Synopsis(Goodreads): Come and mend your broken hearts here.

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.

My Review
I adore fairy tales and fairytale retellings. ADORE them. They remind me of when I was a little kid and read underneath my covers at night. And Entwined definitely made me feel that way.
When I first started Entwined I thought it was going to be really light and fluffy, but I was wrong. While this book has lots of happy, fluffy moments, it also has lots of darker stuff going on too. There are lots of different things that happen throughout the course of the book that make you want to keep going, because they truly hook your attention. Heather Dixon's writing style also does a great job of keeping you interested. It's really poetic and does a great job of describing all of Azalea's surroundings.
Azalea and her sister's are lovely to read about. Azalea is really strong despite what she's going through and I thought that was lovely. She was refreshing to read about because she cared more about her family than she cared about herself. Bramble was my favorite of the sisters. She was just so spunky!
Rating: 4.5/5 worms
I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves darker fairy tales!
