Wynter, like the heroes of old, is undertaking an epic journey. She isn’t seeking a holy grail or trying to slay the Nemean lion (which is just as well as Hercules has already finished him off) but instead is trying to reform herself. She gains a mentor, allies, enemies, possible love interests and meets all sorts of weird and wonderful people along the way to becoming a successful muse.

I’m doing things backwards as I reviewed the latest, Fairies in My Fireplace, before the first. Zoey used to have nightmares of a monster in her closet when she was growing up but dismissed them as fantasy. Twenty-three years later her closet monster is back and he’s baking muffins. Really good muffins as it turns out. Things get much weirder though when brides she is planning weddings for become a predatory incubus’ victims and start dropping dead.
I’m going to start this review by confessing that I’m biased. I love this series. It’s underlying sweetness radiates outwards and gives you the warm and fuzzies. Zoey Donovan is having a wee bit of trouble at home. The Hidden have invaded her house in large numbers with tales of friends and family that have gone missing. As Zoey’s the only Aegis left, they are looking to her for guidance and protection. Someone is hunting them and Zoey’s determined to put a stop to it.
