[Audiobook] The Scourge of Muirwood, Legends of Muirwood Book 3

And I’ve finally come to an end with this Muirwood series! It’s been awhile since I last finished a series this quickly, though I have to admit that it being an audiobook GREATLY helped me finish it. Like always, SPOILERS for previous books

Back so soon? I think so! I went ahead and started the second book of the Legends of Muirwood because I was really curious where the story would lead. Plus, I needed more of Lia and Colvin in my life (and oh my did I get more of them)

[Audiobook] The Wretched of Muirwood, Legends of Muirwood Book 1

Hey guys! So recently I picked up a new series after reading a couple non-fiction and classics books (sometimes the system needs a detox from all those love triangles and messy drama plot twists) and I thought I’d let you all know that you should pick it up for a read!

15954540

In the ancient and mystical land of Muirwood, Lia has known only a life of servitude. Labeled a “wretched,” an outcast unwanted and unworthy of respect, Lia is forbidden to realize her dream to read or write.

All but doomed, her days are spent toiling away as a kitchen slave under the charge of the Aldermaston, the Abbey’s watchful overseer. But when an injured squire named Colvin is abandoned at the kitchen’s doorstep, an opportunity arises.

The nefarious Sheriff Almaguer soon starts a manhunt for Colvin, and Lia conspires to hide Colvin and change her fate. In the midst of a land torn by a treacherous war between a ruthless king and a rebel army, Lia finds herself on an ominous journey that will push her to wonder if her own hidden magic is enough to set things right.

At once captivating, mysterious, and magic-infused, The Wretched of Muirwood takes the classic fantasy adventure and paints it with a story instantly epic, and yet, all its own.

[Pegasus Publishers] Ecliptica: A book about Dragons, Magic, and Thieves, what more could I ask for?

Hey guys! Now that February is over, I’ve decided to go back to my roots (aka. avoiding romance like the plague! haha, jk, jk…or am I…)

First book to break the cycle is Ecliptica by T.G.W. Becker, another title I requested a while back from Pegasus Publishers.

The book follows Drake, a young thief who chances upon a secret chamber under Picinto’s catacombs while running away from local authorities. Little does he know, that “chance” finding had already been foretold. In the chamber, Drake ends up meeting Zeek, possibly the last dragon in existence, and the spirit requests him to find the 6 shards of his scattered Ecliptica (dragon core) so that he may be resurrected. Persuaded by the idea of  wielding magic, Drake ends up agreeing to Zeek’s request.  Continue reading
