"Juliet Marillier is among the most skilled of fantasy writers" (Sara Douglass)Jena, along with her five sisters and constant companion, the frog she calls Gogu, lives in a crumbling castle on the fringe of a wildwood in Transylvania. Theirs has always been a privileged if somewhat restricted life, however, the girls share a fantastic secret, which they have kept hidden even from their family for twelve long years. When Jena's father falls ill and must leave their forest home over the winter, Jena and her older sister Tati are left in charge. Everything runs like clockwork until a tragic accident allows their greedy cousin Cezar to take control. When it becomes clear that their secret is in danger of discovery, Jena knows there is only one place, no matter how dangerous, she can go to for help...

I can't believe I haven't read this until now. It was really good. I love that it's placed in Transylvania - the setting is so well done. If you like fairy tales you will like this book.

Great story! I appreciated the author's efforts in staying true to Romanian folklore, without all the Dracula stuff. An entertaining read.

Charming retelling of the folktale "The 12 Dancing Princesses". Set in Romania and incorporating much of that cultural milieu, it's a great read wtih strong female characters.
