Entwined by Heather Dixon
After the death of their mother Azalea and her 11 sisters are forbidden to dance in public. When they follow a secret passage through an enchanted forest of silver trees they find a mysterious man named Keeper who allows them to dance in his hall every night. At first the girls are delighted with their good fortune but they soon begin to see that Keeper has some sinister motives for allowing them to visit each night. When the king learns that they have been dancing despite the ban he devises a plan to figure out where they are going - young men can try to discover the princess's secret in exchange for one of their hands in marriage. This is a lush retelling of the fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Azalea is feisty girl who takes care of all her sisters while trying to get their father more involved in their lives. Keeper emerges slowly as a villain but he is a nasty one once he shows his true colors! If you like romance, magic and fairy tales, this is the book for you!
