I was so excited to read a twist on the fairytale of The 12 Dancing Princesses and while this mostly kept me interested, I wish it leaned into the fairytale more. The twists were good but it felt like there was nothing going on from page 100 until the last 20 pages. The romance felt unnecessary and I found myself skimming those parts so that I could get on with the rest of this book.
