This is a short story … so short that it moves fast. No slow burn, no filler. This couple gets right to the point.

Nova Bradford and Mikhail Luther have a long history. They’ve known each other since they were students at Blythe T. Young Magnet High School. Mikhail was the handsome high school jock with the pretty homecoming queen on his arm and Nova, well Nova was the ugly duckling no one cared about.After years of working on her self-confidence thanks to a friend and therapy, she finally decides albeit reluctantly, to embark on a school reunion cruise to tropical paradise where she will come face to face with her former classmates that taunted her every day.What she doesn’t expect to find is Mikhail, alone and not the same young man from school. What follows seems unlikely, but it’s also the thing they both need …

Life after high school…boy oh boy. Returning to your class reunion can be an epic fail or it can really teach you somethings about yourself and others. Nova has grown so much over the years that some people don’t even recognize her. This turns out to be a vacation she will never forget.

Mikhail is so used to doing what is asked of him that he doesn’t really follow his passion or work on his craft. Reconnecting with Nova will have him rethinking what’s really important in life.

The Swan is a short story and Aja hits the ground running the minute the first words hit the page. There will be no build up and development that you are used to in an Aja book. The Swan is a page turner from beginning to end.

While reading this you will start to ask yourself some questions about your own life journey? Are you ready to become The Swan?
