This is an adaptation of the Twelve Dancing Princesses fairytale. Azalea is the crown princess and she has eleven younger sisters, alphabetically named after plants or flowers, which is cute. Their mother loves dancing and has taught all the girls to love it too. Then their mother dies and they have to go into mourning for one year, meaning absolutely no dancing. They are saved from this terrible fate, when they discover a secret passage that leads them to a dance floor and a mysterious guardian called Keeper. The longer they dance the more Azalea realizes that Keeper has a sinister agenda.[return][return]This was an enjoyable fairytale adaptation. The story emphasized the importance of family, which I liked. Each of the older girls had distinct if not very complex personalities. Really this is Azalea’s story, so she gets the most character depth. Because I knew the basics of the fairytale, the story was fairly predictable, but the author added some interesting pieces to flesh it out. Overall a solid story.
