Book Description

Although it's a closely guarded secret, Tori Moss has been marked for death. When her parents unwittingly defy a prohibition set down by the elite demon hunting organization known as the Shakespearean Institute, they flee England and go into hiding. After they die in a horrific accident several years later, Tori pours herself into ballet. A devastating audition threatens to put an end to her dreams, and she goes into an emotional tailspin. Strangely enough, it's the intriguing new guy in school who catches her as she falls. Although Tori and Raven seem to be nothing alike, they share an uncommon ability to see the sudden flood of demons pouring into Los Angeles. When she learns she's at the center of a plot to bring about the Apocalypse, she must decide whom to trust. One wrong step will mean the end of the world.

Living with her guardian since the untimely death of her parents, Tori is preparing to audition for a summer position with a prestigious ballet company. Disappointment strikes, and Tori is further irritated by the arrival of a hot new British student at her performing arts high school. However, Tori discovers that she and Raven have something in common -- they both see creatures that are not visible to other people. As Raven and Tori try to forge a friendship, Tori has difficulty discerning friend from foe. Close friends, hostile enemies and new acquaintances -- both human and not -- who can she trust? The answer is surprising, and the action exciting as Tori and Raven join forces to combat evil. With an unexpected ending, this reader can't wait for the next book in the series!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to discover that everything you thought you knew about yourself was actually a lie? And what if the truth revealed that you were at the center of a plot to bring about the Apocalypse? This is exactly what Tori Moss has to face and it makes the disappointment of a dance audition seem insignificant by comparison. The audition had been devastating, as a famous ballet director tells her, “You’re a moose. In the corps, your height would draw too much focus. As a soloist, we have no one tall enough to partner you. . . you’re far too big to be a ballerina. Classical ballet is not in your future.” All her dreams are shattered, but then, as the truth of her life unfolds, she discovers things that are much worse, not only for her, but for the entire planet.

Dancing with Raven is an action-packed, thrilling story with great characters. I liked Tori a lot and really felt for her pain and her angst as her world is up-ended. She has no idea who to trust, and those who she thought she could trust turn on her as those she distrusted turn out to be allies. Tori’s character is well-developed and I found her to be very believable. The plot has one twist after another. Tori meets a young man, Raven, and discovers that they may not have a lot in common, but they both possess the ability to see demons. As they learn to trust each other, the date for the Apocalypse grows ever closer.

This is the first novel in a series called The Young Shakespeareans and it is a thrilling first book. The ending makes it clear that other books will follow, and I can’t wait for the next in the series. But the novel does end at a reasonable stopping point, with many of the mysteries resolved, and the door opening onto the next adventure.

5 STARS

I was left wanting more and I have to wait for next book in The Young Shakespeareans Series. Dancing with Raven mixes dance, theater with demon killing and it totally works. Lots of quotes throughout the book. This is a fantasy, YA, coming of age story and romance. There is a lot of mystery to the story. There is a little bit for everyone with demons fighting and dancing,

I did not want to stop reading. I like the mix of characters. Lots of teenagers, demons and adults all with plenty of drama.

Tori Moss will be turning 18 soon. She does not know that on that date demons plan to sacrifice her and start Apocalypse. Tori goes to art and theater school. She has a bad audition. She lives with her foster mom after her parents accident. Tori has a major secret she can see demons.

Raven wanted to get into The Royal Drama Academy of London but does not make it. His father Ian Cassidy wants him to leave England and help him with a special project now that he is retired from the Shakespeareans Institute. Raven does not want to go to Hollywood.

Tori and Raven have a lot of the same classes but get off to a bad start. Raven thinks Tori is beautiful. They have to dance together in class and make good dance partners.

Felicia and Fletcher Harrington they are very talented, and spoiled. They got into the Academy in London. There Grandfather is the director of the Shakespearean Institute who are demon hunters made up of Nephilim.

The settings are London and Los Angles.

This is the first book in the Young Shakespeareans. I definitely want to see these characters back again.

I was given this ebook to read and in exchange I agreed to give honest review of it and be part of its blog tour.

Tori Moss lives in Los Angeles and is an aspiring ballerina who also happens to see demons. She hasn't told anyone because she doesn't want to be labeled a freak.

Raven is a demon hunter living in London. He's disappointed that he didn't get into The Royal Drama Academy of London. When he finds out Felicia and Fletcher Harrington did, that made his day worse. Felicia recently broke up with Raven and Fletcher is annoying. Later, Raven's father, Ian, announces he's moving to Los Angeles and needs Raven to come with him to help with an assignment.

Raven ends up at Tori's school and they don't get off to the best start. They're in the same drama class and he overhears her mocking him. She apologizes but he still tries to avoid her. Then, his father lets him know why they're really in Los Angeles, and that changes everything.

I've read books by S.G. Rogers before and have loved them and this book didn't disappoint! I loved Tori and Raven! They had some awkward moments and funny exchanges when they were first getting to know each other. They grow to care for each other but there are obstacles in their way.

There are a lot of different characters in this book. At times, it was hard to know who to trust. I was able to figure out some of what would happen but there were still some twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I was surprised at where some of the characters landed in the end. Some things are resolved but others are left up in the air and I'm excited to read the second book asap!!

I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.
