Princess of the Midnight Ball

Princess of the Midnight Ball
by Jessica Day George

Many may know the tale of the 12 Dancing Princesses. Barbie even has a DVD about it. But this retelling spins the tale of the humble soldier-turned-gardener who falls in love with the eldest princess and is determined to save her.

Along the way, there are magic spells, capes that make the wearer invisible, bargains with the king of the kingdom under stone, arranged marriages, death, murder, dancing, and Midnight Balls.

To save his beloved Princess Rose, Galen must be more clever than the average person, and more than a little lucky.

Can Galen save Rose from her mother's deal with the king bound to live underground by magic hundreds of years old? Can he prevent her and her 11 sisters from having to marry the 12 sons of that king? Can he stop the invasion of the king's grandchildren, who could possibly rise above the earth and take it over?

There's only one way to find out.
