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.
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.”

Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is definitely a story with a unique twist on Greek Mythology! Mel is the muse of tragic poetry, which I thought was a really interesting story going into the book. She is one of nine different muses whose ‘powers’ manifested at the age of eighteen. This is the first in the series and really sets up the mythology for next books.
After finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stars, detectives are called to try to find out what has happened. It’s here we meet Nate. I really liked the interactions between the two characters, they, of course, have an immediate otherworldly connection that they try to manage while dealing with the death of Nia. There was some good character development happening for both of them throughout. The story moves with good pacing as all of the mythology is introduced. A really great start to the series and a definite four out of five stars read.
Would I read again: Yes
Would I Recommend: Yes
