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.

tl:dr | ✭✭✩✩✩ | I didn’t really like this book. Its supernatural, and outside of the opening prologue, it tries to shy away as much as possible from the supernatural until the last minute. I didn’t really care for the characters or their development. I only really liked the bits where she was dancin...
Well this turned out to be nothing like I thought. I was sort of expecting a YA version of 'Black Swan' with this one, but it was nothing at all like Black Swan.I liked it a lot, all the same. Started off interestingly enough, though was a little on the slow side, but I liked reading about Vanessa a...
