Ten years have passed since darkness cloaked the Whispering Woods.  Madness awaits all who enter.  
Tamberlain.  A small trading town on the border of the woods scrapes by with what they can from farming the eastern fields and fishing Lac Dualdon.  A place four companions-once bound by adventure, magic and gold-called home.
Otis Stonesinger is a dwarf healer and military strategist.  Haygen takes pride in his mother's human side, but has learned to embrace his barbaric orc heritage.  The faeling, Wesley Whiteknuckle, was born into the world of assassination and thievery.  Finally, Kayla, a mystical elf trained in the magic arts.
Spread far across the lands for a much-needed rest, a tragedy brings the four friends back to Tamberlain only to be thrust into a war they never saw coming.  What brings this new evil to the land? The Whispering Woods hold the answers.

I liked it. You developed Kayla, Haygen and Wess quite well, and left us with a cliffhanger.

An excellent beginning and really well written!
                              It's nice that Otis and his mate have got regional accents.
                              You have captured/created the scenes beautifully.
                              Well done!
