The Book Bloggers & Publishers Conference concluded last night, it was absolutely amazing. I can’t wait for the next one! I learned so much. Some of which I’ve already implemented. Other things will be changing over the next few days once I get over my post-conference coma. It’s hard to imagine sitting at a computer all day for 5 days would be so exhausting, but it definitely is. Reviewing and posting may be slow this week, since I’ve been unable to read the past few days, so I need to catch up. Just be patient with me!
“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.”
I bought this book because I was in love with the cover. I wasn’t entirely sure what the book itself was about, but wanted to give it a chance.
It’s one of the most elegantly written books, I’ve read in awhile. It’s simply lyrical, I’m still in awe from reading it. Everything had a dream-like quality to it. I love fairy tales, this one didn’t disappoint. The characters were all enjoyable. Azalea’s love and protection for her sisters was endearing. I do wish we could’ve gotten to know Lord Bradford better. Overall, it’s worth picking up if you love a good fairy tale.
