Rhet guts fish for a living, content in obscurity until the day he is plucked from the wharves by nine exotic strangers and carted across the continent to a life-sentence of imprisonment. Though he has done nothing (as far as he knows) to warrant such capture, his captors are certain he will one day destroy the world if they do not prevent him. Though it is true that Rhet discovers great powers, he is neither villain nor hero. He is unique in a world where some can pull threads of wind from the air and weave it to do their bidding; he can bring wind into being where there is none. But a quest for domination begins to unravel the very fabric of the world, destroying the balance that must be maintained. It only took one to start the spiral toward chaos, but one alone cannot save the world, no matter how great his power. A new chapter in the story of the human race has begun. A slave will come to rule, a dockworker will meet his fate, and an unlikely group of companions will find themselves thrust to the forefront of the battle for life's existence. And man's future may be only Whispers in the Wind.

I really hate it when I can’t get into a book. For me, I love to read and I can pretty much get into any story. But this book I just could not. I struggled through out the first 50 pages. I kept pushing hoping I would get into it but I can’t.
My main problem with this book is the story line. It was not doing it for me. While I loved the characters and the world that is created around them, the story line was flat. There was no excitement, or umph, in at least for me. I really wanted to get into this book, but I couldn’t.
This is a good fantasy novel. If you like fantasy novels check this one. If may just be for you, but for me it was not.
I give it 2 BITES!
Happy Reading!


  1. Aw… darn. Looked like a good one, but I don’t think it would be for me either. I just can’t get into a flat storyline. Thanks for the honest review.
