Product description

Review

Burton's multi-layered story is never less than engaging . . . she has an undoubted gift for seizing the reader's attention and holding it . . . powerful . . . genuinely surprising (Sunday Times)

Deftly plotted, a masterclass in pacing, tension and suspense, and richly characterised . . . exquisitely written, evocative and suspenseful (Sunday Express)

Those who loved The Miniaturist will find here all the cliffhangers, twists and heart-stopping revelations they expected, and in two evocative settings . . . as a study of female creativity, it triumphs (Daily Telegraph)

Burton clearly has a way with words, crafting masterful, complex and atmospheric mysteries that keep the reader hooked right up until the very last page. The Muse is a brilliantly realised story and the parallel narratives are perfectly balanced, propelling the story forward at breakneck speed . . . An exhilarating read, Jessie Burton can expect more awards to soon be coming her way (The Herald)

Tremendous vitality . . . her craftsmanship and surefooted prose ensure a satisfying conclusion (Daily Mail)

Rich and gripping . . . excellently explores the writing process itself . . . Burton breathes life into her words (Independent)

An intricate story of imposture . . . strong on the emotional and sensual . . . who would bet against it selling a million copies like its predecessor? (Guardian)

Readers who enjoyed The Miniaturist won't be disappointed (The Times)

Richly atmospheric and engrossing . . . you'll turn the pages feverishly (Daily Express)

Impressive . . . It takes all the promise of The Miniaturist - the complex female characters, an entrancing mystery, a lush and evocative sense of place - and executes it with wit and style. My book of the summer (Elle)

Book Description

From Jessie Burton, author of the million-copy international bestseller The Miniaturist, comes a glittering, seductive and utterly enthralling novel about art, identity, and the hidden power within us all . . .
