As you know,
The Phantom Diaries
series is a work of fiction, loosely-based on the classic
The Phantom of the Opera
by Gaston
Leroux
. Those familiar with
Leroux’s
classic will see a thread of similarity in characters, types of characters, plot, and storyline. However,
The Phantom Diaries
is Not
The
Phantom of the Opera
.

 

As classics are oftentimes modified for the screen or stage, such as William Shakespeare’s
Hamlet
,
Romeo and Juliet
or any of his many plays,
The Phantom Diaries
is written for the young adult and older teen audience who generally enjoy reading fantasy and paranormal romance. While adults may enjoy reading this series, as well, the romance in
The Phantom Diaries
will test the boundaries of young adult edgy fiction, but would not cross over to those of adult romances. Edgy issues that are brought up through the characters or situations in this book are also addressed for teens and young adults groups and book clubs with the discussion questions available for download from my publisher’s website,
http://www.theedgebooks.com
as well.

 

A separate set of discussion questions are available for ladies get
togethers
or book clubs, which will address relationship, self-esteem, and more mature issues.

 

Hopefully, you will suspend reality and delve into the world of Eric, The Phantom, Annette, Chace, and Aaron for a while, where love and romance is capable, even for the unlovable.

 

Best,

 

Kailin Gow

 

PRAISE FOR THE PHANTOM DIARIES

 

Fabulously fascinating, engrossing and addictive.
The Phantom Diaries
by Kailin
Gow,
is an incredibly modernized and paranormal twist on the highly recognized story,
The Phantom of the Opera
. A first in a new series, readers will be hooked and aching for more, as the final page is read. Geared toward young adult readers, this is a story that will appeal to, not only its target audience, but to adults as well.

 

Complete with romantic twists, turns and entanglements,
The Phantom Diaries
takes the reader on an adventure of the paranormal, the search for dreams and righting the wrongs of the past. Kailin Gow's writing style is phenomenal and will leave the reader at the edge of their seat. As I was nearing the end of the story, I was so entranced, that the pages flew and time ceased to exist. Once I read the final words, I was ready to scream, for want of more. Needless to say, I was relieved to see that the second in the series is to be released at the end of this year.

 

Highly recommend to those looking for an amazing read, complete with the paranormal, romance, suspense and edge-of-your-seat plotting.

At first I had my doubts about this book, more because I didn't know if I would enjoy the topic seeing as how I usually focus more on fantasy books with vampires and werewolves and faeries etc. But once I began reading I was instantly intrigued.

 

It enveloped me instantly with mystery and questions.

 

Drama is at every turn and as the mysteries continue to unfold through the pages
this books
leaves you wanting more. When the ending comes and
your
hoping for things to turn out one way, your left with the craziest cliffhanger!

 

This book had me all the way through and I cannot wait for the next book for me to know what fate has in store for Annette.

This was such an amazing book!!! My heart can't stop beating after turning the last page.

 

I have completely no idea what is going on in Annette's head sometimes. She's so unsure of herself and that's what I didn't like about her. She can't seem to make her mind up between 3 guys. I mean, can she not see that Eric is so much
more better
for her than Chace and especially Aaron, absolutely hate him. Seriously, Annette, how could you fall for him!?! Eric really does understand Annette better and really brings out her dormant qualities. Whenever she's with Eric, I couldn't stop swooning during the scenes with them together. Honestly, the heat was literally coming off the pages as I was reading.

 

That cliffhanger at the end was just so heartless and very unresolved, argh. Like, the ending was up to me to figure out on my own. Thank goodness, there's a 2nd book but I'm
gonna
have to wait until October to read it, GOSH!!!

I don't know much about Phantom of the Opera the book, but I have seen the movie with Emmy
Rossum
and Gerard Butler. Because of the movie, I had to read the book. I did and I love it! Now about The Phantom Diaries, I'm usually a YA reader, so The Phantom Diaries fit that. Phantom of the Opera fans would LOVE this book because of the reference from the Phantom of the Opera book BUT you do not need to know the Phantom of the Opera story to enjoy this new story. The author does an amazing job honing this classic story into one for young adults and paranormal romance fans. I can't describe it exactly, but this is an amazing ride to an unexpected OMG ending. I'm not giving it
away,
you have to pick up this book!

The Phantom Diaries is an incredible story of love, revenge, and passion that can consume one's soul. Amazingly narrated by young Annette Binoche, the book's writing emerges you completely. I cannot stop reading until I was finished and yet I wanted more. More of Eric, more of Chace, and more of Aaron! The ending was incredible! WOW. Gow's next Phantom Diaries book cannot come soon enough. Phantom Diaries is my second young adult book from Gow, and she continues to weave some of young adult
fiction's
most imaginative and passionate reads. She is my new favorite author must reads!

I read the kindle version of this after I downloaded and read
Kailin's
other books Pulse and Bitter Frost. Oh. My.
God.
This isn't written like your typical romance novel, but romance and passion is gushing out on every page. I haven't read Phantom of the Opera. You don't need to at all. Actually, it can stand alone and be its own story. I highly recommend it!

I grew up loving The Phantom of the Opera and have dragged my family and friends to see it on Broadway more times than I'll admit out loud, so getting the chance to read Kailin Gow's new twist on my old favorite was very exciting for me. I wasn't sure what to expect but once I opened to the first page and dug in I couldn't put it down. It had all the old romance, mystery, tension and wonder that I was hoping for and have come to expect when dealing with this classic. Gow's writing was quick, relatable and not bogged down with unnecessary details or insignificant points of reference.
