I received a BETA copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Jordan C. Robinson!
This makes me really excited, because this is a real step up for Robinson. As his first fantasy novel, The Last Whisperer is full of promise. Robinson has given us a complex and original world which he carefully and meticulously built, characters which you grow attached to and route for, and fantastic(al) DRAMA.
Robinson has not only written a good novel, but created a doorway for so many different story lines with the characters. As much as this is a, what I call, "set-up"book for the sequel, this does not read as one. There is plenty of action, revelation, and excitement.
I totally forgot to mention. The type of magic in this book is so cool and original! It's extremely hard to be original nowadays, but Robinson has managed it!
I believe Robinson has finally found his stride, and am extremely excited to read the second one!
