Blurb From Goodreads: Confined to their dreary castle while mourning their mother's death, Princess Azalea and her 11 sisters join The Keeper, who is trapped in a magic passageway, in a nightly dance that soon becomes nightmarish.
          If I had to describe this book in one word, I would probably go with Enchanting. Yeah, I know, that sounds corny. But it describes a little bit of how I felt as I read it. Enchanted. Azalea, the first born of twelve princesses, discovers a magic passageway leading to a [something that I'm not going to say because the way it was described was too epic for me to try to convey without spoiling it]. Her sisters follower her and the twelve of them meet The Keeper, who is at first is fantastic in their eyes. Keeper allows the girls to come every night to dance in his [something I'm not going to say...], but as the story progresses Azalea discovers their host is not all he's cracked up to be.

          To put it short, I really, really liked this book. A lot. I felt drawn in and engaged, if only in watching the tale unfold. Dixon is fantastic at description, and on more than one occasion I felt totally lost in the story, totally fascinated by the scenes flashing in my head as I read. This one had me flipping pages. Quickly. And staying up way to late just to read "one more chapter." And again the next day. I basically had to finish it before I could do anything productive whatsoever.

          I really didn't have any complaints, so I'm going to end this review here before I go off spoiling the story for the rest of you who haven't read it yet. I was not required nor asked to write a review, nor a positive one at that. I was not compensated for this review.
