Publisher's Summary

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.

A dancing twist to Phantom

Where does Phantom's Dance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Overall highly on my list.


What about Kai Kennicott’s performance did you like?

At the beginning there were a few moments where the narrator seemed muffled and hard to hear. But after the first chapter all was well. She did a lovely job with different voices to distinguish different characters. She had a young girl sound to her voice, it felt as if I was listening to Christine talk. She did a wonderful job of narrating the story and not distracting from it, but enhancing it.

Fantastic Listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! I know some people who would prefer to listen and some who would prefer to read. Either way the story is fantastic. I prefer audio and was very excited to get to listen.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Phantom's Dance?

Every scene surrounding Erik. I really like him and his relationship with Christine.


Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott – was your favorite?

Christine! I loved her voice when I read this but somehow Kai Kennicott was able to add in an extra depth that I didn't achieve when reading the book.


Any additional comments?

There were just a few minor hiccups. The audio seemed to echo in some places. Other than that this was fabulous!
