Swan Lake meets Robin Hood when the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant by day becomes the region's most notorious poacher by night, and falls in love with the gamekeeper.

Jorgen is the gamekeeper for the wealthy margrave, and he is in pursuit of the poacher who has been killing and stealing the margrave's game. When he meets the lovely and refined Odette at the festival and shares a connection during a dance, he has no idea that at night she is the one who has been poaching the margrave's game.

Odette is caught up in a ring of black market sellers of poached animals. She thinks the game is going to feed the poor, who are all but starving, both in the city and just outside its walls. However, most of the animals are being sold by the greedy leader of the ring?her stepfather. When Odette discovers what he is doing, she threatens to expose him, putting herself in great danger.

The gamekeeper finds her poaching one night and shoots her, wounding her. When he realizes who she is, he hides her to keep her from being executed by the margrave and also to protect her from her stepfather. Jorgen and Odette will band together to stop the black market poaching ring ... as they fall in love. But what will the margrave do when he discovers his gamekeeper is protecting a notorious poacher?

a fairytale for grown-ups
3 stars By Marija, Jan 01 2018
Melanie Dickerson really brings to life the medieval, fairytale world of the story. While I realise that the story draws on the Robin Hood fables, I felt that Odette's justification for her poaching just didn't quite seem to make sense - she is an intelligent woman  of some means and social standing, and could surely find other (legal) means to help the poor. Apart from this, I really enjoyed the novel and look forward to reading more in the series.

Beautiful and Gripping
5 stars By Jacqueline, Dec 01 2016
Melanie Dickerson writes in such a way that you can feel the heart and angst of her characters as they go through the events of each day. I loved this book as it wrestled with the very real issue of following God's command to help the poor when it goes against the law. I fell in love with Odette and Jorgen as they tried to live out their lives loving people as God does. A truly beautiful story.

This story is very interesting because the end is unpredictable and I always wanted to read more because I was so eager to find out what would happen next. This remarkable swan lake retelling is full of exciting twists, and has what the best fairy tales always have - a happy ending!
