Giveaway - Dark Musicals Trilogy by Laura DeLuca

Phantom


The “Phantom” was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses “Phantom” as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker who uses the lines from the play as their calling card.

Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her character, she is torn between her two co-stars—Tom the surfer and basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured artist.

Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn’t know who to trust, but she knows she’s running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is stripped away, will the twenty first century phantom finally be revealed.

Demon


When Justyn and Rebecca set off for the New York School of Performing Arts, they think their dreams are about to come true. To their dismay, they aren’t in high school anymore, and the competition is steep. Rebecca must compete against accomplished singers for a role in the production of Demon Barber, including a stunning Gothic diva with her sights set on Justyn.

It doesn't help that things keep disappearing from their apartment or that Rebecca's father refuses to accept that Justyn is an essential part of her life. Yet, all this seems minimal in comparison to the serial rapist terrorizing the campus.

Consumed by fear and obsessed with revenge, Rebecca and Justyn start living the story of Sweeney Todd—both on and off the stage.

Hyde


Rebecca Hope has looked death in the face twice and lived to tell her tale.

She and the love of her life, Justyn Patko, land a summer internship at a local dinner theater, performing the musical Hyde. While they are excited about their first paid acting gig, they soon find themselves surrounded by more experienced cast mates, jealous of their success. As if the tension isn’t bad enough, they soon discover that the business might be a front for something much more sinister.

When Justyn is accused of a crime that she knows he would never commit, Rebecca must decide if she wants to follow her head or her heart. While trying to prove his innocence, she makes a shocking discovery of her own.

Everyone has something to conceal in the grand finale of the Dark Musicals Trilogy. Rebecca has to look beyond the façade to discover the true Hyde or face her final curtain call.

  2. I have only got to read Phantom but I absolutely fell in love with the characters!! I loved all the similarities to the musical and how I really didn't know who it was until the end. I had plenty of suspects in my head but was surprised when it all came out. I loved Lord Justyn in every way! Not many people can stay true to themselves especially in high school but he never wavered. Can not wait to read the next two!!

  3. I've only read Phantom, and I loved it. Lord Justyn was my favourite character, he's completely secure in who he is and is a total gentleman. Becca was so relatable- the shy girl who breaks out of her shell to get the lead role of Christine. I was completely in the dark as to who the stalker was, and I was taken by surprise.
    Phantom is completely absorbing, and thrilling!

  6. I read and reviewed Phantom on my blog and I absolutely loved it. It is so different from a lot of other books that I read. I love the Phantom of the Opera, and this book plays off of it, without actually being a retelling. The end is so twisted, I couldn't see it coming. It was edge of your seat, and the characters Becca and Justyn are really well developed. I just started Demon and I still love them just as much.

  20. Demon - Laura has a way of modernizing a much loved musical while creating a cast of characters and a dramatic, mystic aura that has you in between past and present.

    Demon is a little darker to me than Phantom because Laura introduces a rapist and when we find out who it is during the big reveal I was as shocked as a reader can be and a little horrified.

    Great summer read with loads of suspense. One of my favorites for the year. I have a craving to watch Sweeney Todd now.

  27. Phantom - Now this may surprise some of my friends, but I really liked this book. I rarely give out 5 stars, but this book surprised me. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a gift in exchange for an honest review. The book is a YA book, but engaging enough (at least I think) for anyone older looking for an interesting twist.
