Aftan Whispers ~Book Review~

Aftan Whispers

By: Phil Williams

Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Disgusting (20+ curse words [Esp. F-Bombs]. Other questionable topics: slavery, semi-descriptive murder, drinking, kissing, and death.)

3 stars

The beginning of this book was great. It was interesting, fast-paced, and sort of reminded me of Aladdin for some reason. The characters had pretty good depth. It took a while to fully understand what was happening, and a few things weren’t resolved until the very end (which was fine, but I really wanted to know what was going on!).

This is definitely for action-lovers. There was hardly anything but! At first, I was 100% okay with that. But, when the characters are constantly in the middle of a scuffle for an entire book, it’s stressful and a little monotonous. I felt very tense while reading it. A sprinkle of comic relief would’ve helped.

This book is technically the second in the Estalia series, but it is easily a stand-alone. If there is going to be another book after this one, it has a decent ending, but otherwise it was lacking to me.

The best way I can describe Aftan Whispers is: the story of an optimist and a rebel trying to save a world that is plagued with wrong choices and misunderstandings.
