Nomination number fourteen — The Muse by Fred Warren (Splashdown Books).
Adult inspirational fantasy
Imagine you’re a writer searching desperately for inspiration.
Imagine that one day, you find it, but in a way that seems impossible, that challenges all your assumptions about reality.
Imagine if inspiration could be fatal.
Stan Marino needs a muse. He’s written himself into a corner…again. A shot of inspiration is all he needs to finish his story,..where is he going to find it? What Stan doesn’t know: Inspiration has found him, and it’s about to take over his life. Ripped from reality, he must lead a band of lost souls in a life-or-death battle with a merciless enemy.
Stan has found his muse, but will he survive it?
What others are saying:
- I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up “The Muse” – fantasy? Mystery? A buddy adventure? Turns out it’s all three. Fred Warren has created an entertaining tale that explores a familiar topic: Be careful what you wish for … The dialogue is snappy, the action is taut, and the family emotion is strong and real. I would highly recommend “The Muse,” and hope Fred Warren continues to give us more of the fantastic!
