Deception by Shirley Yoshinaka

Following the Paris opera house disaster, Erik, the charismatic and disfigured man known as the Phantom, settled into a secluded home on the outskirts of London. He resigned himself to a life of solitude, but two years later, fate introduced him to a young woman who reawakened his emotions.

Although Mellie was a gifted composer, no one took her work seriously. She recognized Erik's brilliance and was desperate for his help. Drawn to both the man and his talent, she made a bold proposition, and he accepted. Together, they forged a unique partnership that became the talk of London society.

But when Erik's past returned to haunt him, he could lose everything he'd gained in his new life - including Mellie.

Deception is a tale of loss, healing, and ultimately of love.

I was a little skeptical at first, since im a die hard Phantom of the Opera fan, but this story is just wonderful!! Yoshinaka really captures Erik, as well as her own characters. This is a great book and would totally recommend those Phantom lovers to read it!! ^_^

This one is a winner and I'm keeping it to read again. I like the different story--no running and sobbing after Christine. ((The stories I've read where he does that just makes him a loser even if he gets her back.)) Many many thanks to the author!!!! Even though the writing could be better, this is still worth reading for a fan who isn't caught up in the machochistic stalking thing that's in most of the other books.

I was a bit skeptical about a pairing outside of Erik\Christine at first, but the character of Mellie is well written and a very believable match to the Phantom. Erik is very much in character, and although it starts a little slow- once I got into it I couldn't put it down.

I was originally sceptical of this book, since I had never read a sequal to The Phantom Of The Opera before, and I wasn't quite ready to let the dream of Christine and Erik die. However, I was happily surprised by this novel. Erik was greatly developed, as was Mellie, and I couldn't put it down. The only thing that stopped me from reading it all night into the morning was school. The plot is amazing, and I love the scenarios the author has put the characters into. I must say that it is one of my favorite books, and that's saying something, because I'm usually very picky! I'm now in the middle of my second reading of it, and it has not lost its charm. Thanks for a wonderful book, and I hope the author comes out with more, as she is exceptionally talented!

This was one of the best books I have ever read. I recommend it to Phantom lovers everywhere. Deception was beautifully written and has now earned it self a permanent place on my bookshelf. Not an easy task to accomplish.

of Erik's story. This is one of my (if not the most) favorite sequels to PotO that I've read so far. Having only been formerly introduced to the character of Erik roughly a year ago by way of the exceptional 2004 movie, (based on Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical masterpiece), I was amazed to find so many sequels written about our dear Phantom. This book is to me a believable continuation of his story, which involves Erik's struggle to exist without Christine after leaving Paris following the Opera House disaster. I've read it more than once, finding it contains all the elements needed for a well-paced, well-told tale. I rate it 5 *****'s & 2 thumbs up!

A few good scenes here and there...the unmasking is rather dramatic and good but the rest of the book just plods along. No passion, no fire, no magic. I didn't recognize Eric the Phantom in this story. He's more of a gothic hero. And the ending was a little abrupt and not believable. Try to find this one at the library and save your money.
