Description
Grade Level: 4-6 Age Level: 9-11 Listening Level: 4-6 Whisper Silksinger is no warrior she's a weaver of flying carpets. The last surviving member of her clan, relentlessly pursued by devils, she flees with nothing but a copper teakettle and the ember that smolders inside it. That ember her secret and her burden is none other than the Azazel, one of the seven Djinn who made the world, and it is her sacred duty to keep him safe. But others seek the Azazel as well. Whisper finds herself drawn to Hirik, a mysterious mercenary with an ancient sword and a dangerous secret of his own. And in their wake follows Magpie Windwitch, the Djinn King's champion, intent on finding Whisper before the devils do. It's a desperate quest if the Azazel should die, the Tapestry of Creation will fail, and all life with it. Discover Dreamdark; an exotic world of secrets and spice, fortune-tellers, hobgoblins, mercenaries, and devils. A new age of magic is dawning, but great battles have yet to be fought as new foes rise and the devil armies of the Dawn Days are unleashed once more.
