Caught in a web of secrets and lies, Christy Davis has come under the suspicion of the local police. Since becoming an intern at the Sante Fe Opera House, she has witnessed strange occurences in the underground tunnels. She has heard inexplicable whispers in the shadows after midnight. And she has found the lover of her dreams in the masked man who lives down below. But after the discovery of a dead body and other sinister events, Christy realizes that her life is in danger. Two men hold her fate in their hands: Roman, the opera house’s wealthy benefactor who uses his money and power to control her. And the masked maestro known as the Master who demands her surrender and commands her pleasure with each stroke. Both want her;only one can have her. . .
In a rising crescendo of madness, obsession, and lust, Christy must take a chance and follow her heart—to a breathtaking climax as powerful as love itself.
Worldbuilding: In the final installment of the serial, we get to see some more of the Santa Fe Opera and some awesome paranormal elements. Totally in love with the diversity of paranormal/fantasy going on in the world of this serial.
Characters: Christine finally grows in a way that compels me to call her that instead of Christy. I loved to see her make sense of herself and the world(s) around her, and the blend of instincts and smart thinking make her a definite favorite for. I was glad to see other characters grow too, like her dad, and some of the Sanclaros too in fact.
Of course, my favorite remains the Master, though he starred less than I’m used to in Jeffe Kennedy’s stories. Definitely awesome character though, and the chemistry between him and Christine was delicious all the way.
Plot: Not only does the romance reach a happy ending (and I was fidgeting at one point there wondering if it would, but I trusted Jeffe Kennedy until the very last page and she delivered as she always does), but the mystery part of the story is also resolved. Honestly, I didn’t see it coming, I mean the murderer (won’t be named and spoil it for you guys) wasn’t who I thought it would be – cool!
Writing: As with the rest of the parts, third person narrative from Christine’s POV. Since this is the end of the whole story, I’ll say I’ve deeply loved the imagery all through and the way Jeffe Kennedy built and kept the tension going from part to part was totally awesome.
Curb Appeal: Awesome cover, instant buy author name – total impulsive buy material.
All in all, I felt this serial was a great read and I totally recommend it if you’re into paranormal / fantasy elements and awesomely hot romance. There’s some super-awesome imagery going on in this story as a whole and this is a definite must read if you’re into creative, original romance stories. Trust Jeffe Kennedy to make your toes curl and butterflies flutter in your tummy and keep you biting your lips. Master of the Opera is an awesome read, and now you can get it all and read it one go, so I say go for it!
