Maia is the great-something-odd granddaughter of Lia and Colven. She has inherited her great-something-odd grandmother’s personality and strengthen. Her father is a monster and has disowned her, so now she travels with an assassin, a carpenter/hunter, and his dog as she goes about finding safety. Only, she learns she will never be safe until she handles what has been growing inside her.
I was so excited to renter the world of Muirwood. Although Maia is from Comoros and is royalty, she is drawn back to her ancestral home of Muirwood. Which I'm excited to read about in the next installment.
I appreciate the references to Lia, even though this is a stand-alone series. Jeff Wheeler has once again written a clean fantasy full of page-turning adventure.
4 out of 5!
