    1. A wonderful second book in this series of Maia's adventures and the world where Muirwood Abbey exists. In this book Maia has a much more stable environment within Muirwood Abbey, surrounded by friends and family. Her trials and tribulations are not over though sadly. She must find strength, fortitude and learn quickly to sit the Maston Test. She has a great task ahead of her and the secret machinations of the King's court and warring factions of the world around her are very real distractions an [...]

    3. Reading With ABC readingwithabc readingwithabc/review-the- Ciphers of Muirwood is the second book of the Covenant of Muirwood series (see the review of book #1 here) and I have to say that I love it. Now that I’m more familiar with the world created by Wheeler and the politics and I was able to understand everything much better.Ciphers start where Vanished ended. Maia and her grandmother escaped the Victus and arrive to Muirwood Abbey. Here Maia is safe from the ‘spirits’ that chase her an [...]


    4. I'm really enjoying this series. Jeff Wheeler does a great job of balancing the action and intrigue with getting inside the characters. I also liked the blurbs from Richard Syon--a lot of wisdom there. I'm off to start the third one right now!Note: I received a free e-galley of this from NetGalley and the publisher.


    5. I highly enjoyed the first book in this series, but must confess to strong disappointment in this installment. It seemed to take a long time to accomplish nothing, the improbability factor was higher, and the dialogue scenes set my teeth on edge (personal gripe--do not convey emotion through nearly constant written intonation of speech, like 'spoke softly,' 'sighed and whispered,' 'said sorrowfully,' etc.).The protagonist seemed more like a conduit for something to work through her than an activ [...]


    6. I read the first installment of this series in graphic novel form, which has its merits. The last time I read a series in split formats was when I read Spy Goddess. I don't believe reading just one format for an entire series makes the experience any more or less enjoyable, but that's just me. Anyway, I got this version from NetGalley after reading the first book. In this installment, Maia finds a for of freedom from her father, and meets other powerful women like her training to be ciphers. Of [...]


    7. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.I have really enjoyed both of the books in this series by Jeff Wheeler. They are fast paced with political intrigue, magic, quick wit, and memorable characters. The writing is wonderful. Beautifully smooth and colorful. That being said, there are a few things keeping my from giving this book 5 stars.As with most reviewers I find Maia's soft spot for her father partially understandable (he is her father after all) but incredibly a [...]


    8. 4.9 starsAnother well crafted book in the series. Maia is more likable in this book (perhaps because she's not playing the role of an active hetaera?) Location wise, the story centers back on Muirwood as Maia seeks sanctuary there. That makes kind of a homecoming for the reader if you read the separate Legends of Muirwood series. I did not care for the very last chapter. It is once again a contrived plot device required to transition the story into the third book of the series, but not really tr [...]


    9. Maia makes her way to the Muirwood Abby after being banished by her father the king in book one of this series. She discovers her special ability is to open the Apse Vail and release the trapped spirits of the dead. This fantasy is well written and fairly easy to follow. The story is full of magic, good vs. evil and family politics. I did not read book one of the Covenant of Muirwood but will look for it soon.


    10. This was a much faster pace than the first book in the series. I'm glad I moved onto to book 2. I have to say, though, I am not a fan of the cliffhangers. I did enjoy how the characters seemed to develop much more in this read. I also appreciate this being offered as a kindleunlimited and I look forward to the next installment.



    11. We all face difficulties, but they should not become our core. We grieve, we suffer, we weep. Challenges are experiences that help us to grow. Storms are always temporary and should never distract us from the beautiful days that were before or will come after. Do not become so fixed on a single injustice that you can no longer remember others may be suffering near you. Like the healing of the body when it is ill, the healing of the heart requires patience. Hoofta, just typing out that quote alre [...]


    12. A good follow up to an okay first bookWhat I've gathered from reading these two books is that the author writes well. I like the writing style and I think the plot is well thought out. This is the second book in a trilogy and I thought it was much better than the first. It was very much so character driven and that was something I thought was missing from first book. The last half of the book is where the plot really picks up and I was so happy for it. I am invested in this series and these char [...]


    13. And now for the next oneI enjoyed this book, but I still feel the first series was better. I could barely put any of those books down, and I have been much slower in getting through these first two books. I do enjoy the subtle or not so subtle references to the court of Henry VIII, as I enjoy history, and the inspiration is well woven into this series. I also enjoyed reading about the developing relationships, though I felt like there could have been more. I feel for Maia in many ways, but her n [...]


