Book Review: Muse (Descended from Myth: Book One)



Synopsis of Muse (Descended from Myth: Book One)

Brotherhood of the Guardians has existed for thousands of years to serve a single purpose: the protection of Talents, the mortal descendants of the original nine Muses.

Twenty-one year-old Daniel Lyoncourt has trained his entire life to join the Guardians. Daniel is prepared to risk his life in order to keep his Talent safe, but when he’s assigned to nineteen year-old Anna Saint-James, he discovers that his life isn’t the only thing he could lose. Anna has no idea how special she is and knows nothing about her abilities. He must teach her to control her gifts, keep her safe, and hope that he can find a place in her life as something more than just her bodyguard.

All power comes at a price. Like all Talents, Anna must one day make a choice: lose all of her powers, or ascend to a higher plane, leaving behind everyone she loves

Review By Katie McKnight

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Daniel Lyoncourt trained his whole life to join the Guardians. At the same time, he promises himself not to place the Talent he’ll represent before his family. His father placed his Talent before the family, causing his mother to suffer a great deal of pain.

His promises die the moment he lays his eyes on Anna Saint-James. Not only is she beautiful, she is not aware of her abilities. Daniel promises to protect and teacher her at the same time. He also hopes their professional friendship will grow into a romantic relationship.

I understand Daniel’s feelings toward Anna, because I experienced the same feelings the moment I started reading Muse. The characters drew me in from the beginning. While the plot was fast-paced and compelling, I forced myself to read slowly so I could savor every word. I was sad to lose these characters when I read the last page and look forward to Book 2.
