Publisher's Summary

The Bronze Age saw the beginning of empires, as well as their mysterious and catastrophic end. In a world not unlike our own, the nomadic Whisperers of the Gods have been given a grave vision of the gods destroying the world in a great flood, and they send three messengers to the great empires in hopes of appeasing the gods. Finding themselves in strange new lands with even stranger customs, the Whisperers soon discover the hardest thing is not only convincing the kings and queens to listen, but also reaching their destinations without falling prey to the dangers and temptations of these new lands. In this first novel, listeners experience a lost age where the gods live in the wind and waves, and beasts lurk in the dark.

most unique historical fantasy

We met the author at a bookstore in Kingston, ON a few months ago and she told us it would be coming out as an audiobook soon. We just drove across the country from NY to NV, and this story got us from Lake Ontario to the Mississippi. The story is unique and engaging- I already feel attached to the characters. I am an archaeologist, and I appreciate how well researched the history is. The story takes you to several different parts of this fictional bronze age world, from the nomadic desert tribes to the jungle (based on the ancient Maya/Aztec) to the big river civilization (based on ancient Egypt). The world building and character development are incredible, and the imagery is very descriptive. I love the cultural interactions between the characters from different lands. Wow! Can't wait for the next one!
