The Blight of Muirwood: A Review (Legends of Muirwood #2)


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.

My Review:

Lia is now 15 and has been appointed the Hunter for the Abbey. I must admit, I was surprised at how good she was at it. She didn't rely on her power with the Medium as she trained, but rather she focused on building her physical strength and endurance.

And then when Colven comes back. Gah. I learned to love him from the first book but man, he just made me angry in this one. He couldn't admit his love for Lia because she wasn't a Maston like him, and he could only marry a Maston. So heaven forbid he reject her in a nice way, but no...

He should have had more faith in Lia.

But in this novel, Lia is forced to rely mostly on herself. She grows so much, it's incredible to see the change from the Lia of the first book to the Lia at the end of this one.

Again, such a good, wholesome, clean read. The fantasy world was so vivid, I wish I could visit.

4.5 out of 5!
