I'm the author, but this is the first time I'm actually reading through the entire book! It's not bad! LOL!
Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~*
Thank goodness for snow days! A day to catch up on your book, and what a book to curl up with & finish up on! Let me first say the forward from the author of this was pretty much a "prequel" for me as to how this book would unfold,she laid her heart bare & I felt such powerful emotion behind her words that I knew the same would go into her book. I was not disappointed! This book truly comes from the heart,& threw her words you could feel the love,pain,& torment of Christine & ...more

Recommends it for: Adults and mature teens.
Recommended to Anne by: The author.
From the first few pages, I found it very hard to put this book down, even to sleep! What a beautiful story and telling. Paisley has a wonderful grasp of the Phantom in all his glory, sorrow and beauty. She has a wonderful idea on Christine Daae, starting with the day her father dies, and working from the time she comes to the Opera house to stay with Mme. Giry and her daughter, Meg. They quickly become dear friends, and Christine, although missing her father terribly, blossoms under their frien ...more
We begin at the funeral of Christine's father, in Christine's point of view, which is something that i have always, always, wanted to experience. Christine is wrecked by the loss of her father at only ten years old, and is taken to live in the opera house...thus begins our tale.

Erik lives in the cellars of the opera house, it's the only place he is safe from the ridicule of the outside world, but he longs for someone to love and share his music with. In Christine, is where he will believe he fi
Chanson de l'Ange : Book One: The Bleeding Rose is a lush, romantic reinterpretation of The Phantom of the Opera. In Ms. Stewart's version Erik hears a voice, from far below in the cellars, he is riveted by it. It is amazingly beautiful and he is haunted by it until he finally discovers who this heavenly instrument belongs to. A sad and lonely little girl, recently orphaned and taken in by the Ballet Mistress, Madame Louise Giry to train as a ballerina and chorus girl and be raised by her alongs ...more
You will not be disappointed! You will be captivated from page one! I read the book in 2 days!! I didn't want to put it down. I am actually starting to read it a 2nd time while waiting for the next book to come out. I just love the detail of the start of Christine and Erik's relationship when she first came to the Opera House. Erik's love for this little girl is just amazing! Even the start of Christine and Raoul's relationship when they first met on the beach is just excellent!! As the story un ...more
The author's telling of Christine's story comes through with familiarity and an obvious command of the arts that allows the reader to relax and flow with the story. PSS delivers the world of the Opera seamlessly, and I was able to delve right in without any reservation as to the quality of this read. I found it grass-roots POTO, incorporating all the key elements while avoiding - sorry for the word - bastardization. As much as I want Erik to just rip off the mask and proclaim he really is Gerard ...more
A wonderful, emotional novel from the beginning to the end. And it is only the first half!
This is the first Phantom novel that I have read were I can truly say I would have a hard time chosing between the Phantom or Raoul and that for me is something amazing as I usually find Raoul a complete wimp and would go with the Phantom wither he was crazy or not just because he was the best of the both lol. But this novel will truly have you questioning what makes a relationship and just how any differen
I watched The Phantom of the Opera movie, but couldn't understand most of what Christine was saying, so I decided to read the book. After scouring through all the different editions on Amazon, this one seemed like the best. Even though I'm a fast reader, it took me awhile to get through this book. I'm glad I stuck with it, because the book just gets better and better. I love the changes that Christine goes through, and that she doesn't always make the obvious choice. I loved the way and the book ...more
Best. Christine. I. Have. Ever. Read!
I love how the author took the threads of different Phantom stories and wound them into her own. This book was just wonderful and Christine was just how I imagined her to be. It took me quite some time to find that Christine but now finally someone got her perfect (for me at least) and also Erik is torn between his humanity and his demonic side that he may not be able to control one day. I was just so emotion reading this book! I was crying at one moment and
This is a very good re-telling of The Phantom of the Opera through Christine's point of view. I Always have wondered about Christine's character, this story gives you a good image of Christine's character.
Rachel Remorse
This book is definetly going to surface your emotions. I recommmend it for those who love Phantom of the Opera.
Kayla Hensley
The release of The 25th Anniversary of Phantom has given me an insatiable craving for everything Phantom... So far this is shaping up to be a great adaptation!
