Phantom’s Dance by Lesa Howard |Blog Tour Review + Giveaway|


Phantom’s Dance

by Lesa Howard

Publication date: March 1st 2014



Christine Dadey’s family uprooted their lives and moved to Houston for her to attend the prestigious Rousseau Academy of Dance. Now, two years later, Christine struggles to compete among the Academy’s finest dancers, her parents are on the brink of divorce, and she’s told no one about her debilitating performance anxiety and what she’s willing to do to cope with it.Erik was a ballet prodigy, a savant, destined to be a star on the world’s stage, but a suspicious fire left Erik’s face horribly disfigured. Now, a lonely phantom forced to keep his scars hidden, he spends his nights haunting the theater halls, mourning all he’s lost. Then, from behind the curtain he sees the lovely Christine. The moldable, malleable Christine.Drawn in by Erik’s unwavering confidence, Christine allows herself to believe Erik’s declarations that he can transform her into the dancer she longs to be. But Christine’s hope of achieving her dreams may be her undoing when she learns Erik is not everything he claims. And before long, Erik’s shadowy past jeopardizes Christine’s unstable present as his obsession with her becomes hopelessly entangled with his plans for revenge.






I'm not the typical author. I didn't always enjoy reading or writing. While in school, I found it to be a chore I'd just as soon skip. I would rather have been daydreaming, my favorite past time. It wasn’t until I grew up and didn’t have to, that I realized reading was fun. I soon discovered that reading fueled my daydreaming. So, remembering a short story I'd written in high school, I began imagining expanding that story into a book. Before long I found I had loads of ideas for not just the short story but other books and stories as well. Fast forward a few years, a lot of studying about writing, practicing my writing, studying some more, taking classes from people who knew what they were doing, studying and practicing yet more, and ta-dah, author! In the same way I had learned I loved reading, I learned I loved writing, too. It’s just that writing is a lot harder than reading.




Hello Everyone, Today I have a review of a book with a curious blend and a special essence. This charming book is a YA but anyone can read it I enjoyed the romance and likes adding mystery as well as moments of surprise and you never expected.

When I take this tour, I noticed that your abstract was accompanied by the striking cover. And it was a big surprise start to read it and see it was the essence of The Phantom of the Opera, but the author gave his own way and his particular stamp.

Phantom's Dance is the story of Christine and the way to act on the set of ballet Giselle, and the path that leads to it to relate to a mysterious arrival of Erik and sweet love with Raoul.

If you've seen a movie, read the story or gone to see the staging of Phantom's Dance, you know how they can become these characters, but as I said the author makes own Christine is adorable, sweet, naive and fulfilling her dream . As it should be, it's adapted the character at that time very well, has personal conflicts as any girl but she tries to see the bright side of life until it reaches Erik and could change all that .. but there is always a light, in this case there is a light of love called Raoul, he was very sweet to Christine. And that was really love at first sight sweet and romantic, and we see the innocence of love.

If there is something that I like in a character's psychological development of these and
Erik not without that rule. I love it and I must say it was my favorite character. Achieve wrap from the initiated and achieved the attention of your curiosity to know that path will end this character. And it is something I like too, such as it is malleable and unpredictable characters that can reach any point unimaginable.

I enjoyed this book and it was a big surprise. It is naturally sweet, and fantastic twists in the story that we hope that the author presented. It endorsed a history that is known by many and loved by others. And if you want to enter the story this book is a very good option. Or if you've already seen the story will love this book.
