Into Whispering Shadows
Whispers of truth often linger in darkness.
After fleeing the Helosian Empire, Astrea and her friends follow the trail of clues north in search of the mystery-cloaked void mages known as the Paragon. Crossing the border into Novaria, the group finds the capital city on high alert after a string of murders.
Just like in Kalama, the victims bear the mark of void magic—a clear display of brazenness as the shadows’ influence continues to grow across the continent.
Determined to stop the killers and uncover the secrets of the Paragon, the group teams up with Novaria’s ruler, the Grand Duchess Ysabel. But with conspiracies and deceit at every turn, Astrea begins to question everything she thought she knew—not just about the world, but about herself and her magic.
Only one thing is clear: Astrea is being hunted. And this time, no one can save her.
