The Book of WhispersTuscany 1096 AD Luca young heir to the title of Conte de Falconi sees demons Since no one else can see them Luca must keep uiet about what he seesLuca also has dreams dreams that sometimes predict the future Luca sees his father murdered in one s. This book took me by surprise has been so fun full of magic and action I want to thank to NetGalley and Text Publishing Company for providing me with this copy in exchange for an honest review 45 Strars You can find this and of my reviews on my blog A Book A ThoughtI was a bit worried when I started with it since it's a historical fiction I wasn't sure if it would catch me but the promise of demons and magic kept me interested and when I was halfway through the book I realized that the fact that it was a historical fiction hadn't affected in any way my enjoyment for it in fact it has made me feel confident to try of the genre soon The book begins in Tuscany around the year 1090 I'm sorry I don't remember the year exactly following Luca he's the young heir to the title of Count of Falconi which is a great weight on his shoulders but the big issue here is that he's able to see demons and also has premonitory dreams of what seems to be the murder of his father this is something that torments Luca for which he decides although it's prohibited to him to follow his father on his journey from Italy towards Jerusalem in the crusades along with Suzana a girl with a mysterious lineage who can also see demons and from here they begin with their adventure I had heard some people say that it was a rather slow book to read and that you enter the main story just after a couple of chapters and I can say that it's actually true you get into the real plot maybe after the 100 pages but I didn't find it difficult to get into it in fact I think that everything that happens before is super important since we know the main character his family and his affections and for me it has been enjoyableI like Luca as main character I think he has an inner strength that has trapped me he has made me want to discover everything as much as he I think he's a young man a bit careless at first a little clumsy with his actions but he grows a lot during his journey and that's great I still like it very much as it's a character who defends what he thinks that has been super valued Suzana has been incredible she's a great leader she's very strong and mysterious and I think in the end her story has catch me much it's very interesting I think it would be amazing if there would be a seuel at some point but on the other hand it's a book that seems to me to be very good on its own so if you're looking for a stand alone and you enjoy historical fiction then it's a book that you should try besides being very entertaining has also been very informative for me I learned about the crusades and the passings of the time and I liked that aspect of itThe book is narrated in a very nice but simple way but it has cost me a bit of getting used to it in fact now that I've finished itI don't really feel that this is a book that falls into the YA category but I've found it like a Middle Grade since the only thing by which it's considered a YA book is for the age of the characters I think the writer has focused a lot on the aspect of the adventure leaving everything uite simple which may like you once you enter into it even though I feel that for me I would have liked to know about why certain things happened and the why of some actions or to know about some characters but it ends up being enjoyable although I've lacked a little bit to be really a solid readAnyway I highly recommend it if you want to go on a very entertaining journey full of demons magic and love as well as being located in a super interesting historical moment

Uch dream and vows to stop it coming true Even if he has to go against his father’s wishes and follow him on the great pilgrimage to capture the Holy LandsWhen Luca is given an ancient book that holds some inscrutable power he knows he’s been. DNF 61%There's a distinct oddness to this book It's a YA book set during the crusades We have a lead gal and guy from very different walks of life I was really enjoying the demons and stories of our characters right up until they met each other 45% in And then all of a sudden the magic was gone Yet ironically the introduction of a lot of convenient magic shortly after that is what turned me off in the end I love fantasy but magic needs to be used so as not to just set up convenient ways to travel time to change items to only work for some etc It's like every magical thing that happens in this book is very convenient As this is one of my biggest pet peeves ever I decided I was done with The Book of Whispers It may very well have an amazing and profound ending but getting there just got too difficult The last couple days I've thought to read this book my response is very dull Like I'm not really interested Once I'm reading that improves but it's almost like this book is a slump in and of itself I am giving it two stars even though I didn't finish it I have a few reasons for still liking much of it 1 the writing is uite good I would look forward to and read a future book by Kimberley Starr 2 our two main characters are interesting people They could use a bit depth and emotion during their POV scenes but overall I didn't dislike either of them 3 the demon concept is interesting and ties in very well to the time period The crusades were a time of massive superstition religious war and all around distrust The setting is well chosen The main things that need improving 1 as discussed above not using magic as a convenient excuse for plot to happen2 the adults surrounding our two teens need to have a bit development to really add depth to the story 3 historical facts are pretty few and far between in this If you're going to use a famous time in history it's best to make sure you really understand why it happened 4 there is excitement missing from this book Lots of exciting things happen but somehow I didn't get excited during them A great writer makes you feel what your characters feel and puts you in the scene and story Overall if you are very intrigued by the book blurb then check it out But if you have hundreds of other books to read I'd skip this one That said I would still read Starr again in the hopes that her writing improves I think there is real potential for her and I hope to see from her To read this and of my reviews visit my blog at Epic Reading Please note I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley This is an honest and unbiased review

I'm not sure where to start with The Book of Whispers because I was all over the place with my thoughts on this book When I say I'm a fan of historical fiction I mean I'm a huge fan of Victorian England historical fiction So 11th century Tuscany wasn't something I ever thought I'd be super interested in And I have to admit when I first started the book I wasn'tWhen The Book of Whispers begins we find Luca at home dealing with his cousin whose character reminded me of that annoying tag on that sweater you never wear because the tag drives you crazy That was Narlo's character in a nutshell so at first when I thought Narlo would be one of the main antagonists I was disappointedThe book was very slow to start and with longish chapter lengths I was concerned the book would take forever to pick up It didn't When permanent characters came into play like Suzan and Sir Mattiolas the book became much relatable and enjoyable as I began to see the different facets that made up each character as they interacted with each other I actually ended up reading the last 60% of the book overnight and finished it around 6 AM this morning  that's how much this book picked upThis book has nearly everything Demons war love magic what else do you really want in a YA fantasy novel amirite The only thing that really bothered me was that I'm not a huge fan of first person present tense writing but with the uality of the story I was able to overlook my preference in writing style and enjoy the book nonetheless
