    For a Muse of Fire was too conceptual for me. In the main POV, I struggled with the amount of French sprinkled through the text. I never studied French, and I spent so much time looking things up I couldn't settle into the narrative or the characters. In the sections written in play fo...

    FOR A MUSE OF FIRE captured my attention--and held it--with its unique magic and believable characters. Jetta contends with family secrets and the horrors of war. The novel pulls no punches and is all the stronger for it. Many readers will no doubt love the letters, telegrams, and p...

    The initial set-up of the book was pretty confusing. There is a lot of terminology and a lot of people to keep track of. Although I liked the mash-up of French words in an Asian-style setting, I did find the storyline behind this blurry and odd, at times. I just couldn't connect wit...

    Actual rating: 3.3 - 3.5 ish? It's right in the middle of a "That was okay, I guess" and a "well, that was fun" rating. I don't know if it's just me but there was a lot to process when it comes to this story. For starters, the pacing was a bit more like an "up-down situation", where...

    DNF @ 62% I?ve been pretty good about not DNF?ing this year but I just can?t get into this story. It may be the format (audiobook) but I just can?t connect with the story or world building. I may try this in physical format one day but for now it?s a no. ...

    FOR A MUSE OF FIRE captured my attention--and held it--with its unique magic and believable characters. Jetta contends with family secrets and the horrors of war. The novel pulls no punches and is all the stronger for it. Many readers will no doubt love the letters, telegrams, and p...

    The initial set-up of the book was pretty confusing. There is a lot of terminology and a lot of people to keep track of. Although I liked the mash-up of French words in an Asian-style setting, I did find the storyline behind this blurry and odd, at times. I just couldn't connect wit...

    Actual rating: 3.3 - 3.5 ish? It's right in the middle of a "That was okay, I guess" and a "well, that was fun" rating. I don't know if it's just me but there was a lot to process when it comes to this story. For starters, the pacing was a bit more like an "up-down situation", where...
