Vision of Virtue, the second book in the ‘Memory’s Muses’ series by Brey Willows is another successful fantasy romance/adventure novel. It’s set in the author’s world where immortal gods of all religions intermingle with humans in our modern day society. In each of these books, Ms. Willows has narrated the story of a different muse falling in love with a mortal and the adventures that happen because of that.
This is the story of Clio Ardalides, the Muse of History and Virtue, and Kit Kalloway, the lead reporter with a television show called Truth Spotter. Kit has a big problem with the immortals, and this leads to some major conflicts when Kit and Clio are forced to work together. That work also puts them into some pretty harrowing and dangerous situations.
I do love a good enemies-to-lovers romance and this is an exceptional one. There are sparks between these two characters from the moment they meet. At first those sparks appear to be from irritation since the two seem to be constantly at odds. Gradually, those sparks change into something else as the two continue to work together. The author did a wonderful job creating conflict and chemistry with these characters. The action and adventure parts of the narrative are exciting and perilous.
This is an excellent addition to the ‘Memory’s Muses’ books. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and will be looking for more in this series. After all, there are more than just two muses.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
