Whirl_AudiobookCover_300Narrated by: Jaime Lamchick

AN IMPOSSIBLE WAR. AN EXPLOSIVE MAGIC. AN INESCAPABLE DESTINY.
– The World of Water Elementals –

Outspoken and independent, Kendra Irisavie has always played by her own rules.

She’s an ondine, a water elemental gifted with the powerful magic of Empath Virtue and trained to be a fighter. Pursued by Aquidae demons, she and her mother remain Rogue, hiding among humans to avoid becoming casualties in an ancient war.

Everything changes when violence erupts on Kendra’s seventeenth birthday. A dark stranger appears, promising answers to her mysterious past and stirring unexpected feelings in her fiercely guarded heart.

But as Kendra uncovers the truth about her heritage and future, she realizes just how deep the lies and deception run.

Now, in the face of unthinkable odds, she will need all her wits, skills, and magic to fulfill an extraordinary prophecy.

The first in a sweeping urban fantasy series, WHIRL is the beginning of a young woman’s exhilarating journey for survival, love, and hope as she fights for her place in a world where she doesn’t belong.

Whirl
(Italian edition)

Translator: Elisa Pardini

Whirl (Italian Edition)Magia. Segreti. Destino.

Kendra Irisavie ha sempre fatto di testa sua.

È un’ondina, una creatura elementale dell’acqua con il dono della potente magia dell’Empatia, addestrata a essere una guerriera. Coinvolte in un’antica guerra contro i demoni Aquidi, lei e sua madre sono Solitarie e si nascondono tra gli umani per non diventare le ennesime vittime.

Tutto cambia quando, al diciassettesimo compleanno di Kendra, si scatena la violenza. Un oscuro sconosciuto compare, promettendo di darle risposte sul suo misterioso passato e risvegliando sentimenti inaspettati nel suo cuore apparentemente inespugnabile.

Ma quando Kendra scopre la verità sulla sua famiglia e sul suo futuro, si rende conto di quanto profonde siano le bugie e gli inganni attorno a lei.

Adesso, nonostante le mille difficoltà, avrà bisogno di tutta la sua intelligenza, delle sue capacità e della sua magia per compiere una straordinaria profezia.

Primo volume di una travolgente saga fantasy contemporanea, Whirl è l’inizio dell’emozionante viaggio di una giovane donna alla ricerca dell’amore e della speranza mentre combatte per il suo posto in un mondo cui non appartiene.

Una guerra impossibile. Una magia esplosiva. Un destino inesorabile.
