Editorial Reviews

Cailin Reviewer
This is a most worthy sequel to Leroux's original novel. A grand and adventurous pondering of what might have happened if Erik chose to live rather than "die of love". It includes an inventive storyline, a wonderful cast of characters old and new, and many memorable scenes rent with the dark emotion characteristic of great Phantom literature. The very depiction of the Phantom was one of the best I've ever read; his sarcasm and dark sense of humor was what made the book most enjoyable.
Crystal's Romance Reviews - Crystal Adkins
Madrigal: A Novel of Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera by Jennifer Linforth is magical, breathtaking, and went well beyond my expectations. I have to admit, I do not know Leroux's novel, or much about the Phantom beyond his disfigurement and his love for Christine, but Ms. Linforth made me realize that I have truly missed a great story! A perfect read for anyone that would like to know what could have been. 5 Hearts
Teri Reviewer
This novel had me hooked from beginning to end. Ms. Linforth's writing was nothing short of fantastic; she stayed true to the original characters as created by Leroux, giving them depth and purpose. The plot was intricately woven, seducing the reader to continue on. Phantom fans won't want to miss this gem!

Before you start reading "Madrigal", be forewarned: you won't want to put it down!

Meet the Author

Her passion lies in crafting stories from forgotten pieces of history and setting them in locations just outside the expected. She focuses on unusual themes and locations, all in the backdrop of the intrigue of the 19th century. Jennifer has as much of a passion for the history of the Habsburg Empire and the allure Austrian culture, as she does for the quiet rolling hills of New England. She only has one rule with her historicals: Expect the unexpected.

It was her love of research and classic literature that brought her to expanding Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera.

Writing from a tiny loft office, Jennifer admits to being country mouse with city mouse tastes and is constantly fighting to keep the little critters in line. She can't pronounce pistachio, hates lollipops with gooey centers, and dearly loves to laugh. If asked for her motto in life, she points to the following poem upon her office wall:

Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It's too high! COME TO THE EDGE! And they came, and he pushed, and they flew. ~ Christopher Logue

Croyez.

    Refreshing

    There are many "sequels" to The Phantom of the Opera, but the vasr majority of them are based upon or inspired by the 2004 movie. If, like me, you are looking for something more Lerouxian in nature, then this is the book for you. Here we have Erik in all his mad genius glory. An enjoyable read!

    It was well writen but defective on my nook. It read like a norm

    It was well writen but defective on my nook. It read like a normal book would but the page numbers skipped around. ( ex. 87 to 91 to 93). It is hard because I am a student who has to keep a reading log. But if page numbers are not a concern for the reader, this is a fabulous book.
