 Erin has a good reason for sneaking into a fae castle: her sisters—princesses of Erdhea—have been secretly visiting it for months, and she just knows they’re in trouble. Unfortunately that’s not an excuse she can give fae lord Desmond when she gets caught. Because Erin is a princess too, and whatever schemes Desmond has, Erin wants no part of them. Instead, she tells him she’s a simple war nurse, and offers no excuse at all.

Desmond can’t have humans wandering in and out of his castle, not when the Fae’s presence in Erdhea must remain hidden. He needs to know how and why Erin sneaked in. But before long, his concerns about Erin are blooming into interest, then fascination, then something else altogether. Under the eye of a lovelorn fae lord, can Erin keep her secrets? Will she even want to?

Eleven Dancing Sisters by Melody Wiklund

Eleven Dancing SistersA cloak imbued with ancient magic, a hidden fae kingdom whose power was bound by humans, a fae bargain and a runaway princess comes home in Melody Wiklund’s YA fantasy, ELEVEN DANCING SISTERS.

Erin left her father’s castle a beautiful, headstrong teen. She came back a battle-scarred young woman on a mission to save her eleven sisters from the fate of a bargain struck by a fae King desperate to regain the powers his people lost. She is unrecognizable, no longer beautiful and thought to be spy, yet Desmond cannot help but be intrigued by the mysterious intruder he names Miss Troll in his cruel attempt to remind her of her disfigurements. Yet, it will prove out that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and comes from a far deeper place than one’s skin as one sister will sacrifice all she has learned to hold dear while keeping her noble secrets and deceiving the man she has learned to care for. What will her good intentions cost her?

Melody Wiklund’s fantasy tale of love, loss and coming of age gives us a young heroine who sets the bar high in overcoming adversity and learning selflessness to protect those she loves. Erin is a clever heroine whose heart doesn’t get in the way of what she perceives as her duty to her king, humanity and those she loves. Wonderful story telling that is both magical and intriguing, as well as a testament to inner strength in the face of adversity in a world split by the quest for un-tempered power.

I received this copy from Evernight Teen in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
