For a muse like Lucianíel, one story’s end is another’s beginning.

In the wake of his author’s sudden death, Luc takes ownership of her surviving creations—four fantastical characters with tales yet to be told—saving them from unwritten lives crumbling around them and giving them a second chance at a literary future.

Luc finds that chance in the unsuspecting mind of Annabelle Iole Gray, a quirky teen with her head in the clouds, nose in a book, and imagination ripe for a brilliant muse’s inspiration.

Or so he hopes.

Neither Luc nor Annabelle, however, realize all they’ve undertaken. Even with a to-write list including accounts of a shape-shifting cat creature, gentle knight-in-training, vigilante skater girl, and a mystery boy smothering in unspoken fear, the most remarkable saga created between author and muse just may turn out to be one stranger than fiction.

Their own.

Wow this is a totally different style of cover than what I have previously had from J Taylor Publishing. There's the young girl on the cover who looks kind of like she has just had an idea. Which is also backed up with the light bulb above the girls head too. The bulb has a person dressed in a suit sat within it as if they are contemplating something. I'm not so keen on the font of the book title, it makes the title look mis-spelt. I do like the byline of "What the muse wants . . . he usually gets". That definitely gets my attention and get me thinking and wanting to know more about the book.
Then onto the blurb which gives us more detail as to what the book is about.
So would the cover make me pick up the book? Mmm its a hard one, maybe, maybe not it would depend on what else was around the book. I will honestly say it isn't one I'd immediately grab from the shelf.
Would I read it? I'm not sure it seems totally different to what I usually read which sometimes you feel like reading a totally different book to your usual genres. I kind of get the feeling I would either totally love it or . . totally hate it. Maybe I'll read and review it to see which it is.

  1. I'm rooting for "totally love it". Guess we'll both have to wait and see. (: Thanks for sharing, Jeanz!
