Dancing with Raven by S.G. Rogers (The Young Shakespeareans Series #1) $25 Amazon gift card or Paypal cash
Tori Moss is no stranger to heartbreak. Raised by a foster mother since the deaths of her parents in a horrific accident, she’s poured herself into ballet. A disappointing audition sends her into an emotional tailspin, but it’s the strangely 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 discovers a plot to bring about the Apocalypse, Tori must decide whom to trust. One wrong step may cost her everything.

Currently residing in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, S.G. Rogers writes historical romance, fantasy, and romantic fantasy stories. She’s owned by two hairless cats, Houdini and Nikita, and lives on an island populated by exotic birds, deer and the occasional gator. Tab is her beverage of choice, but when she imbibes, a cranberry vodka martini doesn’t go amiss.
My review: Dancing with Raven by S.G. Rogers
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.
A half-block later, she came across a store —The Mime’s Eye —which was dedicated to new age paraphernalia. In the window display hung several charms, talismans, crystals, and amulets. I’ll wait inside until the demons pass. Her heart was pounding as she darted inside and pressed herself flat against the wall next to the window. When the three demons appeared, Tori held her breath.
“Can I help you?”
Startled, Tori flinched. The African robe-clad shop owner gave her a kindly smile. “Sorry if I frightened you, but you can relax. They won’t come in here.”
“A special rune is painted over the doorway. No demons can enter.”
“Y-You see them?”
“Certainly.” He tilted his head as he regarded her. “How long have you had the sight?”
“My whole life.” Tori craned her neck toward the window, but the unholy trio had disappeared. She took a deep breath. “I’ve been seeing more and more demons lately.”
“I’ve noticed an increase as well.” He leaned forward, as if to impart a secret. “Most people don’t realize what’s really happening.”
“The eternal war between good and evil is heating up.”
