This review is short and not-so-sweet. I really, really wanted to like this one as I think the concept of a paranormal ballerina is brilliant. The ballet world is so magical and other-wordly that it seemed like a perfect backdrop for a chilling, mysterious tale.Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

Vanessa knew that dance was in her blood, but she had no idea the world of elite ballet was center stage for the darkest of secrets—until her sister mysteriously disappeared from the world-renowned New York Ballet Academy. Three years later, Vanessa follows in Margaret's footsteps, lands the role most girls at NYBA would kill for . . . and gets trapped in a sinister spiral of secrets.
Back-stabbing bunheads, a fiercely unrelenting choreographer, and the sexy male lead of the troupe—they all want something from Vanessa. And though she revels in the attention, what Vanessa truly craves are answers. Instead, she feels as though she is losing her footing at every turn. Is she doomed to relive her sister's strange fate?
Riveting and sexy, Dance of Shadows twists the cutthroat world of ballet with a psychological thriller, in a dance you won't be able to resist.
The ballet world and the demon myths worked well together. However the characters were one dimensional and I don’t know one thing about the mc apart from her missing sister and her relationship with ballet. This made it hard to engage and even harder to care about what happened her. Add in a pretty flat romance and this book fell flat on its head for me.
And I don’t really have much more to say which is another sign of how little I cared for this book.
