Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
by Lisa Kessler
Muse Chronicles #4
Publication Date: September 18, 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Standalone
This is a brilliant series that I’m thoroughly enjoying by this highly talented author. I recommend reading the series in order as each story builds on what occurs in the earlier books – and it is a great series, anyway, so why miss any of it?
Cooper Hanover is a paramedic and in the previous book in the series he was instrumental in healing Lia and saved someone else – I don’t mean treating, I really mean healing. This saved the patient but had dire consequences for Cooper . . . . If he can’t figure out what happened or why he’ll be in great danger in future! Lia is Lia Youlos and she’s the young lady who is the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy. Her kind heart, ready wit and beautiful smile are enough to melt the iciest heart, even that of Cooper! However, there are still enemies out to thwart the Muses and Lia is one of their targets. Can Cooper open up to let Lia into his heart? Can Lia help him heal himself so they can move onto their HEA? Can they save each other from the dangers and enemies out to kill them?
This is an action packed series, with well developed characters, an intriguing plot and is a superb, page-turner. I love how the series brings Greek mythology into an enthralling contemporary series. There are some great revelations in this story concerning the Muses and their enemies, The Order of the Titans. There’s more background information about one character that reveals more about their motives and these revelations are game changers for many. This is a fantastic read and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it – and the whole series! I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Devoted to Destiny, to be released!
I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of this book. This is my honest review after reading it.
The gods never sleep…
As the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos lights up every room with laughter and smiles. But there are darker forces at work, and they want to snuff out her light forever.
Cooper Hanover is a hardworking paramedic who healed Lia after a fire, but something happened that day, something medical science couldn’t explain. And if he doesn’t figure out how it works soon, the next healing could kill him.
Lia’s smile and sharp wit tempt him to love again, and he’s not going to let anyone, not even the gods, take her from him.
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.”
