Come and mend your broken hearts here.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.
Why did I rate this four stars?
It was an excellent book, really, and I loved it, but sometimes at some parts, it was not well written; I felt as Clara did, that at some parts it was written like it was Heather Dixon's first draft.
Other than some parts needing a little work, it was good. Humerous, a bit of romance (but just the right amount so I didn't put the book down. Ha. Like I would.) and the Keeper. Ah! He was splendid. and a certain Mr. Bradford was, too.....
As I often do when holding a book I'm enjoying, I was tensing throughout some parts, waiting to turn the page and see what happens...well done.
Cheerio, y'all, have a Happy Easter this weekend.
I'll be posting a review of 'The Two Princess of Bamarre' by Gail Carson Levine soon, so (heh heh) keep posted!
