I found this book to be very intriguing and interesting. Christine in the beginning was an annoying little pest, who kept want to go to Raoul. Erik really was so troubled and really beautiful as a character with a facial deformity. he loved Christine so much and her deceit and betrayal that was kept constantly in mind. Erik's madness before the books ending astounded me. Raoul was a complete jackass and a fop of a man! Their was a few plot twists that I did like and the Persian was so funny and cute!
Cant wait to read book two! looking forward to having this book in paperback!
Masque: Choices has come across tome as one of those novels which leave a mark after they are over. The market is teeming with Gothic novels, but this book stays above the rest and manages to capture your mind ,heart and soul. The love story between Erik, Christine and Raoul is a mix of passion, suspense, pain in the right amount. The characters are believable and the pace is fast and exciting. A book which will make you finish reading in one sitting!
I read this at the beginning of this year, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I recognized the story! I had read it a looong time ago on fanfiction.net, and when I checked to see if the story was still posted online it was gone. I was really happy to see this story again; it brought back a lot of good memories. I remember the author being super nice and responsive to reviews. The story itself is a very good re-telling and is very well-written. The tone is rather dark in places, but the story is always entertaining and immensely complex. I'm really excited to read part two. Really happy to have this book in my kindle collection!
