The traditional stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood are given new twists in this clever adaptation when Petunia, the youngest of the twelve dancing princesses, embarks on a precarious journey to visit an elderly friend in another country.

My least favourite of the series because I couldn't get into the characters of Petunia and Oliver. The story started off quite rushed, I found, and the characters were all over the place. I cared more about Galen and Rose in this book, even though they weren't the main characters. Still, I would definitely say read it if you've read the other ones because it ties up everything nicely at the end.

this book sounds interesting i love georges work. she is one of my fave authors

Fairy tail retellings are some of my favorites to read, and George always does a fabulous job of it! Loved Petunia as the main character. Also loved how strong she has grown up to be. Great read overall!

A fairly good book, I enjoyed reading it. Mostly I enjoy twists on fairy tales, especially when the girl is a strong character. Though I was most excited about what was at the end of the book...

Amazing!!! Petunia was not really a major character in the previous books so I'm glad that Jessica wrote a book about her. Just like all her books Princess of the Silver Woods was wonderful!! It was interesting and captivating and the characters were awesome as usual. I'm sad that this is the last book in the trilogy but I hope she will decide to continue the story of the 12 princesses.

The third book in the trilogy (beginning with Princess of the Midnight Ball), follows the youngest of the twelve dancing princesses as she has adventures all her own. While George riffs on Little Red Riding Hood in the novel, this is not a strict re-telling of that tale but instead a continuation of the larger narrative begun in the first novel. I enjoyed Petunia as a character with her strength of character and different perspective on the curse she and her sisters suffered from when she was much younger. Oliver, the alternate perspective in the novel, is also quite charming. There were some small flaws in the narrative (characters knowing things they shouldn't, etc.) that a good editor should have caught that bumped this down a rating. Otherwise, an excellent conclusion to the trilogy.

Yesss! I love this author, and I am so happy that she is writing more. I have read her books multiple times (odd, I know) but it's sad to hear that this is the last in the set...

Awesome! THe series is continuing? Totally love this series!! :)

I was waiting for this book and not disappointed! The pages flew, and I was finished really fast. It's a great story, and though it is probably the last in the set, I can't help hoping there'll be more.
