“Fantastic writing. Witness protection, terrorism, and one very brave hero named Aidan, what more could you ask for? This book kept me turning the pages. Strong, fast pacing that doesn’t lag and a great ending that left me wanting more. I hope to read more from this author.”
— Judge’s comments from 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.


Terror’s Identity is a fast-paced read for young adults.

Starting a new high school is tough enough, but sixteen-year old Aidan Knox is about to have his world turned upside down. In a strange new town under the witness protection program due to his father’s career investigating domestic terrorism, Aidan wants to make friends but isn’t sure whom to trust.  He’s also worried that he can’t keep his mother and sister safe.

Terror’s Identity will keep you on the edge of your seat, pulling for Aidan and his family.

“Once I picked this up I couldn’t put it down. Terror’s Identity is a thought-provoking, well-timed, and emotionally gripping coming of age story that leads to discoveries about oneself, friendship, love, and family. Swan has chosen a massive and urgent topic in her debut novel, dynamic and insightful.”

— Ann Eisenstein, author of Hiding Carly and Fallen Prey
