When JRR Tolkien is summoned to authenticate a recently-discovered book of Beowulf, events are set in motion that years later will unveil an imminent tragedy: The entirety of the world's art and invention has been inspired by a corrupted muse, who has implanted a series of codes within the works of history's most influential authors, warning of humanity's end and a new dawn of time.
This book never starts to get interesting. The author had an interesting idea, but clearly considers it more clever than it is. The writing is tedious and the characters two dimensional and uninspiring.
The description of this book was so inviting, but the narration ruined it. I will read the actual book instead.
