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.--Goodreads
There's something about a book cover with a gorgeous ball gown, a lush forest, and a Gothic castle that just makes me giddy. So despite the fact that many of the earliest reviews of this have so far been lukewarm, I am still gonna give it a shot and, if nothing else, stare at the cover and pretend the book is great!
I'm also really intrigued by this whole having eleven sisters thing. I have one sister and though we get along, I can't imagine having eleven siblings! Especially sisters! Can you imagine the chaos? And the clothes? And the bitchy fights?! However, if they're stepping through an enchanted passage to dance in a silver forest, I'm thinking that they probably get along juuuust fine.
