Hi   fellow  Snippeteers and readers.

Last week I introduced Terpsichore, Muse of the Dance. Apollo has commanded her to dance again for him, and has accompanied her on his kithara. However she knows there is something else he wants from her. (Slight rearrangement of punctuation to comply with 10 sentence rule)


DANCING WITH FATE

The remnants of her song faded and lingered for a moment in the crystal air. Terpsichore spread her arms in abeyance, then clasped her fingers in front of her, and stood for a moment in silence. Apollo slowly lowered his instrument and clapped his hands, smiling and indicating she should sit beside him. She bent to retrieve her lyre, before seating herself and gazed at him, trying to hide her curiosity. "You wish something further of me, my brother?"
For a long moment, Apollo seemed deep in thought and did not answer.

"Do you remember a land of mortals—a small country known as Cymru, the brotherhood, erstwhile called Cambria, or Wales as some would have it? You may recall the folk who inhabit it, who call themselves the Keltoi?”

Ah, the Celts. How could she forget them? "I do - they were a fierce and noble race, with much knowledge of magick and the hidden arts. 



BLURB
(Cover by Miss Mae)
When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost. But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way. Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.
