Princess of the Silver Woods Review

336 pages
Release date: December 11th, 2012
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.

Review (ARC):
I didn't enjoy this as much as the first two books but it was a good conclusion to the series. Petunia is lively and has her awesome moments yet as the same time is quite gullible. Her love interest, Oliver, is a mix of bad boy charm with the willingness to do anything for Petunia. I like the way that Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood was twisted in this tale. The 12 dancing princesses is still the focus in this novel and even though they thought the curse was over they still have quite a few surprises in store for them. The princesses have learned skills to help them to take care of themselves but at times they seemed to be a little too helpless. Other than that this was a fairly interesting and funny at times story. Everything finally gets resolved in the end even though there are a few casualties along the way. I would recommend reading this novel only if you've read the first two, Princess of the Midnight Ball and Princess of Glass.
