10th Muse

 10TM   (Image, 2000-2002)

™ and ©2000 Darren G. Davis and Adam Rotenberg

The 10th Muse revolves around Greek mythology’s nine Muses—the daughters of Zeus who provide insight and inspiration to lowly humans. It seems that the lost tenth Muse has appeared in modern day San Francisco, but she doesn’t really know it yet. Allow me to explain.

Emma Sonnet mysteriously disappeared five years ago during a summer trip to Greece meant to celebrate her graduation from law school. Just as mysteriously, the woman resurfaces as San Francisco’s newly appointed district attorney. Battling evil in the courtroom by day, at night Sonnet fights crime as the Muse.

Enter billionaire industrialist Grayson Bishop—a man who is charming and at the same time as deadly as a cobra. For some strange reason, the villain’s destiny is intertwined with the Muse’s and he wants her dead. Not only does the super-powered beauty need to figure out how she came about her “god-like” abilities, but she must do so while fighting off the attacks of the evil Bishop.
