    In the late fourteenth century, Lady Delia tries to befriend her father's new bride, even as she treats Delia and her seven brothers with nothing but disdain. All too soon, her father passes away, and her brothers are accused of treason, hauled away to prison, and threatened with a deadly fate. Desperate to save them, Delia visits an abbey, installs herself as close to the king as she can, and befriends his guards and knights. As she plots her brothers' escape, she must discover if the new knights in her life have honorable intentions, and whether she wants to see them after this ordeal is over. Court of Swans is a well-crafted escape thriller with plenty of longing glances to break up scenes of sword fighting. Delia is a compelling protagonist because she is able to see the good in people—rarely do you see an obviously wicked stepmother so often given the benefit of the doubt. A perfect pick for fans of period dramas who want a little action mixed into their romance. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
