My Review:

Take Greek mythology, add a modern take, have murder, mystery and a handsome, protective Guardian and Lisa Kessler has the perfect recipe for another riveting series! There are nine Muses who have had dreams that led them to an old dilapidated theatre and each other.

One of them is Melanie Jacoby, and English teacher who is the reborn muse of tragic poetry. On returning home one evening she is shocked to find it in darkness. She shares her home with Nia, the Muse of Astronomy, who always has lights on throughout their home. Mel’s worst fears come true when she discovers her friend’s body at the bottom of the stairs. She calls the police but most of them seem to assume it is a tragic accident but Nate Malone, the detective in charge of the investigation has some strange experiences, visions of events that lead him to believe it wasn’t an accident and that Mel could be the killer’s next target. The scene is set for a great murder mystery with Greek overtones and romance, too.

Both Mel and Nate are great, with additional well developed characters with plenty of background information to encourage the reader to empathise with them this is an engaging romantic suspense that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I can’t wait to read more in this enthralling new series!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis:

The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

Melanie Jacoby teaches English at Crystal City High School. She’s also the reborn Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.

Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.

Mel is the next target.

The Order of the Titans are eager to bring about the return of the Golden Age of Man, and they’re prepared to kill the Muses to complete their mission. But Nate’s desire to protect Mel is almost as strong as his hunger for her.

And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.
