USA Today bestselling author Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish. She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below. Sensationalist spin? No – Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all. Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

Narrator Bio Voice Arts Award Nominee, Mary Sarah has garnered attention for her powerfully evocative, multi-character work which spans time and place. With a penchant for dialects and love of culture, Sarah has spanned the globe working with rich characters set across genres of the classics, historical fiction, medieval romance, poetry, fantasy, non-fiction and children’s literature. Relz Reviewz states in reference to Tamara Leigh’s ‘The Unveiling,“ her mellifluous tones, superb voicing of emotions in dialogue and varied and accurate accents of both male and female make her a pure joy to listen to,” while her narration of “A Lady in the Smoke,” was cited as, “masterly!” Classically trained at The Riverside Shakespeare Academy and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Sarah loves to get to the heart of words in order to release their power and finds great comfort in the beauty of stories to transform and speak to us.! Sarah loves the power of story telling to awaken our hearts. Says author Claudy Conn (Lady X), “Her acting is simply sublime.”

  This is one of the most unique fairytales and it always leads to dark and interesting retellings. Before this past year or so I hardly ever saw anything relating to the Twelve Dancing Princesses, but all of a sudden it seemed to be one of the more popular stories to retell. And I’m honestly not complaining, I’d much rather read a retelling of this one than (*gasp, I know*) Beauty and the Beast.

I really enjoyed this version of the story, however I’d say it falls in the middle of my favorites for this series of retellings. I really enjoyed it, but there have been a couple others I loved a little bit more. You know? Bt that doesn’t mean that this story doesn’t deserve all of the praise! I mean, just the fact that it’s a retelling of a lesser known fairytale means it should be shouted about.

I really love these books as audiobooks and honestly don’t know if I would like them nearly as much if I had simply just read them. There’s something just so relaxing about being read a dark and twisted fairytale retelling. So, if you’re going to give these a go I definitely recommend the audiobook route!
