From the Back Cover
Come and mend your broken hearts here.
Just when Azalea should feel that everything is before her—beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing—it’s taken away. All of it. And Azalea is trapped. The Keeper understands. He’s trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. So he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest, but there is a cost. The Keeper likes to keep things. Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

I enjoy fairy tale retellings, as a rule, and this one was no different. The world was nicely historical, while still having some sense of being a fairy story. I don't know how Dixon did it, but the setting just somehow lent itself to that vibe.
The characters. Keeping in mind Dixon is working with TWELVE protagonists, she did a remarkable job of making that each unique. That being said, none of them stirred me particularly. Nothing was wrong, I just didn't identify with or feel passionately attached to any of them.
Three major romances, all of which brought a smile to my face and were well done.
I took off a star because even though this book has EVERYTHING I love (fairy tales, princesses, romance, ye olde times, etc.), I didn't find myself emotionally invested in it. I felt like I was going through the motions of feeling as I read this book. It just didn't speak to me, I didn't connect with it.
That being said, the book still deserves five stars, it was nicely done and I recommend it. The four stars were more for my own experience of it. I purchased Illusionarium by this author, so that goes to show that I do like her, I just didn't have an earth-shattering experience with Entwined.
I’m going to be honest, at first I couldn’t stand this book. It literally took me about 100 pages before I actually started to like the book and the characters. I couldn’t stand that Bramble was so outspoken, I was annoyed that every single conflict or happy moment related back to a dance (and I was a ballerina for 13 years!!) and I absolutely HATED the way in which Ivy just ate and ate and ate and all the characters were all “oh father let her be (obese)” it honestly turned me off to where I almost put the book away and marked it as a “did not finish.” However, I was intrigued enough and kept going and I am so happy that I did. After the mother dies, and the girls meet Keeper, the book starts to get good. Keeper was all kinds of awesome; he was handsome, mysterious, compassionate and evil. That’s right, EVIL! There comes a point in the story where Azalea finds out that there are people who’s souls have been captured, these "people" have had their mouths sewn shut so they are bound to live forever trapped in this in-between world with the inability to speak. How horrific?! I loved this. Then, the evil comes to the castle and there is this epic battle and all of these love pairings come about in a non-obvious way and it was so sweet and refreshing from the immediate I-have-to-have-you-now that comes in most YA romance novels. Also? I cried. This alone makes me like this book because it was so unexpected. The relationship between the girls and their father is even better than the romantic relationships in the book, which is rare and beautiful.
