I’ve never felt at home at Juilliard. My stagefright always makes me choke when I’m under the spotlight, to my classmates’ delight. But when I’m dragged into a new world, to a new school—where singing is more than a talent, it’s magic—I can’t hide my voice anymore. This new power is tempting, but terrifying forces swirl around the kingdom of Cantus. Missing girls, rivals a ...more

I friggin adore this spin on the phantom of the opera!!!! So amazingly written and the characters are fabulous as well !!! I have watched and read a lot of versions of this tale and I will have to say this is one of the best!!! In this tale the phantom erike is cursed and he's a total bad boy!!! And Krissy a human with the gift of song becomes his obsession. This is a sensuous and sexy twist on a old classic and it totally pulled me in. The secondary characters are intriguing as well from erike' ...more

Such a very strange book. Certainly a very original take on phantom. Krissey is a shy student of music that finds herself drawn into a strange impossible world of magic. A school of music... But magic here is music, the voice, the word. There is a curse, yet to be fully revealed, which has split this world in two. Krissey is taken to be prima Donna, her voice the key to breaking the curse. But what of the mysterious Erike who resides beneath the school. He has power but the curse has disfigured ...more

Hauntingly Alluring

I've long been a fan of POTO and while I've read many retelling and adaptations of other classics, I've not read and Phantom retelling before. This not only changed that, but now I can't wait to read more!

Interesting

This story has an excellent beginning. It is dark and intriguing. I am still confused about the curse. So far we have bits and pieces about it but not a full picture. I kind of wish someone would sit xoen and explain the curse. As it is, there is no clear good oe bad guy. Both sides seem to be at fault. And i suspect that what has been laid down at the feet of one is less his fault than the accusations say. It is a dark tale though. The "f" word is used and there is a lot of hormonal/

Well crafted new world and tale for the usual suspects

Loosely based on The Phantom Of The Opera, set in modern times with a paranormal twist, this is a highly engaging tale. It ends on a cliffhanger, but the second book is available - I'll be typing this quickly to go to the next volume!

Christine, Erik, Raoul, Carlotta and more are turned into new characters here, glimpses of the source material still evident. They're young, beautiful, and the book has sensual undertones - sometimes overtones!
