He’s a melancholy bard. She’s expecting to settle into a boring and predictable life. They’re the world’s only hope against a nightmare…


Diarmuid is hardly a typical bard. Instead of composing cheerful ballads, he shares cautionary tales that reflect the darkness he feels inside. When his muse comes to life, she sets out to live life in the only twisted way she knows how.


Brigit tries to be a good wise woman like her mother but feels like she’s wasting her life peddling charms and cures. When she encounters a fey and becomes the victim of a cruel curse, she gets more adventure than she ever wanted.


As the pair cross paths, they soon realise that the only way to succeed in their quests is to join forces. Together, they discover the true nature of Diarmuid’s bond with his muse. While the world will never be safe with the creature on the prowl, destroying her could have fatal consequences…


Muse is the first book in a series of Celtic-inspired epic fantasy novels. If you like lush historical backdrops, complex characters, and new spins on Celtic mythology, then you’ll love Kylie Quillinan’s engaging series starter.

About the author

Kylie lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her pack of one husband, two dogs, and a cat. She spent most of her childhood wandering in fictional worlds but it was many years before she made the connection between her own made-up worlds and the written word. She will read almost anything but prefers a fantastical element, including magic, time travel and monsters. 


She writes historical fantasy and is the author of the Tales of Silver Downs series (loosely set in Celtic Britain) and The Amarna Age series (set in ancient Egypt). Her other interests include canine nutrition, playing the piano, zombies and cocktails. She blames the disheveled state of her house on her dogs but she really just hates to clean.


SWAN – the epilogue to the Tales of Silver Downs series – is available exclusively to her mailing list subscribers. Sign up at kyliequillinan.com.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
