Book Review: Roseblood by A.G. Howard

Summary: Rune Germain is shipped off to a French boarding school where she realizes that the The Phantom of the Opera is not just a story, and that she has inherited a curse that makes her the Phantom’s long awaited target. 

Thoughts: DNF less than eighty pages from the ending. I was really excited for this book, and so sure that I’d love it but I just couldn’t get into it. The main character had a very weak personality, which made her narration so hard to get into therefore making the entire story read meh. There were some beautiful sentences and descriptions in the book but the MC’s voice made it so difficult to focus or feel their importance. Sentences were packed with more adjectives than was necessary, making it hard to follow those sentences. And the other MC in the story – Thorn, the Phantom’s apprentice and Rune’s instant love interest – his narration was more focused than hers but packed with so much backstory that by the point the backstory was finished, you couldn’t remember where he was at or what he was doing once he started reminiscing. I’m so bummed I couldn’t enjoy this book, and because I didn’t finish it, I can’t rate it.

Stars: DNF
