To be released March 29th 2011 by Greenwillow Books
Azalea and her younger sisters 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. . . . Lush, romantic, and compelling, this debut novel by Heather Dixon will thrill fans of Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Edith Pattou.
Eager for this one. I absolutely adore this cover, and The 12 Dancing Princesses (which I'm assuming provides the basis for the story) was my favorite fairy tale growing up (along with The Elves and the Shoemaker, of all things).
