I read The Mussorgski Riddle some time ago, and I enjoyed its unique style and story, so I was looking forward to The Stravinsky Intrigue although I had to admit that the details from the first book had become a bit fuzzy and I'm not really acquainted with the ballets from Stravinsky that play a major role in this book.

At times I was a little bit disappointed with The Stravinsky Intrigue. While the story resembled The Mussorgski Riddle

First off, reading The Mussorgsky Riddle before this one is a MUST. I believe my review for that one is floating around here somewhere ;)

If you read my last review, you already know that I am a HUGE fan of Darin Kennedy and the second book in his Fugue & Fable series only solidified that sentiment.

Once again we find ourselves accompanying Mira Tejador through the music themed dreamscape of Anthony Faircloth's subconscious. The visit this time is far from the same trip we last took. For one, Anth

Every bit as well written as the first book in the series. This one definitely ends as a cliff hanger. The author explains more about this in the acknowledgements at the end of the book. As someone who enjoys folk/fairy tales and is somewhat familiar with the major Russian composers, this series has many factors that drew me to it and I have not been disappointed. Using a limited number of characters, Darin Kennedy is able to tell several stories against the backdrop of Russian music. TG for the ...more

**Disclaimer: We received a Kindle copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

The Stravinsky Intrigue by Darin Kennedy is the sequel to The Mussorgsky Riddle, and it doesn’t disappoint this reader of the series. Mira is back on the case once more as she tries to find the one who the six comatose girls in the hospital. Taking more trips into the Exhibition, she discovering that instead of having all of her old friends, she’s caught in The Firebird, The Rite of Spring a

Mira has to deal with Anthony's fantasies again, set to music of Petrushka, Rites of Spring, and more in order to rescue 12 girls and free Thomas from the snares of Anthony's mind. I felt this went on too long. It needed to say more in the beginning about where it came from as a second volume. Parts of it I just scanned.

After I finished reading "The Mussorgsky Riddle" by Darin Kennedy, I hoped there would be a sequel, because I had fallen in love with the characters of Mira Tejedor, a psychic, and Anthony Faircloth, a traumatized teenager whose descent into the recesses of his own mind was so deep that only a person with Mira's gifts could bring him back. I got my wish when Kennedy published "The Stravinsky Intrigue."

Returning for another imaginative romp through the mysteries of hijacked minds were Mira, Anth

Kennedy fuses the archetypical symbolism of Stravinsky’s music with the individuality of modern life to create a tale of psychological exploration that is neither lacking in mystery nor overwhelmed with obscure metaphor.

This novel is the second volume in the Fugue & Fable trilogy. As such, this review might contain some spoilers for The Mussorgsky Riddle.

Nine months ago, psychic Mira Tejedor rescued Anthony Faircloth from a trap built from his own mind; and fell in love with Anthony’s psychologi

This was the sequel to The Mussorgsky Riddle (TMR) which I've already reviewed and I have to say the first book in the series was better. This book starts nine months after the events of The Mussorgsky Riddle and though it follows a similar pattern of events, the character development of the fantasy element in TMR was much better done. I would still recommend this book though, as it does pick up toward the end and the third installment, The Tchaikovsky Finale, looks to be the best yet. Heavily r ...more
