Review of Midnight Masquerade by Marcia Lynn McClure on Mom Loves 2 Read

midnight mas Midnight Masquerade
Stavos Voronin was not as blind-eyed as many nobles and royals. Evony’s physical gestures—even the simplest movement of her hands—revealed that she had not always been destitute. The same was true of the children—of their polished manners and the boy’s knowledge of horses and tendency to be bold and fearless of strangers. Ah yes, Stavos enjoyed a good mystery. After all, interest in the inexplicable circumstances surrounding the royals of Abawyth was the very thing that had lured him to the kingdom—the enigma of Abawyth’s twelve sleepy princesses. And yet now—now his mind was all the more intrigued. Not only was the obscurity of what had caused the profound and baffling torpidity of Abawyth’s princesses laid out before him, but also he found his curiosity intensely piqued over the riddle surrounding the very lovely Evony and her siblings. As Stavos strode through the village resting on the outskirts of Abawyth Castle, his mind reeled with possibilities. His musings were drawn back to why he had come to Abawyth at all—to solve the conundrum surrounding the twelve beautiful princesses of Abawyth kingdom—to solve the seemingly impenetrable crux and thereby win the hand of one of Abawyth’s princesses, as his father, King Letholdus of Ethiarien, had commanded.

My Review:
I decided to sign up for this book tour due to the blurb about the book.  It sounded like a fun book to read.  I love remakes of classic Fairy Tales and this one did not disappoint.  I loved this re-do of the 12 Dancing Princesses story and especially loved the "prince" in this version.  The princess and her siblings in hiding was a wonderful way to capture a reader's attention, especially this reader!  I love the whole story, the adventure and mystery and the budding romance that is not supposed to be.  What a wonderful imagination this author has!  
This is one Fairy Tale that has definitely taken a detour from the Disney version and had a much appreciated upgrade to YA fantasy fiction.  I definitely recommend this for ages 15 and up and for any fairy tale, YA, fantasy lover or anyone who enjoys a book that can grab the readers' attention from beginning to end! 
Author Marcia Lynn McClure does it again with another masterpiece of fiction!
