4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguingly different blend of regency and science fiction Dec 18 2015
By Sheila Deeth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Author Annamaria Bazzi has a wonderful way with voice and description. Her protagonist’s unexpected switch from the present day to a regency world includes puzzlement at a working lady’s “shower cap,” authentic dismay at long skirts and complicated clothing, and bemusement at the rules of polite society. Of course, Kendika is not the only present-day teenager to find herself in this world. But Kendika’s situation, suddenly marraigable and rich, is better blessed than her new friend’s.

The blend of modern sensibilities and an older world’s rules might remind readers of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander perhaps. But this is a quieter tale, befitting the Regency World of its title, and more suited, perhaps, to teenagers. Love blooms slowly and carefully. Treachery is quietly cruel. And hints of a very different kind of magic from Outlander’s feed onto the page.

Readers will be quickly drawn in as Kendika and Jillian experience their world through different fates and hopes. Women become a force for change, though the hero’s past efforts might seem too easily dismissed. As magic is revealed as the force for power, I find myself wishing these teenage girls would ponder science before jumping to conclusions. But perhaps that reveals the different world I grew up in!

An intriguing mystery, an absorbing romance, a novel of teens and the regency, and a tale that inspires readers to think—about people, possessions, rights, responsibilities, and more—White Swans is far more than just another Regency tale or sci-fi fantasy, and it’s highly recommended.

Kendika’s world is rocked upon the death of her parents leaving her bereft at the tender age of 16. In transit to her new guardian she falls asleep and awakens in a new world.

This world is set mostly, with a few exceptions, in the Regency area which is a world that is not set on Earth. The eyes in the sky are quite literally eyes that watch from the sky. Disobedience by breaking the unwritten laws is first warned against and if you persist in disobeying then punishment is both swift and harsh.

I loved watching the story unfold. Ms. Bazzi set a slow and steady pace with her character and world building. Each new chapter unveiled something new either about the characters, the world, or even the aliens in the sky. This is a fantasy story and as such you will need to set aside some of the disbelief you may have with the storyline. The story has all the elements of a classic tale - a hero, a heroine, villains, a selfish person turning good, and the general background characters that make the world turn. It’s a weird story as most fantasy’s are, however, I very much enjoyed it and am eagerly anticipating a sequel.
4.0 out of 5 stars A new fantasy series with a heartwarming protagonist Feb. 25 2015

With White Swans: The Regency World, Annamaria Bazzi has created an intriguing story of a 16-year-old girl who has to deal with life in a quite different environment: a past era, with unusual additions. The author tells the story caringly - giving the reader room to get acquainted with Kendíka, the other protagonists and the surroundings. As the story proceeds you learn more about the humans, the swans and the circumstances. It is a surprising story, I warmed to some characters pretty fast. What can I tell you - I'm hooked and need to read the following instalments as well. This is a book for you if you like young adult and fantasy stories, people with all their virtues and flaws.

A book to read again. Recommended!
