A Wicked Whisper Came
A chance meeting. A mysterious foe. A deadly, high-seas quest.
When a duty-driven Prince commissions a mercenary ship to fight an ancient evil, sailor Arden must choose what he's willing to sacrifice in order to join the cause and serve his kingdom: his freedom, his home, or even a growing connection with a forbidden lover.
Black Sails meets Lord of the Rings in this dark fantasy series that explores themes of identity, sacrifice, love, and the many shades of grey that grow between right and wrong when the world begins to crumble.
Read on if you like magic that comes at a price, epic battles, fantastical creatures, and political intrigue - all layered with full-cast ensemble friendships and a dash of slow-burn romance.

This is the first book in a 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.
