"I really liked this book because it was a new take on Phantom of The Opera. I found it slow, but there were unexpected revelations spaced throughout. I think this book is amazing and one I will read over and over again. All in all I would recommend reading this book for any one who likes reading modern versions of fairy-tales."--Anonymous Reviewer
