When Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor's twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it's not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse. The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.

I read this book without reading the first two. I didn't feel lost. I think it was a magical story all on its own and I look forward to backtracking to the first books!

When I started reading this book, I myself had not realize...
The final installment in Jessica Day George's middle grade series about the 12 princesses of Westalin. This is a mash up of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood, and involves a return to the World Under Stone.I liked it a lot. There was a bit of a Russian flair to this one, which I very much enjoyed. Very...
