A. G. Howard returns with a creepy, clever novel that will thrill readers. Rune has a mysterious affliction that’s linked to her musical talent. Her mother believes creative direction will help, so she sends Rune to a French arts conservatory rumored to have inspired The Phantom of the Opera. When Rune begins to develop a friendship with the elusive Thorn, she realizes that with him, she feels cured. But as their love grows, Thorn is faced with an impossible choice: save Rune or protect the phantom haunting RoseBlood, the only father he’s ever known.

Fans of Daughter of Smoke & Bone and the Splintered series will adore this retelling of one of the most famous stories of all time.

The Deal Breaker:
As a reader, I am only willing to suspend my disbelief so far. You can't just make the Phantom an owner of a club that hosts rave parties, throw in some physic vampires to the mix and call it a day. It was too far-fetched. Had the author made this book into a duology, given the readers more information, then maybe, JUST MAYBE I would have been okay with the aforementioned. But she didn't, and alas, I mentally checked out after learning the Phantom owned a goddamn club.

It was not well executed and it does not do justice to The Phantom of the Opera

I have mixed feelings about this. I haven't read or seen Phantom of the Opera yet, so I wasn't sure if it would affect how I feel. I love retellings and when I saw the blurb and the cover, I couldn't wait to read it. There were parts I liked and parts I didn't. I liked the idea of the story but I had a hard time liking Rune...

Are you a "Twihard" and/or a "Phanatic"? Then you'll enjoy this update of "The Phantom of the Opera" set in a French high school.
