V.C. Birlidis' Muse Unexpected is a wonderful new fantasy dealing with a family of muses. Sophie's tragic love story, in my opinion, plays second fiddle to Birlidis' ability to give us lush descriptions. I simply loved the way he described Greece. It made me want to visit someday.
Don't get me wrong, this story is full of romance, action, mythological beings, and angst. I just can't stop gushing over the settings.
Birlidis is a new author to watch out for. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
