    1. This story was lacking in too many elements to be enjoyable for me The characters were so underdeveloped that the weren t likable the writing didn t make me love the hero or hate the villain The romance lacked passion and believability I couldn t ever figure out what the hero and heroine saw in each other, and why the hero would go to such lengths to save the heroine And the plot was so predicable I never wondered whether or not the princesses would be saved in the end, and the ending wasn t sus [...]


    2. That was a sweet retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses It s in a German setting and follows the original story really well A lot of people ask me for recommendations for clean, happy fantasy adventures with a hint of romance, so this is pretty much the definition of that It s all very cute and peaceful, yet there s still a full plot and the characters are believable The greatest part is how the soldier Galen is always knitting something and there are actually patterns in the back for everyt [...]


    3. Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature The malevolent King Under Stone cuts not one deal, but two, with the queen of the country of Westfalin first, that she will be able to have children second, that Westfalin will be victorious in its battles against other countries In return, the human queen agrees to spend one night per week dancing with the King Under Stone in his underground kingdom But the once human king has an agenda, and supernatural beings have a way of twisting their agreem [...]


    4. Reread this April 2011, as I get ready to write the third book Kinda impressed with myself fun characters, and I m excited to get back into their heads.


    5. I couldn t fall asleep one night and without even realizing it I was so caught up and enchanted by the story it was six in the morning when I finished the book.This is a retelling but I m not familiar with the original tale, so I can t say how close it is to the original It stands on it s own though and you don t need any prior knowledge of the story to enjoy it.The story starts out with our hero Galen great name by the way coming back from a war that he and his fellow soldiers have been fightin [...]


    6. I bought this book yesterday at work, and was excited to start it I had some time in the evening and read a few pages When I woke early this morning and couldn t get back to sleep, I decided to read for a while I couldn t stop until I had finished the WHOLE THING I loved it I have read other variations on the 12 dancing princesses, but this one had different twist and turns that made it so much different and better.


    7. And all because of some shoes, Galen murmured as they hurried away What Ulrike had to trot to keep up with him This all began because of their shoes being worn out night after night, he said He had fallen into an easy quick march pace He put an arm around his cousin s waist to help her along If someone could just figure out what they do every night Princess of the Midnight Ball is a retelling of the old favourite fairy tale of The Twelve Dancing Princesses and it is just lovely LOVELY A book tha [...]


    8. Felt just like the fairytales I grew up on Maybe not my favorite book as far as YA or romance, but it was still spellbinding from first page to last, there s just something special about the storytelling that made me feel as if I were reliving the old illustrated collection I grew up on I would get this book for anyone that loves fairytales in a heartbeat.


    9. Princess of the Midnight Ball is an utterly inoffensive retelling of Brothers Grimm s fairy tale Twelve Dancing Princesses No gore, no violence here, suitable for pretty much any age.The premise is straight forward the King of Westfalin s 12 daughters nightly wear out their dancing slippers Several princes attempt to uncover the princesses secret for a reward of inheriting the Kingdom, but fail Only 19 year old Galen an ex soldier now gardener succeeds in finding out the truth with the help of a [...]


    10. 5 out of 10 review in russianShort Soundtrack Pianochocolate WaltzCassidy Ladden ShineYuriko Nakamura Flower Well, I don t know what to say I thought it would be a true retelling for young adult auditory but this is an extended version of the old Grimm s tale for middle grade people or even children.The plot is than close to the original story about twelve princesses The book is good but the idea and its execution were shamelessly stolen Okay, it s a retelling, usually this is normal But only i [...]


    11. So, unfortunately I promised a few people that I would write a review on this book I mean, maybe one or two so here s my best attempt at writing one note I am not particularly good at writing thoughtful, lengthy reviews To be quite frank, upon finishing Princess of the Midnight Ball I felt deeply annoyed at myself for ever having picked up this book and having it sit in the corner of my room, making me feel guilty, for almost eight months At times this book showed some potential most definitely [...]


    12. A delightful retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses with charming and interesting characters and the true meaning of love.


    13. Princess of the Midnight Ball is a retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses story Maybe I haven t looked closely enough, but one rarely sees this particular story get retold Probably because it requires a big cast of characters Yes, there are indeed twelve dancing princesses here, and George tries valiantly to give them all personality, but there s only so much an author can do in 270 pages That said, the featured princesses were all interesting enough that it didn t bother me that some Daisy, [...]


    14. What young girl wouldn t love to dance away her nights in this splendid castle in the arms of a handsome suitor I was hooked with the blurb of this book because I used to watch Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses don t judge, asshole.Princess of the Midnight Ball is a fun read I enjoyed reading it because on a scale from 1 10, the fluffiness level of this book would be 7.5.Don t expect this to be an epic read because it s not This book is just perfect if you want to read something breezy wi [...]



