Publisher's Summary

Rising from her humble beginnings as a lost orphan, Lia is summoned to be Muirwood Abbey’s protector and special guardian for Ellowyn Demont, the lost heir of the fallen kingdom of Pry-Ree. After the death of the ruthless king at the battle of Winterrowd, the great Aldermaston and Abbey leader calls on Lia to use her mystical talents to save Muirwood from two new threats - a vengeful queen accusing the Abbey of her husband’s death and a deadly plague threatening to destroy the land.

Amidst the turmoil, a battle ensues, and soon Lia learns the world’s magic has begun to falter. As a blanket of dread envelops the Abbey, hopes are tested, and Lia will be forced to come to terms with a secret that will change her life forever.

Love it

I'm an over the road truck and listen to audio books to keep me rolling. I drove 8 straight hours while listening to this book! I love the narrator, she brings the story to life... I've listened to this entire series and now I'm listening to "The covenant of Muirwood" series..

the fun continues in a fast moving fantasy

Narration is very well performed,with great voice variation between players. Keeps a good story moving with excitement that is not over played.

Wholesome scifi fantasy!

Jeff Wheeler proves that you do not have to resort to foul language, explicit sex scenes, and occultic rituals to weave a great fantasy. I would put this on the same level as the J.R.R Tolkien's
books. What a great find! I have read several of his series and plan on reading them all so far they have disappointed!

Fabulous!!!

So rich and deeply interwoven with symbolism and meaning. I very much appreciated the author's depth of knowledge and education into historic and legendary stories and texts so that he could draw from them inspiration and also make direct connections with their ideas and traditions. Great story, wonderfully told!!!

Weak heroine

A good story frustrated by a weak heroine. Story ever giving long expositions of her emotional reactions and thoughts. She cries constantly, and pathetically pines for a man who treats her like a dishrag. Same basic story could have been made much better if she had a little more toughness in dealing with emotional issues. As it is, you just want to throttle her and yell, "Show a little backbone, will ya?"

good read

love the series so far and this was a good read although a rather large plot hole developed at the end. Hopefully the next book covers it.

Love it

The story line is great, I listened to this book for hours at a time! The Narrator is the icing on the cake. She brings the entire story to life and captures the essence of the individual characters. I’m now reading The Scourge of Muirwood and I am dreading the ending of the series.

Annoying Characters

I like character based stories, and in the first book in this series, I began to like the main character of Lia. She showed a spark of courage and intelligence, that seemed to disappear in this the second book. She started to become just another simpering, brainless fluff head, who could only function if she could secure the affection of the main male character, Colvin the petty minded and shallow. I gave the story two stars only because the setting was well done. I won't be listening to book three. Nor will I waste credits on the second Muirwood series. I will give credit to Kate Rudd, whose narration was the only thing that kept me listening for as long as I did. I'm disappointed, as I had enjoyed the first book, and was hoping it would fulfil the promise it hinted at. It was not to be.

Great pace, a worthy sequel

Really enjoyed this installment, suspenseful but still keeps the story moving. The main characters relationships are but frustrating at first but that is resolved well, so stick with it.
