Waiting on Wednesday: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : RoseBlood by A G Howard.   A modern day spin on Phantom of the Opera – oh yes, get in my life.  Not long to wait for this one: January 10th 2017.  

roseblood.jpgIn this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera.

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.

A. G. Howard brings the romantic storytelling that Splintered fans adore to France—and an entirely new world filled with lavish romance and intrigue—in a retelling inspired by a story that has captivated generations. Fans of both the Phantom of the Opera musical and novel, as well as YA retellings such as Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, will devour RoseBlood.

    I really enjoyed her Alice in Wonderland series, and this sounds good too. You don’t run across many Phantom stories so it should be interesting:-)

    Cool, I’ve never read the author’s books, but I’ve seen the ones in her Alice series everywhere because the covers are so striking. This one fits the theme too, and it might be my favorite yet.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The cover is just lovely isn’t it – I can’t deny that it was the main attraction – but then the whole Phantom of the Opera theme – oh yes. I really hope that this one is as good as it looks.
