Blog Tour: Black Adagio by @WPotocki - #review

Paranormal Suspense

Date Published: December 14, 2013

Melissa Solange is presented the chance of a lifetime. Chosen as a member of a new dance company, she works tirelessly perfecting the one element of ballet she's never mastered—the adagio. As she rehearses, a dark force watches. Resurrected by the surprise addition of a classic ballet to the repertoire, the sinister work is thought to be cursed—destroying anyone who attempts to dance it. When the production's lead dancers begin to disappear, the old warning is taken more seriously. A death worshipping cult called The Innocents is blamed, but she is not so sure. They may be the scapegoat for an ultimate evil living in the woods of Holybrook. Desperate for an answer, she searches for what lurks in the shadows of the old trees before she becomes the next victim of the Danse Macabre.


First things first, can I just comment on the book cover? I will admit I judge a book on its cover and this cover is absolutely beautiful. Going in that automatically made high expectations and I was pleasantly surprised by how Wendy Potocki met them.

I read a little bit of everything and I will admit I like a little Paranormal with my suspense stories. This was the perfect balance of Dark Paranormal with a great mystery and plenty of suspense to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Is it a Horror that will leave you with nightmares? No. But I really felt that it had a good amount of dark elements. 

Being that I am a fan of authors who manage to throw something at me that I in no way was expecting, I think Wendy Potocki really hit this out of the park. I was completely flabbergasted by the ending. 

I think that this is definitely a great read for the Genre. If you are a fan of Romance, there is a tiny bit of it in this one, but this is in no way a Paranormal Romance. Fan of Suspense/Thriller or Dark Paranormal? This is definitely for you!

Wendy Potocki lives and writes in NYC. If that isn't scary enough, she writes in the genre of horror. She feels creating good horror is an art form. She religiously devotes herself to pursuing it over hill and dale -- and in the crevices of her keyboard.
Named one of the Top Ten "New" Horror Authors by Horror Novel Reviews, she has seven self-published novels. Book trailers for many of her works may be found on her official website http://www.wendypotocki.com/. Her newest frightmare is Thrill. It’s a non-stop chillfest and has been attracting a lot of attention. Her next planned projects are The Witch's Stone, The Virgin, and ZaSo, a Gothic tale of horror.

In her spare time, she loves to go for long walks, drink Starbucks Apple Chai Lattes, make devotional offerings to her cat named Persephone and be stilled by the grace, beauty and magic of ballet.
