Victoria Danann – Knights of Black Swan Series Reading Order

in Reading Order Guide:

Big love for this series, and MichelleS just brought them back up in a recent discussion!!!

Brenda: Just finished reading Victoria Danann’s first two books in the “Order of the Black Swan” series, really good books!! My Familiar Stranger and The Witch’s Dream. Loved them

Michelle: Oh yeah My Familiar Stranger is great, the whole series is!

MichelleS: Girl gets thrown to a parallel universe, the guys there are a team of vampire hunters. She gets caught up in their world. One of my favorites, especially after Golden Dynasty.

MichelleS: I have been badgering away and Fabi took the bait. I love that book. I love Ram and Elora (and I loved Storm’s story and the latest book). I’m just a nut for this series. So glad I’m not the only one.

MichelleS: OMG… seriously… I am losing it. That’s the hottest elf ever in the history of elves. Everyone will attest to the fact that I swoon over this guy endlessly. On my short list of book-boyfriends!!!

MichelleS: I thought of a good fantasy series – have you read Knights of the Black Swan series? It takes place in an alternate universe (I love those) and the characters are well developed and so likable. Cool world. Plot twists. Loved it. (And Rammel Hawking is just…. I have no words…. best.damn.elf.ever.)

MichelleS: Okay – for more of the “she was thrown into a barbarian society” or “a trip to another universe” kind of GD feel? I’d say Knights of the Black Swan series. And the bonus there? You get Rammel Hawking – only the hottest freaking elf ever written (fanning self).

About book #1:

She fell into an alternate dimension, but her fall was cushioned by the Knights of Black Swan.

In a matter of minutes Elora Laiken lost everything familiar. She escaped death by being forced into an experiment that left her in another world where modern day knights, elves, vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and fae became her allies, friends and family. She discovered a place where romance, fantasy and adventure intersect fairy tales and she learned that love can find you in the strangest places, when you’re least expecting it, even when you’re far, far from home.

OMG I love this series. I love the drama, the love stories, the humor. I reread this series so much I could probably quote it for you. Oh and there are a few more books in the series than listed, not to mention a spin off series which is just as good

Terri Morris July 25, 2016 at 9:40 AM

Victoria Danann is my newest author crush in a HUGE way! I discovered her through a Facebook ad, which I have never done before, and what a wonderful discovery she is. My Familiar Stranger hooked me and now I’m constantly waiting for the next book from her. If you haven’t read her yet, I can’t recommend Danann more without seeming like a total fangirl. Her characters are rich, complex, and memorable. The story line is fresh and unique. Her talent is truly immense. Oh, and there’s a couple more books after Solomon’s Sieve, Vampire Hunter #8 (Rammel’s POV!!!!), and Journey Man #9.

One of the best series EVER. “My Familiar Stranger” starts with a bang and just keeps going. The whole “Knights of the Black Swan” series is the bomb.

Melvena Asa July 25, 2016 at 9:44 AM

The Knights of Black Swan by Victoria Danann is a great series the first book Familiar Stranger is free and once you read it you will be hooked. This is a series you definitely want to read. Then you will want to read everything this lady writes she can weave a story that will make you feel like you are right there in the middle of it. This reading order is a little out of date so go over and visit Victorias website to see what your missing.

I am a HUGE Knights of the Black Swan fan….The cover of “My Familiar Stranger” caught my attention and I had to find out what was between its pages….”Great Paddy”! Only the sexiest funniest vampire hunter with pointy ears EVER! Victoria Danann gives her readers a journey into a world with vampire, witches, elves, werewolves and demons…
This series is definitely worth reading…there are more new books in the reading order, too…

Jessie Hines July 25, 2016 at 10:54 AM

This series was my first paranormal read and it what had gotten me hooked on paranormal romance. My familiar stranger is by far my favorite book because it started it all, although through the releases I find myself loving the series more and more with each book

Krista July 25, 2016 at 11:10 AM

Love love love this series. Hate it when the books over.

MichelleS July 25, 2016 at 11:29 AM

I hadn’t realized I pimp this series out so much. LOL. I adore this series and all the characters. And Ram really is the hottest thing EVER. He melts your panties right off every time he opens his Irish-brogue-mouth. GAH! And Victoria Danann just POSTED UP THERE. Holy Crap. That’s so cool.

Unique world. Best characters ever. A pack of hot men and super strong women. I’d recommend this to anyone. Seriously.

Ellen July 25, 2016 at 11:29 AM

This is one my favourite series. I have loved it from the start. The characters are so complex and well drawn, I feel as if I know them. I do look forward to each book. Victoria Danann is a wonderful story teller. They should be read in order. Once you start, you will fall in love with them as well.

Victoria Danann July 25, 2016 at 11:47 AM

MichelleS –

Have you read Vampire Hunter? It’s told from Ram’s point of view. Email my assistant, Sarah, She’ll send you a signed copy. Really appreciate that you tell people about the series.


