Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Hey guys! It is that time of the week again to showcase books that we are waiting for. This weeks book comes from an author who I adore! I loved her Splintered series and I cannot wait for this new book!
Expected publication: January 10th 2017
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.
That’s it! As I mentioned, I am a huge fan of the Splintered series, so if this book is anything as good as that one… well, I am in for a fun time!! Plus, that cover is to die for!
What books are you waiting for? Feel free to leave links and I will check them all out!
