I love, love, love faerytales. I know, I've said it many times, but I can't help saying it over and over again. I love faerytales!!! Entwined was one princess faerytale that I immensely enjoyed.
Entwined by Heather Dixon. Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it. The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And 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.
I felt that the imagery in this book was just right. Dixon explored the enchanted castle just so - not too many details, but enough so that the reader's imagination can run wild.
No matter how numerous the supporting characters were, it never got too confusing, nor annoying, because they all had unique and distinct personalities. It was a pleasure to read about how Azalea interacted with her eleven sisters. The main villain, The Keeper, was just fantastically evil (I do so love a good villain!).
The only thing I didn't like about it was, well, the amount of dancing. I mean, surely, no one could love dancing that much, that they'd even put themselves in danger, just to be able to dance for a few hours?
Who would I recommend this to? Disney Princess fans.
