The Scourge of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood, #3) by Jeff Wheeler
A Fun Story in the End…
Don’t let the glowing reviews fool you; the first book in the Legends of Muirwood trilogy was lame.
I was surprised when I found the second and third books to actually be really fun! Glad I stuck with them.
One thing I should mention about book three . . . while the ending left me mostly satisfied, I still felt a bit frustrated with how things were tied up. After some great build up over the course of all three books, the final–and most major–pieces of the puzzle were summed up lazily in the last chapter. It reminded me of when I was writing essays in high school. I would eventually get to the point I didn’t want to write anymore, so I’d just hurry and cram things into a few sentences at the end. The author could have done a great job revealing the ending bits . . . instead we just get a few paragraphs summing up the reveals I turned nearly 1000 pages to get to. Kind of annoying.
