Blurb: What could you create if you fell in love with a Muse?
16-year-old musician, Sylvia Baker, has always been different. She’s the only one who can see the “flickering people.” When she sees a gorgeous flickering man named Vincent, she learns that they are Muses.
With his help, she finds herself creating exquisite songs that she loves almost as much as songs by her favorite bands–Radiohead, M83, and The Black Keys–and she is falling in love in a way she never knew was possible. While trying to maintain her newfound friendships and her band, she falls deeper into the world of the Muses.
When the original Greek Muses wake to find a world in which the internet has given everyone the tools to be an artist, a battle between traditional and new methods of creation ensues. As Sylvia discovers how she is connected to the world of the Muses, she learns that this war may put her music, her love, her very life at stake.
Review: This was an interesting read, a bit different from the other ghost relationship books I’ve read, very good plot idea on the Muses but I don’t think the execution was pulled off very well. Well, unless it’s supposed to be written very simply for teens.
I just couldn’t get lost here. There were a few sentences that seemed like they didn’t belong and everything was a little abrupt.
There didn’t seem to be any emotion in the writing even though emotion seemed to be the running theme here in this book. I didn’t really feel anything for the characters and I mainly finished the book to see what would happen.
Now, I liked the idea but some passages seemed to repeat themselves and I just found myself saying “come on” and trying to get it to hurry up to the next scene. I do like the cover art though, even if it doesn’t really match up with the story.
I would recommend this to teens and those looking for a simple read.
Thank you for reading my review.
