And here is where I fall.
Mina Daaé dreams of performing on Broadway. Like her great ancestor, Christine Daaé, who sang at the prestigious Palais Garnier a hundred years before, Mina has the voice of an angel. But after graduating from Conservatoire de Paris, fortune fails her. Until the circus comes to town.
Mina's close friend Toni Vollini offers her a role in his new Broadway play mixing Mozart with clowns. Known as The Harlequin, the musical is an inimitable adaptation of the opera Don Giovanni. Toni says Mina will soar, but with pathologic acrophobia, she's afraid she'll fall. And the ghost in her head says she will.
Toni and a ghost vie for her love, but Mina thinks her ghost is just another hallucination. Or is her ghost a phantom of the opera?
Phantom Masquerade is a contemporary adaptation of Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera integrating romance and the paranormal.
Content warning: There are sexual scenes, adult situations, and profanity.
What a ride!
I really enjoyed the pace, and the artistry of this book. Sensual, creative, dark, exciting, and the ending did not disappoint.
