This dark take on the tale of The Twelve Dancing Princesses is deliciously atmospheric. Much like the ocean setting, the book is cruel, unrelenting, and beautiful. It's half frothy ball gowns and half gothic horror in a bitter-sweet mix. I was completely absorbed by the setting and the mystery. Annalise makes an excellent heroine.
