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.

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.
"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.
I am really enjoying this series, in fact much more than I thought I would. Original story with real personalities.
Since the first line of The Wretched of Muirwood I have been hooked. loosing sleep and avoiding calls so the story isn't interrupted
"Outstanding storytelling & Performance"
Very good follow up to Wretched
Particularly liked learning who Lia is
Enjoyed the suspense throughout the story
I can't wait to see what happens between Leah and Colvin and the rest of Muitwood.
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..
"I can't wait for the next book!"
This book is better than the first. It kept me in suspense the entire time. I can't wait for the next book!
Wow! This book has it all suspense, intrigue, lies, hidden agendas, battle, a little romance, and sadly death. Great character development, storyline, and plot. Narrator did a great job.
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!!!
"Great writing and story"
I really like this writer's style. The stories keep me coming back for more, can't wait for the next one!
"a greate follow up"
it was a good number 2 and I look forward to read number 3 in this series,,
