Confined to their dreary castle while mourning their mother's death, Princess Azalea and her 11 sisters join The Keeper, who is trapped in a magic passageway, in a nightly dance that soon becomes nightmarish.
I actually forgot what this book was about, I remembered getting it for a steal as it was featured as a 99 cent e-book and at the time I had been dying for it. Like many of my TBR books though it got lost in the ever growing mountain that quickly has taken space in my library corner.
I was actually spinning through my Kindle looking at covers and just trying to get a feel for a book that grabbed my attention and kept me hooked just from that. It is an odd sort of feeling when you can’t decide what to read; almost like that craving I have spoken of before.
I was going to read the few hours before it got dark and then clean since it was my day off and my fiancé had to work. I was hooked from the very first paragraph, and as the hours ticked away and daylight faded I lost myself in the world Heather Dixon.
Anyone who follows my blog knows I am a sucker for fairy tales and their re-makes. So I was delighted to come to the realization that it was an adaption of the twelve dancing princess’s fairy tale.
This story is told from the view point of the eldest as she takes care of her younger sisters after a promise was made on silver to their mother who the very same night died giving birth to the youngest of the sisters.
It was easy to relate with Azalea as I was the eldest of my siblings and while I didn’t have a magic promise that bound me I still took care of them and raised them.
One of the best things of this story is that each sister had their own personality, one that the author did well in keeping to and not letting them fade into the background. It actually felt like a family.
I enjoyed the love interest’s that came into play and found myself rooting for the happily ever after ending I am normally against.
Favorite Charachter: Bramble, she had some serious spunk that you can't help but enjoy.
