This is the best rendition of the 12 dancing princesses fairy tale I've read. It's very suspenseful and the storytelling is beautiful. In this case, there's 11 princesses and 1 prince. They are promised to 12 fairies in fairy land and fall love in with them. Mateo thinks it's not true love, just a mind manipulation by the fairies and some powerful magic in fairy food that forces humans to return to fairy land. Ópalo wants to win Mateo's heart without using fairy food but Mateo is skeptical of fairy love.
Mateo really questions about love and how one knows it when everyone tells him his pairing with Ópalo is meant to be. This sounds simple but the human mind always questions itself and everything about it. Even I am doubtful of his sisters' words of love when they unknowingly ate fairy food that forces them to return to fairy land. Mateo's distrust of his and Ópalo's love and their hearts leads to unfortunate events and causalities.
What is love without sacrifice? Ópalo's sacrifice makes the romance and journey more powerful. Through winning Mateo's heart, Ópalo also finds the true meaning and enjoyment of love.
I love these two MCs and how they are so strong and brave to allow each other the freedom to love and to question love. The book describes their relationship and Ópalo's unwavering trust in Mateo and Mateo's doubt in their love perfectly.
Overall, this is a suspenseful read with a great romance and interesting characters. This is a must read for fairy tale lovers and those that like a hero struggling to get his love returned.
