When banished Princess Maia is captured by her father and threatened with execution, it appears that all is lost...until the people rise in rebellion against their king. Suddenly, the cast-aside royal finds herself crowned the first Queen of Comoros. But enemies appear on all sides as her father's conniving supporters assemble a new army against the fledgling ruler. While Maia struggles to keep the peace within her own walls, she rushes to form historical alliances with her neighboring kingdoms against an impending invasion of the ruthless Naestors - led by the cruel Corriveaux - who will destroy anyone Maia loves in order to ruin her kingdom and prevent the mastons from regaining power.
Realizing that Muirwood Abbey is once again her only hope for survival, Maia gathers her people there for protection. When she discovers an adversary greater than she's ever known, she must use all the magic, strength, and wisdom gained from her life's trials to prevent the Void that would bring destruction to herself, her true love, and the entire kingdom.

To be honest, I have been very pleased with Jeff Wheeler and his stories. I came across his work by chance. I was looking for something new because other authors were between books at the time. What a great find for me! I truly look forward to his next book or series.
The Muirwood series was written well and really brought the story to the conclusion that it deserved. Throughout the series, I found myself invested into the characters. Really connecting with the story. When that happens for me, I know that I have found something worth reading.
Mr. Wheeler, if you happen to read this, please continue to do the work you do. Thank you.
The book continued with the amazing story line on which “The ciphers of Muirwood” ended and then ..too much politics and too little action. It was good to read about the rapport that Maia built up with her council, but in my honest opinion, we could have had less of it – the book became a little bit boring to me at one stage. But then..Jeff Wheeler pulled it all back again and bang! Epic fantasy deluxe. I laughed, I cried and I certainly sat on the edge of my seat. It became a story more than worthy of Muirwood and I fell in love with Jeff’s writing all over again. A marvellous happy ending!
Jeff Wheeler is a gifted & inspired author. Although each of the Muirwood books are historical, fantasy fiction, I recognize much of the wisdom written by the Aldermastons and mastons in their tomes as coming from Jewish and Christian teachings. In this book, particularly, I notices several nearly word for word quotes from the psalms, proverbs and book of wisdom. The story is gripping, only few dull moments, when I was anxious to get past the required narrative to find out what happened to the character. Maia is an inspiration, not only to her people, but also as an example of how each of us should treat others. Collier represents to me a person who although unenlightened, power hungry and overly ambitious, willing to do whatever is necessary to get what he wants, is able to recognize the error of his ways, develop the excellent parts of his character while changing the others, becoming a better person an ruler in the process. With age comes wisdom, I guess. Mia is an excellent...
