    1. Review:I received this book from NetGalley for reviewThere aren't many reviews of this book up. And the most of them are reviews filled with praise for this new fantasy story. And while I wish I could share in that praise, I must confess I can't.Much of this story was really cliche, and something I know has been done before. Nothing really stood out to me in any way. The world was fine, the magic system was confusing, and I really didn't care for the main character. One of the things that bother [...]


    2. A wonderful, harrowing and adventurous tale about Maia an exiled princess. Her life is difficult, magical, guided and at times mysterious. She seeks to find her place in the world and into her Father's heart. In doing so he sends her on a journey which will change her life for ever in many ways. Maia is brave, inspirational, humble, graceful, resilient and every ounce a princess. She has a special destiny in store if she is willing to embrace it. With many challenges, dangers and obstacles to ov [...]


    3. Original Post: The Banished of Muirwood at FLYLēF (flylef) with 2.5 of 5 stars“NONE OF THE girls of the seven realms were allowed to learn the secret art of reading and engraving. That was a privilege only allowed to boys and men.”For whatever reason, reading this disturbs me to no end. Of all the possible things to damper a female’s magic, why choose illiteracy? The story tries to explain the logic behind this. It failed. With great power, even boys and men are just as easily corruptible [...]


    4. A Copy of this book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an Honest ReviewCome check out my Book Blog for more fun stuff and reviews!I am going to stop right here, and just put this up because this sums up my feelings on the book real fast and easy. Its a short 18 second clip from The Mummy starring Brenden Fraiser.youtube/watch?v=DtOXqMy mother taught me, as I am sure many of your mothers taught you, that if you do not have anything nice to say about something, don't say anything at all. Un [...]


    5. This is a deeply frustrating book. In theory, it has so much promise.Maia is the only daughter of the King of Comoros. By law she can't inherit, but she is the apple of her father's eye--until he decides he must have a male heir.It's no surprise that the Seven Kingdoms don't recognize female inheritance rights; women aren't allowed to learn real magic or even learn reading & engraving. And yes, you read that right. Not "reading & writing"; reading and engraving. Even though in context it [...]


    6. Full Review @abookishescape/2015/09The End, was wonderful Maia learns so much about who she is and what is expected of her. As always she takes everything in stride. As I mentioned before there were a lot of difficult decisions that were made. Unfortunately this poor girl is forever doomed to not have what she thinks she wants. Her whole life has been about what others want for her. She is strong in her own way so I like her character very much. We are introduced to a very important person in Ma [...]


    7. The Banished of Muirwood Jeff Wheeler Princess Maia,18 year old, rightful heir to the throne of Comoros, has been disowned and exiled by her father. Her crime, she was a female and only a male could sit the throne. Females were forbidded to learn to read and write but her tutor, Chancellor Walraven, had tought her anyway in secret. She could also speak several languages. The one thing that could mean death was her ability to control the Medium. With her is a kishion (bodyguard) who is supposed t [...]


    8. DNF! I got more than halfway but found the story too confusing with the flashbacks! At first, I thought Maia was a strong character but as the story went on, she's shown to be very dependent on others!


    9. ***Received a copy of this book via NetGalley for a honest review."The Banished of Muirwood" is the first book the a standalone trilogy by Jeff Wheeler. Princess Marciana, "Maia", born the only child of her parents, becomes a pawn in the royal court intrigues and old laws. Secretly trained to read and write and in the ways of the spiritual and magical force called the Medium which is forbidden to females, she has only ever wanted to go to the abby to learn and be tested as a maston. She loses th [...]


    10. Enjoyable fantasy with a female protagonist who seems to start off rather weak but becomes increasingly strong and independent. The book is exciting, has good world-building, and I liked the occasional flashbacks and journal entries. I also liked that a number of the characters were more nuanced than just "bad guys and good guys".Looking forward to the next in the series!Note: I received a copy of this from NetGalley and the publisher.


    11. A spectacular first in a trilogy, Maia goes from 13 to 19. Maria is a princess, then a disavowed, then a Queen, then an Empress and finally a student. Whew great stuff, thanks to author and Netgallery.


    12. **You can read the original post on my blog @ angieonbooks**I’m always hesitant to accept books from authors directly or take books from lesser-known publishers. I have a good reason, y’all, I’m not unnecessarily picky. I’ve had some bad interactions from people who are too close to the books. However, when I saw this on Netgalley I knew that it was worth that risk. I am so very glad that I did request the books and that the publisher also sent me the physical copy of the book(s). (They [...]


    13. Maybe high fantasy books simply aren't for me? I feel like every one I read leaves me disappointed or bored or both. This one was no different. The plot was everywhere and the "twists" were obvious and annoying and contradictory to each other. The only character I liked was the dog, and once again we're given this magical world from someone's imagination and still women are treated poorly everywhere! I'm so tired of this. The world building was decent, but incredibly confusing. Words were throw [...]


    14. I liked the strong female lead character in this book. This storyline shows many oppressions towards females in general, but the main character, Maia, mentally overcomes the countless obstacles that are thrown at her from every angle. This story paints a tale of learning self control, overcoming hardships, and determination in the face of all odds. The only thing that made this book somewhat difficult to read for me was the complex pronunciation of names of various people, magic, titles, etc. I [...]


    15. I received this book for free from the Publisher at NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I've seen this book about quite a bit, so I leapt at the chance when I saw it on NetGalley. This is an absolutely fantastic fantasy novel, I'd love to read the next one.I'll start with the description, it's beautiful. It doesn't lack in any area. You're never wondering what something looks like, you know exactly what you need to k [...]


