This was a beautiful, haunting and, I'll say it, heartwrenching book (GLARES AT THE AUTHOR).

A gender-bending retelling of Phantom of the Opera, the author does some incredible world-building, along with some truly lovely character development. Isda is a flawed character, young and hopeful and a bit sad, too. The phrase "morally ambiguous" comes to mind too - when your gift of magic is abused by a person who you love and claims to love you, well, that might mess a girl up. But when she starts to realize what her power can do, that's where things get really dicey, and her use of her magic almost veers into addiction, with some horrible consequences.

The magic system of Isda's world is a bit tragic and dark, and I was fully invested in Isda's character. It's not often I come into a novel and am rooting for a character other than the main character, but Emeric was a treasure and I loved him. (I also was left with an overwhelming urge to eat buttery caramels. Thanks.) Emeric's character grounded me into the story, let me see the good side, the beauty AND the tragedy of the magic that has marred Isda's life.

This book was spilling over with music, magic, love, deception, and heart-pounding adventure.

This was one of those books I added to my shelf and vaguely remembered the synopsis before I dug in, and it so thoroughly surprised and delighted (and maddened) me, keeping me up into the wee hours of the night before breaking my heart.

I received an advanced copy from Inkyard Press via Netgalley - many thanks. All opinions are my own. ( )

Series Info/Source: I got a copy of this book through NetGalley to review. This seems to be a stand alone book.

Story (4/5): This was beautifully written and has a fascinating premise. This is basically a gender reversed Phantom of the Opera retelling with some twists. In this world a race of people exists that can manipulate memory through song and they are usually killed at birth. Our main protagonist is a young woman who was rescued from this death at birth and raised in a theater. She is trained to use her skill to manipulate the theater goers into loving their theater experience regardless of the actual performance. As things unravel she begins to figure out how to use other powers she has and find out the lies that form her life.

This is absolutely beautifully written, with amazing imagery. The beginning moves a bit slow and this is definitely a story that spends a lot of time discussing the fascination with music. In the end it's more of a love story than anything else.

Characters (4/5): While I really enjoyed Emeric (Isda’s love interest) and his depth of caring, I thought he acted somewhat inconsistently throughout. I had a lot more trouble engaging with Isda’s character; she makes poor decisions and is fairly unlikable. However, that being said I do think she was a good female portrayal of the Phantom from the Phantom of the Opera who is also a kind of evil/sympathetic character. Isda is very grey in tone and while I didn’t really like her, her decisions are fascinating to read about.

Setting (4/5): I liked the idea of a society that runs off of memories and the sales of them. It’s a unique idea and the inclusion of a couple of races of modified humans that can control and pull out memories is intriguing. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see a ton of this world because of Isda’s isolation in the theater.

Writing Style (4/5): The story moved a bit slow for me and some of the decisions Isda makes seemed a bit contrived. In spite of those issues the story is creative and beautifully written, I didn’t have any trouble staying engaging and reading it. This book stands alone well, so it seems like a stand alone to me but there are some unanswered questions too. The ending is kind of a downer and I was left hoping we’d get a follow-up story that would leave our characters in a better place..

My Summary (4/5): Overall I enjoyed this. It’s a very creative premise and is beautifully written with amazing imagery. Parts of it do move slow and the characters were a bit hard to engage with and like. There is a ton of discussion and description of music, so if that’s not your thing you probably won’t enjoy this much. I will definitely be checking out Olson’s future books. ( )
