book review: "entwined" by heather dixon

"Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her...beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with'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."

What sold me on the book is the cover. It's beautiful! I like the font of the title and the dress and the colors - it completely grabbed my attention. I first heard about the book through the Reading Clean Spotlight on Reading Teen. Having read The Twelve Dancing Princesses children's book, I was excited at reading a YA book based on it. Overall, it was an ok read for me - I found it to be a little too dark for my liking. It had its good points though. For example, I liked Bramble - I thoroughly enjoyed her sarcasm :) However, while I loved the cover and the idea for the story, this wouldn't be a book I'd re-read again.
