Synopsis

A Whisper of Wolves by Kris Humphrey

When a raven drops a white feather at the doorstep on the day of your birth, it is a symbol of your destiny. You are a Whisperer - a guardian of the wild. After many years of peace in the kingdom of Meridina, rumours are spreading of a planned invasion - could the demonic Narlaw be returning from the darklands? It is up to the Whisperers and their animal companions to defend Meridina, protect Princess Ona and stop the Narlaw from destroying their world. When hunters from her village disappear without a trace, Alice suspects that something sinister is at work. With the help of Storm, her wolf companion, Alice fights to save her village. The Narlaw are on the attack and it's up to the Whisperers to stop them...

Reviews

The world is original and the novel fast paced with the reader hooked until the end on both storylines and left eager to the next instalment in the four-part series.

-- A wonderful tale filled with enchanting characters.

-- Plenty of action and a well-constructed plot will keep the reader's attention - and have them waiting eagerly for the next book in the quartet.
