Rate this:

Dahl, rightful ruler of Taun, has brought peace and prosperity to his world, a world that had been doomed for so long to the shadow of The Usurper. Now Catryn, Seer of Taun, has suddenly appeared with news that Dahl prayed he would never have to hear: "The evil has returned."

Whisperings of Magic is the gripping sequel to Dragonfire, a thrilling fantasy of a young boy who saved his kingdom and restored his birthright, at the same time conquering the most dangerous force of all -- his own fear. Dragonfire was Karleen Bradford's most acclaimed novel ever, with Maclean's enthusing, "Dahl's final battle with The Usurper is one of the most thrilling encounters with the shadow in children's literature. . . . an unforgettable experience of initiation." In a starred review, Quill & Quire called it "an absorbing tale about a complex and fascinating period."

Now, in Whisperings of Magic, the evil appears poised to strike again, and this time Catryn knows that she must ally her formidable power with Dahl's. Only together can they save Taun.

Like Dragonfire, Whisperings of Magic is a multi-layered novel, an action-packed epic fantasy, a story of good vs. evil and a powerful look at the redemptive power of friendship.
