with her best and most daring Phantom retellings to date As with the original Manifestations, I ll break this review down with a few comments on the highlights of the collection Haunted a previously unpublished story that was definitely a surprise Michelle crosses territory not usually covered and puts in it a bittersweet light The outcome is bleak, but she rarely leaves off without some ray of hope, and this is no exception I appreciated Erik s view on how faithful music always is to him, and yet it s still a cold comfort without Christine This line in particular got me But he beckoned insanity and convinced it to possess him to every corner and fingertip When she nodded and set her hand in his, it felt real, and he knew he was crazy and welcomed it Ordinary another unpublished one, another bittersweet one that ends with hope, and another of her famous filler fics This one flip flops the original obsession angle, putting Christine in Erik s shoes and makes him her obsession, which intrigued me right away The masquerade theme made this one, just as it made Monsters and Masks in the previous Manifestations, and Christine s earthbound angel costume felt perfect in the light Michelle painted the story I loved the imagery of an angel chasing Red Death across a crowded dance floor, and the story opens up some interesting questions about what it would truly mean for Erik to be ordinary Exquisitely done Captivated holy flying sheep in a ship wreck This one isterritory that is very, very, VERY rarely covered, and I give Michelle a standing ovation for going there Not many Phantom writers dare to, whether out of blind love for the characters or fear of backlash from readers, and it s about time we took the blinkers off There s some intense moral complexity in this oneErik s actions as a captor are, on the surface, despicable, and yet his motivations are desperate enough to inspire pity The decisions he makes are appalling, and yet there is always the chance of redemption in his love for Christine And in the end, it s love and nothing less that matters Love through desire, and desire through loveyes, you can read between the lines and tell that this one definitely isn t for the faint of heart But if you like steamy, kinky stuff, forget Fifty Shades of Grey Don t even give it a thought This is what you should be reading Forget Me Not an amnesia story, as you might have guessed from the title, and one of the most haunting Michelle has ever written, in my opinion A classic fanfiction twist, and I have to call this one my favorite rendition If Ordinary and Haunted are bittersweet, then this one is doubly so Again, Erik s actions are deplorable, but his motives still drive it home This is a man desperate for his beloved to love him in return, and it drives him to do desperate things This one is probably the most tragic Michelle has ever written, because it might have ended happily If not for another lie, it would have I don t really blame Christine for her reaction, but my heart still breaks A Twist In My Story an oldie, but a goody I love angry Christine You never see enough of her in other retellings, as most authors opt for the bland, one dimensional airhead thanks a freaking lot, Webber Christine as Leroux wrote her had backbone, and she was rightfully furious that Erik had deceived her by pretending to be the Angel of Music, and I m so glad Michelle explored that aspect in greater detail It hurts to see him trying so hard to make up for the lie and getting nowhere, but I m 100% on her side in this one It takes a monster to manipulate someone like that, and his further actions do nothing to atone for it Under close examination and after deep thought, I m going to call this one my favorite of the book Nice psychological insight, andof the music that binds these two together, no matter how irritated Christine is by that simple fact Brava Let It Bleed no, wait, this might also be a contender for the favoriteToo many people shy away from an Erik that s this aggressive, but I love it His duality is summed up perfectly here, with anger and rage followed by tenderness and repentance and topped off with a little of his trademark self loathing The aspect of the original story that always attracts me is the symbolism of mirrors, and Michelle uses it to good effect here She brings her story full circle, from a monster reflected in a mirror to a man in need of forgiveness and understanding and back to his determination to be a monster if it means he can have the woman he loves Christine s line from the musical comes to mind It s in your soul that the true distortion lies Erik in a nutshell So, bottom line if you like The Phantom of the Opera and you want , you need to give this one a shot Everyone is guaranteed to find something to love here, and definitely something to think about The face doesn t make the man It s what s in his heart and the choices he makes that reveals a flawed but beautiful human being A worthy addition to any Phantom collection, and I m already eager for a third volume

    Just as good as the previous volume I was scared that it would become repetitive But Rodrigues comes with a fresh idea and take for every story.
