Book Review: Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier

Wildwood Dancingis a mix of several different classic fairy tales, including Twelve Dancing Princesses. The story revolves around five sisters who escape to the Other Kingdom every full moon to dance the night away. Jena, the second oldest, seems the most sensible of the family and must try to take care of things while their father is away, along with her good friend who also happens to be an enchanted frog. When their cousin begins to interfere in the name of helping his poor female cousins, things begin to get more complicated, both at home and in the Other Kingdom.

This is a beautiful fairy tale with amazing details and good story. I loved the atmosphere the book created with its location and descriptions. I didn't quite guess some of the ending, but it was leading me there all along. I highly recommend this to fans of fairy tale retellings.

s-factor: none

mrg-factor: none
Just good clean romance!

v-factor: ->

Not really violent, but some scary incidents - not a Disney story.

Overall rating: *****
