Due to a forbidden romance between Whisper a vaettir, and Hermes an Ethereal, Whisper pays the ultimate price; her life. In the world, that author, Justina Ireland creates, partly human creatures known as vaettir must not fraternize with Ethereals, full gods. Due to anger, Zephyr ends up killing Whisper’s executioner, a feat that no creature could ever achieve. Nonetheless, to make the kill, Zephyr had to use her dark and forbidden powers.
