I've not read anything by Juliet Marillier before so I came to this novel with no preconceptions about her work. It declares itself to be a Young Adult novel; I habitually reserve judgement on that because there's no telling what any given author thinks that label means until you start reading. So my only guide is the jacket where it's fortunate I believe one shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Proficient as the intricate artwork is, it does suggest a tweeness that I didn't find in this engaging and intelligent tale.

From official release/information:

Juliet Marrilier offers her first novel specifically aimed towards a younger market. Wildwood Dancing is an "... enchanting YA fantasy fairytale set against a fascinating Transylvanian backdrop from one of the genres most acclaimed writers." and will definitely appear to fans of Marillier's wonderful Sevenwaters Trilogy. A smart hardcover from Tor UK.
