Do you love Game of Thrones, but sometimes you're not in the mood for torture and botched beheadings? Um, yeah... Me too! Then you'll like The Wretched of Muirwood, the first book in the Legends of Muirwood trilogy by Jeff Wheeler. It's packed with adventure, secrets, and Medieval magic, but no flaying. Ouch.
The Wretched of Muirwood has something for almost everyone: If you like Medieval knights, illuminated manuscripts, imposing abbeys and quiet cathedrals, this book is for you. If you like brave young girls with bows and arrows and heroines who care more about reading than boys, then you'll love the main character, Lia. And if you like magic systems that blend elemental magic with psychic connections à la Orson Scott Card's philotic web, then look no further.
