Dark Musicals trilogy + giveaway

Buenos días a todos mis arrebatadores :o) Como me encanta todo lo que esté relacionado con el fantasma de la ópera, y otros musicales, me dejé llevar por el capricho y me apunté a esta promoción. Lamentablemente, el sorteo asociado es sólo para Estados Unidos así que si sois de allí, welcome, si no, al menos hablaremos de esta trilogía tan curiosota.

La protagonista de Phantom siente gran atracción por esta obra musical, la cual se celebra en su instituto como parte del proyecto del club de interpretación, pero con desastrosas consecuencias. Mientras se debate en un difícil triángulo amoroso, un acosador utiliza las líneas de la obra como su tarjeta de visita. Los accidentes se suceden. Tom parece bueno, pero Justyn quizás se esté tomando demasiado en serio su papel de torturado artista. En Demon, la competitividad alcanza cotas peligrosas en la escuela de drama de Nueva York. Ahora el objetivo es conseguir el papel en Sweeny Todd, el barbero demoníaco de Fleet Street. Los problemas se acumulan sobre los hombros de Rebecca al tiempo que un violador aterroriza el campus. Finalmente, en Hyde, Rebecca tiene la posibilidad de participar en un musical de forma profesional, pero las envidias son brutales. Todo el mundo parece tener dos caras y el crimen acecha por todas partes.

Esta trilogía tiene una pinta fantástica, ¿no creéis?

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

Summary from Goodreads:
When Justyn and Rebecca set off to attend 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.

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

Margari dijo...

El fantasma de la Opera me gusta muchísimo. El libro lo he leído dos veces. No he tenido la oportunidad de verla en el teatro, pero la peli no sé cuántas veces la habré visto. Y esta trilogía no pinta mal, pero voy a esperar que salga en español y a ver reseñas.

Yo no soy de musicales, nunca me han llamado demasiado. Así que el libro tampoco me atrae mucho.
