The gods never sleep...
As the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos lights up every room with laughter and smiles. But there are darker forces at work, and they want to snuff out her light forever.
Cooper Hanover is a hardworking paramedic who healed Lia after a fire, but something happened that day, something medical science couldn’t explain. And if he doesn’t figure out how it works soon, the next healing could kill him.
Lia’s smile and sharp wit tempt him to love again, and he’s not going to let anyone, not even the gods, take her from him.
The Prophecy - “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”
Hot doctors are awesome!
To be completely honest, I thought the third book was going to be the hottest book because it was about the Muse of Erotic Poetry and a firefighter. But if I was also being completely honest, I think Light of the Spirit had been my favorite so far!
The abilities of the first three Guardians were interesting--visions, telekinesis, mind reading--but I thought Cooper's ability was way cool. It seemed like a very serious gift to be able to perform a miracle during the fire in Breath of Passion (#3). Also, this book seemed like the preview of big things to happen in the Muses' story.. Whereas the first three books had been about the Guardians solely protecting their muses, this book had a lot more revelations about The Order and what the muses really were facing.
Let's take a look at the characters.
I loved Lia. She was literally a beacon of light. Even though it didn't make sense to Cooper that they'd find their way to each other, I thought it was quite clear. Yin and Yang anyone? I loved their weird dates; they were so adorable! And Cooper's grandmother as matchmaker? It was just too cute!
This book was really clever. While Cooper saved lives for a living, Lia's comedy also saved lives. They were more alike than they thought.
