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.

Since the first line of The Wretched of Muirwood I have been hooked. loosing sleep and avoiding calls so the story isn't interrupted
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..
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!!!
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?"
Love to read but these old eyes need a break now and then, so I am trying Audible. I can read faster though...
Hunter is patient.
Lia's Maston Exam was an excellent example of writing. The reader is brought all the descriptions of Lia's vision, words, actions. her reflections, thoughts. reflexive reactions, and all in rapid succession it was certainly an exciting chapter.
Yes, I have enjoyed her performances before and this was so very good. She gave each character a recognizable voice and unique personality. I am impressed!
Ahh, declarations of love so very moving.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was better paced and more exciting than the first. Kate's performance was beautiful.
I had stopped listening to recorded books several years ago and I have been reminded, listening to this story, when a storyline and the actual recording come together. While this is a tale of good vs evil with sprinkles of religion through out it is easy to get lost in. There are many books out that follow the same pattern but this one stands out.
"a greate follow up"
it was a good number 2 and I look forward to read number 3 in this series,,
