Présentation de l'éditeur

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

Just when Azalea should feel that everything is before her—beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing—it's taken away. All of it. And Azalea is trapped. The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. 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. "Readers who enjoy stories of royalty, romance, and magic will delight in Dixon's first novel."—Publishers Weekly

On retrouve l'atmosphère d'un conte de fées, mais avec une histoire et des personnages beaucoup plus approfondis! C'est un régal. C'est une excellente réécriture du conte des frères Grimm "the twelve dancing princesses".

On Christmas Day, Azalea's mother passes away and the whole country begins a year of mourning. During that time, Azalea and her eleven sisters have to wear black, stay inside the castle, aren't allowed to dance, and their father has grown distant and ignores them.

Desperate for some grasp at their former life, the girls begin dancing in secret. When they get caught by their father, however, they search for another location. When they discover a magic passage to a place ran by the Keeper, they are thrilled to be invited back every night to dance if they so desire.

When the Keeper starts becoming cruel and violent and demanding that Azalea find the magic object to free him, things become desperate for the princesses. To make matters worse, the king finds out about their evening dancing and puts out an advertisement asking single, eligible males who think they can solve the riddle of the princesses' evening excursions to come and give it a shot.

Will the princesses find a way to stop the Keeper? Will they be able to mend their broken family?

A retelling of the fairy tale, THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES, this touching, entertaining version will delight fans of Jessica Day George, Mette Ivie Harrison, Gail Carson Levine, Cameron Dokey, and other fairy tale re-tellers for older readers. The characters are well-developed, and the plot does a great job of holding the reader's interest.

Those who like fantasy, adventure, romance, and comedy will all enjoy reading ENTWINED.

HASH(0x8f4951a4) étoiles sur 5 Simply Delightful! 28 janvier 2011
Par J.Prather - Publié sur
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Entwined is a delightful retelling of the Grimm's fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. While my taste in fairy tales typically runs more to the evil witch or flesh eating ogre variety, I was quick to recognize all the basic story elements from the original. The book takes place during the year of mourning following the death of the Queen, mother to twelve daughters all named after flowers. The eldest daughter (Azalea), is the primary focus of the tale which details her efforts to take care of her sisters after their mother's death.

Azalea is a wonderful character. First seen at what is essentially her "coming out" ball, we follow her growth from a girl most concerned with balls and dancing to a girl with a strong sense of family and loyalty. All of her sisters are also well portrayed, each having characteristics that will endear them to readers and easily enable them to differentiate between each girl. Clover and Bramble, the two who are next in line following Azalea are each as well developed and eventually have their own roles to play in the story.

There are so many things going on with this story that readers will be entranced from the beginning. The dancing, balls, gentlemen suitors, and gowns will appeal to any young girl who ever fancied herself a princess. There are also elements of magic and adventure, and a villain who provides some genuinely creepy moments. The author does an excellent job creating a believable environment, and while there's not a lot of world building going on, it doesn't detract from a story that is expertly plotted and paced.

This is a great fantasy that transitions well from light moments to chilly moments of genuine peril that will keep the pages turning. There are romantic elements that are not overdone and left me with a big smile on my face, and sinister moments that made me stay up late so I could finish. The entire book has a cinematic quality to it that guarantees a great flow and makes this one a perfect recommend for young fantasy lovers. This is a fantastic choice for grades six and up, or any adult who wishes to remember what reading a great fairy tale feels like. Don't pass this one up. Recommended.

HASH(0x8f57ab70) étoiles sur 5 A Beautiful Rendition of The Twelve Dancing Princesses 22 avril 2011
Par Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Publié sur

The Twelve Dancing Princesses has always been my favorite fairy tale. While the gorgeous cover is what initially made me see what Heather Dixon's debut novel, Entwined, was all about, the fact that it retold this tale made it a Day One Buy for me. Lush and descriptive, Entwined brings the tale to life like never before. I loved the way Dixon extracted the best parts of the story and tweaked other aspects, making the story fresh and vibrant. It manages to remain true to the original tale while still becoming its own entity, which can be hard to pull off when creating a new version.

