Azalea had a royal life at the palace with her other 11 younger sisters filled with balls, suitors, and most importantly, dancing. But when her mother passes away, all is taken away as the king, her father, announces that they will be in mourning for their queen and mother. The strained relationship between the princesses and the king becomes as tense as ever, and when they discover a secret passageway in their bedrooms, they go through it and discover a whole new world that is awfully similar to their previous lifestyle.

I had abandoned this book because it had included too much romance in the beginning of the book. I am not a fan of romance, so I had abandoned the book. Also, I already knew the story of the Minotaur before I had read this book, so the major events that happened were already predictable, I already knew that it would happen. Another factor in why I am not reading the book anymore is because I had prematurely returned the book back to the library, half by mistake and the other half with intention.
