I absolute adored Ms. Creagh's Nevermore trilogy, so I'm hype to see her writing something new. Hopefully this does come out in 2020 and we get a cover reveal soon. ...more

I'd like to thank the people at Penguin and the author herself for allowing me to read this book.

Phantom Heart is a solid reinterpretation of the book, Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. I enjoyed reading the updates for a modern audience and I loved reading the new twists and spins that Kelly gave to the story. Being familiar with her previous work, I knew this was going to be something special and interesting.

I think a lot of young readers will find the writing for the teens to be very ag

I read a pre-publication version of Phantom Heart and loved it. Paranormal (and normal) romance, Egyption mythlogy, adventure--what's not to love? I especially enjoyed the ghost-hunting group, which captures the seriousness and silliness of that avocation. Kelly Creagh has penned another winner. ...more

I don’t whether to breathe into a paper bag or screech like a delighted banshee.

The author of probably my favorite YA trilogy is coming out with a new book in 2021? And it’s a Phantom of the Opera retelling, you say?

Excuse me, I don’t think the term “fangirling” is enough for all the emotions I’m feeling.

There’s hope now that 2021 will be a year so much better than 2020.

I AM BEYOND EXCITED FOR PHANTOM HEART.

I'm a big fan of Kelly Creagh. Her Nevermore trilogy is still hands down one of my favourite trilogies. Gothic paranormal romance, aside from magical realism, is my favourite genre to read even though lately, I've been reading a ton of adult romance fiction. My tastes have changed as I prefer to read new adult and adult books, but I'm still very open to reading YA (I have trouble connecting to the character or the writing style).

I'm a huge Varen and Isobel

More mask, more monster! Phantom Heart is a fantastic retelling of Phantom of the Opera with many unique twists including a loveable group of ghost hunting high schoolers. They offer great bits of comedy among the dark and terrifying. I gotta say, the character of Wes is the best and turned out to be my favorite character in the book. The dark romance blends dreamily well with a scary victorian mansion and an ancient curse.

I love the book!

Twist and turns that keep your interest and surprise you (No.....I'm not telling what they are).

My favorite character is Wes, love his sharp wit. Charlie and Stephanie are great, too.

A smart, thrilling and at times humorous retelling of PotO. The characters and plot are well thought out and the writing is simply stunning. Love it!
