4.0 su 5 stelle Satisfying read 5 giugno 2008
Di L. L. Gray - Pubblicato su

"Deception" pleasantly introduces new characters into the old story. Erik has escaped Paris for London after the fire that destroyed the Paris Opera House and the loss of Christine. His one interest is listening to music sitting in the rafters of a nearby concert hall. While there, he notices two new-comers; an older man and a young woman, Melodie, who appears to be blind. Intrigued when he overhears that she is a working composer, he begins to follow her to learn more about her, and while doing so, rescues her from being trampled by a rearing horse. This leads to an unusual musical collaboration, with several unexpected results, for both Melodie and Erik.

Because no one believes that a woman is capable of being a serious composer, Melodie composes under the name of Michael Blythe. This is the first deception of the title. When the past begins to intrude into their lives, both their safety and sanity are threatened, leading to further deceptions.

I would recommend this book for Phantom genre fans, especially young adults.

I think this is one of the better Phantom fictions out there. she wrote good characters; I liked the story a lot, except for a few things that bothered me here and there. (minor phantom details that do not hurt the story.) I'm not sure if hers was after the movie or not, (I could be mistaken, though I did find it fitting) however, it does not hurt the story, though somehow I found it a little predictable. I'm not sure Erik would compose himself as such as she has described, but in a way it makes him feel more human, taking away from the entire opera "ghost" persona, which I actually found rather likeable. I still couldn't help but wish for the "old" phantom to shine through a little more though at some points, but he definitely shines through in this book, though I will not say where! she did a great job at making this her own.

I think this is a good one if you've always wondered what happened to the phantom after he walked through the shattered mirror in the 2004 movie by ALW, or what happened to him period. perhaps it will provide an answer for some, as it did for myself.

4.0 su 5 stelle Rather Good Debut Novel 18 dicembre 2006
Di Sharon E. Cathcart - Pubblicato su

Shirley Yoshinaka's debut novel is actually one of the better ones in the genre. Her characters are consistent, her plot line makes sense and, best of all, she actually seems to understand the character of Erik as Leroux intended him to be. Yoshinaka's plot line, in which Erik befriends a female composer who is losing her sight, does *not* go down the typical road one might expect. She handles the plot twists very well, and puts a great deal of thought and information into every page of this brief novel. I don't want to say more for fear of giving away plot points, and this book is definitely worth reading to find out for yourself.

3.0 su 5 stelle One Of The Better Phantom Sequels 12 gennaio 2008
Di Ayesha - Pubblicato su
Two days following the release of Christine and her lover, Erik must make a decision. Will he succumb to his grief at losing Christine or will he rise above it and move on, leaving her in his past?

Erik decides to move on - and so he moves to England.

Living in a small cottage on the outskirts of London, Erik merely exists for a year or so still tortured by his past. Until one day, a small black and white collie comes scratching at his front door.

Beaten and with a broken leg, the dog looks up at the deformed recluse. Erik takes pity on her and nurses her back to health. This one act of kindness impels him to live his life in the real world, and in so doing, his love for music is rekindled.

He dusts off the unused piano he'd purchased when he bought the house and immerses himself in his music. When it comes to the point where that fails to satisfy him, he ventures out into the city to visit the many theaters, to lurk in the rafters and take in the concerts and musicals performed therein. He finally decides on one particular theater to visit because he favors the fine quality of the orchestra.

Eventually, a young woman starts to join him in the rafters for the performances. At first he is annoyed, but she is a quiet lady with a calm demeanor and he soon learns to ignore her and the older gentleman that sometimes accompanies her. However, when the young woman and her companion fail to show for a several-month hiatus, he is curious and surprised to see her show up once again, this time climbing the stairs to the rafters with a cane. It is obvious that the young woman is going blind. This development catches his attention so he leans toward them from his hiding place and listens to their conversation.

He soon discovers that the young woman, named Melodie, is an accomplished composer in her own right. Her guardian, Henry (the man who accompanies her to the theater), recommended her to write a chamber-orchestra arrangement to be performed at the birthday party of the wife of one of the Parliament members. Because Melodie is a woman and one of the lower class at that, it becomes necessary for Henry to instigate the deception. Therefore, she is portrayed as being a reclusive man by the name of Michael Blythe.

Sometime later, Erik makes a point to meet the young female composer. I'll skip the details in case you want to read it. But due to Melodie's deteriorating eyesight and need of an assistant - and Erik's need of procuring funds - she hires him to help her transfer her music to paper and to assist her with the score. Thus, a collaboration of musical talents ensues and a relationship between the young, attractive, and nearly blind composer and the former Phantom of the Opera begins...

Although I'm generally not a keen Erik/Other Woman shipper, this story proves to me that a believable and fairly enjoyable story can be written about Erik and another woman. In fact, I didn't miss Christine at all in this book.

Still, "Deception" is a far cry from Susan Kay's "Phantom" or Suzy Charnas' "Beauty and the Opéra". "Deception" reads like a fanfic. I came across phrases that sounded too modern for 19th century dialogue. While I like the premise and the story basics, there were developments that seemed rather "forced" to me. The author also incorporates incidents that are very reminiscent of some of the happenings at the Paris Opera House - not to mention a character by the name of David Wentworth who seemed very "Raoulish" to me.

Of course, that's just me. Other readers may be intrigued by those developments so if that's the case, I don't want to discourage you from reading it. Besides, there seems to be a glut of self-published "phanphics" out there and compared to the vast majority of them, this is one of the better ones.

3.0 su 5 stelle A good Phantom Phan book 6 marzo 2007
Di Dawn A. Skinner - Pubblicato su
I just gave a review on a terrible phantom book, and now one that was good, and kept kind of in the character of the original, though it was based more on the movie/musical than the original work by Leroux. It was a good read, in fact I finished in two days. I wish there was more of the personality of Erik, but it was decent. I like the fact too that she stayed away from the love child of Erik and Christine that everyone seems to be writing about.

I do still wish that when these books are written, that there would be more adherance to the original, wonderful Leroux book. But, at least he was still French in this one.

I would recommend this book. It is a great book to show the humanity of a disfigured, scarred man that finally got his happy ending.
