"Rest assured if you like horror, comedy, dark fantasy, or anycombination of the three, you'll enjoy this book, complete with its very fantasy-ish sounding names like 'Marais Roi' and 'Cogar Ri.' But inorder to love any book, you must first love the lead character (orhis-her antagonist). I found Kinder to be relatable but complex,endearing in much the same vein as Peter Quill from GUARDIANS OF THEGALAXY (albeit a bit darker). To that end, you can expect a fair shareof snappy one-liners and hilarious throwback jokes.
What reallymakes THE WHISPER KING work is Radcliffe's storytelling. He's notoverly-pushy with his exposition and lets his characters do most of theheavy lifting. That said, I'm sure this book plays better for boys-men,as Kinder's coming-of-age tale will strike a coupe of familiar nerves.To that end, the first-person perspective really works here andRadcliffe complements it with a strong grasp of pacing." - Ain't It Cool News
About the Author
Wil Radcliffe first met the Whisper King when he was five-years-old. He heard the rasping voice late one night, pulling him from a fitful and bitter slumber. It was then this mysterious tyrant charged young Wil with a lifelong mission...to terrify his fellow mortals with tales of deep, primal horror.
And Wil has obeyed.
Because he hopes the Whisper King has beer.
And while he waits for alcoholic rewards he lives a fairly ordinary life in some cold, dark place in a realm ringed by skeletal trees and murky lakes. On some maps it is called "Michigan."
