For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Expected Date: September 25, 2018
Jetta’s family is famed as the most talented troupe of shadow players in the land. With Jetta behind the scrim, their puppets seem to move without string or stick—a trade secret, they say. In truth, Jetta can see the souls of the recently departed and bind them to the puppets with her blood. But the old ways are forbidden ever since the colonial army conquered their country, so Jetta must never show, never tell. Her skill and fame are her family’s way to earn a spot aboard the royal ship to Aquitan, where shadow plays are the latest rage, and where rumor has it the Mad King has a spring that cures his ills. Because seeing spirits is not the only thing that plagues Jetta. But as rebellion seethes and as Jetta meets a young smuggler, she will face truths and decisions that she never imagined—and safety will never seem so far away.
I absolutely adore Heidi Heilig’s Girl from Everywhere series so I’m super thrilled that she has a new book on the way. For a Muse of Fire sounds incredibly cool with it’s shadow magic and I cannot wait to see how the story plays out.
Are you excited for For a Muse of Fire? Did you read Heilig’s first series?
