The Phoenix Dance Teen Book The Phoenix Dance
Phoenix Dance battles an illness of her mind and emotions, realizes her dream of becoming shoemaker to the Royal Household, and attempts to discover what magic compels the twelve princesses of Windward to wear out their shoes each night. Based on the fairy tale "The twelve dancing princesses." A journey through madness and mania on the island of Faranor in the kingdom of Windward, twelve princesses dance their shoes to shreds each night. No one knows why. Not the king or queen. 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 Grimm's fairy tale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses with the story of a young woman's inward journey toward an understanding of a scary, unpredictable part of her own nature.
