The struggle to save the plague-ridden kingdoms continues in this captivating second novel in the Whispers from Mirrowen series.
The orphan Phae has kept her innate ability secret since she was young. Not only does she possess the dangerous fireblood, but she can also steal the memories of anyone who looks into her eyes.
Phae has no idea that her combination of powers is extraordinary. She is the unwitting key to discovering the secret origin of the plagues... and she is also now a target. The ruthless Arch-Rike of Kenatos has sent his most menacing servant — the Quiet Kishion — to destroy her.
As Phae struggles to wield her powers and escape her pursuers, a team of allies has already been dispatched on a quest to end the plagues. Some face the horrors in the Arch-Rike’s secret lair, while others search for the fabled lost Shatalin temple.
The determined allies must square off against the Arch-Rike, who is ever steadfast in his aim to kill Phae... and let the plagues rage on.
BE IT KNOWN THAT: We have locked Jeff Wheeler away in Muirwood Abbey for a couple of years and have commanded him to write many more adventuresome books. He is permitted free time to roam the grounds under heavy guard. After he has written enough books that we can scarcely read them all in a lifetime, we may finally become, in our old age, sated in our quest for new characters and lands. Perhaps then, all would be well in the kingdom.
TRANSLATION: Jeff took an early retirement from his career at Intel in 2014 to become a full-time author. He is, most importantly, a husband and father, a devout member of his church, and is occasionally spotted roaming hills with oak trees and granite boulders in California or in any number of the state's majestic redwood groves.
