swanking Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of The Swan King by Nina Clare, produced for Tantor Audio. This is an exciting and beautiful fairy tale-like story, enjoyable for teens and adults alike.

Elsa, the sheltered daughter of a baron, has been forced to flee her home. When she’s given refuge at the royal castle it would seem that help is at hand, but the young king is not an easy man to speak to. In fact, Elsa’s not sure what kind of man he is.

Caught up into strange and magical happenings, political intrigues, and romantic conflicts, the glamorous world of the king disintegrates about her, and enemies close in. Elsa wonders who to trust, who to love, and if she will ever make it home again.
