Happy Friday! Today, I am reviewing a wonderful book by author Ed Drury. What first drew my attention to this novel was the title and the cover art. When I was a teen, I wanted to be a marine biologist more than anything in the world. However, Fate had other plans for me, but I still love the ocean and any animal that lives in it (ask anyone who knows me about my many goldfish and fish tanks which have taken over my office!).
The Whale Whisperers of Ensorclea is a fantasy with a very important, underlying message. Everything about this book - from the characters to the story - worked well together. I could tell Drury took a lot of time with his characters and penned them with much love. The king - trying so hard to help his people and do what is right versus what is practical, while mourning the loss of his wife. His faithful friend and scientist, Levi - who goes on a journey to help the king find the cause of his wife's death and discovers something about himself that changes his life forever. Rrawk and Tsabai, two of the Whale Whisperers who show us that life isn't so much about the possessions one might have, but about the love of people around us and the beauty of the earth which so many are too blind to see. I could go on and on, but I don't want to give too much away! This story is one you must read yourself to fully appreciate the heart-felt morals and beautiful descriptions.
In closing, I would like to say that although the book ended well, with no unanswered questions, there is definitely enough curiosity about the characters to wonder what may happen to them next! Hint-hint, Mr. Drury! A sequel would be nice! I would recommend this wonderful story to anyone - from kids to adults! There is much to be learned and enjoyed; this book is the total package!
Character development is steady, not too much at a time, and you grow to love, admire, or intensely dislike what the characters do or represent. Universal themes are presented in subtle, illustrative ways and exemplified by the actions of the cast. Deep emotions: humor, love, anger, hate, etc. - are all felt and expressed in a pleasing and realistic balance.
It is obvious the author put a lot of thought into this incredible story. It is a worthy read for anyone who has a love for all living things. The book would benefit from some fine polishing and closer editing, but the story is so good that any distractions were minor and you couldn't wait to read the next page. This novel reminded me of the classic novel Jonathan Livingston Seagull, not so much in the storyline, but in the way it makes you think and feel. Ed Drury has a gem here and I hope he has a sequel in mind.
The pace was a bit slow but the lessons taught are fast and true.
The story is told from several perspectives that weave in and out of each other throughout, eventually bringing it all together at its conclusion. I especially enjoyed the world of Whale Whisperers, purely because of how unique it is. Another point I enjoyed was the authors handle of conflict. Where many authors would take the obvious road and show the most aggressive direction (fighting, guns and such), Drury goes his own way and resolves the situation in a way that is far more level headed, but thoroughly enjoyable. If you're looking for something a little different, you should check this out.
