Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Whisperers of Evernow. Check out my review and let me know if this sounds like something you would read.
When the King owns your words, who will own your heart?
Manipulated by a vicious King, Jeremiah is stripped of his identity and forced into a life of silent submission as a Whisperer. Allowed only to speak at the command of the King, one thousand Whisperers must line up in rows and chant their sadistic ruler’s darkest desires. As each evil wish comes true, the King’s power over his impoverished kingdom grows.
When Jeremiah’s fears for the family he left behind are confirmed, he turns in desperation to the most unlikely person for help—the King’s eldest daughter. But is Princess Rose as kind as she is beautiful, or will she lure him into a trap?
To save those dearest to him, Jeremiah has no choice but to put his trust in Rose, whose own life is threatened as her father prepares to clear the path to the throne for his newborn son. Together they embark on a bold plan to overthrow the King and set the Whisperers free.
As love blossoms in this most unlikely place, Jeremiah and Rose must discover how to use the power of the spoken word to conquer more than just the kingdom. They will need to conquer their hearts.
The first book in the spellbinding The Kingdoms of Evernow series, this is a must-read by award-winning author, Heidi Catherine.
OH MY GOSH, THIS BOOK! This is obviously my kind of book, and I knew that going in. What I didn’t know was just how incredible The Whispers of Evernow was going to be. Heidi Catherine is very talented when it comes to creating an intricate and rich world. I could easily see the locations and the themes of power, corruption, romance and betrayl were very obvious. With action, romance, adventure and polictics, The Whispers of Evernow is everything a fantasy lover wants in a novel!
The characters are very intriguing and well written. I could easily distinguish each character and I loved the multiple points of views. I felt like I knew each character (some, I wish I didn’t know!), and I loved every minute of it.
I can’t find anything negative to say about this novel. I am so looking forward to reading more from this author and continuing in this series. This is definitely going in my favorites of 2019!! Check this one out!
