High in the Transylvanian woods, at the castle Piscul Draculi, live five daughters and their doting father. It's an idyllic life for Jena, the second eldest, who spends her time exploring the mysterious forest with her constant companion, a most unusual frog.

There they dance through the night with the fey creatures of this magical realm. But their peace is shattered when Father falls ill and must go to the southern parts to recover, for that is when cousin Cezar arrives. Though he's there to help the girls survive the brutal winter, Jena suspects he has darker motives in store. Meanwhile, Jena's sister has fallen in love with a dangerous creature of the Other Kingdom--an impossible union it's up to Jena to stop.When Cezar's grip of power begins to tighten, at stake is everything Jena loves:...

I can't believe I haven't read this until now. It was really good. I love that it's placed in Transylvania - the setting is so well done. If you like fairy tales you will like this book.

Great story! I appreciated the author's efforts in staying true to Romanian folklore, without all the Dracula stuff. An entertaining read.

Charming retelling of the folktale "The 12 Dancing Princesses". Set in Romania and incorporating much of that cultural milieu, it's a great read wtih strong female characters.
