A Song of Hope

Book three

The Misfits have successfully escaped the resurrection of a god, but war isn’t done with them yet.

Fate leads them south to the war-torn city of Alavae, where the imposing threat of Shoma seeks to claim Hestian land and spread their wicked sultan’s influence. Their mission is to free the illusionist Massoud from his imprisonment with the Shoman army. His liberation is of the uttermost importance, for only his magic can aid the Misfits in their attempts to free Rooster’s beloved and his crew from the eldrasi prison on the island of Míradan.

The cults of Vilanthris are unwavering in their quest to resurrect the dragon gods, and with the return of Rhavna, the Misfits' mission seems all but lost. Yet, despite such daunting odds, the Misfits continue to carve a path of hope.

The Whispered Tales is a D&D-inspired fantasy about a group of morally grey heroes called the Misfits. It’s perfect for fans of Skyrim, Baldur’s Gate 3, Dungeons & Dragons, Lord of the Rings, and Six of Crows.
