Magic Meets Mystery in This Gothic Retelling of a Classic Fairy Tale! Get tangled up in a gracefully told tale about princesses in peril! The eldest of 12 daughters, Azalea is the heir to her father's throne. But just when a life of beautiful gowns and dashing suitors begins to open before her eyes, it is taken away. Her mother dies, and her father insists that the whole castle go into mourning. That's why each night Azalea and her sisters step through an enchanted passageway in the castle to dance in the silver forest. A mysterious figure called the Keeper makes this possible, but his help carries a price. Because the Keeper likes to keep things — and people — and before long Azalea and her sisters are hopelessly entangled in his enchanted web. Full of magic and mystery, Heather Dixon's imaginative version of the Grimm's fairy tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" is fantasy storytelling at its best.
