Review: The Whisperer – moved

The Whisperer
The Whisperer by Fiona McIntosh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What if you could hear everyone else’s thoughts? All the time? And what if one of the voices you could hear was that of the Crown Prince? And What if that Crown Prince was under threat from his ambitious and ruthless uncle?
Well then. You’d have the beginnings of the story told in The Whisperer!
Griff is the boy who can hear thoughts. He works in a circus, using the distance of working in the scaffolding of the tent to find relief from the relentless onslaught of mind-chatter from his circus colleagues.
Lute is the Crown Prince. His is the strongest voice that Griff can hear, although the boys are many miles apart.

Their story forms the backbone of this original fantasy novel for younger readers. Recommended.
