Book Review: A Secret Muse

A Secret Muse (Book 1)A Secret Muse by Mandy Jackson-Beverly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coco has always been artistic and independent, in part due to the tragic death of her parents when she was a small child. Her painting makes her feel close to her mother, who was also an accomplished artist. As she nears her 32nd birthday, though, she can’t shake the feeling that she is missing something, something that could give her some insight into her parents’ tragic death. Her brother has some connections through a secret society known as the Allegiance, but she wants nothing to do with them, believing them somehow responsible. Can Christopher convince her that they are actually helping rather than hurting? And can she accept their methods, not to mention their background?

I’m not usually a vampire novel girl, but this one grew on me. It didn’t start out with the modern sparkly vampires, but the big reveal seemed far more realistic than some of the classics too. I enjoyed the inner character development of Coco, and the fact that she struggled against her lineage to a certain extent. I’m interested in seeing where the series goes in terms of hunting the Big Bad, and learning more about the origins of this vampire universe.
