VBT# Phantom's Dance - Lesa Howard


Review: Phantom's Dance - Lesa Howard - March 2014

Are you a fan of rendition stories ? Love remakes and modern variations of old tales from the past ? Lesa Howard brings the story of "The Phantom of the Opera" into the 21st Century as we meet ballet dancer Christine. She has always dreamt of dancing on stage in a production such as Giselle , but the thing is she gets performance anxiety but with a little bit of help she may just learn to dance a lot better and improve her ballet techniques. The story starts with the idea of a "phantom" hiding in the school as strange things have been happening from missing items to "accidents" . Soon though, Christine will learn the truth as she meets Erik - he lives behind the stage and Christine learns that he was hurt in a fire and therefore can never show his face and so the tale begins of The Phantom of the Opera. What starts out innocent though, will soon turn deadly as people get injured, and threats are made ? Can Christine exit stage left before she too falls prey to what the "phantom" is capable of ?
Find out in The "Phantom's Dance", without giving too much of the storyline away, this book was amazing and the perfect read for fans of "The Phantom of the Opera" . After reading this book , it has now made me want to go and re-watch the movie which I loved the 2004 version which starred Emmy Rossum.

  1. Hi, Paula. I'm stopping by to say thank you for adding Phantom's Dance to your review list while it's been on tour with Xpresso Book Tours. I'm relieved to hear that you, a fan of the movie, still liked my rendition. Honestly, I've been sweating it, worrying what devoted fans would think. But this review was great. Thanks again.

    my best,
