Queen of Egypt is book 1 in a new series set in 18th Dynasty Egypt in a world where the old gods have been worshipped for thousands of years and magic is a matter of belief.
When the seventh son of a seventh son is a bard, he can bring his words to life. Only nobody remembers how the magic works. This collection contains all three full-length Tales of Silver Downs books in one edition: Muse, Fey and Druid.
If you like lush historical backdrops, complex characters, and new spins on Celtic mythology, then you’ll love Kylie Quillinan’s fantasy series.
Grainne recognizes the power in the bard’s tale. Desperate to protect his target -- her new husband, Caedmon -- she makes a pact with one of the fey. Caedmon is whisked away to the realm of the fey and Grainne fears she will never see him again.
But Grainne isn’t the only inhabitant of Silver Downs with a secret. Eithne has fallen in love with a fey. When the fey boy stops coming to visit her, she knows something has happened to him.
The women set off in search of their missing loved ones, only to discover that mortals aren’t exactly welcome in the realm of the fey. Captured by hostile fey, they are sentenced to serve as slaves -- for one hundred years.
Eithne and Grainne need to escape, find their missing loved ones, and get back to the mortal world before the fey find them again. Because they know they won’t escape a second time.
Although this is book 2 in the series, it is written as a standalone novel. It is not necessary to have read book 1 first.
Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.

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…
