Lucy Swing lives in sunny Florida with her husband and two children.

She is a YA Paranormal/ Romance writer, whose works include: Feathermore #1 (Feathermore Trilogy), Bloody Valentine, the novella, and Bloody Valentine is also offered in "Death by Chocolate," an anthology consisting of 6 fantastic YA short stories with a chocolaty twist.

She is an absolute book hoarder and must always have a book at arms distance. Music is her muse, and there is always a soundtrack that plays along her life.

Feathermore (Feathermore #1)
Title: Feathermore

Author: Lucy Swing

Genre: Paranormal Romance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When the one thing you live for is taken from you, do you let it go or do you fall?

Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?

Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.

But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?


Lucy Swing is a fantastic author; I reviewed a short story in an anthology for her so when she asked me to read her full length novel Feathermore I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to start it. Lucy’s writing is excellent her character description and plot are good and written extremely well. She gives you enough detail without overdoing it and it was one of those stories you couldn’t put down. Lucy Swing is now one of my favorite authors, her debut novel is exceptional and one of the best paranormal stories I have read in awhile.

So we are introduced to Jade, a senior in high school, she has a small group of friends and appears to be a pretty happy person. But Jade does carry around a secret and hasn’t told a soul not even Claire or Nate who are her best friends. She hears a voice in her head and it always feels like the voice is trying to warn her. Unsure of exactly what to do she dismisses the voice and tells no one fearing that her family and friends would think she is crazy. 

One day in class a new boy arrives his name is Avan and he is drop dead gorgeous and Jade cannot keep her eyes off him. Feeling a strong connection towards Avan and finding out he feels the connection too, she decides to ignore her friends warnings to take things slow for now. Life seems to be going well and Jade is happy until a tragedy strikes and nothing in her life will ever be the same. Secrets are revealed and Jade knows she will never have a normal life again.

Feathermore is a fantastic read and I enjoyed the uniqueness of this book. I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances and I for one plan to tell all my friends to read it. Lucy Swing has given us the beginning of a new series and I cannot wait for book two in the Feathermore series.

Thank you Lucy Swing for giving me your novel to read and review and I cannot wait to read book two.
