4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, needs better editing December 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt I absolutely adore this plot. I get so frustrated when I read published sequels that utilize the musical's story formula, or a mixture of both the Leroux novel and the musical. It was the most amazing breath of fresh air to finally read a book that is completely Leroux based in its characters and styling.

The plot was perhaps the most enthralling part of the story. The book starts out with Erik's failed suicide attempt and the managers' attempt to murder him for good. He is then accidentally driven in a wagon to a Epernay where is cared for by Madame de Leon, wife to a local judge. As he heals, he is eventually hired by the judge to become the caretaker of the chateau. Erik soon discovers a conspiracy against the de Leon family and teams up with Madame de Leon to stop it.

I gave the book four stars because the more I read it, the more obvious it was to me that someone was asleep when they edited this book. There are dozens of typos, punctuation that I felt was improperly placed, and worst of all, changes in first and third person mid-sentence. I don't consider myself too skilled at grammar so I always find it shocking when I notice mistakes.

I did enjoy the plot so much that I tried my best to ignore these mistakes. The book is truly worth reading and a must for any person who adores the Leroux novel. If you've only seen the musical version of this tale, I highly suggest reading the book beforehand to properly understand some of the undertones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Wonderful July 3, 2012
By Kelsey
Format:Kindle Edition
This sequel to The Phantom of the Opera is very refreshing. In most books, there are many characters who refuse to change their beliefs, their perspective on life, or just as a person. In this book, The Phantom grows as a person and finally recieves some happiness in his life after all he has been through. This sequel is truly amazing and is one of my favorite books. I will definitely continue to read this story over and over again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have used formatting May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the plot an interesting twist and for once having Erik with a happy ending. The formatting and typos made it difficult at times to follow. At least the novel was about Erik with very little to do with either Christine or Raoul. At times I thought that it dragged but as someone already pointed out, it wasn't a take off from the musical or from Susan Kay's novel. Although I prefer Kay's is one that any Phan would enjoy. But if Ms. Hanson does read her reviews, I would highly suggest that she take care of the formatting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!! March 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I devoured this book today! I started composing the review at half way done! So well written! Such a tender and moving story! Good verses evil with beauty and love. The priest was especially moving with his beautiful words. If it wasn't nearly one in the morning, I'd read it again! Very well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!! December 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is by far the BEST POTO sequel that I have ever read! What I love most about this book is that it's about Erik NOT Christine. For once in my life I have finally, FINALY found a book that is not about Christine trying to get Erik back. So all I have to say is buy this book you will not regret it!! And I have just one request please, please, PLEASE make another POTO sequel!! I want to read more about O.G.'s new life!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great plot but needed a tad more research May 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This sequel to the Phantom of the Opera had a terrific plot and that is its main strength. I would have enjoyed a little more depth and passion, but still, it was a good read. Not to be too picky, but---I was acutely distracted and dismayed by the author's use of the word "Messieur" instead of the correct "Monsieur". This is elementary French and even if she did not have a background in this language, a tiny bit of research on her part would have avoided this error. And also to my dismay, she credited Beethoven with writing Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. With a click of her mouse, she would have known in seconds that J.S. Bach wrote this. Aside from these flaws, which really are minor in the grand scheme of the book and could have been prevented altogether by a proper editor, I liked the plot, the atmosphere, the aspects of nature in her writing and also, the love story, which was unique and interesting. I give it three stars instead of the four I would have given had her historical facts and knowledge of French been more accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow March 7, 2013
By DottyG
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a complaint about this book. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down until I finished it! Therefore, everything else in my day got put on hold!

This was a beautifully written story. A romance, to me, is judged by how much it tugs at my own heartstrings and makes me feel for the characters. This one did just that. I felt Erik/Olivier's pain. When he cried, it touched my heart. I felt the pain of never loving or even being kissed. And I grew to love Angelique along with him. She was a tender, caring soul who deserved a love like Olivier's.

I felt the characters in this book were nicely fleshed out. All of them had a story to tell, and I feel that the author did a good job of doing so.

The story has a bit of a mystery element to it, which I think was handled nicely. One thing that struck me was that the backstory of the characters wasn't told immediately. While I was confused by this at first, it was nice to see the puzzle pieces start to fit together. For instance, Jean Luc is being bandaged in the beginning of the book. Why? It wasn't clear. However, as the story progressed, this was answered in a natural way. I felt that the author didn't patronize her readers by explaining details of the plot, but let the readers discover these details at just the right timing and in the right way.

The "new being in Christ" element of the story was wonderful. It was worked into the plot well and gave hope that our Erik truly had a bright future ahead of him.

I congratulate this author on a beautiful followup to the story many of us have read before about the Phantom. It's a nice "closure" piece that I recommend.

Would like to see more works by this author, if this is typical of her writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable and kind of cheesy
This book was much, much easier to read than the original because it is modern but it was also kind of soap opera-y and predictable. It was not as good as I was expecting it to be.

More About the Author

Thanks for popping in! After seeing Phantom of the Opera in London, I wanted more of the Phantom, Erik. I read the original story by Gaston Leroux through seven times and then started taking notes!!! I couldn't stand the thought of leaving Erik in the dark...alone. I hope you enjoy this story.

I am working on another sequel with Erik and Angelique. Soon I will have two more historical novels available for ebooks.
