Just when Azalea should feel that everything is before her—beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing—it’s taken away. All of it. And Azalea is trapped. The Keeper understands. He’s trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. 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.
Heather Dixon brings a new “twist and twirl” to this classic fairy tale. With dancing, magic, and twelve princesses, this book is sure to delight everyone. Let me tell you this, I have two younger sisters with completely different personalities and they both enjoyed it.
After each curtsy, the book’s plot and story line became more thrilling and suspenseful– which left me turning the pages as fast as I could.
All the characters were unique–with the twelve princesses’ love for dancing, the creepy and mysterious Keeper, the stubborn king, and the kind hearted clockmaker. My personal favorite character was Azalea. Her love for her younger sisters is very touching and since I have three sisters and two sisters-in-laws, I liked that about her. The other sisters were all right, but Azalea was by far my favorite. And like every good book there is always a “Prince Charming” which Lord Bradford lived up to his part.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea and be prepared to be swept up into a great book.

I also did like listening to the book. The reader, Mandy Williams, did an excellent job narrating the story.
This review is written in my own words and is my honest opinion.
