Title: The Whispering
Author: L. Filloon
Publisher: Kindle Edition
Series: The Velesi Trilogy #3
Pages: 330
Format: ebook
Source: Author Request

Description:

Tharin and Lily find themselves back in Pathen in search of Julia and the key to Eirrell, but old foes and new ones are in close pursuit. Adding to their plight, all doorways to Velesi have been closed.

Forced to discover a way back to their realm, the group finds help from new friends and those who once stood against them are now allies. To make matters worse, a betrayal causes the door to the UnderRealm to open, allowing demons and monsters once imprisoned to roam the realm freely.

Time is of the essence as there are only two Ancients left while Ka grows weaker, struggling to hold the realm together. It is up to Tharin and Lily to find the doorway to Eirrell, call the Unnamed Sidhe and save Velesi.

Journey back to Velesi and join Tharin, Lily, Tolan, Julia, Alorn, Mellis, Ziri and Cessa to save the realm and maybe have a wedding...or two, but then again, it is Velesi, so...maybe not.

My Thoughts:

Going back to this series for me I took too long I'm sure to get back to Velesi mainly because I know this is the last in this trilogy and I loved the characters so much that I wanted to stay with them longer.  When we left our friends, cause let's face it by this point they remind me of friends in a weird magical way Lily had left to find Julia after having her heart broken by Tharin finding him in a compromising position.  Tolan and Tharin went chasing after Lily to find out what happened and explain his situation to her.

Out in the world Lily is faced with some severe issues like the Ange after her.  Threating to hurt anyone she cares about it.  Lily gets to Julia just in time before "the bad guys" get her.  Not long after that the group is reunited and they set out to get back to Velesi with some minor complications to work through.

Julia has her issues with things she has been told about Tolan which takes some working out between the two of them.  Lily has more issues with Tharian's situation and has trouble with his reasoning.  Meanwhile something is trying to keep the gang out of Velesi which makes them more determined to get into Velesi to see how bad it is there.

There is also the big battle to save Velesi in the end, good versus evil and of course who will come on top I was pleased with and I loved how it wrapped things up I just wish there was more to read about with this trilogy so it's bittersweet and I will miss all the characters from these books.  Such a great story definitely worth reading again and again!
