Book Review: Adagio

Adagio (The Company, Book 1) by Delancey Stewart: The world of professional ballet is built on illusion. The illusion of perfection. The illusion of effortless beauty. The illusion of eternal love.

But backstage, few members of the Union Ballet Company suffer from such illusions.

Anna Glaser has dreamed of nothing but dancing professionally her entire life. And when she’s finally offered a position with Union, she takes it, giving little more than a passing thought to what she might have to give up in exchange. But Sebastian Kaplan, the director who gave her the chance, won’t forget so easily.

When Anna meets Cain, who has been dubbed by the local media as Union’s most eligible bachelor, she realizes that making a deal with the devil might mean that Heaven -- in the form of a gorgeous dark-haired man -- is forever out of her reach.

Dancers at Union know that something that glitters and shines under the stage lights can still be vicious and evil when the lights go down.

Adagio is the first episode in the series The Company – an engaging drama-filled ride through the darker parts of the ballet and the lives of those who live to dance.

Toni's thoughts: This has been one of the hardest reviews I have ever written. There is nothing bad about this book at all but I didn't find anything really exceptional about it, either. I did like the characters and the plot -- it just felt like it was missing any depth to me. I really did like the premise of the book and the behind the scenes look at the dancing community I just felt like it was kind of lacking. The book was very well written and would suggest others try it out since maybe I just didn't connect with the book.
