Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

Title: Dance of Shadows
Author: Yelena Black
Will be published on: December 24th, 2012 (Bloomsbury/Walker Books for Young Readers)
Pages: 304
Synopsis from Goodreads: Curtains up on a deliciously dark new YA trilogy from the creators of Lauren Kate’s Fallen.
Vanessa Adler isn’t so sure she really belongs at the School of American Ballet. But dance runs in her family. It’s been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother and mother were prima ballerinas, and her older sister Margaret was, too. That is, until Margaret mysteriously disappeared from school three years ago. Vanessa is heir to the family’s gift and the only person who can fulfill her sister’s destiny. She has no choice.
But she never could have guessed how dangerous the school is. The infamous choreographer, Josef, isn’t just ruthless with his pupils, he guards a sinister secret, one in which the school’s dancers—prized for their beauty, grace, and discipline—become pawns in a world of dark, deadly demons.
