Fantasy Romance
** * ** 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.” ** * ** Callie O’Connor’s life has never been the same since the Muse of Epic Poetry came alive inside of her. Now she’s on the other side of the country, working as civilian psychologist for the Navy, and leading her Muse sisters in their quest to reopen the Theater of the Muses. But nothing could have prepared her for Hunter Armstrong. He’s a Navy Seal, driven, confident, and dangerous. And he plans to do more than just protect her. The gods couldn’t have picked a better Guardian. But as Hunter soon discovers, Callie has some skeletons of her own in the closet, and loving her could lead to his destruction.

Welcome back everyone, this week we’re back into the Muse Chronicles series that Rach Random Resources introduced me to last yr with a Blog Tour. I’ll be reviewing one of these books each month, with two Tamora Pierce reviews and a Time for Alexander review in between them.

Legend of Love is the second book in the series and I’m starting to get the feeling that each Guardian will have unique skills that JUST HAPPEN to align with the specific danger scenario’s the Muse ends up in. I’m getting this feeling since Nate is a detective and Mel needed a detective. This time, Callie needed a strong protective force that comes in the form of a Navy SEAL.

One of the best things about this story was that even though Hunter pursued Callie and kept asking her out, she didn’t just give in. She stuck to her guns and focused on talking to Hunter about their feelings and what was going on. While at the same time it didn’t feel like Hunter changed who he was, other than the natural progression of someone making hard decisions about their careers.

We also learn more about the Order of the Titans, what they are trying to achieve and the lengths they will go through to achieve them. I get the feeling that as I progress through each book we will learn more and more while also growing the little army against them in the form of Guardians who can work together to shut them down.

The one thing that kind of bugged me about this Callie’s Muse is that I couldn’t really see the relevance of her in this story. With Mel we could see her use her Muse’s powers throughout her story. However, with Callie we only get hints at it and more warnings and memories of her Muse’s impact to her life.

Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll come back next week for the Tamora Peirce’s next review.
