REVIEW: The Opera Ghost Unraveled by Michelle Rodriguez

Book Blurb: Before Christine’s father died, he promised to send the Angel of Music. As no more than a voice, her angel appeared, stealing her loneliness and teaching her to sing, but now she has fallen in love with him and wishes he were a man of flesh and bone who could love her in return.
 
Under the guise of angel, Erik tries to find a window into Christine’s life. When being an intangible voice is no longer enough and the Vicomte de Chagny threatens his hold over her heart, truths must be revealed. As the illusion shatters and Christine learns her angel is really the disfigured Opera Ghost with a sin-filled soul, will Erik lose every chance at winning her love and claiming his happy ending?


My Review: The premise of this book is Erik trying to get Christine to love him while Raoul is trying his best to get her to love him. The two warring factions of Raoul and Erik make this an interesting read. On one hand you have Erik who just wants Christine to love him but wants her to be independent but is also extremely possessive of her. On the other hand we have Raoul who wants her to love him like he loves her but her to subservient to him. I believe that Christine makes the correct choice.

This book was brilliant but could have been edited better. The reader will see certain words and descriptions constantly. I will admit I got tired of seeing them. Sometimes I just wanted to put down the book from seeing the same words and descriptions. Does the author own a thesaurus? But I persevered and by the time I got almost to the end I couldn't put the book down. This is one of the better Phantom of the Opera variation books out there and I look forward to reading her other novels.

Rating: ★★★★☆
