Bazrad ka-Duri is happy with her life. Sure she’s been exiled to the surface and no one else seems to notice that the trees can talk, but things could definitely be worse.
Her plans to spend her remaining exile drinking herself into a stupor are disrupted by a pair of elves who drop in to say hello. Apparently the fact she can hear what the trees are saying is a “gift”—The Whisper of the Leaves—and they need her to use it to save their home. What follows is an adventure Bazrad could never have anticipated and never really wanted. She will find herself caring about things she doesn’t want to care about, and questioning every choice she’s ever made.
When things don’t go according to plan, will Bazrad do the right thing, or will she run?
