If you haven’t been following my reviews of Jeffe Kennedy’s serial novel Master of the Opera, you may want to back to my thoughts on Act 1. I’ve been trying to avoid getting too spoilery while reviewing each section, but by Act 5, it’s hard not to give things away that happened in previous sections.
In Act 5 of Jeffe Kennedy’s serial novel Master of the Opera, shit starts getting supernatural. Christine realizes that the Master is not quite human (by which I mean he’s a Native American spirit bear), and she participates in a ceremony to restore some of his former power. When the ceremony ends and she is about to leave, he makes a statement about her being both his savior and his captor.
Of course, Christine still hasn’t been able to break it off with the hot/psychotic/abusive/asshole/shitbag Roman Sanclaro, and it turns out that his family is involved with all of the paranormal stuff too. They seem to be the ones that keep the Master bound, and the one in control of him has to be a female, otherwise the family fortune will suffer. Right now, the family fortune is suffering, so they’re eager to try to control Christine and force her into that position. But Christine finds allies in unlikely places, and she’s determined not to let the Sanclaros win.
I’m liking the fact that it’s quite evident by now that Roman and the Master aren’t just new versions of their counterparts from Phantom. That’s a good thing, because a bunch of crazy stuff is about to happen, and I like not being able to predict how it’s gonna play out. Will Christine go along with Roman’s plans and then change everything and free the Master at the last minute? Will she let the cops help her? Will she run away, or do something different? Can she free the Master and still maintain a relationship with him, or will he go back to the spirit world? Will they all live happily ever after?
Even though this post is going live in late March, I’m sitting here writing it two days before the final Act is released, and I’m having a very difficult time being patient. I need to know what happens next!
