Juliet Marillier’s historical fantasy novels for adult readers are published internationally and have won a number of awards. In her popular Sevenwaters Trilogy, Daughter of the Forest received the Alex Award for Best Adult Novel for Teens from the American Library Association, and Son of the Shadows was honored with the Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Wildwood Dancing is Juliet’s first novel for young adult readers, and was inspired by the beloved fairy tale “The Twelve Dancing Princesses.” Some of the same characters appear in Cybele’s Secret, also available on audio from Listening Library. Juliet lives in a hundred-year- cottage by the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. She shares her house with a kelpie cross, a miniature pinscher, and a tricolored cat.

But their peace is shattered when Father falls ill and must go to the southern parts to recover, for that is when cousin Cezar arrives. Though he's there to help the girls survive the brutal winter, Jena suspects he has darker motives in store. Meanwhile, Jena's sister has fallen in love with a dangerous creature of the Other Kingdom--an impossible union it's up to Jena to stop.
When Cezar's grip of power begins to tighten, at stake is everything Jena loves: her home, her family, and the Other Kingdom she has come to cherish. To save her world, Jena will be tested in ways she can't imagine--tests of trust, strength, and true love.
