Princess Of The Midnight Ball-A Book Review

6 Apr

Princess of the Midnight Ball

Princesses Rose, Lily, Jonquil, Violet, Poppy, Daisy, Lilac, Hyacinth, Lilac,  Iris, Pansy, Orchid, and Petunia are forced to dance against their will every night at midnight in the Under Stone Realm because their Mother, Queen Maude had made a deal with The King Under Stone and his twelve sons. Now it’s a few years later and Queen Maude has died the only thing left to remind you of her is her garden full of flowers and her daughters named after flowers. Meet Galen, a young solider returning back from the war, his family is dead and goes off to look for his uncle. Soon Galen finds himself working in the Queen’s garden at the castle. When Rose and Galen first meet it is a terrible sight. Rose falls into a fountain and gets a disease which her eleven sisters catch as quickly as she did. Now everyone is hearing about the princesses’ worn out dancing slippers, why were they dancing if they were sick? Many princes had tried to find out and were found dead the week later. Galen did not care, he had to find out and help Rose…and her sisters, (but mainly Rose.) Then the princesses are accused of witch craft, Galen knows this is not true and feels like he is the one to help. But he is not the only one who knows the Queen and princesses secrets. But he loves Rose….

My Thoughts: I love Jessica Day George and first read her book Tuesdays at the castle, this was not as good but I still loved the take on the Twelve Dancing Princesses, I hope there is a third book in the series, I already read the sequel. I give this book four and a half stars out of five.
