The Muses: Vengeance of Time
Sarah and Nickolas have been home just over a week and are still recovering from their adventures at their Great-Aunt Vivian’s manor. They are ready to settle into the daily routine of ranch life, but trouble has found them again. Their cousin Simon is suffering from the after-effects of the experiments Great-Aunt Vivian performed on him. While he appears to be six years old, Simon is actually in his fifties. Now that he has left the manor, he doesn’t have access to the specialized food that Great-Aunt Vivian administered to him to stall the aging process. He’s aging more rapidly than his body can accommodate. It’s up to Sarah and Nickolas, with the aid of the Muses, to find a cure for him.
In the meantime, the Muses are struggling with problems of their own. Their cousin James has violated the rules of being a muse spectacularly and is conducting widespread illegal experiments. The Muses are just beginning to discover his deception, which could very likely lead to all-out war among their brethren. The Muses must uncover James’s plan while finding a way to help those whose lives have been stalled by experiments with aging.
The Muses: Vengeance of Time is a sequel to The Muses: Escape from Montague Manor, and it would be best to read the books in order. The plot of Vengeance of Time relies heavily on events from the first volume and refers frequently to characters who were introduced previously. Once I got up to speed on the back story, I really liked Sarah and Nickolas and enjoyed cheering them on. They’re resourceful and plucky with abilities that I expect will be explained in later works. The supporting characters were also fun to follow, particularly the staff at Montague Manor. With an entertaining plot and an interesting premise, The Muses series will be a hit among the preteen crowd.
