In seasons long past, twin gold-eyed princes sundered a kingdom. Rejecting his twin-brother's warrior ways, Kasheron established a community deep in the southern forests.
Forgotten by the outside world and protected by the forests of Allogrenia, Kasheron's Tremen community has flourished, with his legacy of peace and healing still upheld generations on. But now the forest has been breached by hostile intruders ...
Death and bloodshed follow, testing even the skills of Kira, the greatest of all Tremen Healers. As well as sharing Kasheron's gift for healing, Kira is seen as a leader by her people.
As the attacks upon the Tremen become more violent, Kira is faced with a terrible dilemma. Should she stay and risk the annihilation of her community, or set out on a perilous journey north to seek aid from their long-lost warrior kin?
With its beautifully drawn world, fast-paced plot and wonderful characters, The Whisper of Leaves heralds the arrival of an exciting new talent on the Australian fantasy landscape.
