Roseblood by A.G. Howard

This is a weekly meme held by Breaking the Spine where you showcase something that you are excited for that is soon to be released. My pick is Roseblood by A.G. Howard (Author of Splintered), a Phantom of the Opera retelling. Now its not coming out until June of next year, but since the cover was just released yesterday I decided to share it.

In this modern day spinoff of Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germaine has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide.

Hoping creative direction will help, 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, a soul-deep romance blossoms. But when Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light, 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. Slated to launch January 2017.

      1. I can’t wait to get my hands on it! There’s not enough at all. I remember scouring the internet for Phantom related books a good few years back and only came up with a small handful that were half decent, so I’m glad to see there’s something new lurking on the horizon! 🙂
