"A devastating plague continues to rage through the land of Muirwood, and all hope is laid at the feet of the young woman called Lia. Called as a magical protector, Lia volunteers to embark on one last quest to rescue the knight-maston Colvin--her great love--and his pupil, the alleged heir to the fallen kingdom of Pry-Ree. Undaunted by injuries, Lia sets off across land and sea warning the kingdom of the great plague that is upon them. The arduous journey leads her to the doors of Dochte Abbey, where her friends are supposedly held. However, a fallen enemy lies in wait for Lia, as well as an unbearable new truth. The revelation will pit Lia's deepest desires against the fate of her enchanted world-- Fantastically epic and at all times engaging, The Scourge of Muirwood is a monumental finale to the Muirwood Trilogy."--Page 4 of cover.… (mere)

Summer 2018, Whispersync Audiobook & Kindle Books:

I blow straight through Wheeler's trilogy in what amounts to a little more than a book a day, so these are all going to end up running together.

I rather loved Lia's story, and getting to both read and listen to it. I love the Maston magic (even if it did ring a little too close to The Fountain from his most recent series I had picked up and run through). I loved Colvin's wandering, plodding uncertainty about everything, especially his feelings. I loved that this love story didn't end up looking like anyone of the clearly too-alike earlier ones in the Fountain Head double trilogy.

I mourned the descent of this gorgeous, glorious culture of virtues and faith as the handholds for real magic, and how the forcing of it was what spurned the world into blackness (which is in the reverse to what interests me about its centuries later follow-up trilogy). I believe people will enjoy these and run them rather fast. The characters are engrossing. The story goes everywhere, and I am left with a very clear feeling and idea of what this world looks like, and the fact its out there still living on, even though I'm no longer at the fire listening to its tale being told.

Bible stories much

I read the authors notes about medieval England being source and inspiration but I keep seeing passages from my Bible pop up. Good reading to all you. I’m looking for more ( )

Intrigue, danger, drama, fights, romance, longing, testing, devotion, betrayal, and more are all a part of this book. A lot of unanswered questions get resolved. Highly recommend the series! ( )

The book starts by cutting straight to the chase - it is now armageddon. The "fall of the world", basically, was done Sodom and Gomorrah-style with cameos by Noah's Ark and the Tower of Babel. The reliance on a "higher power", i.e. the Medium known in our world as the Holy Spirit, was again used as the only way to drive the plot forward. Why bother with an education or training when you have the Medium, right? The ultimate "blight on the world" that basically ended things for Adam and Eve 2.0 to reboot humanity was a disease that was passed by kissing unscrupulous women (called "haetara"). How does one become an evil woman, haetara, you may ask? By sending young girls around the age of the onset of puberty to figure out how to protect themselves against manipulations by those older and with more worldly experience who were pitting them against magical artifacts that exploited very primal fears including starvation, pain, and death only to be rewarded with possession by one of The Unborn - souls too evil to be born. Oh yes. These young girls are treated as evil masterminds, but apparently they're just possessed. But too bad for them - they're getting wiped out. Oh and the lead Mean Girl from book 1? Knocked up after having sex once, because The Evil of Sex. Saved from the end of the world and a changed now-young woman, fitting her new role of mother (to be). And the unresolvable "oh no he's supposed to marry the protagonist but he's with a haetara who unwittingly stole her identity" problem? Solved by a irrevocable marriage, which is apparently more binding than a regular marriage and can be performed without both sides knowledge and consent. (Read: the protagonist's love interest married her this way without her knowledge or consent.) But it's ok because happy endings.

This trilogy was an interesting experience to say the least... ( )
