I was a bit iffy about reading a sequel to Phantom of the Opera, which is my favourite book, musical and movie, but once I started reading, it drew me right in. Loved the concept of the story, the writing style, everything about this book made me smile. It had the right amount of romance and angst, which I think it what the Phantom of the Opera is about. The author should be very proud as she has a wonderful book here. Congratulations.

As a phantom 'phan', i was intriqued when i came across Vicki's book so got it for my kindle. I loved the continuation of the story in Vicki's minds eye, and literally couldn't put it down! The relationship between Erik and madame Giry flowed on effortlessly from the original book, and the introduction of new characters and the return of 'old' ones showed that Vicki has a real connection with all thing phantom. I would recommend anyone with a love for the phantom to read this book and let Erik live on!

I haven't quite finished this book yet, but I'm enjoying it. It's easy to read and follow, I love the storyline so far. This is the first phan phic I have read, but a great one to start on, very believable. I could easily imagine the Phantom wanting to start a new life away from Paris, moving to Malta. Valletta is the sort of city that would be right up the Phantom's street (no pun intended). All narrow streets and dark alleys. The author has done her homework, there really was a devastating fire at the Royal Opera House at about the time the novel is set. Well done! Will be finishing it soon. :-)

Why oh why do people who attempt to write sequels to the phantom of the Opera novel always manage to turn them into a Mills and Boon epic. They are obviously inspired by the alw version. If they had read the original book they would have noticed that dear old Erik was a complete nutjob into torture kidnapping and murder with a face that sank a thousand ships. there was nothing at all exciting in the story. I had to struggle to finish it.
