    Phantastic Phans know Susan Kay's work as one of the best telling of Erik's full tale. This book is worthy of being held up to the standard of both that and the classic that started it all. Erik here tells his story from early childhood to the beginning of the events in The Phantom of the Opera. It's woven as memories unfolded to his son with some trepidation. Trigger warnings? Yes, of course, OG was not born of a past full of sunshine and rainbows. This Erik is more human, less Gothic ghost.

Yes, of course, OG was not born of a past full of sunshine and rainbows. This Erik is more human, less Gothic ghost. The shift in personality allows for sympathy for the devil and the troubles he survives. There are some new twists and turns to this story, quite well done despite the mandatory suspension of disbelief for the artistic genius to have acquired so much knowledge so quickly. An example of the writing: "Erik backed another step and bowed. Christine would understand what the gesture meant as if he spoke the words aloud: As you wish, My Dear. My gratitude for your tender heart."

    Davyne DeSye took a classic novel and expounded it into a masterpiece of its own. Phantom Rising is the third in the series and wraps up a promise Erik had made to his son. Petter had known his father was the mysterious man behind the novel Phantom of the Opera, but he wanted to hear the entire story from Erik. So, Erik begins with the precious memories he has of his mother. With his grotesque deformity, Erik’s life is never easy, and he has to hide his face from most people. His travels introdu Davyne DeSye took a classic novel and expounded it into a masterpiece of its own. Phantom Rising is the third in the series and wraps up a promise Erik had made to his son. Petter had known his father was the mysterious man behind the novel Phantom of the Opera, but he wanted to hear the entire story from Erik. So, Erik begins with the precious memories he has of his mother. With his grotesque deformity, Erik’s life is never easy, and he has to hide his face from most people. His travels introduce him to different languages, cultures, and opportunities. He is often mistreated and harbors bitterness in his heart. He has learned that riches were the only thing he could rely upon, because people just use him. Until he meets Christine, but can she ever learn to love him?   Phantom Rising is an amazing novel that showcases the author’s skill in research and creativity. Davyne DeSye carefully weaves her novels to coincide with the work of Gaston Leroux and his classic, Phantom of the Opera. She keeps the same mystique and adventure, while adding a reason behind his eccentric ways. Through a complex weaving of characters, circumstances, and fantasy, the readers cannot put this novel down. It impressed me with the details of the multiple places Erik had traveled and the cultural differences. This novel is full of diversity and powerful conflict that the phantom had within him. His personal struggles were just as strong as those who opposed his appearance. Overall, I was captivated with the author and look forward to reading more of her work. Review written by Peggy Jo Wipf for Readers' Favorite.

    Outstanding! I absolutely could not put this book down. The same with the first two books in the series. Get yourself a nice cup of tea, or a glass of wine. And a box of tissues! and settle yourself in for this masterful glimpse into the life of young Erik. Brava, Madame Desye!

    Ok, so I MIGHT be a bit of an ultra fan when it comes to Phantom. I stumbled on it in 1990 when the CBS mini-series premiered (if you haven't seen it, look it up on YouTube, it is AMAZING! Not a musical, but amazing!) and have been obsessed ever since. This book (I've only read the third one so far!!) wraps up the story of Erik in a wonderful way and gives you a wonderful look at his history and journey. It holds true to the original novel and also explores Erik's time in Persia in more depth an Ok, so I MIGHT be a bit of an ultra fan when it comes to Phantom.

This book (I've only read the third one so far!!) wraps up the story of Erik in a wonderful way and gives you a wonderful look at his history and journey. It holds true to the original novel and also explores Erik's time in Persia in more depth and in Susan Kay's Phantom. I loved getting to find out where Erik learned each of his talents and how he perfected them. A truly beautiful story. I devoured the book in less than two days and lost sleep (WORTH IT!) because I could NOT stop reading and get to sleep. You know how the story ends, but until you read the book(s) you don't know HOW Erik and Christine got to their happily ever after (which is a MUST for me!!). Going to buy the first two books in the series right now!!!

    Could not wait to read more, this book consumed me The history & adventures pulled me from the 2021 world of Covid & separation from friends into a complete understanding of the pain Eric lived with. Following him from a desperate childhood to manhood, to foreign countries & differing cultures always looking for acceptance. To imagine the life he lead filled many hours of my mind. My only regret is I never saw the movie, Phantom of the Opera nor read any other books on it , therefore the ending l Could not wait to read more, this book consumed me The history & adventures pulled me from the 2021 world of Covid & separation from friends into a complete understanding of the pain Eric lived with.

    I have never read anything like this at all. NOTHING. I loved how dark it was. It wasn’t even dark in the traditional sense of a dark book, but man, I’m impressed! I loved everything about this story, and I’m glad I gave it a chance and dove in blind after seeing the cover.
