The Scourge of Muitwood by Jeff Wheeler
The Scourge of Muirwood is the final installment of the Muirwood Trilogy.
Upon discovering she is the lost heir of Pry-Ree, Lia is forced to leave the protection of Muirwood once again. She embarks upon a perilous journey across the kingdom where she avoids capture and begs passage on a ship bound to Dahomey. Lia’s safety is in further jeopardy when she finally reaches Dochte Abbey and learns the hetaera have taken control. Lia must gather all her strength and muster the courage to defeat them, for if she fails, the consequence would be a world in ruin and the shattered lives of those she loves.
They rode oh horseback, side by side, down a road overgrown with the twisted limbs of monstrous oak trees. The air was full of gnats and gossamer threads of spider silk that gently tickled the face.
Lia heard the body swing down from the raters and fall like a sure-footed cat. The kishion blocked the doorway leading out. She realised, too late, that the man in the black cassock was not the kishion after all. She realised also that her gladius was still in the basket.
I am such a big fan of this series and this book is delivering on all the right levels! The first book in this series I was a little uncertain of yet still everything the author had created was very fascinating and that fascination only grew in the second book. The characters the author created are also a big plus to liking the book as I just adore Lia and her journey and I love how she can be both compassionate and badass in such a realistic way as that’s not something I see often in YA. I should have this book finished tonight because the pace is just right and the story is just so good, I wish more people knew about these books! A highly recommended fantasy series for those who are looking for good strong characters and an involving plot 🙂
