Book Review: Entwined by Heather Dixon

Hello everyone! I finsihed reading Entwined by Heather Dixon. Here is my review and I hope you enjoy:

Summary: 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.

Review: This book to my breath away and kept it. Through most of my life I have fallen in love with fairy tale stories like Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, but the Twelve Dancing Princesses has to be the best one of all time. I loved every single character from start to finished. The struggle had to go through to show how much they truly loved each other and what family really means to them all. This book is a fairy tale in modern day, no, this is a real fairy tale with knighs, balls, gowns, dancing, dark magic, and love, which makes this story a thousand times better, then if the author took the story and mixed with modern day. I fell in love with all the sisters, who's names are Azalea who was the strongest out of all the sisters and show power she didn't even know she had inside herself that helped her solve all her probelms, Bramble who was the funniest, but also a little mean at times, but in a good way. Clove, who was very innocent and Delphinium who thought she knew everything about love, even if she was only  twelve years old. There was also Eve, who enoyed to read and Flora and Goldenrod, who were the twins. Also there was Hollyhock, Ivy, who LOVED to eat, and Jessamine, Kale, and Lilly, who was born at the very beginning of the novel. There were other characters like the King, who was a amazing father and by the end of the story really showed how much he loved his family, also Lord Bramdford, who was a lolvely man, but also a had very big nose and amazing brown eyes. Also Lord Teddie, who was the funniest character of all and Prime Minister Fairweller, who seemed mean of the outside, but was big softy deep deep down. Last but not least Mr. Keeper, who had turned to be my favorite character of all time. He was the cruelest men in almost of the books I have ever read, with the way he could be nice at times, but then completely turn on you and stab you in the back when your not looking. The writing style in this novel completely pulled me in with twisted and turns at every corner, and one of the best parts of the writing style was just the simple way every character talked. I give this book a 5/5 stars!
