Blurb:  It’s not easy learning how to be a swan, but Ori Jones has worked hard to embrace a role that still doesn’t come entirely naturally to him. Now, almost a year after his first full shift, he finally feels as if he is making a difference at the Anderson nest.

Ori’s happier than he’d ever been, until a few words from his master, Raynard, suddenly bring all of Ori’s old fears rushing back to the surface.

The nest’s elders want to have a party for Ori’s birthday, but Ori can’t see any reason to celebrate in it being a year since he reached his avian maturity. After all, what’s the use in learning to be a good swan when Raynard never wanted a swan in the first place?


Review: What a delightful little visit with Ori and Reynard! Everything I loved about these two is brought right back to life in this short glimpse into life in the nest as Ori adjusts to his new status. He is just as sweet and eager to please though he harbors many doubts about Reynard actually wanting a swan.

Raynard steps up to the plate making Oli’s birthday a special event and quashing any doubts he may have now or in the future. He’s ever protective and dominant over Ori whether in human or avian form and I loved seeing them in both.

This was a really short but super sweet little update on how these guys are making out since Duck! I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series to see where things go from here.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
