‘City of Whispers’ is a complex and sometimes confusing dark-fantasy adventure, following Airene and her Finches as they try to uncover the truth. I deeply enjoyed this book, and more and more the further through the novel I got.
First, the good – the setting of ‘City of Whispers’ is gorgeously developed. With clear inspirations from Ancient Greece (the characters wear chitons, have names like Airene and Lykos, and even the democracy and social structure borrows from Ancient Athens), the city of Oedija feels like a real place, with interclass tensions and a rich history illustrated in snippets from fictional recordings at the beginning of each chapter.
City of Whispers is also on Goodreads.
