Kimberley Starr ↠ The Book of Whispers book

Thrown into an adventure that will lead to places beyond his understanding But with the help of Suzan the beautiful girl he rescues from the desert he will realise his true uest to defeat the forces of man and demon that wish to destroy the worl A refreshingly original and gripping novel “We cry enough tears to salt our meal to fill our flasks” The year is 1096 Pope Urban II calls for a military expedition to regain the Holy Land This uest is now known as the First Crusade Luca is the heir to the title of Conte de Falconi He is not an ordinary young man He sees things other people can't see He knows there are demons attached to every object a human holds dear He has strange dreams that may predict the future He becomes the owner of the most powerful book that holds secrets others would kill for He joins the pilgrimage He doesn't even know what he's destined for and whom he'll meet Writing a book set in this particular time period and making sure that some demon action happens as well is something I never came across in YA literature Being innovative though means taking risks and expecting some high hopes from your readers I can't say I was completely mind blown by this novel but I can't say I did not enjoy it either because that would be an outright lie This book was a pleasant adventure However if I had to evaluate this book merely based on the setting my rating would not be that high The Book of Whispers is a plot and character driven novel and sometimes there isn't enough historical background to accompany the story The plot itself is based on history but the details are what make a historical novel good The clothing the architecture could be described and focused on a bit That way the book would engage the reader's imagination even better Even so I do believe that a lot of research went into this book “There's an eternity of a kind in words” When it comes to the writing there was a contrast to it Occasionally it felt too simple when other times it was very mature I'm not even sure to what age group I would recommend this book to It does feel middle gradish but the characters are in their late teens and there are some brutal scenes that are probably inappropriate for a younger audience “Our mortal enemies make vile accusations but they don't have to change who we are” Generally speaking I liked the characters Not all of them are well developed but some of them grew on me that's trueLuca seemed a little spoiled but I won't elaborate too much on that since he is a man of power with a future title on his shoulders Although spoiled he was kind hearted and likeable The one thing that bothered me was him constantly acting on a whim Luca would often act impulsively And he reminded me of a dog A dog thinks Oh I'm thirsty and runs to the water bowlThis book is an easy relaxing and fun read that could be enjoyed by anyone whose expectations aren't too high➨ An E arc of this book was provided to me by the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you

The Book of Whispers Tuscany 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 I couldn't get into this one at all although the premise was really good It's YA but really didn't feel it The idea of every little thing having it's own demon felt a little weird It made for a very busy world I liked the idea of the magic and demons but for me it didn't gel well with the crusades story This is the second book recently I've read that's tried to do this and I didn't like that either so maybe this is just a style that isn't for me This one just wasn't my book Free arc from netgalley
