Publisher's Summary

In a stand-alone series set in the world of Muirwood, eighteen-year-old Maia is the exiled princess of Comoros and heir to the throne. As a result of her father's ceaseless need for authority, she was left disinherited and forced to live as a servant in her enemy's home. When the king invites chaos into the land by expelling the magical order known as the Dochte Mandar, Maia finds herself on a perilous quest to save her people. To survive, she must use magic she has learned in secret - despite the fact that women are forbidden to control it. Hunted by enemies at every turn, Maia realizes that danger lurks within her, too. Her powers threaten to steal not only her consciousness but also her sense of right and wrong. Can she set herself free and save the realm she loves - even if that realm has forgotten her?

I Wouldn't Recommend It

What disappointed you about The Banished of Muirwood?

It had so much potential -- the concept behind it was awesome. But I found the main character absolutely unbearable. For somebody who prided herself on not crying, she certainly whined and cried a lot throughout the book. And I also just couldn't believe the part of the plot where the king was so ridiculously calloused toward his daughter and queen. It made even less sense that the daughter felt such a strong need to be loyal to him when he was such a jerk to her and such a terrible ruler. I expected the main character to do something more.

What could Jeff Wheeler have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Modify the main character. She's very whiny and overcome with emotion in every single scene. I couldn't stand her. The concept behind the plot was awesome. I just wish the plot were different, or more believable.

How could the performance have been better?

The voice of the main character made her seem hysterical when she said almost anything. When she was happy, she was consumed with emotion and her voice shook. When she was sad, she was consumed with emotion and her voice shook. When she was having even the most mundane conversation, it sounded like she was consumed with emotion and her voice shook. It made it sound very melodramatic.

What character would you cut from The Banished of Muirwood?

The main character. Her place as the main character was fine, but her personality was very unlikable.

Any additional comments?

I'm not trying to knock the book. Some people will really enjoy this. Authors can't make everyone happy. But if you like series like The Wheel of Time, A Song of Ice & Fire, The Reckoners, Mistborn, Stormlight Archive, The Lightbringer Series, etc., this one probably isn't going to do it for you.

I love the Muirwood series

Any additional comments?

I am so very grateful Jeff Wheeler continued this world. I loved the first series, and when it ended, I felt like Lia's story was unfinished, now that I am finally getting closure on her life and learning about her Great, Great Grand-Daughter Mya I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much, it will be interesting to see what Mya's life will turn into now and how she will deal with her struggles to come. Thank you!!!

Brilliant

Loved the story and how it dovetailed the Muirwood trilogy. Nearly shouted, cheered and warned her aloud several times! Mr Wheeler thank you for your dream