    15. While I wouldn t normally pick up a fantasy fairytale book as fantasy isn t my favorite genre , Princess of the Midnight Ball was highly recommended to my by a friend After reading the book, I am glad I took her advice to get a copy I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet fairytale It made for a very easy read and the story plot captivated me Galen was easy to grow to like as the hero of this tale I was surprised that most often the story was written from his POV point of view and not Princess Rose, but [...]


    16. This is going to be a real quick overview since I don t have much time right now but I cannot hold in all my feels for this book This is a dark re telling but at the same time it s kind of fluffy It has that fairy tale feel to it since well it is a re telling so not everything will always line up but somehow this story still charmed me to no ends.The romance could be seen as insta, no doubt, but it didn t bother me I enjoyed it if only I wished there was a little development going on but that s [...]


    17. I loved this retelling of the twelve dancing princesses I also loved that the hero knitted So cool I ve knitted a hanger cozy and that s about it, but I remember enjoying the process a lot The description of the Under Stone kingdom was awesome I can totally picture it in my head along with the twelve dark princes.


    18. A retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, this charming novel for early teens is also good for a grownup reader Unlike the original fairy tale, in this story, the princesses don t want to dance at the Midnight Ball every night but they have no choice they are under a curse by an evil sorcerer Moreover, the curse makes it impossible for them to tell anyone or to ask for help The heroes of this story, the eldest princess, eighteen year old Rose, and a former soldier, nineteen year old Galen, f [...]


    19. I don t give four star ratings lightly, especially to young adult retellings of classic fairy tales The stories are relatively well known and have been reworked and rewritten the long and the short of it is that they have been done and done to death Finding a fresh outlook is like finding a needle in a haystack Jessica Day George s Princess of the Midnight Ball is that needle George fleshes out the back story and makes a few small changes to the original telling The result is an enchantingly fre [...]


    20. As in Sun and Moon Ice and Snow, George starts with a familiar fairy tale this time, it s The Twelve Dancing Princesses Rose is the eldest princess, cursed along with her eleven sisters all named after flowers to dance every night at the ball of the King Under Stone Galen is an soldier returned from war, now an undergardener with some unusual skills Now they must work together to free Rose and her sisters from the dreadful bargain made long ago between the King Under Stone and the queen, who die [...]


    21. Galen is a soldier, who knits his own socks, has lost his entire family in the Analousian War, and has survived to begin a new life He follows the tales of his dead mother to find her living sister And his uncle, who happens to be the head gardener for the king Thus Galen becomes an undergardener.And privy to the most dramatic mystery in the kingdom.For no one, especially the daughters of the king, can tell where they disappear each night And why their slippers are always worn through And why ev [...]


    22. I m hesitant to callPrincess of the Midnight Ball a retelling as it s not so much a retelling as it is a telling.I expect any retelling to bring something new to the original story, some new layers, better understanding of the characters, intricate backgrounds.But this book doesn t bring anything fresh Princess of the Midnight Ball is your basicThe Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling, and it stays pretty close to the original version.



    23. Please note that I gave this book 4.5 stars and rounded it to 5 stars on.After reading Silver in the Blood I was interested in reading George s other works I really did enjoy this one Probably because I read the story as a kid loved it and loved the cartoon version of it on Grimm s fairy tales George does a good job of taking this fairy tale and also tying it together in the real world at certain parts as well We follow the former soldier Galen who comes home to find his mother s family after th [...]



    24. I love all of Jessica s books They are fantasic reads Her creative story lines and well developed characters are always a joy I can never put her books down I m always so sad when I finish reading one because I want the next one immediatly If you haven t read Jessica s books you need to They are all fantasic.



    25. I fell head over heels in love with George s Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, so when I saw she was doing a retelling of one of my absolute childhood favorites, the 12 Dancing Princesses, my interest was piqued, to say the least And when I saw the gorgeous cover attached to the story I really need to tell you I bought it Though I don t love it quite as hardcore as I do Sun and Moon, this one s a definite keeper The 12 Dancing Princesses can be a tricky tale to retell because there s just such a huge [...]


    26. POTMB was just a fun, relaxing and highly enjoyable read It was the perfect addition to the Thanksgiving holidays didn t require a whole lot of analysis, wasn t written in a lofty, convoluted style, and best of all , the characters were well rounded but didn t drive me nuts Hey, I had some weird family for the holidays, I don t think I could ve handled weird characters It was just a feel good book, you know Every once in awhile, you just need to get lost in a fairytale.If you can t tell from the [...]
