Whispers in the Dark is a deeply emotional, highly satisfying edge of your seat read! I could not get enough of this take charge story. From the very first page I was mesmerized by Nathan’s stark situation and his fascinating connection with Shea. Before reading Whispers in the Dark I would never have believed that the hero and heroine of a story could form such a deep and magical connection via the mind before actually meeting and that I would like it much less love it. The conversations between Nathan and Shea are much more intimate than anything I’ve read. Ms. Banks characters cut through all the bull and get right to the nitty gritty which turns Whispers in the Dark into a compelling and cutting-edge romance.
Whispers in the Dark takes the KGI series into a bit of a different direction with its addition of telepathic characters. I’m a huge fan of everything paranormal and science fiction so this doesn’t bother me but everyone may not enjoy it. I must say that Shea’s ability makes this story amazing. The paths that it takes the Kelly brothers and their KGI associates down are enthralling. Who doesn’t love a conspiracy theory? I love that the mystery surrounding Shea and her sister Grace’s abilities will continue at least into the next book if not further.
Maya Banks can do no wrong with her Kelly brothers, Whispers in the Dark is perfect!
