Odette and Victor have loved one another their whole lives.
Victor and Odette are unaware of Benno's powers and manipulations to come between them and win Odette for himself. When Benno uses his powers to transform Odette, she finds herself in a fight for her freedom and for Victor.
The White Swan is a retelling of the classic Swan Lake fairytale.
A girl who turns into a swan at the first light of day. Only this story has two, Odette and Odile.
Odile's self pity of herself is something anyone with siblings that are more popular than they are can relate to, as is the oblivion Odette has of the entire situation.
The fact that Odile shares Odette's situation in this story opens her eyes to all the things her self loathing prevented her from seeing.
I liked how the story is told from multiple points of view while still remaining in the third person. The chapters are labeled by the character starring in that part. It was a refreshing change from the norm.
I never really understood Benno's actions, but I understood Odile's ultimate decision. I do hope Cindy will write a sequel, a brand new fairy tale in which the White Swan and the Black Swan will be together again.
