The heroine, Octavia Voss is a soprano who lives for her music. If you enjoy opera and the behind the scenes details of rehearsals and staging of an opera, this story is for you. I actually thought it was a bit too much detail with Octavia and her singing in the beginning, but soon the story catches up to the necessary backstory and it takes off on a swift pace that will have you turning pages faster and faster as the mystery behind what, exactly, Mozart's blood means, is slowly revealed.
Octavia's assistant, Ugo, is the most interesting. I won't reveal what he is. The reader learns that quickly, but how he exists, and the necessary things he must do to survive are very interesting. He is devoted to Octavia, and I can't help but wish that this is only the beginning in a series that features the twosome.
There is a mystery, some thrills, a chase and delightful historical vignettes that fill in pieces of the main characters' lives in a style I really enjoyed. All in all, I'd recommend this to readers who enjoy a nice meaty historical novel (though it does move back and forth from history to modern-day). This isn't exactly a romance, but romance readers may admire the devotion between the twosome all the same. This book is out right now, so go check it out!
