Book Review: Entwined

A YA fantasy
by Heather Dixon 
4 stars

Azalea and her younger sisters dance in the mysterious silver forest every night, escaping from the sadness of the palace and their father’s grief. What they don’t understand—although as time passes they begin to get an inkling of the danger they are in—is that the mysterious and dashing Keeper is tightening his snare with deadly purpose. Luckily, Azalea is brave and steadfast. Luckily, a handsome young army captain also has his eye on Azalea. . . . Lush, romantic, and compelling, this debut novel by Heather Dixon will thrill fans of Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Edith Pattou.

My Review:

A rendition of the fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, this story takes us SO much further. It's fresh, with a modernized voice.

The central conflict doesn't become apparent until almost the middle of the story, but the journey TO that conflict kept me flipping pages. Or, clicking the arrow on my kindle, rather.

With a focus on family, forgiveness, and love, this is one easy, thoroughly enjoyable read.
