    It s been a while since I read any of Laura de Luca s work, the last time being the final book of the original Dark Musicals series.The first Dark Musicals are a clever play on genres Think of a murder mystery whodunnit based around the theme of well known theatrical productions in particular, Phantom of the Opera , Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street , Jekyll and Hyde , and A Christmas Caroll.What makes themappealing is that each story follows the lives of two high sch It s been a while since I read any of Laura de Luca s work, the last time being the final book of the original Dark Musicals series.The first Dark Musicals are a clever play on genres Think of a murder mystery whodunnit based around the theme of well known theatrical productions in particular, Phantom of the Opera , Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street , Jekyll and Hyde , and A Christmas Caroll.What makes themappealing is that each story follows the lives of two high school sweethearts, Rebecca and Justyn as they meet, fall in love, and grow into accomplished performers in their own right Of course, being a murder mystery series, their life s course is rather eventful and entertaining to say the least, and helps you involve yourself with the characters from the outset I would recommend you try those earlier stories before delving into Illusions , as it will allow you to appreciate what this couple have been through together, and how they ve ended up where they are Now to the current book Rebecca and Justyn are married Not only are they Broadway stars in their own right, but their eight year old son, Erik, is a musical savant with prodigious talent When they are invited to perform their new show, Phantom Returns , in Australia, Erik joins them, using the occasion to make his professional debut.Alas, the rose tinted tides of fate begin to stir, throwing up warning signs that shouldn t be ignored For one, Erik suffers a nightmare something farpowerful and profound than a simple bad dream In it, he is snatched away from his mother and father A premonition perhaps Lo and behold, the family arrives in Australia to find a young boy has gone missing What s , the bodies of women who have been strangled to death are turning up in one place after another Putting these events down to unhappy coincidence, the Hope Patko family forge ahead, determined that the show must go on.And it does, in the face of increasing danger that I won t reveal in detail here After all, you need to read the story yourselves Suffice to say, you ll be glad you did, for DeLuca skillfully entwines the lives of Broadway s favorite couple into the exploits of the characters they play betrayal and misunderstanding sabotage and threats revelations and tragedy It s all there, and , in an adventure that also weaves YOU into the plot and holds you there until the final curtain falls.An entertaining and enjoyable romp across the boards Don t miss it

    I am so excited to have another Dark Musicals in my hand I thoroughly enjoyed the original series I found the concept of following two high school sweethearts who meet, fall in love and immerse and grow in their chosen art through several harrowing adventures The structuring of Rebecca and Lord Justyn s real life story , the same as the musical they star in, was ingenious to me What a cool way to learn of the classics with new, fresh characters and events in the present day So yes, and ye I am so excited to have another Dark Musicals in my hand I thoroughly enjoyed the original series I found the concept of following two high school sweethearts who meet, fall in love and immerse and grow in their chosen art through several harrowing adventures The structuring of Rebecca and Lord Justyn s real life story , the same as the musical they star in, was ingenious to me What a cool way to learn of the classics with new, fresh characters and events in the present day So yes, and yes again to reading the new line of Dark Musicals that show Rebecca and Justyn still doing what they love, which is Musicals and they re still loving one another Also their extra bonus, having their son Erik join them He s a chip off the old block with his love for the theater But alas, this is no fairy tale endingJust when it may have seemed the couple could relax and live a normal life, they are thrown once again into danger, mystery and heart stopping events I still enjoy the threading through of the Phantom of the Opera within the current day story as well.Ms Deluca has a clear, crisp, mesmerizing way of writing Her passages suck you into the world that she s creating and you know longer feel as if you are a bystander watching events, but as a reader you experience what s on the pages The Dark Musicals has been one of my all time favorites and I encourage readers to check out the entire series

    Over the years, I ve become a fan of Laura Deluca, and this is her biggest book I ve read yet, but the added size only added to the story.The story flowed well and was hard to put down, but an added benefit was the style it was written in I enjoy the occasional musical, and throughout the story, the cast would break into the choruses or solos they performed in the current play just like in any musical Having the story closely follow the arc of the Phantom Returns was an extra bonus that really Over the years, I ve become a fan of Laura Deluca, and this is her biggest book I ve read yet, but the added size only added to the story.The story flowed well and was hard to put down, but an added benefit was the style it was written in I enjoy the occasional musical, and throughout the story, the cast would break into the choruses or solos they performed in the current play just like in any musical Having the story closely follow the arc of the Phantom Returns was an extra bonus that really shows the author s enjoyment of the play.The characters were highly engaging from top to bottom, though I have to admit I really had to feel for Rebecca s luck It s bad enough tragedy seems to follow her, but her decision making brings about most of her problems Through her eyes, we re shown what her decisions or circumstances do to others, which helped raising the rest of the cast into likability.Using the play as the backdrop, at its heart, this is a great, old fashioned detective story that really was reminiscent of Sur Grafton s Kinsey Millhone series and Jessica Fletcher on Murder, She Wrote.I can t wait to see what s next in this series
