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.
When I started reading Whisperers of Evernow I immediately was transported to this world. Yes it is a fight between good and evil, but the concept is not as usual. This ya tale is set in a fantasy world that feels like” a wicked fairytale”.
I am completely moved by Jeremiah, who is obligated to save his family to don’t exist anymore. As a Whisperer he has no identity, never speaks, just whispers the words the King wants. But is he the ruler of the Kingdom like he thinks or is it The Queen? For his power the King treats everyone bad, even his own flesh and blood. Rose, the Princess is afraid of her father and when she met Jeremiah she is intrigued and calls him her Prince. Can they both survive and save Jeremiah’s family and the other people. Is love possible in this dark and detailed narration or is Rose not to trust?
I loved the well-developed characters, the dark world and the original start of this series. I think this is a fast and creative book who young adults will adore but, as an adult and a fantasy lover I was excited by the wonderful imagination and fluently written story too. So, if you love this style of books, you will get dropped in a world who you want to read more about. I can’t wait to read to read the next one.
