All Nemsa has ever known is a world without wind.
Strangely, the winds stayed away around the day of her birth, twenty five years ago, setting off a chain of disastrous events including a fatal sickness. And for that the girl is both tormented and shunned. Unaware of her involvement in this, she leads a small, miserable life in a mountain village, close to where she was found as a baby.
She wants nothing more than to find out to why there is no wind. And why the Gods have seemingly forgotten about them.
That tiny spark starts a fury of change when one day Nemsa meets alluring Xenthia--a mystifying Sky Whisperer--and it becomes clear that Nemsa's path lies far above all she is familiar with. Beyond her village and the Lower Sky, past the red, dusty mountains even, and up to the unknown lands of the Upper Sky Dome to the realm of the Sky Whisperers. But, even with her true heritage revealed, how can crippled and one-eyed Nemsa's destiny be linked with that of the much older, immortal Sky Whisperer she grows fonder of by the day? What is expected of her? More so--how can frail Nemsa ever hope to stand up against the supremacy of a vengeful, ambitious Sun Whisperer? Will the courage in her heart be enough?
Magic is at work, a fatal sickness is spreading among mortals and immortals alike, the sun is brutally beating down, and the fate of all hangs in the balance. And if Nemsa is to fulfil her destiny and save the world, she must find her way through it all...

When Nemsa was born, unbeknownst to her, a set of disastrous events happened including a fatal sickness in her land which caused the girl to be bullied and shunned. She is blind in one eye and lame in one leg. One day, Nemsa meets a Sky Whisperer named Xenthia. This beautiful stranger invites her to leave the only home she has ever known to go with her. As they journey onward, Nemsa learns that she is the only one who can change what has happened to her planet as well as in the new world she is headed towards. Time is of the essence as she learns of the special powers she has, who her real parents are, and what love feels like. There are a lot of emotions displayed throughout this story. Love, jealousy, greed, power, confusion, and anger. They are played out magnificently. The story is compelling, original, and impossible to put down. The experiences described are believable and so are the characters. It is one of those books where you are rooting for good to overcome evil. The cover is beautiful, and the summary explains the story so that you already have an understanding of what you are about to read. The dedication conveys a touching message about how we can be instrumental in changing the world, by becoming the change that we want to see.
