About the Author

Lucilla (Lucy) was born in the beautiful city of Prague, in the Czech Republic, and immigrated with her family to the U.S. in October, 1970. She earned a B.A. in Communications from Simmons College in 1982, and her love of writing led to a few short works published in fan magazines. When not traveling and exploring Greek and Roman archeological sites with her husband, Lucilla loves to listen to classical music, lose herself in the works of Alexandre Dumas, p¿re, and walk in the woods. Phantom's Legacy is her first novel. She would love to hear from readers and you may contact her at either: erikslegacy@aol.com or Lucillaepps@aol.com

I found this to be one of the best of the current crop of "Phantom" sequels; it covers the life of Erik, the 'Phantom' as he escapes the chaos of the Great Disaster and seeks fulfillment and peace in his troubled life.

This is NOT a "bodice-ripper"! Lucilla Epps has taken the story of Erik and tastefully written him as a real man, with strengths and faults, humor and sadness. I really enjoyed the roles of Madame and Meg Giry in the continuing tale, and even Carlotta has a part (though NOT the lead...). A real surprise is the resolution of the rivalry between Raoul and Erik--but I give too much away...

Play a concerto, light some candles, pour a glass of wine, and immerse yourself in this excellent first novel--I don't think you'll be disappointed!

I think this is my favorite Phantom novel! I absolutely loved what the author has done with all the characters! Having Erik tell the story in his very own words makes it so special for me! You get to know all the characters so well...you feel as if you are living their story with them! Erik is so in touch with himself in this one! With him telling the story...you are inside his head and he is finally able to feel love! I have never shed a tear in any of the other Phantom books but in this one...I did! I loved what the author has done with this much told story...and she manages to answer questions that have been left unanswered! You finish this book being completely satisfied...knowing all of the characters have found love and peace in their lives!

Phantom's Legacy begins where the movie ended, filling in the intervening years between Erik's release of Christine and the scene of Raoul in the graveyard. We are given a story that spans 48 years and interweaves the lives of the main characters in a satisfying way. And what a story Epps gives us! This fast-paced, well written book is the story of how a tragedy, like the opera house fire, can cause a lasting, positive effect on the lives and families of 4 people: Christine, Meg, Raoul and Erik. War, love, redemption, and healing are a few of the themes this tale encompasses. The energy with which it begins is sustained throughout, and my only complaint is the length of time (in years) that it takes for Erik to find and accept the steadfast love offered to him at the beginning of the story. But then, I am a hopeless romantic. This "flaw" did not negatively impact my enjoyment of this love story. Ms. Epps makes no secret of the fact that she wrote this story with the actors of POTO in mind. This in no way detracts from the story, in fact, it made it easier for me to visualize these interesting characters. Read it; it is well-worth your time.

Format: Paperback
This book moves quite fast, especially towards the beginning, as it glosses over years at a time in just a few pages. It sucks you in from the first page, and won't let you get off the roller coaster until the very end.

The scope of this book is what is most impressive. The plot is fast-paced because it has to be; the author covers nearly half a century from beginning to end. It is obvious that Ms. Epps did a lot of research about WWI, which touches the characters in tragic and personal ways. It is also obvious that she has a lot of love for these characters, and wanted to give us "the rest of the story," to use Paul Harvey's favorite sign-off.

The main criticisms I have about this book are that the large amount of exposition got tedious, especially when written in the first person. Some of the dialogue seemed unnecessarily cryptic, and the punctuation was odd: underlinings where there should have been dashes or ellipses. A couple of really pivotal plot points seemed questionable and far-fetched to me. Also, towards the end, there were too many characters for me to keep track of---which is always a risk in a multi-generational story. The book would have benefited from a genealogy chart in the front, or something like that, so we could keep track of whose children are whose.

Aside from those factors, I did enjoy this book. I read the whole thing in one night, in fact. The things I did enjoy were: the bedroom scenes were very tastefully written, with no squishy, graphic details--just tender and romantic ones. The characters were interesting (what we could see of them from inside Erik's head), and I especially liked his "daughter" and how she affected his character.

I bought this book expecting to enjoy it as I love Phantom of the Opera fan stories but not really believing it could be more than a usual read. I was absolutely glued to this book. If ever they make a movie to be a sequal to the 2004 film...this is the book that should be the script. I loved it. It makes dear Erik, Meg,Christine, Raoul and all the beloved characters of this original play come to life and live a life that I dreamed of for them. I was so moved by this story. It's sensitivity and beauty was wonderful and I felt I knew them, was there with them living through each year that Erik struggled and faced his demons of the soul. I was totally satisfied and pleased with this Authors conception of the aftermath of the Opera house disaster and the turns in the lives of the main characters in the story. To tell the story would spoil it for you, but Believe me...this book is well worth your time and your money. It holds a high place of honor on my bookshelf. Wonderful!!!!
