Whispers of Shadow & Flame is Book I was a bit bummed that Whispers of Shadow & Flame wouldn't be continuing Jasminda and Jack's story, but I ended up falling in love with two new characters: Kyara and Darvyn. Kyara has a very rare type of magic. Instead of being an Earthsinger who can heal and do good, she's a Nethersinger and only brings death. Because of her unusual gift, the True Father uses her as an assassin. She's also bloodbound, so she must obey. Her next mission is to bring in the mysterious Shadowfox, but not kill him. He's the most powerful Earthsinger and the True Father must have his magic. Kyara doesn't want to, but she must, or die trying.Whispers of Shadow & Flame does take place at the same time as Song of Blood & Stone, which I thought I was cool. We got to see what was happening elsewhere which paints a broader picture of what was going on this world. In fact, there's a ton more excellent world-building. We get to see new places and meet all kinds of characters. I was particularly interested in the Avinids and the Physicks. I'm hoping there will be more of them in the next book(s). Of course, there's also a lot more about magic as Kyara and Darvyn are both extremely powerful and have essentially opposite powers.The romance in Whispers of Shadow & Flame was also great! Obviously, Darvyn is Kyara's assignment, but she doesn't know this at first. She's undercover and traveling with him as he rescues children who have been kidnapped and sold. They get to know each other and there's an attraction there, which makes it all the more difficult for her to carry out her mission. Everything is working against them! She can't help but betray him, and he can't help her with his Earthsong because of her Nethersong. But once they do finally get together, it's hot! Woah!That ending though! Whispers of Shadow & Flame ends on a cliffhanger! It takes us to the battle from the first book, but all is not well for Darvyn and Kyara! I need the next book!Read more of my reviews at Pinkindle Reads & Reviews..

  2. This is Book number 2 in a series, but you do not have to have read the first book, Song of Blood Stone, in the series to read Book 2 because they have different characters and a parallel timeline Although, you should totally read Book 1 because it s awesome.First can we talk about the cover I love covers that are Unapologetically black there is no hiding the character s race through shadow or outline, we see that this is a black book and I love it L Penelope has a knack for putting the perfect [...]


  3. I liked this dark fantasy set in another world, but I was at a disadvantage I think by not having read the first book If you have read and loved the first Earthsinger book you will perhaps give this one stars The trade size paperback was sent to me for an unbiased review I m impressed by the presentation as it is from a smaller press but it has a great cover, a map, professional layout and I didn t find any proofreading errors There are a few American spellings but not many modern American term [...]


  4. Another fabulous book from L Penelope I am quickly becoming a huge fan The second book in the Earthsinger Chronicles, this runs along side the events in the first book but following Darvyn and Kyara I admit I missed Jack and Jasminda quite a bit, but I grew to love these two just as much Fantastic world building This book explored of the world and different magic, that we didn t see in the first book You could probably read it as a stand alone, but I think it adds so much richness to this world [...]

  6. APB Perspective Review 4.75I am really enjoying this series , Darvyns and Kyara s is really good even though I have to wait for the next book to see how their story concludes Two people who are meant to be enemies connect and discover they aren t really enemies at all In a war between the Elsiran s and the Lagrimari things are not always what the seem and figuring out what is really going on is a journey that I truly enjoyed So now I wait for the next book in the series to see if I finally get y [...]


  7. Whether you re looking for a diverse read or a good fantasy, this could be the book for you The world feels lived in, the magic system is really cool, the plot fits together, the pacing is great, and the characters had me rooting for them The cast is almost entirely non white, since for the most part the light skinned characters are busy in another part of the world see book one , making the book a perfect feature for this blog well, aside from the romance aspect, but on that later I enjoyed ge [...]


  8. I received this book as an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review and it was SO SO SO GOOD.Rating 4.5Why not 5 stars you ask Because it was not a sequel exactly and I was DYING to read about Jasminda and Jack so yeah That being said, I don t know how L Penelope managed to write a book I d love even than Song of Blood Stone but somehow it happened I loved reading this book with everything I had The story follows Darvyn and Kyara in a tale that s parallel to Jack and Jasminda s story [...]


  9.

  10. Great addition.A great story Not exactly a prequel, but runs parallel to the last book The author has further expanded this already intricate world I hope there is a third in the series soon.
