About the Author
Jeff Wheeler took an early retirement from his career at Intel in 2014 to become a full-time author. He is, most importantly, a husband and father, and a devout member of his church. He is occasionally spotted roaming hills with oak trees and granite boulders in California or in any number of the state's majestic redwood groves.

This book, and indeed the entire series, is otherworldly. If you have read J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Stephen Donaldson, Terry Brooks, Katherine Kurtz, or maybe even Anne McCaffrey, then you probably should read this series by Jeff Wheeler. If you like the stories and the settings and the plot twists, no matter how implausible they seem to the organized mind, then you will probably like this series of books. If you enjoy thinking about creatures and entities and yes, people, who have strange and wonderful powers of the body and of the mind, then you will like these books. If you sometimes wonder about the origin of our earth and the potential for a parallel existence, or portals through which travel, no matter how ill-advised, leads to unknown or perilous events, then you will definitely like these books. If you enjoy strong characters who work and fail then try again and again eventually overcoming dangers and situations that we can barely imagine...or maybe not....then you really should read these books.
These books represent a unique portrayal of a "modern" concept of story telling called "fantasy fiction..". There are a lot of fantasy writers out there. Some of them are outstanding, some not so much. There are a lot of books that "borrow" characterizations from the masters. There are some series' that defy description when it comes to length and number of books, each one getting progressively worse than those that came before. So when I say that these books are "unique", that is really saying something. I like these books. I really do like them. This book, the final chapter in the 'Whispers From Mirrowen' trilogy, is at least as good as the two that preceded it...and that is saying quite a lot given the numbers of sequels that fail so miserably when a well-intentioned author runs out of steam or worse yet, just loses interest.
I am giving this book, and indeed the whole series, four stars. Why not five..?? Well, since you asked. I believe there are a few authors in this genre that do a great job. They develop their characters and deliver on the promise of exciting adventures. They stretch our minds and through "suspension of disbelief" allow us to become absorbed in the stories. Jeff Wheeler is one of those authors. He is not Tolkien, or Donaldson....yet. But he writes a good story. Try these books. I think you will really enjoy them.
Mr. Wheeler, count me as one of your top fans. I will read everything you publish.
The pace in this book is also amazing. From start to finish, you just can’t find a good place to stop and put the book down. It’s intense. I stayed up until 2AM to finish it, and it was completely worth losing sleep over. The reveal at the climax of the book (no spoilers, I promise) is inspired, and surprising, yet fits perfectly with the story. Sometimes, when I finish reading a book, and particularly a trilogy or series, even with a satisfying ending there are often threads left hanging. Not this book. Every question is answered, every curiosity satisfied. It’s a wonderful culmination and closure, even if I’m a bit sad to know I may not get to spend time with these particular friends again – and yes, they feel like friends. That’s part of the strength of all of Wheeler’s books. You don’t just know the people, you really like them. Not in spite of their flaws, but because of them!
I’ve loved pretty much everything this author has written, but was really impressed with this book and how it came together. I’ll be anxiously awaiting anything and everything yet to come from him.
NOTE: I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

The story could have been concluded in two books.
I am a big fan of Jeff Wheeler and enjoy his other novels.
