Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

From the Cover:
A tale of twelve princesses doomed to dance until dawn…

Galen is a young soldier returning from war; Rose is one of twelve princesses condemned to dance each night for the King Under Stone. Together Galen and Rose will search for a way to break the curse that forces the princesses to dance at the midnight balls. All they need is one invisibility cloak, a black wool chain knit with enchanted silver needles, and that most critical ingredient of all—true love—to conquer their foes in the dark halls below. But malevolent forces are working against them above ground as well, and as cruel as the King Under Stone has seemed, his wrath is mere irritation compared to the evil that awaits Galen and Rose in the brighter world above.

Captivating from start to finish, Jessica Day George’s take on the Grimms’ tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses demonstrates yet again her mastery at spinning something entirely fresh out of a story you thought you knew.

My take on the book:
I loved it! I was hooked from the start. It was a fun light read. I read it in an afternoon. The story had a great flow everything fell into place. It was worth every penny! I would buy it again. I look forward to reading more of Jessica Day George's other books. Pick up this book you will be so happy you did. I purchased this book.
