"A Love Story for Phantom Fans!"
The Phantom of the Opera is dead or is he? After Christine
leaves with Raoul, all believe The Phantom has perished,
but Erik or better known as, The Phantom is still alive and
living below the Opera Garnier. He vows to live a quiet
life. However, Anna, who works at the opera house, knows
about his existence. She leaves him packages of goodwill.
Furious that someone has found him out, Erik plans to put a
stop to the young woman's foolishness. Only Anna has plans
of her own.
Erik still longs for Christine, the woman who loved him as
the Angel of Music, but could not love the man. He also
loves Anna, the woman who accepts him no matter what mask
he wears: Murderer, maestro, magician or mastermind.
The managers of the Opera Garnier plan a con with Anna's
deadbeat father to resurrect the legendary phantom and have
Christine return to perform at the opera house. When Anna's
life is also put in jeopardy, Erik is forced to become The
Phantom once more to put an end to this charade. In doing
so, he'll be forced to face his past to either accept and
transcend to a new life or slip into the dark madness that
threatens to engulf him.
Ms. Linforth has written a magical tale where you'll be
swept back to the Opera Garnier and its splendor. Erik is
still the tortured soul remembered in Gaston Leroux's
classic, The Phantom of the Opera. Erik could easily
embrace the essence of the angel of music or lose himself
to the tortured soul of a madman. Anna with her sordid past
has an understanding of being an outcast and is able to see
the man beneath the mask. The friendship, trust and the
sweet romance will have any reader hoping for the chance of
true love. Fans of the Phantom of the Opera will not be
disappointed and those who haven't experienced the magic of
the story will simply be enchanted.
The tale isn't a paranormal read per se, but it's a Top
