In "The Muse," struggling author Stan Marino went looking for inspiration, but found instead an ancient evil that cast him, his friends, and his family into a realm of imagination where almost anything was possible, and into a battle for their souls.
They won that fight at a terrible price, and now, five years later, "The Seer" finds Stan still picking up the pieces of hi

It's a good sequel to the Muse, but the plot is kind of slender.

It's been about five years after the battle with the dark muse Leila in the first book, and the loss of Stan's wife Charity. Stan's daughter Hannah doesn't remember a thing of what happened, and Stan must deal with the ebbing presence of his wife as she is called by God to do other things. But Hannah is about to find that she takes a bit after her mother...

There's some neat twists and thoughtful details that I liked about the book.

"The Seer" is a worthy follow-up to Fred Warren's first novel, "The Muse." Fred is a great storyteller, and his skill is on full display here.

This time the focus is primarily on Stan (the hero from the first book), his daughter Hannah, and her new friend, Cassie. The first book had consequences that Stan and Hannah are still dealing with, which by definition makes the tone of this novel more poignant. Darker. Then there are those visions that Hannah is having...

"The Seer" was a lightning-fast r

In this sequel to The Muse, several years have gone by since the first book, and Stan and Charity’s daughter Hannah is now a teenager. She’s having prophetic dreams but doesn’t remember them until the last minute, just before catastrophe strikes. Meanwhile, Stan is worried about his daughter and about the dreams he’s having of Leila, the evil woman who tried to suck him and his friends into their own imaginations years ago.

As expected, this was an entertaining read. I enjoy Fred Warren’s charact

I fell in love with Fred Warren's writing a few years ago, after discovering several of his short stories. I bought his first novel, The Muse, and was not the least bit disappointed. The Seer is a strong continuation of the story, where we get to delve deeper into the dream world introduced in The Muse, and we also get to really know Stan's daughter, who is having visions of the future. Yes, this book is a bit darker than the first, but it's still beautifully written and true to Fred's unique st ...more
