Waiting on Wednesday (13)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

I'm a bit of a copycat this week because I learned about this book through this blog hop a few weeks ago!

Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows, #1)
Goodreads Book Description:  
Vanessa Adler isn’t so sure she really belongs at the School of American Ballet. But dance runs in her family. It’s been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother and mother were prima ballerinas, and her older sister Margaret was, too. That is, until Margaret mysteriously disappeared from school three years ago. Vanessa is heir to the family’s gift and the only person who can fulfill her sister’s destiny. She has no choice.

But she never could have guessed how dangerous the school is. The infamous choreographer, Josef, isn’t just ruthless with his pupils, he guards a sinister secret, one in which the school’s dancers—prized for their beauty, grace, and discipline—become pawns in a world of dark, deadly demons.


Why I Am Excited: Look at this gorgeous cover! OK, I admit, I am susceptible to a nice cover here and there. Also, I LOVE ballet stories and shows. Add paranormal to it? I'm intrigued. Can't wait to see what Black does with this set up.

Why I Am Worried: I hope the ballet is authentic and the paranormal works in seamlessly. It could fall apart if these two aspects of the novel don't work together.

What are you waiting for this week?

  15. This is either a book that turns out really good, or fails completely. I'm really hoping that it will be the first. The combination dance and the supernatural sounds really intriguing, and it feels very fresh.

  22. The fact that this came from the same group as Fallen makes me skeptical, but dark ballet book could be awesome! I'm watching for reviews!
