Blurb from publisher:

Raised by an old fortune-teller within the dark veil of the Bavarian Black Forest, Rune has learned two valuable lessons: only take from the forest that which you can use, and never, never look anyone in the eye in the village. For something terrible happened in the forest long ago… and now, the whispers of a long-dead mother with a vengeful secret have come haunting.

Forced to flee all she has ever known, Rune soon learns of a legacy she is bound to–one that is drenched in fear, witchcraft and murder–a birthright that stretches beyond the grave to the trees where Rune is no longer safe.

Early Praise for FOREST OF WHISPERS:

“NOT your average teenage witch! Jennifer Murgia’s FOREST OF WHISPERS is a dark, brooding mystery/thriller that captures the paranoid, plague-driven frenzy of 17th Century Europe with the speed and power of a galloping stallion. Rune, a 16-year old with formidable abilities that she herself can barely understand, must fight her own inner demons as well as what seems to be a whole world gone awry with bloodlust for her kind. This is a thrilling read.”

~ Molly Cochran, author of LEGACY & POISON

“An interesting and compelling love story, with plenty of mystery and intrigue — I devoured FOREST OF WHISPERS and will be first in line to read anything else from Jennifer Murgia!”


Why am I looking forward to it?

A historical fiction novel with witches? I’m intrigued by the legacy and what secrets the forest holds!

Witches and I don’t often get along, but I’m excited to see what you think of this, Liza! You know I trust your judgement in all things.

Well, in all things except when Siri is involved.

She is legit out to get you. BEWARE SIRI, LIZA!

That cover is amazing, tho. I love it.
