Hi everyone, welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Architect of Song. I hope you enjoy my review and that it convinces you to read this book because trust me you are going to love this story.
The Architect of Song was such an enthralling read that I loved beyond words.
At the start of the book Juliet's life is turned upside down; Her mother has recently passed and a viscount wants to buy the home where she grew up in. Add to the fact that she's seeing a ghost and actually hearing him, well Juliet has quit an adventure ahead of her. You see Juliet is deaf and she can talk to people by reading lips so when she actually hears the ghost, Hawk talking she is overwhelmed by him and his story that she decides to help him find answers.
Juliet is a character that you'll be rooting for from start to finish; she's someone who deserves to be happy and the fact that she's fighting for her future makes her a fierce and likable character.
I'm going to be honest, as much as I liked Hawk every time Lord Thornton showed up I wanted to know more and more and more. He was definitely a mystery that I didn't mind solving ;)
The Architect of Song made my head spin like crazy; so many twists and turns happened in this book that I couldn't even trust my own thoughts anymore. AG Howard left me in shattered pieces but then she put me back together in the most beautiful way ever.

A lady imprisoned by deafness, an architect imprisoned by his past, and a ghost imprisoned within the petals of a flower - intertwine in this love story that transcends life and death.For most of her life, nineteen-year-old Juliet Emerline has subsisted – isolated by deafness – making hats in the solitude of her home. Now, she’s at risk to lose her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas Thornton, a twenty-seven-year-old mysterious and eccentric architect with designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name “Hawk” on the headstone and an unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death, other than the one name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton.To avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate, Juliet pushes aside her fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton’s secluded holiday resort, posing as a hat maker in one of his boutiques. There, she finds herself questioning who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches … or the specter who serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her mind and soul like no other man ever can. As sinister truths behind Lord Thornton’s interest in her estate and his tie to Hawk come to light, Juliet is lured into a web of secrets. But it’s too late for escape, and the tragic love taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever.International and NYT bestselling author, A.G. Howard, brings her darkly magical and visual/visceral storytelling to Victorian England. The Architect of Song is the first installment in her lush and romantic Haunted Hearts Legacy series, a four book gothic saga following the generations of one family as - haunted by both literal and figurative ghosts - they search for self-acceptance, love, and happiness.New Adult: Recommended for ages 17+.
A.G. Howard was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working at a school library. She always wondered what would’ve happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland taken center stage, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child.When she’s not writing, A.G.’s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.
