Editorial Reviews

Author's website - 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.

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

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!
