YOUNG ADULT FICTION / Romance / Paranormal
A steamy YA romance inspired by Gaston Leroux’s classic The Phantom of the Opera

Seventeen-year-old Stephanie Armand doesn’t believe in ghosts or spirits. Despite her six-year-old sister insisting a masked figure is hiding in her closet, and the rumors at school, Stephanie isn’t convinced her father’s latest renovation project—a crumbling Victorian mansion—houses the soul of a monster. So when the very charming (and paranormal-obsessed) Lucas Cheney takes an interest in both Stephanie and her notorious home, Moldavia, the supernatural and romantic activity escalates to an all-time high. But then there’s Erik—the dashing British boy, seemingly from another era, who’s taken up residence in Stephanie’s nightly dreams. A boy who may have something to do with the man in the mask, and the strange occurrences taking place at Moldavia.

STEAMY ROMANCE: Not since Bella, Edward, and Jacob has there been such an intense YA love triangle. Between boy-next-door Lucas and sexy Victorian musical prodigy, Erik there’s plenty of romance for readers to swoon over.

RETELLINGS: We are building Kelly Creagh as the Gregory Maguire of YA. Phantom Heart is inspired by The Phantom of the Opera, and her next book will be a similarly darkly romantic classic retelling.

NETFLIX ORIGINAL MOVIE IN BOOK FORM: Highly entertaining, tons of teen appeal, very readable.

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR: Kelly Creagh is the author of the Nevermore trilogy—which she wrote for S&S during the height of the paranormal trend. She’s a skilled writer with a knack for writing satisfying teen romance. Her backlist has an average 4.5 star rating on Amazon and BN.com.

COMMERCIAL, IMMERSIVE READ: The plot is pure fun and a straight-up candy read. It’s escapism at its finest.

TWO BOOKS SIGNED UP: Following up with another classic retelling in 2022.

Kelly Creagh is the author of the Nevermore trilogy, a contemporary paranormal romance heavily influenced by the life, works, and mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe. Nevermore (2010), Enshadowed (2012), and Oblivion (2015) were all published in hardcover by Atheneum and still enjoy a strong fandom and readership. Buzzfeed named Nevermore one of 21 Amazing Young Adult Series That Ended in 2015. Nevermore has been published in multiple languages and countries including Poland, Brazil, Germany, and Hungary. Kelly Creagh is a graduate of Spalding University’s MFA in Writing program. She teaches creative writing workshops for children, teens, and adults, and is a regular guest speaker and lecturer for the Louisville literary community and local libraries and schools. Kelly has also guest lectured at the SCBWI Midsouth conference and is a current SCBWI member.

Author Residence: Louisville, KY

Praise for Phantom Heart:

“With decadent prose, charming characters, and immersive world-building, Kelly Creagh deftly dances between a cursed past and a half-light present, transporting the reader through spaces and time on the wings of broken chords and bright melodies. At turns a haunting horror and a star-crossed romance, Phantom Heart emerges—as gothically stunning as a rose unfurling blood-red petals in winter’s stark white gloom—to reveal the beauty masked behind the macabre, and the rhapsody hidden beneath the silence.”--A.G. Howard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Splintered series

“Riveting and mysterious . . . a Phantom of the Opera–style love story that kept me reading!”—Katie McGarry, author of Pushing the Limits

“This modern take on a classic tale of obsession and redemption will captivate fans of gothic, and the story’s humor and romantic tension will keep them turning pages to the end.”--Sonia Gensler, award-winning author of Ghostlight

"Creagh’s supernatural gothic romance is a fresh, updated take on Gaston Leroux’s classic novel, The Phantom of the Opera. The world of the novel is hauntingly beautiful and evocative of the familiar tale. The plot is intriguing and the prose well-paced . . . The true ­delight comes with the characters, particularly the eccentric team of teenage ghost hunters, who bring both exuberance and comic relief to an otherwise dark narrative. Overall, the novel is an enjoyable read, filled with secrets, twists, and a surprising amount of heart . . . Fans of steamy supernatural romances should be first in line for this one."--SLJ

"Hand to readers who adore a juicy love triangle with gothic flair."--Booklist

"Romantic dream sequences are lush and swoon-y."--Kirkus Reviews
