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.
How I discovered/acquired this book?: A. G. Howard’s Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
What I Loved about this story: I loved this book with every twist and turn it was exciting. I felt every emotion Rune and Thorn had being from a Dual P.O.V was great seeing their pasted and how they live their lives in the present.
What I disliked about this book: The only thing I really disliked was that I felt like the beginning was a little slow and I was confused most of the beginning. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it even as I was confused but I felt as if it could have been explained a little better.
Characters: I enjoyed all of the character’s and while there was a few that I just didn’t connect to at all, I felt as if they were all fleshed out fairly well.
Plot: I loved the plot to this story, it was really original having never heard of a Retelling of The Phantom of the Opera so this story was really refreshing. There were twist’s and turns that I NEVER expected so it was exciting and kept me on the edge until the very end.
Check out Authors other books: This is an insta buy Author for me. I Loved her Splintered series so much I bugged my mother until she finally picked it up as well (She’s already on book two having read the first two novella’s in Untamed.)
Overall feelings on the book: This book is brilliant I felt as though I was on this journey with Rune I really need more.
