"Night Magic" is a modern Phantom-like tale set in Connecticut during the years of 1968-1987. In this story, Erik D'Anton is a wealthy, talented architect and musician who lives in seclusion due to a severe facial disfigurement. Rather than a birth defect, Erik's deformity was caused by a tragic traffic accident which robbed him of both of his parents and any chance of having a normal life. Erik is now 31 years old, but very childlike in his vulnerability and loneliness. His life changes completely when 16 year-old Marisa Crane, the daughter of a business client, enters his life.

I really liked this sweet, romantic book. Other reviewers have commented negatively on the age difference between Erik and Marisa, saying that he took advantage of her. It seems to me, that because of Erik's fragile emotional state and insecurity, in many ways, Marisa was much more mature than he. She was headstrong, independent, and determined to have him. She pursued him until he finally let down his guard and allowed her into his world, always fearing that she would ultimately reject him. This quotation from "Night Magic" describes Erik's emotional fragility quite well: "And there was never anyone who deserved less to be hurt...never anyone less equipped to handle the pain."

This book could best be described as a melding of Beauty and the Beast with Phantom of the Opera. Marissa (Risa) Crane is sixteen when her father asks an architect colleague to redesign their house, and she meets the mysterious Erik D'Anton for the first time. Erik is a recluse whose face was destroyed in the accident which killed his parents when he was a child. Risa becomes fascinated with Erik and,as time passes, draws him out of his solitude. Their shared love of music and increasing love for each other leads to marriage when Risa's father dies after her 18th birthday. Although her love for Erik is deep, Marissa's single-minded need and pushing for a child almost succeeds in pushing Erik, who fears the reaction of a child to his disfigurement, away. This is light romantic novel with strong erotic elements that draws you into it quickly. This is a book that will lead to re-reads for Beauty & the Beast/Phantom of the Opera fans. This edition is well-formatted for reading on the Kindle.

If you love the Phantom, this books for you. This is the second time I've read it. All the romance with none of the murder. It is a little dated now, but still fantastic. The only downside is that it's not properly formatted for kindle. Still very readable.

I adore this book and I adore Erik. I bought a hardcover copy because my paperback copy was falling apart and showed obvious signs of being well loved. Since I knew this book would continue to be reread many times buying a hardcover copy was a wise investment for me. This story has a phantom of the opera and beauty and the best nature to it. It is about a young girl falling in love with a disfigured hermit and their story. She helps him learn some life lessons as well as learning a major lesson herself. I would recomend this to people who are suckers for a good romance story without any real plot.

I've read almost every POTO sequel there is. Plus I enjoy books on the same theme of "Erik" and how he lived. Now I have added this to my collection. It's a wonderful book with a great story. It's a real page turner and I cannot imagine anyone NOT enjoying it. It is one of my favorites now.

I wanted to love this novel, but I just could not make myself finish reading it. Something just didn't work for me and for some reason I found the Christine Daae character to be really annoying and unrealistic for a teenager, even one who lived in the late 60s early 70s.

I personally would not recomend it. If you want to read a Beauty and the Beast story, I would recommend "Beastly" by Alex Finn.
