Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Phantom - Susan Kay

My Netgalley binge is helping me to savour this one slowly. It's... It's a magical read.


The author only ever wrote two books and I've already read the other one. She has captured Erik in words even more than the musical captured him in song. Such enchanting reads are few and far between.
