Author Peter Miles believes that fairytales are not for young readers only and that adults can enjoy a happy-ever-after story too, every now and then. His latest publication, “Swan Prince” (published by Xlibris AU), is his fairy story offer to those who, like him, wants to traverse and revel in the rich recesses of their imagination.

This book follows an idealistic prince who sets out to woo a recently widowed Queen. On his way, he is beset by thieves, is threatened by diabolical wizardry, finds a fragment of a lethal ‘mirror of doom’ and discovers that his intended bride is not what she seemed to be. He meets and rescues his true and abiding love – but at a cost? Is there a happy ending for this brave royal and his fair beloved?

Miles’ richly-drawn characters and the diverse adventures they undergo bring this classic good versus evil tale to new heights. Sprinkled with just the right amount of magic and romance, the “Swan Prince” will not disappoint those looking for an escapist read that excites and mesmerizes at every page’s turn.
