I've read quite a few gothics, and this one was superb.
It is told in the first person by the young heroine, Lisette Moore. We follow Lisette's hopes and fears as she attempts to recover from the recent death of her musically talented father by taking on a position at Severon Castle.
Lisette soon discovers the person she has been hired to help is the musically talented, handsome & tormented Damon Severon. She is to be his assistant in composing the music for a play.
The excellent plot, which kept me guessing right up until the mystery was finally revealed, mainly revolves around the beautiful deceased actress Serephine Severon, whose past existance and desires still effects the lives of all who knew her.
The characters are well drawn, vivid and emotional with very individual personalities, which plays into the actions they take
and moves the plot forward smoothly.
