Review by: Ey Wade on Sep. 13, 2014 :
The Whale Whisperers of Ensorclea is a book of so many different genre's you are entertained from the first page. There's murder, intrigue, treason, fantasy,science, romance and best of all communication with animals. Ed did such a good job introducing and exposing the layers of each of the characters, I had to research to see if there really were indigenous people who believed they could talk to their ancestors, the fish. The story sneaks on you with quiet, fanciful beauty. Well written, gorgeous descriptions and before you know it you are ensnared into another world.

I became really embroiled in the chaos of the king's life, trying to figure out who killed his wife, excited with Lore trying to help her father move on and find a new love and totally entranced with the idea of listening to your surroundings and learning from everything. As the story clearly drew to an end, I reluctantly continued reading, totally wishing there would be more. If there is one thing I will remember from The Whale Whisperer of Ensorclea is the fact 'information is never lost'. A small thought with a huge wow and insightful concept.This is a tale deserving of a second part.

This book is awesome.
This book is amazing in many ways. It takes you to a world where two sorts of people reside. The firsts are the local of the planet, they hold the keys to mysterious secrets. On their side are the whale whisperers. The seconds are the alien, who came from a world they already destroyed with technology and are about to do the same here. On their side is the King of the empire.
This book is filled with wisdom on both sides of the story.
It's not only a political story, it's also a sort of detective story about a murder case. There are so many things happening that you can never get bored with it and you have to keep on turning the pages.
The characters are delightful and the scenery is vibrant.

Seriously, go grab it.

This was a fun read with interesting characters that also had important things to say about morality, respect, and environmental awareness. From the benevolent King trying to drag his government into a less warlike and more cooperative era, to the Whale Whisperers themselves who are one with their ancestors and in tune with their environment, to the friendship between the princess and her servant, there is a lot to like about this book.

I enjoyed the Whale Whisperers a great deal.

Way to go Ed! Keep writing!

Every now and then you stumble upon a book that appeals to both heart and mind. The Whale Whisperers is such a book. It has beauty, action, love, family, friendship, treason and thought provoking issues all in the same story.

If you´re not a fan of Science Fiction, read it for its lovestory
If you not a fan of Love Stories, read it for its action
If you´re not a fan of Action, read it for its Cultural education

In fact, just read it. There something in here for every taste (well, except for bad taste, I suppose)

It is screaming for a sequel!

I don’t like to give spoilers and I write a review only if I really liked the book; therefore I will tell you how reading this book made me feel. First of all, I really enjoyed Ed’s writing style and his gentle way of voicing his thoughts about society and politics woven into a story, without trying to influence me. In this book even murder and the plotting of the next one doesn’t shock you that much, because he rolls you into it gentler than some authors who think that by scaring you half to death will make you like the story more, although there are some much unexpected turns and well written darkness of human nature in this story. A few events in the book are developing a little slower than some readers might like, however this is not an action novel and I enjoyed reading these parts pretty much, because of his way of explaining and expressing things. The beautiful sentences made even the few slower parts really enjoyable such as : “The path’s gentle descent was occasionally broken up with short steep parts, the two men slid down on their feet like expert skiers on the bunny slope.” and many more. I liked the way he explains the concept of the thought, “Information is never lost, it always exists.” I’m a firm believer of this fact, the information exists, but it might have changed so we can’t recognize it, this is how he explains it: “When you drop an ice cube into hot water and watch closely, the thing you notice is the ice cube disappearing. You can’t really appreciate that it is really only changing. Changing back to water. Turn up the heat under that hot water and it boils away. Again, it hasn’t gone away so much as changed.” The idea of group consciousness exists in many cultures including in Hun history (my ancestry) and probably every culture has legends about how to get the long lost information back. This story gave me a new and almost believable idea about how it could be possible. The description of many different realities flowing simultaneously, tapping into ancient “singing” with an instrument were all new, original and fascinating. I loved the characters in the book, even the well written evil ones. I wanted to see my two favorite’s names written out Lorenna and Jennoquina more instead of using short Jen and Lore, I just liked their full name better. Usually I speed read the books that seems like just came off the chain production made by the same formula - if I find something interesting in the story line - good fights bad, fast actions and vivid love scenes with some profanity to please every reader with something. This book was different; I took my time to enjoy it.

Review by: Parents' Little Black Book Reviews on April 04, 2012 :
“The Whale Whispers of Ensordia” is a fantasy novel with a location much like planet earth.

The indigenous people have seen their world invaded by aliens. These aliens have carved out a lifestyle that does not respect the planet or its people. Now the new residents of the planet are seeing their civilization fail. They must reassess how they live their lives in order to obtain prosperity.

Even with the problems they are facing the King must first find answers to the question of who is targeting the royal family. The Queen has died and the Kings daughter could be next. He must discover who is leading this dark and nefarious plot against the government.

But before they can make the changes necessary to continue living on the planet the King, his daughter and their most trusted advisors must travel to beyond his realm to a place of ancient knowledge. They must open their minds and hearts to the opportunity presented to them to speak directly with the most ancient of beings on the planet.

This is an Eco novel which is so popular now. But none the less it is a fun and interesting story with unique characters and unusual solutions to problems. A bit predictable in places and it does bog down moving very slowly at times. But overall it is an interesting read with unique and colorful characters.
