THE FIRE DANCER (Cirque Macabre, #1) by Kristen Strassel

Adult Dark Fantasy

Designer: Hang Le Designs

Artwork illustrated by: Daoyi Liu




At Le Cirque Macabre, Holly Octane bursts into flames five nights a week. The stage is where Holly feels most alive. When she’s there no one can touch her, and everyone adores her.

Brought to Las Vegas as vampire bait, Holly’s connection to the immortals is a mystery. She’s one of a kind– traveling through time and igniting when her emotions get too hot to handle. The only people who understand her are an aunt with a hidden agenda and her fortune teller girlfriend, Rainey, who doesn’t see a future with Holly in it.

Cash Logan needs Holly, but she’s not the reason he came to Vegas. The enigmatic magician seeks Blade Bennett, a vampire that has a power that he shouldn’t have–fire. A power that could determine the future of all of vampire kind. Holly’s the only one who can help Blade control his fire, but their feelings for each other are too fiery to ignore.

Immortals rule the Vegas night, and not one of them trusts Cash or Blade. If Holly lets them draw her in to this world designed to destroy her, she’ll lose everything—the only family she’s ever known, and everyone who adores her.

Las Vegas is her stage, and Holly is determined to set the city on fire.

*THE FIRE DANCER is a spinoff novel from The Night Songs Collection.

My Thoughts:

I haven’t read all the books in The Night Song Collection, the only one I have read was Silent Night and I absolutely loved it. Being that I don’t real A Lot of vampire books, I wasn’t sure how I would feel, but Kristen Strassel is a fantastic writer that creates an amazing story. The same goes for Fire Dancer, which is a spin off from the Night Song Collection.

This books was full of twist and turns that I never saw coming, I still unsure what was true and what was an illusion and who Holly can really trust. Since the book is solely from the POV of Holly, the reader doesn’t really know what is going on until Holly does.

This is also a very dark world of vampires, another series I read the vampires are helping each other move to a better world. Where these vampires want to dominate and be the best/strongest ones.

I still have plenty of questions that have been unanswered and I cannot wait for the next book to see what happens to Holly and the rest of these interesting characters.
