Blog Tour: Dancing with Death by Andrea Heltsley

Hey guys! And welcome to my tour stop in the Dancing with Death blog tour :) Hope you enjoy reading review and there will also be an international giveaway ( 5 e-copies of Dancing with Death ) at the end of the post. Enjoy and good luck winning!


Murders have plagued the woods in the past, making them a place of fear. Eighteen year old Wendy and her friends become worried when a new string of murders come to their high school. After a horrible car accident, Wendy returns to school, going from wallflower to popular overnight. As the murderer edges closer to Wendy she realizes things are changing. She is afflicted with nightmares that are all too real and she herself is undergoing unnatural changes. Learning the truth about her past, could be the key to saving her future.
My Review:
      Honestly, I started this book not knowing what to expect. I was a bit disappointed to be honest, about half of this book was just really normal - as in reference to the story itself -I was actually beginning to think that this book was just some type of a Contemporary novel or something. Not until the end of the book that I found what made it for me. And so I'm not going to give away any details about the paranormal part of the story because that would spoil the book for you so I will keep at that.

      However, the writing style was just primitive and unprofessional which was really frustrating and took a lot from enjoying this story. And 'Wendy'...... not a good choice for a main character's name, I personally didn't like it. The excessive and unnecessary details, at some point I was able to enjoy it - there was the part towards the end of the book that I enjoyed and so the details helped me visualise the whole thing much more - but at sometime it was plain ......

     I didn't warm toward any of the characters actually, I did like Matt at some point, he was sweet but mostly plain epic. Most of the characters and their attitudes had this creepiness and weirdness to them so that kept at distance. And the events of the story were illogically and annoyingly set up together, forcing you to always remember that all of it is just fictional, a book and stings you out of the story. Nonetheless, I really do like the original take that the author has takes on the story, the paranormal idea on which on this story was based on was unique yet I do need more which I believe I can get more in it's sequel so I'm looking forward to it.

    Overall, Dancing with was an okay read. I didn't really enjoy the whole book because it had it's flaws and some really cliched moments but it did have a unique idea that got me interested enough and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. But hey, you have to try it because I can somewhat be a bit picky so you might end up loving it and I have some high expectations about the next book ;)
