I was sent The Musician by Heloisa Prieto a while ago and the YA fantasy seems really interesting. I did start it last week, but have only gotten about 15% in. Keep reading for the synopsis.
Thomas has felt alone most of his life, his only companions the musical creatures that he can see but others can’t. Wealth, talent, charisma, good looks, and fame conceal the eighteen-year-old’s lingering pain following the loss of his parents. His music is his bridge to the world, and his favorite form of connection.
A chance meeting with a group of strangers leads to the eventual revelation of his magical musical secret-and there are those who wish to steal it from him. Soon the wealthy Dr. Alonso and his beguiling daughter, Dora, trick Thomas into joining a cult from which he may never escape.
When Marlui, a young Guarani shaman, senses the danger surrounding Thomas, she vows to protect him from Dr. Alonso at all costs. Can she rescue him, or will Thomas succumb to the advances of Dora and lose not only his heart but the powers that bring him joy?
The book seems interesting, but I’m somewhat of a mood reader and this wasn’t hooking me in at the moment so I’ve put a pause on it for now, but hope to finish it soon!
