The Devil's Opera by Adrian Scott @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #horror

Orphaned at a young age, Oliviér is adopted by Enrico di Muncio, a duke and patron of his mother, once a famous opera star. The Duke of Milan immediately recognizes the boy's musical talent and the premier performance of Il Maestro di Hades takes place the night of the boy’s tenth birthday, in the Viennese Opera House.

But, as often happens, with genius comes a certain madness, and Oliviér did appear to be quite different from other boys. Would the talent overcome the madness as he ages, or should the world this genius inhabits be very afraid?
