    Fantastic Debut!

    So. … I’m supposed to be a writer who can forms words to adequately express my thoughts and feelings, but what do you do when you don’t know how to put them into words? Case in point, this book. It was a delightfully, beautifully, breathe-stealing tale that made me cry by the end because it was so powerful. Delightful in how the author really weaves a story that blew me away and how I went from despising one character to hoping his life doesn’t end. Beautiful in that everything I’ve been reading about the Whisperers bears the fullest fruit by the end, making me cry as a result. Breathe-stealing because how many times am I going to clinch my hands in a fist, almost wanting to pray no one gets injured, dies, or suddenly disappears. Maybe this review doesn’t fully convey how powerful this story was, but C.W. Briar is officially an author on my watch list. There is not turning back from this. And not sure I would want to anyway Fantastic debut with a deep story of friendship and love overcoming even in the darkest and most hate-filled situations. Added note: This is a DARK fantasy. For readers who have light stomachs, be forewarned that there are few parts that I had to skim. They were a little too much for me so wanted to give a heads up for anyone who has a light stomach as well. I received an ARC from the publisher. All thoughts expressed are my own and was not required to write a positive review.

    Incredible

    THIS. BOOK. Seriously. Just stop reading this review and go read this book. It is absolutely everything I wanted it to be and way more. I am going to re-read as soon as possible because I just want to go back into this world. C.W. Briar has created a beautifully deep debut novel of friendship and love overcoming darkness. A very dark tale, but captivating and I just couldn’t put it down. The characters…the world building…everything about this book was incredible. 5 stars for sure and it is definitely going in my top reads of 2019. Now, go pick Whispers From The Depths up and get reading! *I recieved an ARC from the publisher as part of a blog tour. All opinions are my own.*

    Great debut

    The Whisperers are trapped by their own powers. Although they have the power to speak to and control water spirits, they cannot use the same powers they wield to set themselves free—whatever harm they cause to others will be inflicted on themselves. When the tribute is late from Kysavar Castle, the king sends a team to find out what happened, and Betka, a palace Whisperer, gets herself sent there so she can find out what has happened to her sister. What she finds instead is horror—betrayal, mutiny, and a powerful water spirit gone rogue. Opening with the dramatic fall of the Whisperer temple, the story jumps NINETY-TWO YEARS into the future, which was really annoying, because I wanted to know what happened to Eder. You do eventually find out what happened to him, but only in flashbacks, and some ingenious story weaving, but it was still… irritating. That aside, Briar treats us to a story of contrasts: Betka, the bold, angry Whisperer, ready to rebel against the teaching of the order, vs Asi, the calm, timid Whisperer, who holds that by doing everything with love and according to the teachings of the order, they will be able to regain their freedom. Kuros and Vydan, almost-kind soldiers who do not hate the Whisperers, treating them as humans within the bounds of their orders vs Rorlen and Denogrid, hardened soldiers who bully and torture the Whisperers because of the powers they wield. Whispers From the Depths holds no punches. It is dark and gritty, grim and full of death, and yet there is always this glimmer of hope, first held out by Asi—and then grasped by all the others—that love truly does conquer all. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
