From the Review Pile (30)

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

This week, I'm going to showcase Dance of Shadows!

This book is released in February next year, so although I'm desperate to read it, I'd like to read it closer to the release date. This book looks phenomenal and I love all of the publicity surrounding it, especially on the Dance of Shadows facebook page! I can't post this without mentioning the stunning cover either - isn't it gorgeous!?

Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

Hardback, 447 pages
Published 12th February 2013 by Bloomsbury

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 Josh, 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 . . .


  1. I hadn't heard of this one before but it sounds really cool! Not a dancer, but that stuff intrigues me!

  2. I have this on my tbr too, really need to get round to it!

  3. I'm waiting to read this a little closer to release too, but I'm looking forward to it!

  4. I'm not such a fan of books about dancing, but this one sounds really good! :)



Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone - Whilst I appreciate the thought, I simply don't have the time to pass them on.

Please feel free to leave a reply, I read and appreciate them all!
