Official Summary: “Ella’s no stranger to sacrifice. Pursuing a professional career in ballet demands that she risk everything, including remaining in war-torn London to continue her training. Dancing has always been her singular desire, until reserved American Jesse Cohen transfers to her school. When partnered in a production of Giselle, Ella glimpses a new side of Jesse and works to break through his defenses. Their tentative friendship blossoms into romance, but happiness is not theirs to keep.” – Goodreads (Blurb is much much longer)
Review: The romance at the start wasn’t that bad, I was expecting it to be really cheesy. It wasn’t, which is great for a person who not all that into the romance side of things.
The fantasy and world building were so great. It was a nice change going from WWII, ballet to then this whole new world. The way the magic was done wasn’t overall different or unique but it wasn’t in your face confusing either. It was the right amount. I just loved how Jesse and Wren got along, how Wren was pretty badass for the era she was from.
