It’s not easy learning how to be a swan, but Ori Jones has worked hard to embrace a role that still doesn’t come entirely naturally to him. Now, almost a year after his first full shift, he finally feels as if he is making a difference at the Anderson nest.

Ori’s happier than he’d ever been, until a few words from his master, Raynard, suddenly bring all of Ori’s old fears rushing back to the surface.

The nest’s elders want to have a party for Ori’s birthday, but Ori can’t see any reason to celebrate in it being a year since he reached his avian maturity. After all, what’s the use in learning to be a good swan when Raynard never wanted a swan in the first place?

Please Note: This story is best read in order as part of the Avian Shifters series. The previous book is Duck! and the next book is Magpie.

My View:

This is very short but gives you everything you want if you are a fan of Ori and Reynard.

A year has almost passed since Ori surprised the nest and became a Swan, a breed of bird that brings with it great responsibility, something that scares the life out of Ori and that he doesn’t cope with very well.

As the nest prepares a birthday party that is ostentatious and not what Ori wants Reynard takes control and arranges something more to his lovers tastes, once again proving how much he loves and truly understands his timid submissive.

Reynard gets it perfectly right and the reader gets all the feels as Ori turns 22 with the most important person in his life.
