"Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing 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 really enjoyed this book. There were many great elements in this book that drove you to read it faster and faster. The message behind the whole book is breathtaking. Once I began reading it, I was entwined to read the book, never to stop.

The story line of the book had me hooked. After losing a precious family member Azalea and her other sisters are confined to mourning. They are not allowed to do the one thing that reminds them of the lost loved one. The sisters find solace in a magical world hidden in a secret passageway. I can't begin to tell you what a gorgeous book this is. Simply magical and very entertaining, Entwined is a book you must read.

The characters of the book have some major growth that I enjoyed reading! It is a growth not in one character but in all of them. Ms. Dixon's writing flows you along with the story, as if you are in it. The magical realm Ms. Dixon created along with Keeper, is a place I would want to dance forever. This is a re-make of the original Twelve Dancing Princess. I have not read that book but after reading this one, I will definitely go pick it up.

The love behind the family, especially how it ended left me in tears. Such a pure love, between everyone gave hope for the family to be whole once again. I adored the King and the change that happen in him. His love for his children, and the way the girls handled everything with great maturity is fantastic. These girls also had some fire in them that made me laugh in some parts.

This book is absolutely beautiful and amazing. Simply wonderful for anyone who wants an out of this world, magical read.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

  3. I really enjoyed this one too Savy! I loved the whole family relationship and how it grew between the girls and their father, it was nice to have the romance be secondary to the family connection. I'd never read the 12 Dancing Princesses fairytale either before reading this one, but I'd like to go back and read it now:)
