Entwined

Entwined by Heather Dixon.


Summery:When Azalea's mother dies her world is turned upside down.She must take care of her younger sisters.All eleven of them.She promised her mother.There father seems to want nothing to do with them.They are in a year of black dresses and no dancing.So when they find a secret magic passage to a secret pavilion where they can dance they don't hesitate.But something starts to go bad.They are being held to a promise by the strange Keeper(and that is his name too) of the pavilion.
And there father is showing more interest now that they are going somewhere to dance and won't tell him(they swore on silver).He sets up a sort of contest, to see if anyone can figure out where they are going.

Romance:A couple kisses, talk of arranged marriages, talk of marriage (just getting married nothing else), teasing about liking someone, talking about someone liking someone, realizing someone was in love and tingles.And one-two hugs.

Language:None.

Violence:Swearing on Silver(then you can't talk about what you promised.It won't let you), Keeper swearing to kill the King and almost succeeding, several shootings(I don't think anyone was hit), coming back from war wounded, some torturing(talking about it or seeing it:sewing eyes shut, stealing souls after the person died, ripping off limbs, drinking blood as an oath.Nothing that visual though.Just stories.) and several people getting hit.

Other:Magic.

Time Period:Medieval.

What I Thought:Awesome, I could see some similarity to The Princess of The Midnight Ball (Jessica day George) like how she(Heather) described Keeper and the way some of the girls acted.It is a great retelling and fairy tale.Two thumbs up!

Rating & Age:5 stars.14 up.
