From the national bestselling author of the Lily Wong thriller series
comes a "stunningly original" (F. Paul Wilson) dark journey into Brazilian mysticism about a desperate mother who rises from the slums to embrace Quimbanda magic amid her quest for the ultimate revenge.

Across forty years, three continents, and a past incident in 1560 France, Serafina Olegario tests the boundaries of love, power, and corruption as she fights to escape her life of poverty and abuse. Serafina's quest begins in Brazil when she's possessed by the warrior goddess Yansã, who emboldens her to fight yet threatens to consume her spirit. Fueled by power and enticed by Exú, an immortal trickster and intermediary to the gods, Serafina turns to the seductive magic of Quimbanda. It's dangerous to dance in the fire. But when you come from nothing, you have nothing to lose.

Praise for this book

"The cost of justice is high in DANCE AMONG THE FLAMES, born in the fire of Tori Eldridge's radiant imagination.

"Beautiful, gripping read! The storyline of Tori Eldridge's DANCE AMONG THE FLAMES is so incredibly strong, the voice so unique and clear, the character development so rich, that I did not want to put this book down... or end.