Despite the fact that there are twelve princesses involved in this tale, Dixon uses a creative way of allowing readers to remember who's who by naming them alphabetically. Our main character, Azalea, is the crown princess, followed by her sisters, Bramble, Clover, Delphinium, Evening Primrose (Eve), Flora, Goldenrod, Hollyhock, Ivy, Jessamine, Kale, and Lily. Not only are they all named after plants and flowers, the very fact that they're named such reveals the way their father the king leads a very structured lifestyle. This trick is also good for readers. The girls are all about a year apart; Azalea is fifteen at the novel's start and baby Lily is a newborn. If readers are confused about why Ivy is acting like a child, for example, it's easy to figure out that she's one of the youngest princesses.

The book starts off with Azalea getting ready for her first yuletide ball now that she's finally of age. We immediately see how important dancing is to her. I love the way Dixon fleshes out this interest and turns it into an entity of its own. Even the novel's title, Entwined, is based on a dance called the Entwine, which is a clever twist (that taught me something new, no less!). In the original fairy tale, we never know why the princesses go dancing each night or how they found the enchanted forest in the first place. In Entwined, however, we're with the girls every step of the way. We see how they're no longer allowed to dance after their mother passes away during childbirth. They feel stifled during their year of mourning. They find the enchanted forest within the walls of the castle quite by mistake, but through it, can cherish their mother's memory through dance, a need no one but the princesses can comprehend. Love interests are introduced early on, allowing time for love to blossom. The man in charge of the enchanted dance, Keeper, is mysterious and written in such a way, my arms got goosebumps as I read. The forest itself is gorgeous and I could see it in my mind's eye. Because Dixon focused on making the fairy tale's nemesis so dark, she maintained a light balance in the "real world." Unlike in the original, men aren't put to death if they're unable to discover how the girls manage to dance the night away. I appreciated this aspect and loved meeting all of the potential suitors. Lord Teddy and Mr. Bradford were my favorite characters. Lord Teddy stole the show every time he appeared on a page, creating many laugh-out-loud moments.

Overall, I love the way Dixon kept to the traditional tale while still giving us something new and unique. Entwined is almost five hundred pages, and when I first picked it up, I wondered how it could take so long to tell the story. The pacing remained even and never dragged. Once the story sucked me in, it was impossible to put down. The Twelve Dancing Princesses is still a favorite of mine, especially this version of the classic tale.

With such a gorgeous cover, it's not surprising that Entwined is a retelling of the classic fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. It was this amazing, romantic cover that first drew me to this novel -not to mention the intriguing title. I had high hopes for Entwined. Especially after reading Princess of the Midnight Ball, I was already in full-on fairy tale retelling mode. I truly wanted Entwined to blow Princess of the Midnight Ball out of the water and be one of my favorite reads of the year. Perhaps, going in, my expectations were too high, because, while Entwined is still a good book, it's just not a great one.

Azalea and her sisters love dancing. That is, until the night of the annual royal ball at Yuletide, when her mother dies after giving birth to Azalea's twelfth and final sister. Struck by grief, the King demands that all the girls go into mourning for a full year and, most importantly, no dancing is allowed while in mourning. But, living in a castle with a dark, magical history can have its benefits...well, most of the time. Azalea finds a new place for the girls to dance, in a magnificent palace overseen by the Keeper. Of course, the Keeper is connected to the darkness, and when Azalea and her sisters try to leave, he won't let them...

Entwined had its positives and negatives for me. Overall, it's a well-paced, enjoyable read rooted in classic fairy tales with a darker edge. The mythology Dixon creates is engaging and unique, and, by far, is the best aspect of the novel. Dixon also does an amazing job of spacing out information about world mechanics and mythology throughout the novel rather than just dumping it on readers at once.

Dixon's writing is strong, but could use a little work. The biggest problem was the lack of details when describing virtually anything, especially when it came to the fantastic world underneath the palace where the princesses dance their shoes to ribbons every night. There were so many things in this book that I could never see, so I sometimes found myself getting confused about what everything looked like. This issue also hurt the novel's overall tone, making it feel a little thin and unencompassing. I really think that if Dixon had worked a little more on setting and detail, it also would have enhanced her characters, who are just okay.

