Loved this story so much!
Having read the entirety of this story, I can honestly say you have an absolute gift with words and creative writing. I fell head over heels into 1870's France and into the Opera Populaire and when the story ended, I wasn't sure that I had returned to reality.
Read the story now
The plot was very engaging from start to finish and the emotions were real. Out of all of the Phantom stories that I have read, your's is honestly the best and I keep coming back to it because it is my absolute favourite.
Having said that, the characters come to life, especially Erik/Phantom, who has to be my favourite literary character. You wrote him true to character and in a deep and complex way that keep me wanting more of him in each chapter. The same goes for all of the characters that Kayla interacts with including Raoul. You captured his character and made me love to hate him in a way that I hadn't before.
Thank you for this absolute gem of a story. If you ever publish it, I will likely purchase a copy and I don't say that very often, if ever.I meant to write a review a long time ago for this story, but never got around to it. I really enjoy this story and can't wait for an update on this story.. As a long time fan of Phantom of the Opera, this story does justice to the original source!
Also, I really like the cover art of the Opera Populaire, moreso than the roses that used to grace the cover!
