~Book Review~ “Simon Says” (Order of the Black Swan, D.I.T. Book 1) by Victoria Danann


My Review:

I was thrilled to learn that Victoria Dannan was bringing some of my all time favorite characters back to life in her new Black Swan spin-off series.

Simon Says focuses on Director Simon Tvelgar. He is always in control and able to fix pretty much all issues that are brought to him. He doesn’t joke much or appear to have much of a personal life outside of his commitment to Black Swan. When he reaches out to Rosie Storm for assistance with a personal issue, readers catch a glimpse of just why Simon is the way he is.

Twenty years ago, Simon both met and lost the love of his life within a matter of days while on a camping trip to the Orkney Islands. He never expected for her to disappear into the Standing Stones they were both fascinated with, never to return.

When Simon asks Rosie to help him find his lost love, an adventure that crosses dimensions unfolds. Will Rosie be successful in her quest traveling through parallel worlds, or will Simon’s mate, Sorcha, be lost to him forever . . .

Victoria Dannan knocked it out of the park with this novella. While it is a spin-off series, it is clear that she intends to interweave reader’s favorite characters into the new stories as well as take us on a different type of adventure than the vampire hunting that occurred in the original series.

Simon Says was thrilling, exciting and unexpected . . . and I loved it! The characters show amazing depth. The rapport between them is conversational and downright funny at times. And there is enough heat to light up a romantic’s heart! 5 stars while I count down the days to a quick follow-up release of Torn Finngarick’s story!

Director Simon Tvelgar is haunted by love that was lost but never fades with time.

He thought she was gone forever, but what if…?

New York Times bestselling author, Victoria Danann, introduces a new Black Swan series with this enchanting novella that will grab you by the heartstrings.

“Heart-warming, witty, quirky, a little racy and completely engaging!– Amazon Reader


Rosie Storm is about to get the chance to head up a new Black Swan unit, D.I.T. The Department of Interdimensional Trespass.

Twenty years ago Sir Simon was a vampire hunter. He took three month’s bereavement leave to go wild camping in the far north of Scotland following the death of his team leader. He expected solitude and fresh air to clear his mind and heart. He did not expect to fall in love. While wild camping on the stark landscape of the Orkney Islands, she disappeared into the standing stones. She faded into nothingness, a look of panic frozen on her face. As she reached out and silently called his name, he lunged to grab her an instant too late.

Her memory has haunted him every hour since.

Simon channeled his sorrow and loneliness into work until he eventually rose to the most powerful position ever held by an ex Black Swan knight. With tireless dedication, he built a congregation of talented misfits, watching and waiting for the one who could find Sorcha.
