Publisher's Summary

Seventeen years ago, a long and bloody rebellion wracked the six united regions of the Kingdom. Now the new King wields the vast and unvanquished army of Midlan with his right hand, and with his left has granted a small group of thugs, the nobles he calls his Sovereign Five, unbridled rule over the other regions. As if this weren't bad enough, the King has also outlawed the practice of whispering - which is a problem for Kael.
It's not like he asked to be born a whisperer: He didn't ask for his strange healing powers any more than he asked to be the village runt. And when he rescues a wounded girl from the perils of the Unforgivable Mountains, his luck only gets worse. She couldn't have been just any girl: She had to be Kyleigh - the sword-wielding renegade knight with all of Midlan on her trail. Then one miserable, snowy evening, things go from bad to worse, and Kael is left with no choice but to follow Kyleigh down the mountains and into the tumultuous lowlands. She leads him on one mad quest after the next - eventually pulling off an act of such mischievous proportions that it threatens to change the Kingdom as they know it.

Really enjoyed this listen. Gripping story and excellent narrator. Immediately purchased the sequel and am eagerly awaiting the 3rd.

Fun fantasy, bit too much emotion for me... :)

Great book but the story hangs a bit too much off the emotional tie between two characters, it's like watching your favourite series carry into another season with the story arcs never quite closing... Shae has more than enough craft and creativity so it's just a teeny bit frustrating. I enjoyed the book though and escaped into hours of well written story. I definitely recommend it old fantasy fans. One more thing to mention while I think about it, the scenes which include our red headed hero were often an anti climax the way they were described, there is very little explanation about how the magic works so it's difficult, at least for me, to paint the picture fully, I've just bought the second book though, so hoping it's just a case of stringing me along :)
