Expected publication: January 10th 2017
Amulet Books
Hardcover, 464 pages

In this modern day spinoff of 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 know I haven’t shared my love for Phantom of the Opera but let me tell you… I FREAKING HEART PHANTOM OF THE OPERA SOMETHING SERIOUS! The cover of this book is so great and it sounds so freaking amazing. I need it in my vida AHORA! What are you “waiting on”?

  4. I’m curious about this book, but I’m not sure I want to read it! I hated the romance/love triangle in Howard’s first series. Who’s to say that she won’t “ruin” (for me) another book/series with a love triangle?! (Again, ruin *for me*, a hater of love triangles lololol.) I’ll wait to see what others think. I hope you enjoy this one when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. 🙂
