Overview

The Madrigals Continue...
While on the run and hiding in Germany, Erik lives like everyone else--until one nobleman strikes back...
When Anna's secret past is revealed and she is captured by Raoul's bounty hunter, Erik is forced to avenge her. This time the madness of the Phantom cannot be freely unleashed. Erik must rein himself in for the sake of his genius son and hideously deformed daughter.
With few allies as he takes to the streets of Paris in pursuit of Anna and his nemesis, Raoul, one man, The Persian, seeks to help while Christine seeks to keep Erik at large. Forced to turn over his control while spinning out of it, Erik's past as the Phantom of the Opera roars to life before Paris and his unsuspecting children, and only The Persian tries to talk sense to him.
But talk is senseless when talking to a madman.
Overcome by his history and desperate to keep the past from destroying his life, Erik takes Paris by storm...
Two guns.
One bullet.
And a result that changes everything...

Editorial Reviews

"Rondeau" is a very satisfying conclusion to the Madrigals trilogy. The "Erik" and "Daroga" of this series, and their interactions with each other, seem true to Leroux's original characters. Anna is a very likable, strong woman, and a perfect match for Erik. Raoul and Christine, likewise, seem perfectly matched.

I'm sorry to see the series end. The relationships between the children of Raoul and Erik are also very interesting, and worthy of another book.

Very nice conclusion to a captivating trilogy. All characters are true to M. Leroux's creation. In this last volume, the author at last introduces us to Phillippe de Chagny, a character seen only briefly through Erik's eyes, and one that should be worth a more in depth exploration. For me, the question of his demise is never fully answered. Overall, highly recommend the trilogy as a whole. Linforth creates an intriguing picture of Erik--Maestro, mastermind, madman, genius, father.

Ms. Linforth has penned a wonderful ending to her Madrigal series. Erik, Anna, Christine and Raoul continue to clash in this suspenseful conclusion. Wicked villains and grown children add dimension to the a page-turning plot that kept me enthralled. Well done, Ms. Linforth, this is most definitely going on my "keeper shelf" next to the other two books!
