Book Review: Entwined by Heather Dixon
“He’s around the twist,’ said Azalea. ‘Breaking all the windows? He’s mad.’
‘Ah, no,’ said the King. ‘It’s only madness if you actually do it. If you want to break all the windows in the house and drown yourself in a bucket but don’t actually do it, well, that’s love.”
One word to describe this book: EERIE
I first bought this book mainly because of the cover, and that it was a retelling of the story The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I loved that story ever since I was young so I was fascinated by the story indeed.
It was a wonderful, crazy yet eerie retelling. What makes me so fond of it is that the mysteriousness is always there every page so as to why I’m questioning about my curiosity towards the characters.
The story is actually about Azalea and her younger sisters who loves to dance in the mysterious silver forest every night, escaping from the sadness of the palace and their father’s grief. What they don’t understand—although as time passes they begin to get an inkling of the danger they are in—is that the mysterious and dashing Keeper is tightening his snare with deadly purpose. Luckily, Azalea is brave and steadfast. Luckily, a handsome young army captain also has his eye on Azalea.
The Keeper was so mysteriously handsome, and (yes I was imagining his face HAHA) and whoever Azalea might be, she must really be beautiful to match the Keeper.
