A Whisper in The Shadows: Rangers of Laerean book one by Tom Fallwell is a spellbinding work with a powerful setting. The reader is introduced to the imaginary, captivating world of Hir with its peculiar seasons and legendary characters. Readers are introduced to tales of love and bravery, all constructed around the Rangers of Laerean, men who defend the prized land of Hir.

Baric of Elsu, who takes after the Bear Spirit, Odris, is one of the protectors of Hir. When he offers to help a woman from Vaar'da, Whisper, he thinks it could be a small favor to the beautiful woman who suffers from terrible nightmares. Little does he know that the encounter with this woman will lead them into a great adventure, involving the most powerful artifact of their time, and the source of the chaos that Hir has witnessed over two thousand years. Now with a group of powerful rangers, they will make the journey to the most dreaded of places, Mount Scorch where the volcano seethes. It is in this place that Baric must fulfill his destiny, revealed to him by Odris, the Bear Spirit. Does he have what it takes for this mission?

Tom Fallwell has created an epic fantasy, a story that will take readers to places they have only watched and read about in works like The Hobbit. The story is punctuated with numerous compelling scenes, the plot is spun to feature intense moments of conflict, and there are tons of surprises for the reader. The characters are awesome, and readers will remember Baric of Elsu like Thorin Oakenshield. The writing reads like magic, with beautiful, poetic names, and great descriptions. A Whisper in The Shadows is a highly imaginative and entertaining work that will enthrall fans of fantasy.
