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 untilPetunia 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.

This book had a really good plot. It was a bit dark for my taste. I enjoy books like this just with less... dark.

You must read the other two novels in the series first. I didn't and therefore the book felt like a wrapping up instead of a standalone and since you don't get to know the characters it feels like a flat read.

I love this book. I read them in order and thought this one absolutely summed up the others. It was the perfect final book, even if there was a smidge of hope for yet another from me, but it was still enjoyable!

Really good one of my favourites, but dang I didn't know it was the last one and I'm going to need to read the first ones last.

This was a great book with lots of interesting characters and a great plot that pulls you in. This was a fairy tale retelling based on a combination of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses", "Little Red Riding Hood", & "Robin Hood". The main influence came from "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" with details from "Little Red Riding Hood", & "Robin Hood" thrown in along with the authors own original additions to make a very entertaining story. This was the third book in it's series however I have not read either of the previous two and had no problem understanding and enjoying this one although I am sure reading the other two would add to and give a fuller understanding to this one. I loved reading about how Petunia and Oliver met and watching how their relationship grew throughout this book and also enjoyed seeing how Petunia and her sisters interacted with one another. I am definitely planning on reading the first two books in this series as well as other books by this author.

Not a very strong ending to the series, but a good read, all in all. Petunia has never been one of my fave sisters, so the first two books in the series are better. READ THOSE FIRST!! Otherwise, hats off to the author. This is one of my fave series.

I didn't really like this book as much as the other two in the series.

Not really a retelling of either Red Riding Hood or Robin Hood, just like more of a continuation of the first book and the Twelve Dancing Princesses Story.

Make sure you read the other two books or this will not make any sense!

I must say it was a wonderful read. I have not found such good modern day literature as the easy and involing style that Jessica George writes in. I loved the spin off of red riding hood. And all of her books usually bring a smile to my face. She has a way of bringing an over told over used fairy tale back to life in a refreshing, inviting way.
