Entwined by Heather Dixon, Read by Mandy Williams


I borrowed this book from my public library through Overdrive app.  I am looking forward to listening to this because I do love fairy tales.  I know it is a series of half a dozen finals in 10 days, but I need a break somewhere in between books and more books.

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. 

Mandy Williams is a pleasant reader.  That is important as many audio books have been ruined for me because of the reader.

Come and mend your broken hearts here. In this retelling of the classic tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," the eldest princess must fight to save her family—and her heart—from an ancient dark magic within the palace walls. "Full of mystery, lush settings, and fully orbed characters, Dixon's debut is both suspenseful and rewarding."—ALA Booklist
