Voices of the Stars Rowena Whaling’s New Novel


Five years in the making, Vo i c e s o f t h e S t a r s h a s been called the best ever Arthurian novel by critics and fans alike. King Arthur and his star-crossed lover are woven into a rich Dark Age tapestry of ancient rites, goddesses, seers, enchantresses, Druids, and dragons. The epic story is filled with historical and legendary characters spanning five generations and focuses on the five distinct cultures living in the land of post-Roman Britons. Whaling’s historical accuracy is second to none, and, as characters tell their own stories, readers come to know them intimately.

“Rowena W haling has the most complete and accurate grasp of history, myth, and magic that I have seen in any Arthurian novel,” said Oberon Zell, Headmaster of the Grey School of Wizardry. “The reaction has been far beyond my expectations. I have been a songwriter and poet all my life, and I have learned that when something creative hits you, it just happens, and you have to let it happen,” Whaling reveals.
