A Phantom of the Opera retelling that deals with unhealthy relationships, the ability to heal and change, and learning when to say goodbye. A year ago, Christine was captured by her music teacher in New York and held underground for weeks. A kiss freed her body, but not her mind. Not long after he let her go, Erik made a resolution: become worthy of Christine's love. After intensive surgery, he now looks like any other man, free to walk out of the shadows - if he can bring himself to do so. Now, as Christine starts life anew in Minnesota to attend college, he finds her again. However, a changed face cannot erase the scars of the mind or spirit. Somehow, the two must heal - together or apart.
The novella sequel to Cacophonous Melody. A few years have passed since Christine and Erik last spoke. Christine, now a college graduate, has grown from a haunted girl to a woman with her whole life ahead of her...except she can't help but miss the man from her past. Erik has no intention of seeing Christine again, knowing she is better off without him. But while he has gained friends and an existence apart from her, his heart still craves his angel of music. One day, on the streets of Venice, they meet again. Is this fate bringing them together? Or will they separate once more, this time for good?
