The history of this future world is nice hidden, with bits and pieces revealed very naturally – enough to satisfy the reader’s immediate curiosity without denying imagination. Of course, Roshike himself doesn’t know, and won’t learn everything in this book. There’s enough to reveal the slavery of security, the evil of financial ruin, and the flavor of good vs evil without ever quite knowing the why, though this reader, for one, hopes more will be revealed in future books. Roshike and his allies are surely a force for great change, filled with mystery, loyalty, strength and secret goodwill.
From technological marvel to mountain of peace, from hardscrabble city to smooth clean streets, and from death outside to life within, Whispers of the Dead is an enjoyable complete novel with the promise of more to come.
Disclosure: I won a copy and I offer my honest review.
World building in this novel was complex but also easy to follow. All aspects of the world came to life in very unique manner that really allowed me to picture it. I enjoyed the way that many aspects are developed subtly, creating an even more poignant and loud development. At the same time, Litherland has also left room for further development in future novels in the series.
Litherland is a wildly imaginative and skilful author who draws readers into the new and complex worlds that he creates. This is a fantastic launch to his new series.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
