Review: Entwined by Heather Dixon

Amazon description:

"Come and mend your broken hearts here.
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."

I finished this book sometime after midnight one morning last week..  I loved it.  It is a lovely retelling of the fairytale The Twelve Dancing Princesses, with magic and romance and secrets, a good plot and delightfully flawed characters.  It was charming with some deliciously dark and creepy places.

So, I give it 5 out of five stars.

If you're looking for a light, but fun read, I'd definitely recommend Entwined.

I think that's all.  Live long and prosper.  


  1. Oh, Lily, I loved this book, too! Wasn't it just beautiful!?

  2. Yes! It makes me happy just thinking about it.

  3. Loved this book! It takes a classic fairy tale and weaves it into an engrossing read. I loved the characters that are developed and couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see what Heather Dixon comes up with next!
