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 dancing . . . it’s taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands…Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.
I enjoy fantasy, and truly enjoy books that even hint at historical fiction. Unfortunately, this book did not work for me. It was odd.
Even though the scope of the story was small, the setting was pretty much isolated to the castle, and the main characters were a bunch of princess sisters, I was okay with that. I was okay with a magicked tea set and an evil creepy guy called The Keeper. What got me was the dancing. The sisters felt a strong need to dance for hours, every day. So much so that they didn’t care the cost and that deep desire they had never fully articulated itself to me in the story.
While the ending isn’t bad, it was wrapped up a little too pretty and nice for me.
I give this book 3 STACKS
See you in the STACKS,
Stacy, who wanted to like this so much more.
