Today's spotlight books is an epic fantasy with over 100 five-star reviews!

"Fantasy readers looking for a world that both entertains and engages are urged to read this series. The Wretched of Muirwood is a finely crafted beginning to what promises to be an epic fantasy." -- Foreword Reviews

"From chapter 1 I knew I'd likely have trouble putting it down, and I was right. The writing style is engaging, the story is fascinating, and the characters - well, they just work. They click; they resonate. Pasqua is a particular favourite of mine, because even though I can't cook like her, I can certainly relate to her character and the softness beneath her brusque exterior. -- Opehlia D., Amazon reviewer

The Wretched of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood: Book 1), by Jeff Wheeler

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.
