I loved the first book in this series , where we discovered that Vanessa had been used as a portal for a demon and that the dance she had been participating in "The Firebird" was in fact a demon summoning, it really drew the reader in and so I had high hopes for Book #2 but I felt let down as this book takes us to London, where we discover that Margaret - Vanessa's older sister went to as throughout the book are pages from Margaret's diary dated two years ago. We learn that she too discovered about the demon but instead of being strong like her sister Vanessa, Margaret took the cowards way out and ran for her life and started fresh as if she was in the witness protection programme. With Vanessa in London, she has the cover story of participating in a worldwide Ballet competition but in fact she is helping to stop the demon once again as it has made it's way across the ocean to London. This was a lot slower moving than the first book and I would have loved to see a lot more of Margaret and maybe a more stronger reunion between the two sisters. I felt like Dance of Fire had a lot more back and fro'ing between the scenes and parts were a bit disjointed. Overall though , this book did show readers what the ballet competitions are like at a high level and if you are reading this book due to your love of Ballet, then it will be a book that you will enjoy . However if you are reading it as you loved Dance of Shadows and expecting another powerful punch of a read, then readers do not get your expectations up too high as that's one thing I find as a reader is often we read something amazing or hear about a new book and people raving about it and we go in full blast with high expectations and then when it doesn't meet those, we are left feeling a little deflated and let down. Therefore readers, enter with the idea in mind that this was simply a lovely ballet novel and not a roaring demon filled book.
