A Wicked Whisper Came
A nameless evil presses upon Oceana's borders, its source unknown. Shadows spread from the south. Foul creatures have appeared in the wilds, some of which were thought to exist only in myth. As a decades-old peace crumbles, two men who knew one another a lifetime ago have a chance meeting that changes everything.
Valory, second son of the King, has spent his life traveling the Eastern World in his father's name. Arden, youngest of the House of Stewards, has lived his life under a name his father didn't give him. Joining forces to protect their homeland, they take to the high seas, discovering more than they bargained for along the way: about duty, honor, desire, and the mystery of the spreading shadow.
A/N: This is the first book in a high fantasy, epic fantasy series featuring both LGBT and straight romantic relationships. The developing relationship between two men is a large driving force in the series' plot, but the plot exists outside of their relationship. Some scenes have a mature rating for sex/violence, but the story was written without explicit content.
If you enjoy high seas adventures, mythical creatures, vivid world building, political machinations, and far-reaching adventures with a diverse cast featuring LGBT+, POC, and strong female characters, take a look inside.
