great growth throughout the story.

It's just an awesome read - I finished it in 2 days and it's one I definitely want to re-read someday. Certainly, it would be on a 'top whatever' list for fairy tale retellings from me. If you like MG, fairytale retellings and fantasy, definitely pick this up. ( )

“Tomorrow", said Peter when they reached the gate. "Same time. We'll meet here. No need for the yard."

"You'll... you'll take me?" exclaimed Ardwin."You'll take me as you student? Why? I was terrible!"

"Yes, you were. But you have perseverance, Prince Ardwin. You kept at it despite your lack of success. What's more, you made no complaint against the wind, and you damaged no arrows. When you failed, you made no moan. Bran broke a bow over his knee when he began, so frustrated did he become.”
Be brave, be bold, my dear, but do not be too bold. Do not go looking for trouble. It has a way of finding you on its own, soon enough.
-- Rose
Yes, Ardwin remembered. This is the way swans like to travel. A tailwind can make even the longest and riskiest flight possible.
It was a good sign.
He had lived cloaked so long, he did not know how to reveal his heart.
Young as I was that day Ardwin recalled, I could see the pain clearly on his face. Yet he did what justice demanded. What price did he pay? What price do people pay for their integrity? Ardwin immediately answered his own question. A lot, he thought. It is always hard won.
