more focus, miss mori

I'm a cinematic addict but I like books, too.

The Wretched of Muirwood (Muirwood, #1)

The Wretched of Muirwood (Muirwood, #1) - Jeff Wheeler Wow! That was a surprisingly great book. This reminds me of fantasy trilogies I read when I was younger (namely, Land of Elyon and Redwall) with a dash of Lord of the Rings. The writing is clever and yet serious at the same time, without being overbearing or self-absorbed... with one caveat. The characters all talk as if they despise contractions and slang and love monologuing for one another. Other than that, the story makes up for the slight pompousness that is dialogue.

Also, it's a quick read if you're a nocturnal bookworm like I am.
