A Modern Remake of the Classic!

Phantoms is an adult fiction that tells the story of Erik Destler, a latter day Phantom of the Opera. Erik sets out to take over and rule the Palais Garnier, with La Divina - Carlotta Caccini, as his queen, but he is thwarted by his nemesis, the original Phantom of the Opera, now the Opera Ghost. Phantoms is set in that same famous Paris opera house, amidst the staging of Verdi's opera, Macbeth, one hundred years on from the first appearance of Le Fantome de l'Opera in 1910.
