Not the knights, lords, or ladies-in-waiting. When the queen blames the royal shoemaker, his apprentice, Phoenix Dance, puts her life at risk to solve the mystery. She braves magic spells, dragons, evil wizards, and the treachery of the princesses themselves. As Phoenix faces these dangers, she finds herself caught in the dangerous dance inside herself a dance of darkness and light, a dance that presents her with the greatest challenge of her life.This captivating companion to Aria of the Sea weaves a retelling of Grimms fairy tale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses with the story of a young womans inward journey toward an understanding of a scary, unpredictable part of her own nature.
