Seventeen years ago, a long and bloody rebellion wracked the six united regions of the Kingdom. Now the new King wields the vast and unvanquished army of Midlan with his right hand, and with his left has granted a small group of thugs — the nobles he calls his Sovereign Five — unbridled rule over the other regions. As if this weren’t bad enough, the King has also outlawed the practice of whispering — which is a problem for Kael.

It’s not like he asked to be born a whisperer: he didn’t ask for his strange healing powers anymore than he asked to be the village runt. And when he rescues a wounded girl from the perils of the Unforgivable Mountains, his luck only gets worse. She couldn’t have been just any girl: she had to be Kyleigh —the sword-wielding renegade knight with all of Midlan on her trail. Then one miserable, snowy evening, things go from bad to worse, and Kael is left with no choice but to follow Kyleigh down the mountains and into the tumultuous lowlands. She leads him on one mad quest after the next — eventually pulling off an act of such mischievous proportions that it threatens to change the Kingdom as they know it.

    3.5 bumped up to 4 for an excellent audiobook narration by Derek Perkins. I enjoyed this book and loved the two main characters (but some of the secondary characters are silly). Some scenes are grim, ...

    Actual Rating: 2.5 starsMeh. Harbinger was better than I expected, but I'm also not all that impressed. I'm also really sick of the words "rump" and "gut." Pluses:DragonPiratesTwo badass heroinesDecen...

    3 ½ stars. I enjoyed this. No major problems.It’s a fantasy/adventure story. Creatures include mages, shape shifters (dragons and wolves), and whisperers. Whisperers do things with their minds like...

  • Mark Halse

    A decent read. Perhaps if I were ten years younger I would think of it as a good or even a great read but Harbinger is definitely a screamingly YA fantasy. It was slightly better then I expected but I...

    This was an awesome epic adventure, and I loved it! People that like R.A. Salvatore or Christopher Paolini should give this a try. This type of writing is what is lacking in the YA genre. Please we ne...

  • Elizabeth Fantham

    No. Just absolutely NO. This book started okay, not great. Then it just got worse. I feel like every fantasy, mythical creature/human were forced into a book. We have dragons, whisperers, mages, witch...

  • Joecrash411

    Well, obviously, I thought it was terrific! My only disappointment is that the author hasn't written more in this series (there is a book 2, I'll get to that later) and I've been really pressed to fin...

  • Hollie

    A little too YA for me, but creative conceptI'd rate this a 2.5 star book. This was one of those reads that I almost discontinued on numerous occasions. I just felt myself growing bored throughout. I ...

  • Leonard

    I am very surprised at this books rating, being quite a tolerant reader I tend to blast through any book, even if they are less than average. But I did struggle to finnish reading this. All in all thi...

  • Frial

    I think I'll lend this book to my 10 y/o niece. She might like it (provided she doesn't look too closely at the numerous absurd situations occuring during the hero's journey)....
