THE REDPOINT CRUX (June 9th, 2020 from The Parliament House!)
When Megan Van Helsburg gets kicked off the U.S.A. Climbing Team, she has no choice but to return home and leave her climbing career behind. With no coach, no money, and no prospects, she joins the corps de ballet determined to improve her strength and agility.
But the ballet theater is in dire straits. Not only do a series of murders break loose, but the ballerinas are becoming deathly thin and brain-dead. As Megan investigates, she meets Bellamy, a tortured young man who lives beneath the depths of the theater. Megan falls hard and fast for Bellamy, who becomes her mentor, but something is off about him.
It isn't until the company announces they're doing Giselle for the fall performance that Megan realizes the parallels between the ghost story and the lives around her. Megan must find a way to not only save her climbing career, but stop the murders and dying girls before she too, is numbered among the dead.

Pain. Sweat. Blood: The minimum expected to be a member of the corps de ballet for the most prestigious school in New York.
When Rora is accepted to the Summer Intensive at The Conservatory, she suffers more than just blisters from her pointe shoes. Aside from the director publicly showing distaste for her dancing, Rora falls hard and fast for the director's son, Siegfried, who can't keep his hands (or lips) off the other girls in the company.
The Conservatory is renowned for its technique and precision, but something is off with the girls. Not only are their bodies too perfect, but they're burning out too quickly. And something is definitely brewing with Siegfried, who spends his spare time at The Gathering, a club with an underground society of people who look and act like they're historical ballet characters.
It isn't until the company starts rehearsing Swan Lake for the summer showcase that Rora pieces together the similarities between the haunting story and the girls' lives around her. Rora must find a way to stop the girls from dancing to their death before Rora succumbs and becomes a ghost herself.
When a new serial killer targets beautiful women,
creating "art" from the bodies he leaves behind, it's up to Dawn and her medical knowledge to find the murderer. With the help of a handsome new acquaintance and no help from the society that believes she's a witch for practicing medicine, she sets off to find the killer before he can make another "doll" of her best friend.