    14. Ready for more!This was a seamless follow-up to The Banished of Muirwood, and I'm yet again rushing a review to start the next book. I suspect one of the some people won't like about Muirwood is exactly the aspects I enjoy. I inhaled Terry Brooks' Shannara series as a kid, then found David Eddings and Robert Jordan, and remember waiting to get my hand on each new release in those worlds. Each new book was like visiting of friends.I can definitely see the influence in these Muirwood books, which [...]


    15. IntrigueThe second book of the trilogy. In the author's words, he generally likes the second installment of a trilogy best. Ciphers does not disappoint. Although still somewhat naive, this is by far the best book in the Muirwood universe. Full of intrigues, politics, deception and betrayal, it still dedicates plenty of time to character development. It is nice to see the different challenges experienced by the characters and how those shape them and how they evolve. Again, still somewhat naive a [...]


    16. Well, this was another good addition to the series. I will rate it 5 stars because I enjoyed it immensely, however I had a few issues. I found the story quite hard to follow, it was very convoluted and confusing. But an interesting story none the less.(view spoiler)[ And I find it hard to believe, that after everything he did, that people would willingly follow the king again. Especially Dodd. I find it incredibly hard to believe he wouldn't want vengeance. But no, all the king gets is a slap on [...]


    17. Another great book by Jeff Wheeler. I really enjoyed the character development in this book. Unfortunately, after i was about halfway through the book i realized i might of read them out of order. I looked it up and i was definitely supposed to read the Legends of Muirwood trilogy first but i guess ill read that in a few months when i forget some the things i already know from reading this one. This book had a good climax but it did sizzle a little for me but thats not to say it wasnt good still [...]


    18. Getting to know youAs the author points out in his afterword, his second books delve a little more into relationships and personalities. Watching Maia and Collier's relationship grow (and also Suzenne and Dodd's), was one of my favorite parts of this book. Some have complained about the parallels the author draws between the belief in the Medium and Christianity. To me, it doesn't have to be Christianity but whatever your life's guiding force is. Embrace it, let it lead you. When you are quiet a [...]


    19. Another amazing book!I did not read the first series, and frankly, didn't need to to follow in this one. I founds myself having to force myself to sleep instead of reading. I was reading it on the elliptical,at the gym, while waiting for people and anywhere I could find time to read. When not reading it, I often found myself wondering what the characters in the book would be doing next. Amazing story and superb read!!!


    20. BoringI’ve been reading this book for weeks because it just never grabbed ahold of my attention. However, I’m the type of person that has to see a series through and I need to know what happens. Too many extremely boring and irrelevant details. I had to do a good deal of skimming to get through this. I’ll still read the next book. Overall this author is usually exceptional.


    21. PG 13Maia goes back to Muirwood abbey to become a mason and fulfill her destiny of opening the veils. She meets back up with her husband, whom she loves now. Lots of drama and intrigue. Maia does open the veils and uses them to try and save her step-mother, whom her father has condemned to die. She and her companions get captured and await their own death sentence.


    22. I enjoyed reading this book, but it harps too much on Maia marrying the right man in the right way. I also don't like when stories punish people for something that was out of their control. Still went straight to book three.


    23. The Ciphers b2Wonderful follow up of book one Maia's love is grown and the love between her and husband is real, but she is just stubborn one her commitment to her father. He should of Ben punished just like her. What's next


    24. Wow, I really enjoyed this second book as much as the first. The characters are further shaping and everything is continuing to build. I can't wait to read the last one to see how it all turns out. (It is difficult to see how things can turn out well sometimes)


    25. Reunions and trials and forgiveness. Sometimes it is not what you expected.A twist of events that I did not anticipate. To love enough to forgive, but not anticipate the result of the recipient.


    26. Excellent!Another fascinating book in the Muirwood series. I just can't get enough of it! Maia is enchanting and so real. You feel like you are right there with her. I love these books and all the symbolism in them.


    27. It was good to be back at Muirwood. While this book doesn’t have as much going on as the first book, it was still a satisfying sequel. In particular, the evolution of Collier in this series as been one of the brightest things.


    28. Really enjoying this series, Excellent!!! Must read for fantasy lovers!!!!Great story and characters Can't wait to read more of Princess Maia's adventures. Great storyline, great characters. Enjoy!!!! Happy Reading!!!!Tim


    29. Loved the second book in this series. A lot of on the edge of the seat moments for me. I listened to the audiobook version and there were numerous moments where I had to stop what I was doing to take in what was happening. Always a good sign of a good book, for me anyway.
