For as long as she can remember Gimlea's mother has trained her to become a whisper woman--to do what she never could. When her mother takes her to see the goddess's procession Gimlea makes a vow to see that path through. But not for her mother's reasons of vicarious power and accomplishment. Gimlea will become one of the goddess's chosen so that she no longer has to be under anyone's thumb.

And she will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

I went into this not expecting much considering i found this by chance browsing 8 pages into latest, but  boy was i pleasantly surprised. I didn't spot any glaring issues with grammar, so no issues there. The style with which the story is told seems strange at first considering we go in knowing nothing and it seems to to be written kind of cryptically and mysteriously, but it's easy to get used to. We learn about the world and how it works rather organically, in how it relates to what the protagonist is doing or what she is worrying about. The atmosphere is really grey, and the story is really riddled with tension, especially when concerning the unsettling and very death-focused religious practices. The protagonist is a young girl who is somehow both mature and immature, and frequently ends up on the side of the fence where the grass isn't exactly green. The other characters feel real in respect to the fact that everyone is just doing their best to survive while staying on the good side of their obscure yet very real dark godess. All in all, a good read that i will come back to months later after more chapters are out and will probably have to reread it, because i have the memory of a goldfish. Keep up the good work, author-san!

Lurker coming out to support a new story. Whisper Woman is engaging in its mysterious world building that feels distinctly different from pretty much anything else I have read on this site. The charcters are interesting and understandable with alot of room for development. Overall a good start with the potential to become a great story.
