Publisher's Summary

From the moment she was banished by her father, the king, Princess Maia journeyed to seek sanctuary at Muirwood Abbey, the epicenter of magic and good in the land. Now safe for the first time since her cruel abandonment, Maia must foster uneasy friendships with other girls training to be Ciphers: women who learn to read and engrave tomes of ancient power, despite the laws forbidding them to do so.

As Maia tries to judge whom to trust, she makes a shocking discovery: her destiny is to open the Apse Veil and release trapped spirits from her world. Then she learns that her father is coming to Muirwood Abbey to celebrate the Whitsunday festival - and Maia's estranged husband, whom she was forced to abandon, will join him. Torn between deadly political machinations and unstoppable spiritual forces, Maia must channel unknown powers within herself to save her friends, the abbey, and the entire kingdom of Muirwood.

    "enjoyable"

    This book kept my interest and left me wanting to know what happens next. I would like to have seen more character description of the king but at the end I discovered this was not the first book in a series so maybe that happened elsewhere.

    "Good for a second book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Ciphers of Muirwood the most enjoyable?

    The story continued and did not disappoint.


    What other book might you compare The Ciphers of Muirwood to and why?

    Not sure


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the scenes with Collier her husband. Not mushy but interesting in how he treats her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How she described her feelings, love which she didn't know, trying not to go to sleep, so full of her emotions this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Made me ready for the third and last book, this book answered questions and gave you more questions.

    Story
    "Excellent character building story."

    Jeff Wheeler stated in his concluding remarks that the second book of a series is usually his favorite because things slow down a bit and main characters gain more depth. Well, I certainly agree that this book achieved that goal.
    In this installment, Princess Mya finally goes to Muirwood Abby to study as a Cipher. Though girls are not allowed to learn how to read, Mya has been able to do so since childhood. She thought that she was the only one in the kingdom, but now she meets many other girls that wish to become mastons and learn to read during the night. We are introduced to the Aldermaston and his wife of Muirwood who immediately connect with Mya. We also get to know Mya's Grandmother the High Seer more in this book. Mya is given a companion who knows about Mya's brand and shadow stains. Through this story, Mya finally begins to have trustworthy people surround and support her mission to become a Maston and open the Apse vail once again.
    Yes the characters become fully three dimentional in this book, but there are also character building quotes shared throughout the book. Mya shows us how compassion and meekness are not weakness but great strengths of character. Though safe behind the walls of Muirwood, the adventual confrontation between The king of Comoros and his Princess daughter comes to pass. Mya must pass the Maston test in about six months time or consequences not only for Muirwood abby but the entire Maston order will occur. She must stand up to many people including King Giddion her husband.
    Though Mya loves her father she cannot condone his actions. She grieves for her King father and the consequences he will suffer for his choices. I know that this is just a story, but Mya's character qualities are to be emulated. There is great power in forgiveness especially when it is not deserved. There is power in love, peace, mercy, and patience in the midst of struggle, as well as gentle responses in the face of cruelty. All these things are shown and remind me what it truly means to be a Christian. You may disagree with my perspective and that's okay. But this book is wonderful and I will be rereading this one many times in the future.

    "Wonderful series to enter into"

    I absolutely loved this second part to the story. You see the relationship between Maya and Collier grow and there are three generations of strong women banding together to overcome their predicament. I think it says quit a bit about the author that he portrays women as strong and independent and just as capable as a man to "save the world". Maya shows such compassion and it makes you strive to be more like her in real life.

    "Fantastic Continuation"

    The character development in this book is fantastic! Especially Collier. There's less action, but still gripping. Kate Rudd, as always, does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life.

    Story
    "Very Creative storyline!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ciphers of Muirwood to be better than the print version?

    In a way. The Narrator was good enough to make a difference. Some Narrators can ruin a story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ciphers of Muirwood?

    The end when Maia stood up to her father the King was what I was waiting for.


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good voice that takes the time to express what she is reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The King was so cruel to his own daughter.....unbelievable!


    Any additional comments?

    I want to read more and am saving up for purchasing another installment. Jeff has quite a few Muirwood books out.
