For those of you who have fallen under the spell of the Phantom of the Opera with it's darkly haunting music and tragically beautiful story will fall in love with this story just as quickly.
Set almost a year after the events at the Garnier opera house the phantom leaves Paris behind and taking the name Erik Dante begins life anew. He purchases the Royal Opera House on the island of Malta after it had been severely damaged in a fire. With a new dream can Erik forget Christen Daaé and build a new life? Who knows maybe the impossible will happen and he will be able to find someone to love the man under the mask?
This is a story that captured me from the very beginning. It is beautifully written and the cast of characters incuding old faces and new is exqusite. There are ties to the original that you never see coming. I only wish there was a musical score along with the story, but then again I adore the violin.
I recomend this book to anyone who enjoyed Phantom of th Opera and everyone else for that matter.
