Ancient Whispers

Ancient Whispers is a unique and intriguing story. Marie-Cluade Bourque develops a world of mages and sorceresses unlike any other. Here, they can invoke the elements, change shape, and even perform alchemy.

Gabriel was a strong and flawed character. Yes, flawed sounds like a bad thing; however, in this case, it allowed the characters to seem more real and open.

Gabirel has searched 250 years for his soul mate. Now he has finally found his Evangeline reborn into Lily Bellefontaine. She is a nurse with the ability to calm, but Lily has always suppressed her powers. Now that she has met Gabirel and his "family" she is ready to learn more about everything she missed out on.

I really enjoyed the characters. Lily and Gabriel were a good match, even if they fell for each other a tad quickly.  The plot had a few holes and dragged at times, but the concept of the story was very interesting. I look forward to reading more from this talented debut author.
