Passionate, sinister and thrilling, this captures both the friendship and the pressure on a group of highly talented young dancers whose lives are at risk from the dark mystery that haunts their school. Vanessa is newly arrived at the New York Ballet School. It is a dream for her but it is also an opportunity for her to try to find out why her even more talented older sister mysteriously disappeared from the same school a few years earlier. Vanessa is swiftly attracted to the highly attractive but dangerous Zeppelin Gray; she is willing to follow him anywhere. Will he give her a dancing opportunity of a lifetime or are his intentions far less honourable?

Synopsis

Dance of Shadows by Yelana Black

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 ...
