Waiting on Wednesday: September 14th


I want to have this book in my hands like, ten years ago. However, it is not because she is an auto-buy author for me or anything. I have never read A.G. Howard's Splintered series--the series she is most known for. But I have a very solid reason: I don't like Alice in Wonderland. I'M SORRY, OKAY?! I just don't. But there is this large following for the Lewis Carrol's adventures, and I kind of don't understand it.

Anyway, this book sounds AMAZING. And Stacee, a blogger I follow religiously, said she loved it. So yeah. I NEED TO READ IT. It's a Phantom of the Opera retelling, and it sounds swoony and spooky, and I am all for that.

In 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.
