He was stunning.
He was an inspiration.
He was ruthless & vengeful.
Apollo was pure bliss and pure sorrow but nothing in between.
As always, O’Connor delivers a great narrative based on his research and artistic style. But in this collection, I especially enjoyed the creative use of episodic stories from the point of view of seven of the muses themselves. In doing so, O’Connor creates much needed distance between the reader & the nearly unknowable & tragic Greek God, Apollo.
The unique narrative style makes this addition both enjoyable and solid stand alone book. When viewed from a lens within the series, I will be interested in seeing how these tales contribute to the overall flow of the series after it’s all said and done!
May Apollo’s stories shine brightly for readers everywhere!