    16. An interesting and engrossing story about Maia a young princess who is exiled by her father as a result of a power struggle between king and church. It's a sad story, somewhat reminiscent of Cinderella, complete with an evil stepmother and evil stepsisters. Eventually, she finds herself sent on a great quest to save herself, her family and her people from evil. This is the story of Maia's coming of age, as she is forced to grow up and confront her own magic.A little misogynistic, women in this w [...]


    17. I received this book through Netgalley in return for an honest review and feedback. This book had me staying up until the wee hours of the morning trying to read as much as I could. Two nights in a row I had to mentally slap myself to make myself stop reading and remember I wake up in a few hours. The beginning of this book was a little difficult for me, but only because I felt like I wasn't quite understanding the magics. (But that is always my case when reading anything, I'm extremely detail o [...]


    18. “How quickly we judge each other. How quickly our thoughts condemn us. The Medium looks on the heart, sister. Not the face. You are judged by the choices you make. Not the choices of others.” If you had asked me what to rate this book closer to the beginning, it wouldn’t be nearly as high. The story was very long and needed a good chunk of time for me to really dive into it, but it slowly made its way to 3-3.5 stars. Wheeler gave great care and attention to The Banished of Muirwood, unlike [...]


    19. All of us have to fight the duality of our natures from birth. That battle takes on a particular flavor for Mia in her adventures through the 7 kingdoms. I have enjoyed Mr. Wheeler's writing having read a couple of his trilogies thus far. I have enjoyed his ability to carry a story forth while sticking to a paradigm that could allow for greater levity but keeps it simple and consistent. Although I am dying to understand how Mia could have gotten into her predicament considering what I know of ho [...]


    20. A thrilling sad story!Let me start of by saying that i completely enjoyed the story! It was extremely well written and beautifully depicted! The vivid descriptions of the characters, the scenes, the feelings, the emotions, the situations were simply outstanding! Kudos to the author for such brillaint narration!Despite of the brilliance in writing the book seemed really long! I thought i would never finish it! The characters of Collier was nice and so was John Tate and his dog! Maia seemed a very [...]


    21. This is a very enjoyable read. I was unfamiliar with the author, but am interested in reading more of his work, especially about Muirwood.I especially liked that he utilized real places and languages at times in the book. The main character is the Princess of Comoros, which brings to mind the Comoros islands. One of the rival kingdoms is Dahomey, which is the name of an ancient African kingdom. The population of Hautland speak a Germanic language.Furthermore, he has created an interesting and in [...]


    22. This was a slower paced young adult fantasy. I almost discontinued reading this book a couple of times, but I found the world created and the characters intriguing enough to not only finish this one, but to move on to book 2 upon completion. I am not a fan of cliffhangers, and the ending was abrupt, but I was left wanting more. Since it was already released and available as a kindleunlimited I decided I might as well. While I found the plot slow moving, I still have to admit that I liked the wri [...]


    23. The start of another trilogyThis is the first book in another trilogy set in the land of Muirwood Abbey. It was a little confusing at first but that goes with the story. Maia was confused about what was happening to her. It will be interesting to see how or if Maia can recover from the bad choices that she made.


    24. "I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review" I enjoyed the adventures that the main character experienced and the flashbacks taught the reader more abs more about her character. However, the history of the land where the story takes place was difficult to retain and I often had to re read sections of the book.


    25. An enjoyable read. The political, cultural and magical construction are the high point. In some ways this book felt like a prologue. It had its own story line, but the fact that there was a larger story in the works was obvious, and we got very few details of its shape.


    26. The imagery and magical fantasy of the story was well crafted. I was in awe and captivated by the author. The only reason I did not score this at 5 stars was because I am not a fan of stories that continuously flip flop between the past and the present.


    27. Banished was a big step up from the Legends of Muirwood trilogy. I can tell that Jeff Wheeler has matured as a writer in regards to character, plot, and world-building, and I enjoyed this book very much.I'll break my review down into characters, plot, setting, and writing.CharactersI've always been impressed with Jeff Wheeler's ability to craft interesting and rounded characters. The main character, Marciana, or “Maia,” has dreams/flashbacks throughout the book, interspersed between chapters [...]


    28. This was a pleasant surprise. It was on sale so I picked it up. Turns out this is book 1 of the SECOND trilogy though, so there's two more after this and 3 more before it (takes place like a hundred years before so they're far enough apart you don't really need to read the first trilogy first). And then come to find out there's a novella called the "Lost Abbey" that takes place just before this book whose events are frequently alluded to in this book. *SIGH* I personally hate that book #1 is act [...]


    29. It is difficult to be totally original with the Fantasy genre because so much has already been written. Some of Maia’s story reminds me of Cinderella. The nasty stepmother and the two stepsisters. The journey Maia took, in my opinion, was too long. Winter is winter and hardships are hardships but they were too many to hold my attention and I skimmed much of the descriptions. Many reviewers were upset that in Maia’s world women were not allowed to read nor write. Inheritance was for male heir [...]


    30. One of the best YA fantasy novels I've readI started reading this book after borrowing it and the Audible edition from the Kindle Owners Lending Library. I wasn't sure what to expect because I didn't recognize the author, and I rarely listen to Audible narration. However, I am so glad that I chose to borrow this book.I fell in love with the character Maia. She is a banished princess who is traveling on a mission for her father, regardless of her banishment. The characters she meets are well deve [...]
