Whisper (Book II)
The rumors about Red and her successful trek through the Forbidden Forest have spread far and wide. So far that King Gavin has taken notice and deemed Red a worthy suitor for his son, Prince Owen. When she is invited to the castle and given no choice but to accept she finds herself on yet another journey, this time away from the Forest that she is so drawn to.
Ulric is powerful and dispensable, which makes him an ideal spy for the Shifters' army. Due to his advanced shifting abilities he finds himself penetrating deep into the castle walls and masquerading as an ambassador from a nearby kingdom. When Red shows up he finds himself at a loss for how to handle the impossible twist of events and all of the feelings of loss and love once again plaguing him potently.
The strange, silent, moody ambassador for Solciudad catches Red's eye. He certainly doesn't look like a royal ambassador, nor does he sound like one. And every time she sees him the gaping hole she's had in her chest since her return from the Forest seems to get a little bit lighter. Somehow she knows that this strange, brooding man has something to do with all of the memories that she can't quite grasp.
An uncovered plot, a charming prince, a forced marriage, a sickly young girl, and an entire week of forgotten adventures stand between Red and her answers, but she is bound and determined to figure out what it is she left behind in the Forest all of those months ago. Aided by Appa, her steadily worsening nightmares, and the strange figures that frequent her in the dead of night she finds herself closer than she has ever been to the answers she's been seeking for over a year.
