“A Song for everything, and in everything, a Song. Muses exist to inspire creation, Sharee. It's what we do.” Werim and Sharee Swift, teenaged siblings living in an idyllic mountain village, have known nothing but the sweet song of peace. When that melody is destroyed and their village attacked by an invading dark Warlord, they discover that growing up can be a discordant tune. Escaping to find a nation steeped in turmoil, the two must learn to play their own song as counterpoint to the clangor of war. Will they grow to embrace their inner power, or be silently swept away by the savage horde? ~ + ~ Fates’ Motif is a full-length fantasy adventure, the first installment of a new series from author Matt Hofferth.
