Feels that's about to hit yo ass while your reading this book
Upon hearing that Ms. Attar was working on a new book named The Paper Swan, my mind was coming up with what would entail in the story for that title. Then the cover and blurb was revealed and I put this to the top of my TBR stack. What's refreshing is that the blurb doesn't give anything away to what the story is about. And guess what? I'm going to do the same thing. All I will say is that the writing is easy and flawless. The author doesn't give no twists to her words. What you read is what you get. The story line isn't what you would think you'd get. I was surprised with the direction it took. The characters are like any other. The death of innocence is hurtful. Vengeance is to be awarded but not without heartbreak. Love is to bloom where it died.
"We are a question that hasn't been answered yet, a hiding place that hasn't been found yet, a battle that hasn't been fought yet."
The Paper Swan is appropriately titled. Once you read more into the story, you find the magic that Ms. Attar intertwines with her words and be left utterly satisfied.
You don't always get the treasure by holding on. Sometimes the magic happens when you let go.
Leylah Attar writes stories about love - shaken, stirred and served with a twist. When she's not writing, she can be found pursuing her other passions: photography, food, family and travel. Sometimes she disappears into the black hole of the internet, but can usually be enticed out with chocolate.
