Well written enough to be enjoyed by older audiences. Characters are well drawn. Story moves nicely. I love that it is set in a Germany-esque location.
I know the story of the 12 Dancing Princesses, but still find myself pulled in to her tale to enjoy the storytelling.
Note: I recently gave up on The Princess Curse. For those that read and did not enjoy that book, you might like this one instead.
Finished note: felt a little too quickly wrapped up at the end with some characters (the uncle, for example) suddenly acting out of character. Other than that niggling (and happily, small) issue, I really enjoyed this book. Loved the hero's knitting and her note at the end, along with her instructions for the shawl.
