    Summary

    Passing a test might mean speaking diamonds, or finding a treasure, or an enchanted hat. Failing one might mean speaking toads, or chopping your own leg, or losing a treasure.

    Giving tests... giving tests means a lot more than that. Morlana has known that for a long time. But she still didn't expect her intended saviour for the kingdom to pass her test, refuse her reward, and run away.

    And someone still has to find out where the princesses are going every night.

    Summary

    The Barry sisters are the toast of the Starlight Ballroom. Pure, sweet, good and wholesome, they're everything that's right with the embattled American spirit. And they've danced for nearly six months non-stop in the hope of winning a fat prize to save their mother's dust-ravaged farm.

    But could their purity be a put-on? Their values a self-righteous sham? Or is it the contest itself that's a warped lie?

    Only one of the sisters holds the truth-bearing key, but she'll fight tooth-and-nail to keep her sisters safe until the glitter and lies come crashing down in a heap of crime and recrimination.

    Summary

    There were twelve princesses once, who so frightened their father by destroying their shoes, that he offered princes a kingdom for the secret and death for failing to learn the truth of them.

    Quite simply they danced every night. It wasn't the end when the truth came out. Not for any of the princesses.

    Nissa Premiere was the eldest, and most stubborn of them all. She was the one who drugged the princes.
    Iya Secunda was next. Never to be the first.
    Siva Terce loved music once. After, to hear was to scream.
    Tammuz Forte was chained to a wall below the earth. She grew strong there.
    Ave Quintilla heard her mother's call to the river.
    Elu Sextilla slipped away with her lover.
    Tishrei Kore ran away the day of her sister's wedding.
    Chesheva Edel felt the scales fall from her eyes and saw the truth.
    Kisle Danielle fell into a dream.
    Teve Esther realized that she lived a very odd life.
    Sheva Heure believed in eleventh hour rescues.
    And Adara Nocte, the youngest, that one had far to go.
