suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.
But there is a cost.
The Keeper likes to keep things.
Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.
I read this book in early June, so this review is very late, and I apologize to the people of Harper Collins, who sent it to me! I loved this book so much. I had a very grand pleasure of reading this novel, and for a debut novel, it's certainly incredible. It's loosely based on the twelve dancing princesses.
Azalea's story is definitely intriguing. From the early death of her mother, and the year of mourning, it's very interesting. It seems like a whole different world, which it is in a way. Especially through the passage that they meet the Keeper! The Keeper, he was definitely a unique character. At first appealing and caring, it quickly turns to the opposite.
I loved every single princess! They all had their own personality and it was great getting to know every single one. It was easy to keep track because the names were in alphabetical order from age. My favorite was definitely Bramble. She was hilarious and such a delightful character!
There was everything in this fairytale: drama, action, hurt, and of course, romance! This book was very good, and I highly recommend you pick it up your next trip to the bookstore.
I give it 5 keys.
Oh!-and the cover! It's beautiful!!
