We’re excited to share this new book with you!  This trilogy has been many years in the writing.  If you’ve enjoyed the first two, we’d love to hear about it, and we look forward to hear what you think of the conclusion.

For now, here’s a little more about the story in this volume:

With the Phantom of the Opera dead, Erik tries to discover what role still exists for him at the Opera Garnier—or if there is one. Sure that he can never belong in the outside world, he questions if he can still belong inside the Opera either. And also to wonder why it bothers him so much when Meg spends more and more time with the handsome Léon de Troyes.

Fighting feelings she’s sure she shouldn’t have for Erik, Meg tries to balance a friendship with him, a flirtation with Léon, and her dreams about a life beyond the corps de ballet. But even a ballerina can’t keep her balance forever, and events escalate as their fragile dance begins to fall apart. And neither Meg nor Erik suspect that Commissaire Mifroid—and Christine Daaé—may still have plans of their own.

It’s almost here!  Dawn Melody, the final book in our author Cheryl Mahoney’s Guardian of the Opera trilogy, will be out this Friday, December 4th!  We’re counting down this week with a new quote each day.

The Phantom has been on a character arc throughout the trilogy of very slowly letting a little more of the world into his life – or of venturing out into the world.  That doesn’t mean he’s comfortable with it, or always responds positively when Meg suggests ideas!

Dawn Melody Count-Down: 3 Days

It’s almost here!  Dawn Melody, the final book in our author Cheryl Mahoney’s Guardian of the Opera trilogy, will be out this Friday, December 4th!  We’re counting down this week with a new quote each day.

One of the major themes of the trilogy is being seen by others – “seen” in the mostly metaphorical sense of being recognized, known and accepted for who you really are.  Although with a hero with a facial deformity, literally being seen is a complicated thing for him too!  Erik asks Meg about this at one point in the third book, quoted below – but you’ll have to read the book for more context and how she responds!

It’s almost here!  Dawn Melody, the final book in our author Cheryl Mahoney’s Guardian of the Opera trilogy, will be out this Friday, December 4th!  We’re counting down this week with a new quote each day.

This is the third book in the series and Cheryl’s personal favorite, as the tension rises and character arcs reach conclusions.  Meg has been on a path towards claiming her own identity all throughout the series, and to feel less like a supporting character in her own life…but there’s perhaps still a few doubts to overcome before the story is over.

We’re happy to share this new book with you!  Stay tuned for the launch presentation video Cheryl will be putting up this weekend with more details.  For now, here’s just a little more about the story:

After the crash of the chandelier and the disappearance of the powerful Comte de Chagny, Erik’s refuge behind the mask of the Phantom of the Opera has grown more dangerous. Commissaire Mifroid has vowed to hunt him down, in whatever depths of the Opera Garnier he hides. Grieving the departure of Christine Daaé, Erik finds it hard to care about the policeman’s threat, and a slowly growing friendship with Meg Giry seems like only a minor distraction.

When Christine left Paris, Meg thought the hole in her life could never be filled. It only makes it worse that she’s known far too much as “Christine’s friend.” But conversations with the Phantom and flirtations with a handsome gentleman in the Dance Foyer mean the chance to seek a new role—and to stop feeling like a secondary character in her own life.
