Rune, whose voice has been compared to that of an angel, has a mysterious affliction linked to her talent that leaves her sick and drained at the end of every performance. Convinced creative direction will cure her, her mother ships her off to a French boarding school for the arts, rumored to have a haunted past. Shortly after arriving at RoseBlood conservatory, Rune starts to believe something otherworldly is indeed afoot. The mystery boy she's seen frequenting the graveyard beside the opera house doesn't have any classes at the school, and vanishes almost as quickly as he appears. When Rune begins to develop a secret friendship with the elusive Thorn, who dresses in clothing straight out of the 19th century, she realizes that in his presence she feels cured. Thorn may be falling for Rune, but the phantom haunting RoseBlood wants her for a very specific and dangerous purpose. As their love continues to grow, Thorn is faced with an impossible choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or save her and face the wrath of the phantom, the only father he's ever known.

There were so many things I liked about this but it's hard to do the Phantom justice. Did I still race through the pages? Absolutely.

The Deal Breaker:
As a reader, I am only willing to suspend my disbelief so far. You can't just make the Phantom an owner of a club that hosts rave parties, throw in some physic vampires to the mix and call it a day. It was too far-fetched. Had the author made this book into a duology, given the readers more information, then maybe, JUST MAYBE I would have been okay with the aforementioned. But she didn't, and alas, I mentally checked out after learning the Phantom owned a goddamn club.

It was not well executed and it does not do justice to The Phantom of the Opera

I have mixed feelings about this. I haven't read or seen Phantom of the Opera yet, so I wasn't sure if it would affect how I feel. I love retellings and when I saw the blurb and the cover, I couldn't wait to read it. There were parts I liked and parts I didn't. I liked the idea of the story but I had a hard time liking Rune...

Are you a "Twihard" and/or a "Phanatic"? Then you'll enjoy this update of "The Phantom of the Opera" set in a French high school.
