Overview

The legend, they say, is whispered within the winds along the magnificent Preda Mountain Range, the words and deeds never to be forgotten of the Time of the Nuxvenom, a time when the Sordarins crushed the impending threat, the dreaded Asmeodai, and once more Scarladin was safe. The mighty Sordarins, rulers of the sky! No, the Sordarins have slept well over the years secure in their knowledge the Great One watches over them, knowing the legends holds a mighty warrior will emerge if threatened again, born with a destiny only to defend their world. But subtle changes have emerged. Little by little fear beings to resurface that their world, their very existence is once again threaten. They look to the skies anxiously awaiting their warrior; questioning perchance if the Great One has forgotten them. I know this how? For I am the one born to defend their world. I, Kela Calledwdele, was born a Euchoun. I am their warrior.
So starts this epic fantasy...Whispers of a Legend saga. Kela Calledwdele was born with a destiny, a Euchoun with only one purpose in life...to protect. Torn between two worlds, Kela soon discovers she is the hope of both. Now she must find the courage to face the destiny fate has dictated to her.
Kela has always known what path in life she would follow. She was born a Euchoun. Half Witheleghean, a passive peaceful race where magic runs freely and the other half, Sordarin, a valiant warrior race of hawkmen who rule the sky, she knows well her parents gave the ultimate sacrifice to give her a chance to live. Yet, in so doing, they have left Kela unprepared to face the dangers that await her. Her instincts are to protect and in this she does, but in so doing it leads her into a world where she knows not whom to trust. In time her power matures and grows stronger when she bonds with a Sordarin warrior, Cono. She learns well why she holds the power. An evil as no other before, Asmeodai, has emerged but all is not what it seems as a dark cloak encompasses her family. Betrayal, distrust, treachery leaves Kela alone. She is torn by her desire for Cono and the purpose, the path, she has been given to follow. And when another emerges within her world, one who seemly wants only to help her along her path, she is pulled further away from her Sordarin.
Shadows of the Past, Book One of the Whispers of a Legend is the first in nine installments of the saga. It is a journey of a young woman’s battle to embrace her destiny. Whispers of a Legend follows Kela along this conflicting path, where as a young woman unsure of her ability and her confidence in facing the challenges before her to where she emerges as a strong leader who learns to lean upon her own strength, to stand not behind, but side by side with her warrior.

    Great review to a series!

    What an emotionally gripping story. I love the protagonist strength. She endures much for the safety of her family and her sense of duty. She is denied her birthright but keeps her brother and sister's needs above her own. Her grandfather seems to have a plan to keep her hidden from the world to harness her power but only alienates her more. I'm thoroughly impressed with this series already. I hope the 3rd installment comes soon!

    Lot's of potential but meeds more pages :)

    I think the story although filled with emotion is rather short. I guess when all the parts are writen it will equal a full book. So far i like it; but i find it annoying that the story is only 73 pages long andi would like more...

    Good plot but needs editing

    With lines like "Turstan erudited his family", page 42 it appears that this book was written in another language and then put through an on line translator with mixed results. The improper word usuage is very distracting to a good plot

    Awesome Book!

    This book had me from the beginning. I loved the opening chapter. Lends me to anticipate more to with the series. Action, magic and romance. Love it all. Carrie J Haynes sweeps us into their tormented world, getting us to love them and want to protect them. I can't wait for the rest of the series!!!

    Great Book!! Looking forward to the next installment!!!

    I really liked the story line in this book. It kept up a good pace and left me wanting more. My only complaint would be the grammatical errors in the books. There were several times when I had to read a line multiple times to interpret it correctly. One thing that struck me all the way through both books was that I could visualize it playing on the big screen. I hope that someone picks up on that and makes a movie out of it or even a TV series. It definitely has the potential to be a good movie!!! There were a couple of romantic scenes in the book that were pretty detailed but as yet it was only the two parts. If that is something that bothers you just be warned. Otherwise, I definitely recommend giving it a read.

    Intriguing story from new author

    Carrie James Haynes has potential to be next well known scifi/fantasy author. Her story contains interesting characters with unusual talents. It is well thought out and although not perfect demonstrates the possibility of some good stories coming in the future. I was interested enough to purchase the next installment of the story.

    Read the whole series! I'm hooked and can't wait for the next one! Noticed on the author's blog that the series is a semi-finalist in a Sci-Fi/Fantasy book contest and can well understand why. I absolutely love the characters. It's so nice to have a strong female lead. The worlds Ms Haynes has created captivated me and the storyline is gripping. Highly recommend the series!

    Can you say "grammar?"

    I guess the plot was okay, but I became so irritated at the grammar (or lack thereof,) that I gave up less than halfway through it.

    This book reads like a translation from another language to English, with no attention to little things like the tenses of verbs.

    I have no idea whether that was intentional but if it was,it was irritating and if it wasn't, the publisher is in serious need of a copy editor and/or proof reader.

    Good Story-Line

    The story was entertaining and it was easy enough to follow what was gong on, but the book is in desperate need of editing. Grammatical errors were everywhere and the author used "in all" in every paragraph (sometimes twice) which was distracting. This could be edited & fleshed out into a terrific book.

    The story in and of itself is very good, but the book needs some

    The story in and of itself is very good, but the book needs some major editing and polishing. Grammar errors, improper use of words etc. Some of the phrases used by the author are very repetitive, but I do look forward to reading the other stories in the series. The characters and plot are fantastic! The book has a lot of potential!

    This book gripped me with the heirons plite and unfair treatment

    This book gripped me with the heirons plite and unfair treatment from the beginning. I am waiting to the next to find out why she has been treated so poorly by her Grandfather the King!! Very intreging and an emotional rollercoaster.
