    Summary

    In those days, it seemed to Bettrice that her sisters were too tired to dream of anything but mornings. Mornings long and golden and slow, mornings brisk in clear air, mornings quiet and grey. She was not the youngest, but she was young enough to be a little more awake than her older sisters, and when she dreamed, she dreamed of days spread out ahead of her, of nights filled with nothing but dreams.

    A Gothic horror fairytale retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses.

    Summary

    "We were outsiders… ghosts in our own lives. The daily machinations of a Parisian life were the bedsheet under which we’d hide. But in the dark underside layer of this city, it was our privilege — nay, our duty — to be the embers of a prismic flame. A burning of colors, of sounds, and of love. To be lovers of God’s greatest design."

    Christophe Daae is slowly rising to the top after the death of his father. Is it the Vicomtesse de Chagny as his patron, or is it his mysterious tutor and muse the Phantom who is to blame for his rise and fall? Meanwhile, he is plagued by the debts he owes to both his father and Antoine, a man who haunts his past and his dreams. Both are gone, but both conspire to tug at his heart. What is his life's purpose, and how do the Vicomtesse and Erik, the Phantom, fit into his future?
