Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Come and mend your broken hearts here. In this retelling of the classic tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," the eldest princess must fight to save her family—and her heart—from an ancient dark magic within the palace walls. "Full of mystery, lush settings, and fully orbed characters, Dixon's debut is both suspenseful and rewarding."—ALA Booklist

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. "Readers who enjoy stories of royalty, romance, and magic will delight in Dixon's first novel."—Publishers Weekly

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Synopsis:

Rough and tumble Saturday tries to live up to her role as sister to the new queen in this delightful companion to Enchanted

Synopsis:

Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?" As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

How do you deal with grief? Just as people express love in different ways, they deal with grief in different ways. When the queen dies, the king imposes a harsh life of mourning on his twelve daughters before leaving the castle and his children behind. Princess Azalea, oldest of the twelve, feels the king has abandoned them just when they need him most. The girls deal with grief in their own way, practicing the dances their mother taught them. When they learn of the Keeper and his secret place beneath the castle where they can dance as much as they wish, Azalea feels they can finally free themselves of their father's stifling rules. The Keeper, however, has his own agenda and uses the girls' anger at their father and grief for their mother for his own ends.

Based on the fairy tale of the twelve dancing princesses, Entwined expands its source material to a look at love and grief and the understanding required for both.

This enchanting tale is viewed through the eyes of Azalea. Just when she has everything she could ask for like beautiful gown, a palace, dancing the night away, 11 sisters, and all of the other wonderful delicacies. Then right before her eyes they all float away when the royal family is put into mourning. Including the thing they love the most dancing. When Azalea discovers a secret passage which leads to a pavilion in the palace wall where they can dance the night away she also meets Mr. Keeper. She may not know how much trouble she has put everyone in until it is too late.

The feelings that Azalea feels in this book are so real. The loss, understanding, regret, and abandonment are so dynamic. The feelings between Azalea and her Father are what some people may be feeling. This book will have you on the edge of your seat until the end! I would recommend it to anyone!

Charming retelling of the Grimm's fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Easy, quick read that touches on family, trust, loyalty and love with just a touch of magic. Heather Dixon does a wonderful job retelling the story in a way that makes it new and fresh.

The story takes place over the span of 1 year with the main focus on Azalea, the eldest of 12 sisters. The book opens with a delightful yuletide ball which ends with the tragic death of the Queen, their mother, and the feeling of abandonment as their father pulls away to deal with his grief. You follow Azalea as she cares for her sisters and creates a an environment that encourages them to not only remember their mother through dance, a thing she cherished, but to thrive with the absentee father. Magic, mayhem and misunderstanding lead everyone to the happily ever after that is characteristic of fairy tales.
