A while ago, Rachel Lightfoot sent me a copy of Whispers on the Wind to review. It took me a while to get this done. This is no fault of Rachel’s. Whispers just ended up taking a backseat to life.
Anyways, Whispers on the Wind did take me a little bit to get into. It starts off following Luccio, a lesser fae who lives in The Glen. The Glen being a parallel world where the Fae live and watch us. We learn that Luccio has been watching a young woman named Bree and learns that another Fae plans to kidnap her. Rather than allow him to kidnap her, he kidnaps her instead.
What follows is an adventure throughout Faeryland. We meet different types of fae, both big and small. All seem to have their own agendas, and it’s not always immediately clear what those are. The good guys can end up being bad, the bad guys good, or typically somewhere in between.
The conclusion of Whispers of the Wind leaves little doubt that Rachel plans on continuing the story, and that there is more to come.
For me, Whispers on the Wind starts off a little slow, then quickly picks up. I enjoyed the book, and look forward to more from Rachel. I give it a solid 4 out of 5.
