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 reflect the darkness he feels inside. When he inadvertently brings his imaginary muse to life, everything she knows comes from Diarmuid’s melancholic tales.
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.
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…
