Overview

Cassiopeia Vitt takes center stage in this exciting novella from New York Times bestsellers M.J. Rose and Steve Berry.

In the French mountain village of Eze, Cassiopeia visits an old friend who owns and operates the fabled Museum of Mysteries, a secretive place of the odd and arcane. When a robbery occurs at the museum, Cassiopeia gives chase to the thief and is plunged into a firestorm.

Through a mix of modern day intrigue and ancient alchemy, Cassiopeia is propelled back and forth through time, the inexplicable journeys leading her into a hotly contested French presidential election. Both candidates harbor secrets they would prefer to keep quiet, but an ancient potion could make that impossible. With intrigue that begins in southern France and ends in a chase across the streets of Paris, this magical, fast-paced, hold-your-breath thriller is all you've come to expect from M.J. Rose and Steve Berry.

I had some trouble getting into Cassioppia, but think it's because of all my time spent following Cotton. Maybe I need to look at the sexier half and read more about her.

Good read...would have enjoyed a longer story. Nice pace and interesting characters.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars I am a huge fan of Steve Berry! I was excited to see Cassiopeia Vitt, a secondary character in his Cotton Malone books, got a story of her own. With that being said, I wish THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES was a full length novel rather than a novella. Perhaps it’s best that you know, generally, I am not a fan of novellas. They always leave me wanting, simply because they are so short and, thus, lack the pages for a solid arc. This book was no exception. The premise of THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is interesting and enchanting. It’s an intriguing mystery with touches of history. Readers get action from page 1 — what begins as a theft of a unique artifact leads to thrilling exploits and political betrayal. This novella has a lot to offer but still had plot holes. As I previously mentioned, I was left feeling that this would have made a better full length novel. Certain elements just needed more explanation, and the story felt rushed at times. Can I just say, though, that as a fan of mysteries AND romance, I liked the unexpected steaminess! The star of THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is definitely the main character, Cassiopeia Vitt. I was no stranger to this character, having gotten to know her in Berry’s other books, and I am excited to see her in the spotlight. She is bold, determined, and fiercely intelligent. She has a lot of compassion, too, which you get to see in this novella. I am very much looking forward to more of her adventures in this series. Overall, THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is a good, fast read, that I would recommend to fans of Dan Brown. I’d also recommend that you check out Cassiopeia in the Cotton Malone series by Steve Berry. Trust me when I say that she is a fabulous character who you should get to know better.

The Museum of Mysteries by Steve Berry and M. J. Rose Cassiopeia Vitt is visiting her friend Nicodeme L'Etoile in the small Mediterranean Frech city of Eze, part of the French Riviera. A thief has stolen a valuable box that contains precious essences that can incite real past experiences. Soon Cassiopeia is immersed into an adventure that involves the ensuing French Presidential election and tales of King Arthur and Morgan de Fey. Narrated from Cassiopeia's first-person point of view, the novella -- which reads in a couple of hours -- is not Berry's best. The plot was too simple, I never identified with any of the characters. References to Cotton Malone abound but were more a distraction than an addition to the plot. Not Mr. Berry's best effort. I must admit that I have not read any of M. J. Rose's work, but, in my opinion, she did not add anything to Mr. Berry's work.

I asked and received a copy of this book from the author/Inkslinger PR in exchange for my honest review. Thank you, Inkslinger PR, for providing the ARC. Let me start by saying I have never read anything by either of these authors or anything from the series. But this can be read as a stand-alone or as part of a series of its own. It’s a novella and a good place to start reading the authors’ work. The characters are wonderfully created, and the story slips effortlessly back and forth between the ancient past and present day. The protagonist is satisfactorily fleshed out that it has intrigued me to read the other stories in the original series. The dialogues are very revealing of what lies at the core of the story and also the smarts of the writers. If you like magic and sorcery, you’ll find yourself lapping the story in no time. And if you want to dip your toes in this genre, this is an excellent place to start. My rating is four starts.

What an entertaining, exhilarating and thrilling story by these two wonderful authors. Superb writing propels this marvelous story of mystery, suspense, danger and my favorite; a lesson in history. Stories involving alchemy and arcane are another favorite so this read hits all the marks for me. I love that Cassiopeia is the star of this story rather than a sidekick for Cotton Malone. She's a terrific character. Strong heroines are a great find among all the alpha heroes. Cassiopeia has a nose for trouble and this time Cotton is miles away but she's got this. She goes on a mystical journey of the nose that leads to the past, themes of reincarnation and a sexy romance. Will her dream revelations solves the mystery of the Sabbat Box? I want more of Cassiopeia! 4.5 stars

4.5 STARS What an absolutely fascinating novella M.J. Rose and Steve Berry have created! Cassiopeia has traveled to the village of Eze to visit her dear family friend, Nicodeme, as she usually does when she isn’t traveling. She wasn’t expecting someone coming in and stealing an ancient artifact, giving chase, and then being pulled into an entirely different time period. It’s amazing how the writers combine magic, legend, lore, time travel, and a modern day contested French presidential election. You might think all this would be just too much in a book, especially a novella, but not in these two talented writers’ hands. They had me hooked from the very first pages. I was completely intrigued by the references to Morgan Le Fay and Authurian legend. My favorite part of the book actually was the writer’s note. It gave a background of so many elements of the book and tied the story together quite nicely. It also made me add the French village of Eze to my bucket list of places to travel!
