So… this is the second review for The Mussorgsky Riddle, and again this was a new experience. NetGalley is a site that allows reviewers, both amateur and professional, to get free e-copies of a new book and leave a review. The fine people who come to NetGalley agree to leave honest reviews on sites like Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, etc. in exchange for the opportunity to read your book for free. This review from Mallory Heart Reviews is my first NetGalley review. I’m so glad they enjoyed the book, but even more so that the book led them to enjoy the original music, as that’s what led me to write the book in the first place.
Excerpt from the review:
What an enchanting story!! Educational, absorbing, paranormal, classical, mythical–with soul-stirring, soul-consuming depths, THE MUSSORGSKY RIDDLE Is lyrical, empathetic, literary; and because of it, I developed an affinity for the classical music at its heart–specifically Mussorgsky’ s PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION, and its contemporary reprisal, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer’ s version of it, also Mussorgsky’ s NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN. (Next, Grieg’ s IN THE HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING.)
Four weeks out today, and counting! The Mussorgsky Riddle is almost here!
