: Entwined (): Heather Dixon: Books

All the girls want to dance and laugh again, but the older ones are also drawn to the guardian of that enchanted place—a graceful, black-haired youth, who has sixon name except the title Keeper. There they meet the Keeper, a dashing, young man dressed in all black. Also, let me say how relieved I was when Keeper wasn’t a serious love interest.
I feel like it’s a big thing when girls, especially, don’t feel loved by their father. As for a retelling, I felt this was a pretty run of the mill fairytale world. He wore a costume of a long waistcoat and a sweeping cloak that brushed the edge of the marble. The next morning Fairweller informs the princesses their mother died in the night, giving birth to their twelfth sister, Lily.
She barely stops herself, and her overlay of kindness is hasty and thin. There is no depth. Diixon plot moves swiftly along, allowing some things that should always happen in novels to take place.
