Présentation de l'éditeur

When a deadly plague is unleashed in the land of Muirwood, the fate of the world is placed in the hands of a young woman named Lia. Charged to be a magical protector, Lia volunteers to be sent on a desperate quest to rescue the squire Colvin, her love, and his pupil Ellowyn Demont, the alleged heir to the fallen kingdom of Pry-Ree. Still recovering from the injuries of her last adventures, Lia sets off across land and sea warning the kingdom of the oncoming plague. The journey leads her to Dochte Abbey, where her friends are supposedly held. Instead, though, a fallen enemy lies in wait for her, as well as an unbearable new truth. The revelation will force Lia to choose between the lives of her closest friends and her deepest desires…

Fantastically epic and at all times engaging, The Scourge of Muirwood is a monumental finish to the Muirwood Trilogy.

Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Format:Format Kindle
"The Scourge of Muirwood" est le dernier tome de la trilogie Muirwood.

Bonne nouvelle, l'auteur a repris une écriture s'étendant sur 350 pages, comme le tome 1, et pas sur 500 pages, comme le tome 2. On va donc beaucoup plus vite à l'essentiel.

C'est un tome apocalyptique, et c'est un des rares récits je crois où je vois le héros (ici l'héroïne) accepter la "purge", la mort de millions et millions d'êtres vivantes, comme condition nécessaire, comme punition divine à leurs relâchements.

Autre point qui m'a fait tiquer, certes plus de détail mais plus du quotidien et qui jusque là me paraissait juste du "folklore" lié à l'histoire, un obstacle nécessaire : l'héroïne est du côté du Médium, la magie du bien, emplie de spiritualité, tout comme son amoureux. Et bien tant qu'ils ne sont pas mariés, ils n'ont aucun contact corporel au-delà d'un chaste baiser sur la joue. Alors que les méchants, qui ne sont que des femmes (plus tentatrices que les hommes, et qui sont donc favorisées par le mal), sont présentées comme des séductrices se présentant en robes à profond décolleté, osant entraîner les hommes pour leur voler un baiser et les perdre (car les hommes sont seulement faibles). Bien sur, ces femmes dépravées seront les premières punies. Une seule femme au comportement "léger" est présentée sur un jour favorable, mais elle a connu des épreuves et s'est repentie. Bref une Marie-Madeleine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent story.....I want MORE and this is the end of the series....unless we can convince Jeff to pick it up again! 4 mars 2012
Par Lost in the Pages - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is an EXCELLENT series. He's one of the few writers I've seen who really creates characters you care about, has dialog that doesn't feel forced, and draws you into their world so completely that you can hardly put the book down. I had to take it to work and sneak in reading during breaks and lunch! My ONLY complaint is how he ends the book. Mind you -- it is NOT a BAD ending -- I just wanted MORE! His choice of where to end was a bit odd, I would have taken it just a bit further -- especially if he doesn't intend to pick this back up. Of course my hope is that he will write another book........and where he left it makes that logical -- I think if he does not, I may not be able to forgive him! Give us another Jeff!

If you haven't read the other two books -- you DO need to do so -- don't try to read out of order -- it really is a series and you'll miss a lot -- and they are also Excellent:
1. The Wretched of Muirwood
2. The Blight of Muirwood and then this one
3. The Scourge of Muirwood
All Available cheap (or sometimes free) on Amazon (no, I don't work for them!)

I don't come across a series very often that i am excited to read again-before the first book even ends. I don't re-read books that often in any case because i remember them for years. But with this series (i just finished the 3rd book)I can't wait to start reading it again! I have already bought the other two books available from Jeff Wheeler's other series. An author like this can't write enough as far as I'm concerned.
Mr. Wheeler's writing pulls you in and makes you a part of the story. You will feel connected with the characters and believe there really is a Muirwood out there somewhere-or at least wish there were. You can let your tweens read this without worrying about any inappropriate content. There is great romance, but nothing that i wouldn't want my 11 year old to read.
I can't wait to see what Mr. Wheeler writes in the future because i will definitely be buying it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy read, uncomfortable sub-text 23 juillet 2013
Par K. McGuire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read all three books very quickly. I would say they are young adult reading level.
Each book has a sufficiently good climax, making each a good self-contained story.
I enjoyed the world that the author created, I liked the use of magic and the love story. I liked the unfolding of Lia's personal history.

Warning: Spoiler Alert.

