Summary of Immortal Muse Summary of Immortal Muse Reviews for Immortal Muse An Excerpt from Immortal Muse
An immortal Muse whose very survival depends on the creativity she nurtures within her lovers…
Another immortal who feeds not on artistry but on pain and torment...
A chase through time, with two people bound together in enmity and fury…
Magic and science melded together into one, and an array of the famous and infamous, caught up unawares in an ages-long battle…
Daemon Heart is a tale that takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Paris of the late 1300s with the alchemists Perenelle and Nicolas Flamel, to contemporary New York City. Along the way, there are interludes with Bernini in Rome in 1635; with Vivaldi in Venice of 1737; with Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier and Robespierre in the Paris of the French Revolution; with William Blake and John Polidori in 1814; with Gustav Klimt in fin de siècle Vienna; with Charlotte Salomon in WWII France. And in modern-day New York, a complicated dance of love and violence finally brings a resolution to the centuries-old deadly feud.
"Action, adventure, character, humor and a strong philosophical base: Stephen Leigh does it all!"—Janet Morris
"A strong story about basic issues, about making choices..."—Tanya Huff
"Intriguing, deeply layered stories of assassins in love, war, life, and death. Highly recommended."—Garth Nix
"Leigh writes with an ornate, but very readable, style.... In this regard, [Slow Fall to Dawn] offers a better read than many contemporary SF novels twice its length."—The PorPor Books Blog
