The Wretched of Muirwood, the opening novel in the Muirwood Trilogy, is the tale of the orphan Lia - who is part of a pariah caste known only as the wretched, a people unloved, unwanted, and destined to a life of servitude. Forbidden to read or write, and forced to slave away in the Abbey kitchen, Lia is all but resigned to her fate. But when an injured squire named Colvin is abandoned at the Abbey kitchen, opportunity arises, and Lia conspires to hide Colvin and change her life forever.

Her plan becomes a perilous one when a nefarious sheriff starts a manhunt for Colvin, and the land is torn by a treacherous war between a ruthless king and a rebel army. Ominous and illuminating, Lia sets out on an epic quest for freedom with hopes to unravel the secrets of her concealed past.

    " I'll admit, I was told such great things about this book that at first I was underwhelmed, but after a couple chapters I was totally into it. The book is so well written and I love the characters. They are so real, with strenths and weaknesses and emotions. I am so excited to get to read the next two!!! "

    " I really enjoyed the story and premise, but the writing wasn't quite as polished as it could have been and there were a lot of extra words which got in the way of the pacing. I also had a hard time "losing myself" in the story - I was often reminded that I was reading by the writing style. "

    " Fun young adult title. Lots of the elements sound strangely familiar in a nice way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E | 1/23/2014

    " Really good series! Very symbolic. Really liked the characters. Did a very good job giving the characters different personalities. Liked the storyline a lot. Very good series. Book 2 is best of the 3. "

    " Good vacation book. Kept my attention and couldn't wait to sit on the beach and read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Polly | 1/11/2014

    " I enjoyed the story and the characters - didn't want to put the book down. Some the basic principles seemed very familiar . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/6/2014

    " Reading these books, I wanted to be a better person, try a bit harder. They were very very good. The story took me to a different land and I was sad to leave when it ended. Grateful for wonderful stories. "

    " A good, solid story. I liked it enough to pick up the second book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 11/29/2013

    " I read the whole trilogy, so the story was good enough, but as it went on it got more overtly Christian than I'm really comfortable with. Also, women as the root of all evil isn't my favorite theme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 11/5/2013

    " Book one of a great trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allan | 10/25/2013

    " While I somewhat enjoyed the storytelling in this book, and the writing is good, the "deus ex machina" nature of The Medium is troubling to me. But it's not a bad story, so enjoy if you like this type of fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenniandres | 10/23/2013

    " I've already read this book but I am reading it again as I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jere | 10/10/2013

    " LDS author whose plot is filled with doctrine. An easy read with likable characters. Lia is an orphan living as a cook when she finds a wounded man on the door step of the kitchen that changes her life. Her journey to develop her talents and find her mission in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 9/2/2013

    " This was loaned to me by my sister, and she knows me pretty well, because I was intrigued from the start. There are twists and turns, action, adventure, friendship, and quite an interesting world with a different set of rules in this book. I quite enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 7/20/2013

    " Lots of interesting LDS tie-ins. Well written and a fun read, even if the Medium stuff was a bit heavy handed. "

    " I wish I could give this series 6 stars. Can't say enough good things about them. "
