Reviews of The Whisperer’s Warning

“It’s been a year since I read the debut novel…The Protectors’ Pledge, and I must say the sequel picks up so seamlessly! I missed the crew of characters, especially Granny B and her quips (which are the most realistic Caribbean granny phrases ever) and I loved the plot development…. Super, super enjoyable. The perfect gifts for the children in your life…or even for yourself if you want to delve into some folklore fiction.” – Rayne AffonsoRayningbooks

“When I read The Protector’s Pledge I fell in love with the village of Alcavere and the mysterious forest of Oscuros. Danielle McClean’s descriptive and culture-celebrating writing brought the characters of JV, Granny B, and Papa Bois alive. The Whisperer’s Warning picks up right where The Protector’s Pledge ends. The reader is quickly enveloped in the ominous douens, eerie jumbies and soucouyants, and JV’s pursuit of his past and engagement with his new mission. The mystery that JV and his friends, Carol and Riaz, set out to solve keeps the reader absorbed through to its surprising end. Ms. McClean has written another brilliant novel that will receive much praise and accolades. I cannot wait to add The Whisperer’s Warning to both my personal collection and my school’s library.” –Kendall Doogan, Assistant Principal, Librarian and Technology Teacher.

“The Whisperer’s Warning is riveting and keeps you turning the page to find out more, as you see JV’s story of his lineage start to unfold. We are all rooting for JV as he attempts to conquer the evil of the forest with his sidekicks Carol and Riaz and an unlikely ally Marie. This book seamlessly continues from the end of the Protector’s Pledge. I love the introduction of the new folklore characters like the Soucouyant and Jumbies and the development of the Douens into more than just mischief makers. I love that JV cares for all creatures, and does not see evil first, and I like that both books focus on the richness of Caribbean folklore. I enjoyed Danielle’s trademark glossary of Caribbean words and look forward to the rest of the series.” – Marsha Gomes-Mckie, Founder, Caribbean Books Foundation
