About this ebook

A bard with an ability he doesn't understand. A wise woman with power she never wanted. Each has a quest and they'll need each other to succeed.

 

Diarmuid is not a typical bard. His tales aren't about hope and heroism, but instead they reflect the darkness he feels inside. When he inadvertently brings his imaginary muse to life, everything she knows comes from Diarmuid's melancholic tales. Desiring her own life, she leaves Diarmuid and sets out to live in the only way she knows how.

 

Brigit tries to be a good wise woman like her mother, but feels like she's wasting her life dispensing charms and cures. She spends her days longing for danger and adventure. When she encounters a fey and becomes the victim of a cruel curse, she gets more adventure than she ever wanted.

 

As the pair cross paths, they soon realise that the only way to succeed in their quests is to join forces. Together, they discover the true nature of Diarmuid's bond with his muse. While the world will never be safe with her loose in it, destroying her could have fatal consequences.

 

Muse is the first book in a series of historical fantasy novels set in Celtic Britain. For readers who like lush historical backdrops with a fairytale feeling, a fantasy quest and characters who fight their destiny.

Author

Kylie Quillinan

Kylie lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her pack of one husband, two dogs, and a cat. She spent most of her childhood wandering in fictional worlds but it was many years before she made the connection between her own made-up worlds and the written word. She will read almost anything but prefers a fantastical element, including magic, time travel and monsters.  She writes historical fantasy and is the author of the Tales of Silver Downs series (loosely set in Celtic Britain) and The Amarna Age series (set in ancient Egypt). Her other interests include canine nutrition, playing the piano, zombies and cocktails. She blames the disheveled state of her house on her dogs but she really just hates to clean. SWAN – the epilogue to the Tales of Silver Downs series – is available exclusively to her mailing list subscribers. Sign up at kyliequillinan.com.
