Book Launch: The Confessions of Christine Daaé (A Guardian of the Opera Companion Story)

Our author Cheryl Mahoney has a new novella out today: The Confessions of Christine Daaé. Readers of Cheryl’s Guardian of the Opera series will enjoy this companion piece, retelling the story from Christine’s point of view – and her thoughts and motivations are rarely what they seem on the surface…

Get your copy here!

This novella is currently only available digitally, although if you’re a paper book reader Cheryl intends to eventually put out a print collection with this story, the prequel and some extra goodies too.

For now, here’s a bit more about the story:

The Phantom’s story has always been one of intrigue and deception, of faces that don’t match the souls behind them – but it may not be the man in the mask who has the most to hide. Readers of the Guardian of the Opera series have already met this very unusual take on Christine Daaé through the eyes of Meg Giry and the Phantom himself. Here you’re invited to learn more than Meg or Erik could ever tell, as Christine finally shares her own story.

Starting with her impoverished childhood with her violinist father, through meeting the young Vicomte de Chagny, and on to the famous disaster at the Opera Garnier, Christine unfolds her true thoughts and feelings. Far from a helpless victim in events, in these pages you’ll find a Christine who knows exactly what she’s doing every step of the way. Why did she really take the Phantom’s mask off? Did she love Raoul or the Phantom? Who or what did she care about most? Read The Confessions of Christine Daaé for a look behind Christine’s carefully concealed mask.

Book Launch: Dawn Melody (Guardian of the Opera 3)

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.

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!
