The excitement, the detail and the energy kept this reader totally involved right up to the final page. Beautifully ed characters, breath taking settings and a totally engrossing plot makes this novel one not to be missed.” ~ Christine for Inked Rainbow Reads
Two decades ago a great deafening silence entered the world. Since then, the winds have mysteriously vanished. And with the disappearing of the wind, the magic held by the once mighty, immortal Sky Whisperers was shattered. Their influence over the natural world lost. The world of Lorian is dying.
All Nemsa has ever known is a world without wind.
Strangely, the winds stayed away around the day of her birth, twenty five years ago, setting off a chain of disastrous events including a fatal sickness. And for that the girl is both tormented and shunned.
Unaware of her involvement in this, she leads a small, miserable life in a mountain village; close to where she was found as a baby.
When one day Nemsa meets alluring Xenthia–a mystifying Sky Whisperer–it becomes clear that Nemsa’s path lies far above all she is familiar with. Beyond her village and the Lower Sky, past the red, dusty mountains even, and up to the unknown lands of the Upper Sky Dome to the realm of the Sky Whisperers.
But how can crippled and one-eyed Nemsa’s destiny be linked with that of the much older, immortal SkyWhisperer she grows fonder of by the day? What is expected of her? More so–how can frail Nemsa ever hope to stand up against the supremacy of a vengeful, ambitious Sun Whisperer? Will the courage in her heart be enough?
Magic is at work, a fatal sickness is spreading among mortals and immortals alike, the sun is brutally beating down, and the fate of all hangs in the balance. And if Nemsa is to fulfil her destiny and save the world, she must find her way through it all…
Follow Nemsa and Xenthia in this Epic, Dystopian, NA, Lesbian Fantasy tale of courage, interracial love, redemption, and hope.
“I was left so impressed by the author of this novel. To write any good novel is an accomplishment, to write a fantasy novel and have the reader totally believe in it takes an exceptional writer. A wonderfully written and intriguing tale, full of passion, excitement, danger and love. What also made this story so special was the way the author presented the tale first from Nesma’s point of view then the same concept from Xenthia’s experience. This was a truly unique take on relating their intriguing quest.
“A sparkling compelling story. It was original, inventive and very well written. There was a budding love story, jealousy, greed and power. All of this were captured in this story. I loved how the story unfolded, it was sometimes heart pounding. I can sincerely say it held me spellbound.” ~ Loek