Peggy Rispo Boess July 25, 2016 at 12:01 PM

Stumbled upon My Familiar Stranger years ago as a free book and I’ve been in love with The Knights of Black Swan immediately. Victoria is such a gifted writer that I don’t just read her books I enter their world and become a part of it. Anyone who hasn’t read Black Swan needs too I guarantee you’ll love the books and it’s characters. (Especially a certain hot elf)

MichelleS July 25, 2016 at 12:26 PM

That’s me, I just fell over dead. Victoria Dannan just wrote a post TO ME and wants to send me a signed copy of Ram’s book. This is just bloomin’ perfect. Can I get a side of Ram with that? LOL.

Best. Day. Ever.

No, I haven’t read it. How’d I miss that? And, yes, I emailed your assistant in two seconds flat.

Thank you Thank you Thank you

Blaise July 25, 2016 at 12:49 PM

Love this series! It always leaves me wanting more, more, more!

Carol July 25, 2016 at 12:59 PM

Victoria has become one of my TBR authors and I will read anything that she writes! Her stories and worlds are unique and the storylines keep you guessing, you are drawn into the story so quickly that you end up losing sleep!

Catherine Elliott July 25, 2016 at 1:09 PM

Love Love Love this Series. I have been a fan since the 1st book My Familiar Stranger came out. Reading this series has opened up a whole new world for me. MFS it the Epic beginning to the Knights of Black Swan Series. I Do love Rammel he is my favorite Elf! But Sir Storm makes my heart go Pit a Pat! Elora & Litha are the Baddest Heroines ever!!! Victoria can spin a tale & keep you entertained. I have read MFS 6 times. Most of the rest of the series 4 or 5 times. If you have not read it yet do yourself a favor & pick up a copy and start reading today. You will really enjoy it!!!

Bobbi Kinion July 25, 2016 at 3:13 PM

My Familiar Stranger sucked me into the world of Black Swan and hasn’t let go since. Victoria Danann by far is my number one favorite author. I own all of her books both on my Kindle and on my bookshelf. I love how I can reread this series and still after all this time find things I missed throughout the other times I’ve read them. Seriously can’t get enough. Love, Love, Love all of her series.

Anne Rindfliesch July 25, 2016 at 3:17 PM

I love this series. Storm is my favorite knight – yummy. You get drawn into the lives of the characters and car bout what happens to them, their lovers,and friends.

Becky Burciaga July 25, 2016 at 3:26 PM

KBS is my absolutely favorite series…MFS started my love for all things Victoria Danann!

Robyn B July 25, 2016 at 3:29 PM

This is a fabulous series! Fall in love with the Knights of Black Swan! Be sure to read in order so you see the whole fabric of the story unfold.

Christine July 25, 2016 at 4:01 PM

This is one of the best series of books, that I have ever read. I can honestly say, that with KBS, every new book is just as good as the previous one. I don’t ever feel like the books are a “forced” writing. They flow beautifully and always keep me wanting more!

Rebecca Stigers July 25, 2016 at 4:30 PM

Victoria Danann is the BEST! Knights of Black Swan series is one I reread all the time! I always feel better after reading one of the books. Of course MFS is my favorite because it started it all. I’ve always said Victoria Danann could write a menu and people would love it! Best series ever!

Heather S July 26, 2016 at 8:47 AM

Love the Knights of the Black Swan. I got the first book free way back when and was hooked!! Totally fell in love with the characters.

Pamela Altman Talley July 26, 2016 at 12:55 PM

What everyone has said…lol OMG this is the #1 series in my library. You will laugh, you will cry and you will never lack a Book Boyfriend. I am a member of Team Rammel myself.
Victoria Danann is a Master Storyteller. Her stories in the Knights of the Black Swan series and all of the relates series will never disappoint. Thank you Victoria!

Maryse July 26, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Yay MichelleS!!!!!!! :D *hug* so cool!!

Fawnzy July 26, 2016 at 8:15 PM

I just adore Victoria’s Black Swan Knights! There is so much great reading ahead of you if you haven’t yet entered this dimension. Victoria already has a few new stories on the way too. I can’t wait!

DebDAG July 26, 2016 at 11:25 PM

One of the best paranormal series I have read. The first book drew me in to a wonderful world and I have been reading every book since.

Brandy July 27, 2016 at 7:29 AM

I’m a big fan of this series!! It all started with MFS and I have read all of her books a few times lol. This books will get you at the first chapter and you will not want to put it down!! The nice thing is you can keep reading and not have to wait for the next one to come out.

Lisa Lopez July 27, 2016 at 4:07 PM

Love this series. Was the first one I started buying when I got my kindle. Even the spin offs are great. Carnal and Luilf….BBF’s forever!

Catherine Elliott July 27, 2016 at 7:00 PM

I am a HUGE fan of Victoria Danann. I picked up My Familiar Stranger about a year ago and haven’t looked back. The Knights of the Black Swan is an amazing series with all the emotional ups and downs you could think of and is definitely worth your time reading.

PS There are two more of this series out now along with other series by Danann that are just as amazing and worth reading too.
