Nella magica terra di Muirwood, Lia è cresciuta conoscendo servitù e sottomissione. È una miserabile, una reietta cui non è dovuto alcun rispetto e alla quale è precluso ogni segreto custodito tra le antiche mura dell’Abbazia che la ospita. Ma Lia sa che, prima o poi, la sua occasione di riscatto arriverà e che i suoi giorni da serva nelle cucine dell’Aldermaston sono destinati a finire. Quando un armigero di nome Colvin viene trovato sanguinante davanti alla porta delle cucine, Lia sente che è proprio lui la persona con cui provare a cambiare la propria sorte. Sulle tracce del ragazzo ci sono i sicari del perfido sceriffo Almaguer, fedele servitore del re e acerrimo nemico di coloro che, come Colvin, si sono ribellati alla sua malvagia autorità. In una terra sconvolta dalla guerra, Lia intraprende un viaggio pericoloso ma allo stesso tempo rivelatore, alla scoperta di antichi segreti e arti magiche, che la porterà a scoprire in sé stessa doti che neanche immaginava possedere e che invece potrebbero segnare le sorti della sua meravigliosa avventura. Un romanzo avvincente, straordinario, il primo capitolo di una storia magica e meravigliosa, con un’eroina destinata a entrare nei cuori di ogni lettore.

In the ancient and mystical land of Muirwood, Lia has known only a life of servitude. Labeled a "wretched," an outcast unwanted and unworthy of respect, Lia is forbidden to realize her dream to read or write. All but doomed, her days are spent toiling away as a kitchen slave under the charge of the Aldermaston, the Abbey's watchful overseer. But when an injured squire named Colvin is abandoned at the kitchen's doorstep, an opportunity arises. The nefarious Sheriff Almaguer soon starts a manhunt for Colvin, and Lia conspires to hide Colvin and change her fate. In the midst of a land torn by a treacherous war between a ruthless king and a rebel army, Lia finds herself on an ominous journey that will push her to wonder if her own hidden magic is enough to set things right. At once captivating, mysterious, and magic-infused, The Wretched of Muirwood takes the classic fantasy adventure and paints it with a story instantly epic, and yet, all its own.
