Like a craftsman weaving the finest of Persian carpets, Etienne de Mendes propels the reader on an unparalleled adventure of Gothic horror and romance. Isidore de Chagny, world-renowned Noble prizewinning geneticist, has sent humankind on a disastrous evolutionary leap. The financially taxed governments of the world injected their common populace with his timed-death serum. People start dying unpredictably at younger and younger ages. Onto this intense stage walk Isidore's creations: Christine, Erik, and Torossian. Three kindred spirits brought through time by the scientific process of replication. Each grapples with forming an identity and a number of profound human needs. Rich political insights and cultural observations grace the daily reality of the trio. Our heroine endures imprisonment at the hands of militants desperate for a cure. Unaware of her peril, Erik and Torossian hunt for a vast stolen treasure and in the process manage to unearth an ominous ancient creature. Colorful, intricately detailed, and mesmerizing, this fourth novel in a series about the life of the Phantom of the Opera was penned solely to entertain.