The magic in the books "The Medium" is almost exactly like The Force but with a much more Christian message.
The main character is a woman but unfortunately she is a woman that shows mostly "male" characteristics as she is trained to be a hunter and a fighter. All the other women in the book are manipulative, lascivious, sirens who exclusively work to ruin the world for selfish, greedy reasons. Oh, except for Lia's one friend Sowe, who is quiet and submissive and Ciana who is an object to be rescued or possessed. I kept expecting the terrible Blight and Lia's visions of the future to be averted by her actions, but nope, the future can not be changed and the world will be destroyed with just a few escaping on Noah's Arc... er, I mean "The Holk". Seriously, the end of the book is that LECHEROUS WOMEN DESTROY THE WORLD. And if you participated in any of the things that the Medium warns you not to do (drinking, dancing, kissing) then you deserve death. At one point Lia sighs while town folk are burned alive. "They should have listened to my warning." Totally insane.

I really can't recommend this book or series but it's not the worst thing I've ever read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Ends a worthy YA epic 12 mars 2013
Par Kat Hooper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Originally posted at FanLit.

In The Scourge of Muirwood, the third and final installment of Jeff Wheeler's LEGENDS OF MUIRWOOD saga, Lia has discovered her true identity but is unable to tell anyone because the Medium has bound the information. Only a few people know and Colvin, the man Lia loves, is not one of them. While Lia broods about their relationship, she must be the Medium's tool to save the world and hope that everything turns out in the end. Several interspersed chapters are flashbacks which tell the story of the prince of Pry-Ree and his knowledge that his daughter would be the world's savior.

Readers who loved The Wretched of Muirwood and The Blight of Muirwood (and there are a lot of them leaving reviews at Amazon) will probably enjoy The Scourge of Muirwood, too. It's a darker story and it brings the series to a strange ending, though Wheeler leaves it open for future stories in this setting.

I've enjoyed Lia's story for the most part, but I've complained about the looseness of the plot and this becomes even more of an issue in this last novel. Things we thought were important get dropped or only play a small role in the plot. Other parts are difficult to swallow. For example, I never believed that Lia couldn't find some way of letting Colvin know she wasn't a wretched, or at least she could tell him that something important would be revealed that would let them be together. Also, [spoiler here, read it at FanLit]. There are several plot points like this -- they don't make sense and are only there to increase tension.

Yet there are other times when Wheeler deliberately and unrealistically reduces tension. People who die come back to life and at the end everything is resolved quickly and easily and though there is a lot of suffering by most people in the land, our favorite characters get surprise happy endings. With all the rest of the depressing events happening, these happy endings seemed contrived just to make the reader happy. It's a confusing mix.

The many allusions to Biblical stories continue -- Adam and Eve, the serpent, Daniel in the lion's den, the flood, Jonah and the whale, Shadrach and friends in the furnace, the temptation of Christ, Jesus calming the storm, death and resurrection in heaven, etc. While I don't mind Biblical allusions, plot devices taken from other sources make the story less inventive and that's a problem. Another problem is that the villains are over-the-top evil in The Scourge of Muirwood. I kept expecting them to say "BUWAHAHAHA!" (And, though Kate Rudd does an excellent job with the narration otherwise, her villain voices don't help with this feeling.)

This seems like a long list of complaints, but the truth is that I finished The Scourge of Muirwood, which means I was interested enough in Lia's story to keep reading. I would have dropped it long before book 3, or even in the middle of book 3, if I didn't think it was worth my time. Though there are some plot problems, Jeff Wheeler's series is a worthy YA fantasy epic that deserves the attention (though not the 5-star ratings) it's receiving. I'll be happy to try whatever Jeff Wheeler writes next.

Later update: A couple of days after I wrote this, Brilliance Audio sent me the first book of Jeff Wheeler's next series. It's called Fireblood. I'm putting it in my TBR stack, but not at the top.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Religion With A Fantasy Wrapper 6 mai 2013
Par NomDePlume - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The more I read, the more this book felt like a slick plan to convert a non-Christian than a new fantasy work. Sure, there are some tropes common to many religions that are endemic to storytelling: a coming plague, adherence to duty, faith in a spiritual power. Plenty of other books have these motifs- but here, they are coming from the pulpit. Scantily-clad women as the issuance of evil? Check. A special shirt given only to the chosen to keep away malevolent spirits? Yep. Marrying only another person initiated into the belief system with the purpose of having like-minded children? Got it. Being a fighter for your religion that makes you a more noble ruler than others? Humm, that too. Resurrection after being stabbed in the ribs? Oh yes!

I will say it was thrillingly written, and the author does an excellent job of building a convincing world. However, I won't be reading the third installment because the religious overtones make the book more of a catechism lesson than anything else.
