There are plenty of books out there that do not need recommendations because they will sell anyway. But some books fly under the radar for whatever reason, and do require recommendations. Consider this my recommendation not only for the Canticle of Whispers, but for the Agora Trilogy as a whole.

This is a trilogy which began with an intriguing and original fantasy world set in the city of Agora, a city where anything can be traded, from goods and services to memories and emotions. The first book

This whole trilogy is extraordinarily rich and imaginative. The critique of a capitalism gone mad is chilling in that it looms as a possibility for our own world if we don't let other human sensitivities become stronger than they are right now.

In this final book of the Agora trilogy, Mark and Lily are put to the test to see if they can set things right and change their destinies.

Will they have to sacrifice their own lives to set things right or will they be able to change the world and live to see the changes?

A very good book! It was more predictable than the others, but still held lots of surprises. It had a pretty good ending, with most things resolved, but it still leaves me kind of wishing that it wasn't a trilogy. What else happens? Perhaps he'll continue the series as the author of Eragon did, or perhaps I'll have to come up with my own conclusions. This was a very captivating story. I recommend this trilogy to all--age 12 & up.

A bit disappointing, I found the previous book (2nd in the trilogy) much deeper and interesting. This one is a bit dull and expected.
