Customer Reviews

An unforgettable story with epic themes!

When I read a great book, I often find it difficult to put into words how magnificent it is. I want to run pillar to post grabbing everyone shaking them while yelling, "Oh my goodness, you have to read this book! You have no idea what you're missing out on!"Of course that tends to scare people more often than not, but I'll try my level best to do this book justice.

There are some books that just read better in the silence of the night. I didn't start reading this book until 1 AM. I figured I'd read a chapter and then go to sleep. I didn't stop until I'd finished it at 3 AM. Even then sleep wouldn't come. My mind was wide awake even if my body was tired. I was trying to process how amazing the book I'd just finished was. It was truly a struggle. I must say the blurb is totally deceptive, but in a good way. You think you have an idea about what the story will be about, but then you're jolted by the very first page. It captured my attention and didn't let it go until I was finished. This story is dark, poetic, a deep romance, and even philosophical. It has some of the most profound lines I've had the pleasure to read.

Leylah Attar took me on this incredible journey with Damian and Skye. I experienced so many emotions, among them pain, fear, heartbreak, hope, and love. There were innumerable tears. I couldn't help myself. It was impossible to foreshadow so many events in this book. Damian might have been explosive in his anger, but there were revelations in this book that rocked him as much as they did Skye and me. I couldn't believe the turns this book took. They were gut wrenching; some were easier to understand than others. The themes in this story are universal and unforgettable. The one that stood out to me the most was the power of love and revenge.

The Paper Swan is an epic story of loss, love, revenge, redemption, and forgiveness. From the first page to the last, it's just unbelievably amazing. It's best to go into this book as blind as possible so you have the best reading experience. The hangover this book leaves will last for days. It's impossible for it not to. Damian and Skye had an undeniable chemistry and a connection that is soul deep. When the connection the characters have with one another is so deep it shows in their mannerisms, speech, and movements. Words are not always needed to convey thoughts, emotions, and feelings.

This is my first Leylah Attar novel. She's published two other books before this. She shows such maturity and promise. If she writes at this level now, I can't wait to see the heights she achieves. This book will leave a lasting impression on you as it did me. Pick it up today and find out why!

Match made in heaven

This was a very good book. The storyline was different which is refreshing with so many romance novels out there . The characters were like able and held your attention. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was it got a little bit tedious before getting to the actual romance. But I definitely recommend it.

Great book. Must read!

I loved this book, it has such nice story.. Definitely recommend this books one of favorite books of this year.
