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 his shattered life. Are his daughter’s disturbing visions of the future a lifesaving gift, or a curse that will draw him once again into the shadowy world of dreams and imagination, back into a war he can’t hope to win?
Sequel to The Muse, contemporary fantasy for teen readers and older.
