The fifth installment in the Black Swan serial saga. By Victoria Danann

READING IN ORDER STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. That’s why we have a try-before-you-buy-program. The first book in the saga, My Familiar Stranger, is PermaFREE everywhere.

THE NEWSLETTER: Z Team, a.k.a Zed Company, is transferred to Jefferson Unit, which is being temporarily retired as an active hunter facility and converted to a research / training institution. Sol takes his first vacation – ever – leaving Glen in charge with Storm supervising. Rosie is proving to be an extraordinary little girl and Deliverance is in BIG trouble with her mother.

THE SURPRISES: Storm is really not himself. Former members of B Team must reunite to preserve his image and reputation. No one could have prepared for the surprises Rosie delivers, least of all Glen.

THE ADVENTURE: The Ralengclan send a second wave assassination team to Jefferson Unit at the worst possible time, when it’s been left defended by only Z Team, Glen, Elora, Sir Fennimore, and the trainees.


5 Star Review
Gathering Storm Book 5 in The Order Of The Black Swan Series by Victoria Danann
This book picks up roughly where No 4 ended. Elora, Ram & baby Helm, have moved back into Jefferson Unit. They hope that this will keep Elora safe, from another attack, from the Raglenclan.
Storm & Litha are at their Vineyard with their new baby daughter Elora “Rosie” Rose. Who, although only being 6 weeks old. Is already proving she is a very special little girl.
Jefferson Unit is going through changes. It is temporarily being converted from a hunter facility to a Training & Research Institution, so there is only a skeleton staff, and a group of young Trainees. Sol decides that it is the right time to take his very first vacation with his Bride to be Farnsworth, leaving Glen in charge.
Unfortunately this is when The Raglenclan, decide to attack.
From here on the story really becomes exciting. The way everyone works together to defend Jefferson Unit & more importantly PROTECT Elora, is wonderful. I had a lump in my throat a couple of times, because of how some of the young Trainees stepped up and proved how they were destined to be a Black Knight. We also meet up with the rest of our much loved characters, although Storm is not quite himself!! We also have the dubious pleasure? of the Z Team, who have been called back on their last chance to prove themselves worthy of being called Black Knights.
There were some really funny moments, where I laughed out loud, and some very sad moments, where I was shocked & very sad.
This is definitely the best book of the series so far. It was a complete rollercoaster ride. Victoria Danann is the one of the best story tellers I have ever come across. She draws you in to the story, so that you instantly connect with the Characters.
I absolutely loved it. Fabulous.
