100 Words: Princess of the Midnight Ball

Cursed, Princess Rose and her eleven sisters secretly attend the Midnight Ball. Galen, a recently returned young soldier armed with an invisibility cloak and pure cunning, is their last hope to break the spell. With three nights to uncover their secret, the mystery may plunge the kingdom back into war!

While the large cast endures little character development, Galen is a clever, easy to root for hero. This delightful, light retelling of ‘The Twelve Dancing Princesses’ fairytale benefits from unique expansions and explorations.

Knitting fans will also enjoy a bonus feature in the back: two plot-inspired patterns! A clever touch.
