Princess of the Midnight Ball. It sounded cool the cover looked cool, and, when I looked on the library site THEY HAD IT!!! I was super excited because it was a retelling of the "Twelve Dancing Princess's" I also ordered all of her other books which they had.
The author's name was Jessica Day George.
And she's now one of my all time favourite author's along with Christopher Paolini, John Flanagan, Shannon Hale, Gerald Morris, C. S. Lewis, Regina Doman, Cornelia Funke and all those other author's who's books I love. (You can probably tell I read a lot of fiction, don't worry, it's not all I read) ;)
I actually read the sequel to Princess of the Midnight Ball first which is called "Princess of Glass" A retelling of Cinderella. It came first from the library and Autumn my older sister was busy previewing another of J. D. George's books called Dragon Slippers.
The next of her books which I read was "Dragon Slipper's" and unlike the other two book's which I had read before it wasn't like the other two books where they were fairy tale retellings. And it's also told in first person instead of third.
Dragon Spear. Dragon Flight was sort of an AHHH!!! Ending and I seriously will have to wait until my birthday I think to ask for it and see if I get it.
Princess of the Midnight Ball I finished only the other day and I totally loved it. I kind of knew what happened because I had read Princess of Glass before hand but that didn't stop me from reading it as fast as I could. Galen was really smart with trying to figure out their secret and I totally loved his um, well, I don't want to spoil it for you so I'll just say I loved his thing and his knitting was quite cool.
Pansy was absolutely cute and I hated Under Stone because he made them dance each night.
Walter was a nice character and King Gregor was from what I could say, was a caring Father. Mister Orm was like getting on my nerves alot but not Tante Liesel she was great.
Well, I am now waiting for J.D. Georges next books which I can't get right now, or haven't been published yet. i.e.
"Tuesdays at the Castle", "Princess of the Silver Wood", and Dragon Spear.
Oh, yeah and you really need to read these, like seriously.....they're awesome.
