Music of the Night (Tower Knights #1) by Angela J. Ford

MUSIC OF THE NIGHT

ABOUT THE BOOK

A haunted tower, a mysterious instructor and the lure of the music of the night…

After the death of her father, Aria is left penniless and destitute. To avoid working the streets she becomes the ward of a Count and moves to a remote town called High Tower.

High Tower is a gloomy place with one vivid attraction: the theater. Lords and ladies come from afar to be seduced by a night of unforgettable entertainment.

Many are warned to stay away from High Tower’s dangerous enchantments, but it’s a warning Aria is forced to ignore. Determined to take her life back into her hands, she and the Count make a deal. She can avoid an arranged marriage if she learns to sing for him.

When Aria stumbles across a mysterious man in a dark tower, she begs to learn the power of song from him. Although reluctant, the man agrees to teach her the music of the night. Between midnight meetings and emotional singing lessons, Aria falls in love with her alluring instructor despite his shadowy past.

But something deadly stirs, awoken by the desire of its master.

Evenings reveries become haunted with terror, blood and murder. Rumors claim the man in the tower in behind the madness that haunts High Tower, a truth Aria is loathe believe. For she just gained the desire of her heart.

What she doesn’t know is that her haunted instructor intends to use her for his own purposes…

MY REVIEW

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the Music of the Night by Angela J. Ford Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my review and make sure to enter the giveaway!

After her family name is ruined and she is left with no money, Aria is taken to High Tower Castle by Count Zorik who runs a theatre. To repay the Count for his charity, Aria becomes a dancer, but her true passion is to sing. When she is seduced by the sorrowful music coming from the haunted Tower at night, she finds that the ghost she thought lived there, is a mysterious and brooding man wearing a mask. “He has the gift she sought”. His singing magically makes flowers grow so she asks him to train her to enchant an audience with her voice. Unbeknownst to her, she makes a deal with the devil who is destined to ruin her life.

Uriah must find a strong singer to fulfill his mission. “It had been too long; it was time for vengeance”. But Aria wasn’t what he expected. She is fearless and determined and the perfect weapon for revenge. He must keep his emotions out of it, but her kindness and passion are his undoing. He only hoped the magic in the music would not make her go mad.

Aria’s courage and unwavering love for Uriah are commendable even though peril and death point toward him. The mystery of Uriah is stirring and drawn out in very subtle ways which add to the magic and danger of what is to come. The story is fast-paced and engaging with a climactic ending.

I recommend this dark tale of the retelling of The Phantom of the Opera which is filled with music, enchantment, monsters, and passion.

Thank you to Ms. Ford for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
