Fans of A.G.Howard's Splintered series need to fasten their seatbelts and prepare for a rollercoaster of reading, because it's time for you and your bookshelves to enter a whole new era - and this time there's phantoms joining you.

Rune Germaine moves to a boarding school outside of Paris, only to discover that at this opera-house-turned-music-conservatory, phantoms really do exist. 

But before we tell you more about the creepy cool tale of new book Roseblood, how about we take the first UK look at the fancy cover? OOOOH.

RoseBlood is a Phantom of the Opera–inspired retelling in which Rune's biggest talent—her voice—is also her biggest curse. Although her voice has been compared to that of an angel, she's living with 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 - but after arriving at RoseBlood conservatory, Rune starts to believe something otherworldly is indeed afoot.

The mystery boy she's seen frequenting the graveyard vanishes and dresses in clothing straight out of the 19th century, but Rune realises 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.
