“We were the first, and we will be the last.”
The Whisperers of the Gods have seen the vision – the gods destroying the world in a flood because the old ways have been corrupted and forgotten. Three are chosen, Tersh, Kareth, and Sha’di, to go out and warn the world: the gods must be appeased.
In Orope – the White Snake Tersh must leave her children and travel to Matawe, the kingdom in the mountains. She must also care for Kareth and keep him out of trouble. Kareth, told since birth that he is destined for greatness, has been expecting this moment. Certain that he is ready, he quickly discovers that his confidence and curiosity have a tendency to lead him into dangerous situations. Sha’di finds himself travelling alone to find the people of the jungle, the Petzuhallpa. The jungle seems like a paradise, until he discovers the darker rituals practiced within.
Samaki is a merchant who returns to Mahat to find his home destroyed, his father dead, and no one to buy his expensive cargo. With his first mate Tiyharqu, the merchant struggles to move forward after his entire world has been upended. The stories of these four travellers intersect and entwine with each other as they move towards their destinations. Guided by visions the Whisperers must use their wits to survive in these strange new lands that would rather use them as political pawns than listen to their warnings.
