    A faithful followup to a classic story!

    I was introduced to the original Phantom of the Opera by my mother and fell in love with the story. I have read other stories regarding Phantom and this story is faithful to the original. The author did a good deal of research and her efforts shine. This story has it all! There are the managers who are not as intelligent as they think. The bad guy would make an excellent candidate for an FBI profiler. There are the original characters we have grown to love and the author treats them with respect for which this reader was very grateful! Christine is ditzy and still confused as to where her heart lies. Raoul is a loving man unable to see past the blinders he wears when it comes to his wife. Erik is slightly mad, still dangerous and yearning for a life he thinks is beyond his reach. And playing the music of her life through all of theirs is the original character of Anna. She is independent and feisty and vulnerable all at the same time. She makes each of the original characters look deep into their hearts and confront the secrets they hold there while running from her own past and secrets. All the main characters are flawed - none of them completely good or completely evil. They all have personal motivations for their actions that make perfect sense to them. Bottom line? They are human and that is what makes this story so compelling. There is enough romance and thrills and action and danger to satisfy every reader - every type of Phantom fan - at least until the next two books!

    The book truthfuly deserves three stars max. The book could have

    The book truthfuly deserves three stars max. The book could have been written by a talented 7-12 grade student. It had great metaphors but repeated phrases time and time again. It reads like a common fanfiction that can be found on the internet. If you want a GOOD phantom book, read the original Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Lerox or Phantom by Susan Kay.

    Romancing the Book

    I’ve always wondered what could have happened had Erik found a new life. In the Phantom we know that Christine and Raoul go off get married and so on. I fell in love with the mysterious Phantom and wanted him to find love. In Madrigal Ms. Linforth carries on the story where it left off. Giving Erik a chance to redeem himself and move on with his life and his work.


    You meet old friends and make new ones as Ms. Linforth takes us on an amazing journey of where the Phantom left off. I fell in love from the start and was so caught up that I didn’t want to ever have this wonderful story to stop. This is definitely a must read for Phantom lovers everywhere that have always wondered what could have happened if…

    Praise to Ms. Linforth for bringing the ‘Mysterious Magic’ of the Phantom back again and seducing the reader with each page. Not knowing what to expect I simply fell in love with the continuation of Erik’s Story. How his life changes after Christine Daae marries Raoul. For anyone who loves the romance and history behind the Phantom will enjoy this enthralling story of what may have happened next.

    Style: like Leroux, Plot: like fanfiction

    I have been a reader/devourer of Phantom sequels since I fell in love with the original years and years ago. I was reluctant to order this series because it is rare to find a sequel that lives up to my standards...(this may also have to do with my deep hatred for Christine and Raoul.) However, when I started reading this book, I was drawn in by the writing style and the loyalty to the original. I felt as if I was reading something that Leroux wrote from the dead. To be fair, the plot wasnt quite as realistic as I would have liked and the characters (besides Erik) lacked something... Overall, I enjoyed reading this as well as its sequel.
