Overview

The Phoenix Of The Opera by Sadie Montgomery

The Phantom of the Opera had released the love of his life, Christine Daaé, from his possession and retreated to his subterranean lair-to die. Young Meg Giry remained fascinated with her friend's captor, whom she would not permit to destroy himself. Through Meg's care the Phantom returns to life and makes his courageous savior his protégeé. But can the Phantom, hunted by Parisian authorities and Christine's husband, the dashing Count de Chagny, escape his criminal past? Can he forget his first beloved or will he continue to haunt Christine, as she does him? Will Meg, who hungers for his love, be able to heal his heart and make him her own? The Phoenix of the Opera explores the limits of redemption and the power of love, taking us into the tortured souls of its protagonists. It is a grand tale of despair, obsession, rekindled passion, and the power of love.

This book was well-written and intact. I am glad that the journey continues in Out of the Darkness, but if it did not I would be satisfied with Phoenix. I have not yet read the dozens of other continuations of the Phantom of the Opera, but I utterly feel that Sadie's Phoenix of the Opera is one way in which Andrew Lloyd's movie could carry forward. The characters and their emotions were so genuine and allied with those of the film. Patience is killing me to find out what happens in the next five novels! Yes, FIVE! (Check out Sadie's website). The Phantom's adventure has only begun!

This amazing story is wonderful for any mature reader who has grown up loving, or has only resently discovered the magnificent tale of the Phantom of the Opera. Montgomery adds more depth to some of the characters we don't see as much in Lloyd Webber's production, and even gives a new feel to the Phantom himself. There is a more human element to this man which had yet to be uncovered, and shows through in this novel without taking away any of the splendor of the Phantom. The plot flows without a problem, always hooking the reader. The story is that of a character you can truely understand, and doesn't confuse the reader like some Phantom stories can. The romance of the novel is full of passion that only Erik (the Phantom) seems to be cabable of, and therefore is suggested for more mature readers. Even though the touching love within the story would be enough to hook many a Phantom fan, there is also a plot on more of a self-reflecting level as Erik struggles to escape his past... and his obssession with Christine Daae he realises perhaps there is yet hope for the Opera Ghost- if he can move on. But can he?

after reading so many of these books, i liked the idea of erik with someone other than christine. this book was ok, but the discription leads people to beleave that he falls in love with meg. to me it was not love at all. he settled for what he could get rather than being alone. i can not stand christine, all she does is lead him on. i has been a few years sence i read this book and still have not gotten myself to were i want to read the next two. maybe one day.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I found that as I was reading it I couldn't put it down. I'm a big fan of Phantom of the Opera whether it be Webber's version or Leroux's. The only thing I didn't like about the story is that I think the author just saw the 2004 movie and nothing else.She based her book completly off of the move. The movie was good but I think she could use more of Leroux's Phantom.

I been reading a lot of Phantom sequels since I found them, and this one isn't one of the best but it isn't one of the worst either. There are a couple of problems with the writing and historically but they are only just a little annoying. But here again is a story where Christine goes back to the phantom--I just can't see that. I want to read sequels where he finds his own life and leaves her be because that is what a mature adult does.

What an excellent sequel to the movie! Wonder if Webber would care to compose a score for a film version because this story is worthy of one. I cannot say enough...what a brilliant and thoughtful writer is Sadie Montgomery. I am very eager to read the next installment of Eric's story!

I will begin by saying that I loved the movie The Phantom of the Opera but was so sad that Erik was left alone. I loved this book because it took me where my imagination wanted to go. Sadie Montgomery took me on a journey through the hearts and minds of these complex souls. I was emotionally involved from beginning to end. I did not want to put the book down and now I can not wait until the next.
