This week’s Waiting on Wednesday book is:
Title: Dance of Shadows
Author: Yelena Black
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Dancing with someone is an act of trust. Elegant and intimate; you’re close enough to kiss, close enough to feel your partner’s heartbeat. But for Vanessa, dance is deadly – and she must be very careful who she trusts . . .
Vanessa Adler attends an elite ballet school – the same one her older sister, Margaret, attended before she disappeared. Vanessa feels she can never live up to her sister’s shining reputation. But Vanessa, with her glorious red hair and fair skin, has a kind of power when she dances – she loses herself in the music, breathes different air, and the world around her turns to flames . . .
Soon she attracts the attention of three men: gorgeous Zep, mysterious Justin, and the great, enigmatic choreographer Josef Zhalkovsky. When Josef asks Vanessa to dance the lead in the Firebird, she has little idea of the danger that lies ahead – and the burning forces about to be unleashed . . .
I want to read this because of the cover. It’s what first drew me to read more about the book. The story itself sounds very intriguing and I’m so glad that I already have the book, so that I’ll be able to read it much earlier that I thought I would be able to. I’m hoping it will be as good as it sounds.
