Before I started reading The Whispers, I didn’t realize the novella was part of a serial. Honestly, I tend to avoid serials like the plague. But I’m glad I gave The Whispers a chance because I liked the story a lot.

I really felt for Eloise when she woke up from the coma and found out her husband and eldest daughter had died in a car crash. Although the book is short, I was glad the author didn’t rush through her grief. She handled the loss in a believable way.

I thought the book was well written and I was thoroughly creeped out when Eloise started to experience visions and messages from the dead. The author has a talent for writing atmospheric with works featuring characters that draw you into their stories.

Although I don’t usually keep up with novellas and serials, I’m intrigued enough to pick up the next book.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