I wouldn't say that Entwined was a complete let down for me. It was well worth reading, enchanting and filled with some great things, but also some not-so-great things. Entwined really has some great potential, but it's not all realized by the end. However, it does prove that author Heather Dixon has talent and potential as a writer, and could improve with future novels.

In this elegant, chilling retelling of the Brothers Grimm's classic Twelve Dancing Princesses, debut author Heather Dixon proves to be an author to watch. Azalea, eldest of the twelve daughters of the King loves to dance more than anything. When a tragedy puts the family into mourning dancing is forbidden. But with the King away at war the girls find a way to dance in secret. A magical room hidden away within the palace where a mysterious young man, known to them only as Keeper, waits each night to welcome them to his pavilion. Dancing until their slippers are worn through each night, the twelve sisters continue sneaking away unaware that their strange host waits like a spider with the darkest intentions.

When the King returns and discovers the tattered slippers it is only the oath sworn by his daughters that keeps him from knowing the truth. Taking matters into his own hands he advertises a bargain to any young nobleman who can discover where the princesses dance each night. Several suitors come in hopes of winning Azalea's hand and the possibility of being the future king. But will the one who discovers the secret be too late?

I have a great passion for well-done retelling of classic fairytales and Entwined falls into that category with ease. Beautiful, atmospheric and intense it was difficult to put down. The characters were all so well sketched and consistent I felt like I was right there with them. Azalea was a heroine flawed and lovely, motherly and yet youthful. Each sister had a personality of her own and Dixon managed to balance them well considering how many there were. The different fellows who came to try and discover the secret were each unique and amusing in their own ways. The King in particular really won my heart with his growth as a ruler and father. Keeper was one of the most chillingly creepy villains I have read to date and this was done with such subtlety and flare he made my skin crawl, literally.

The plot does run a little slow at times, with the princesses stuck in the palace for mourning there are times when you could feel their frustration, their boredom. The magic within the plot is interesting and explained just enough to be useful for the plot but not heavy. Romantic elements are subtle throughout the first two-thirds of the tale but become an important part of the story as the suitors come to attempt figuring out where the princesses are dancing. If you love a romance there is more than one happening in this story which for me made it that much more enjoyable.

With Entwined I was thoroughly entertained, pulled through many emotional highs and lows. I loved this book. I would recommend it for fans of romantic fantasy but especially for readers who like fairytale retellings. While this is a young adult book I think it would be suitable for all ages, keeping in mind it might be a bit scary for the youngest readers. I will be looking forward to more from Dixon, whom I hope plans to write more retellings with the same imaginative twists and romantic undertones she pulled off so well here.

Loosely based on the classic story of the 12 Dancing Princesses, "Entwined" is a book, that if you are an adult, you are going to want to pick up when you want something exceedingly light and frothy.

Adequately written, I found that my interest level only rose to the 'marginal' level. The principle obstacles being the shallow characterizations -- over and over I was put in mind of the Barbie movie -- and the virtually non-existent descriptions of scene-and-setting.

As for my reading experience, unfortunately for me, I was in a mood where little things niggled. And as a consequence the familiar phrases that kept cropping up got under my skin and on my nerves. The king, for example, was forever 'sucking in his cheeks' in reaction to everything, and for her part, the heroine Azalea was persistently pressing her fingernails into the palms of her hands. At least once every 5 pages -- which is a lot of nail marks. I can't imagine what her poor hands must have looked liked. And maybe the author meant these phrases to be archetypal traits of the characters, but the editor should have talked her into using a more varied palette.

Generally speaking, I'd say that this book would be fine for Tweens and Middle-graders. There's no violence, bad language, or adult situations. The plot has features of interest, and the book is a quick read, being in a fairly large font with nice wide spacing between sentences. Adults and Young Adults might like it as well if they're in the mood for a 'nice read' that isn't a challenge. Pleasant fairy-tale stuff.
