Whispers of a Legend - Carrie James Haynes

I loved the characters in this story and the conflicts kept me intrigued enough to keep turning the pages. Kela, Euchoun, a protector of warriors, is a fearless young miss - a Sordarin - who grabs your heart right from the start. As a small child, her family- betrayed by their own - send the children - baby Sareta, young Falco and Kela - to safety in the protection of an old warrior Turstan and a nanny Gunilda. Years pass until one day, after a short battle where Kela defends her family against warriors sent by her own people; Kela finds that her special powers have increased. The children return home to their family's castle in the land of Scarladin to meet their grandfather who is king. He orders a ceremony to be held where he acknowledges Kela's brother as heir and her sister as the court's beloved, but in Kela's case he imprisons her instead. Years spent in the forbidden forest befriended only by her teacher and another who has similar powers, she waits to be recalled. It takes a war for that to happen. Finally she has the chance to show courage and try to win the affection of her grandfather. While on the mission, she not only bonds with a wonderful man and falls in love, but she excels in bravery, saving the land. Unfortunately, her grandfather holding an unknown transgression against her banishes her once again.
This is the debut book for Ms. Haynes, and because of this reason, I felt justified in giving her 5 stars in spite of some editing problems that I just ignored as I got caught up in the story.

I love a story so well-crafted as to suck me in from page one and keep me rivoted, so that when I reach the end, I feel a tinge of regret the story's over. Ms. Haynes gives her readers an opening scene that pulls one in for the emotional,romantic and danger-filled ride. This is in many ways a coming of age story with a female bent, rather than the typical male coming of age story. Kela develops and grows in an admirable, satisfying manner. Cona will make you sigh. These are the kind of characters one loves to cheer for, so much so that I can't wait for her next installment in this series. Simply loved it!

Carrie creates a world full of mystery and magic. Her characters are endearing and complicated. I find Kela, the heroine, most intriguing because she is at once a lovely feminine woman but born to be a warrior. And she has to fight for recognition of her destiny in a world where women aren't allowed to be that strong. All women will cheer for her. Cono, the winged warrior is a luscious hero. Part One was a satisfying read and at the same time left me anxious to read Part Two.

Whispers Of A Legend (part one) Carrie James Haynes

The tension was palpable from the first few lines of this intriguing story as the heroine Kela, comes to terms with the loss of her parents and the only life she has ever known.

Kela was born a Euchoun, destined to become a mighty warrior who would save her people the Sordarins.

Hidden away and guarded for many years Kela, her brother Falco and sister Sareta, are finally reunited with their grandfather, King Edulf of Scarladin, supreme ruler of the Sordarins, but things don't turn out as expected for them. Whilst Falco and Sareta are welcomed with open arms, Kela is banished from her grandfather's kingdom and lives in exile in a haunted forest.
I wouldn't say this was exactly a romance in the usual sense, but it does have a romantic theme in the form of a handsome, brave warrior Cono, who wins Kela's heart.
This is an exciting story full of wonderfully written battle scenes and acts of magic. It will leave you eager to read part 2.

I reread this book over the weekend and realized I enjoyed it just as much as the first time I read it several months ago. I felt myself delightfully immersed in the world created by Ms. Haynes. Her style and voice made the book extremely difficult to put down. I highly recommend this read.
