Overview

In the first volume of the webseries Thalia's Musings, Thalia the Muse of Comedy and her eight sisters have been ordered by Zeus to leave their home on Mt. Helicon and move to Mt. Parnassus under the governorship of the god Apollo. When Thalia and Apollo raise a cursed nymph from the dead, Thalia starts to wonder if the Muses have greater powers than anyone realized. The Fates, threatened by this possibility, put her to a test.

But Thalia cares less about the Fates� games than the behind-the-scenes drama of the Olympian royal court. Why did Apollo kill the Cyclops, Zeus� minion? Why did Zeus give Apollo such a light sentence? And with the Cyclops dead, who will resupply Zeus� lightning bolts when they run out? Will Hera then make her move for Zeus� throne, or will she be too busy torturing his latest paramour? And what will happen to the Muses when said paramour is one of them?

I hope that it will one day turn into a major hit and be known as it deserves. This book is one of the rare works on Greek mythology displaying any kind of pathos or emotional continuity while avoiding the trap of rationalizing acts that are, at least, morally ambiguous. The characters are fleshed-out, most of them as flawed but redeemable and ultimately likable figures. Also, despite being deep and well-researched, it's hilarious, and full of crazy anachronistic people who somehow manage to rule the world. You never know when the tone is going to shift, making it really suspensful.

I have been following this book (and the sequel, Snarled Threads) as a webseries and I am so excited to see it finally released as an e-book! The Thalia's Musings series is very well written, with wonderful characters and a fun Greek pantheon setting. It is rather hard to define what genre it would be in. It is a mythological fantasy, but with a modern flair and sense of humor that reminds me of Jennifer Cruisie. If you are looking for good escapism you can't go wrong with A Snag in the Tapestry. - JL Kyne
