The Dancing Princess Review
Some of my favorite summer memories growing up were sleeping over at my Grandma's house and reading her Good Housekeeping magazines. I especially like the novella that was included in each magazine. It was liked reading a book in an hour or two. This week I am back at the house my Grandmother lived in. Instead of a Good Housekeeping novella, I was reading The Dancing Princess. I felt like I was that teenage girl again curled up with a good read. It was a great way to end my day reading a book from beginning to end.
In her series, A Twist of Adventure, Kendra Ardnek, takes a familiar fairy tale and adds a twist that you might not expect. For the Dancing Princess, it was just the right mix of old and new. Will a princess plagued by nightmares be able to help a king and his brothers or will they be cursed forever? I look forward to reading the other books in the series. I also plan on recommending the series to my daughter who shares my love of reading and fairy tales. Each book can be read in two or three hours which makes them perfect for reading on a trip or even a quiet evening or afternoon at home.
The author bio describes Kendra as the self-proclaimed Arista of Fairy Tales. She lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas with her dragon babies and massive herd of mini-giraffes, and she is still waiting for one of of her fifty nutcrackers to come to life and marry her. When not writing, you can usually find her sitting in a random box, and she's frequently known to act before she thinks.
Kendra is releasing her book as part of the Tattered Slippers blog tour
