GIVEAWAY: Proof copy Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

Hey everyone! Remember my review that I posted a few days ago? Well, today I have a giveaway of that book for you! If you haven't read my review yet, you can view it here. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I would love to discuss its brilliance with even more people.

Here is the synopsis (taken from Goodreads):

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 . . .

Even if you don't like the sound of it... ENTER FOR THE OH SO GORGEOUS COVER!

To get a sneak peak, you can read the first three chapters FREE on Amazon here.
