Whispers in the Dark by Maya Banks
Review by Cassandra, Librarian at Mary Jacobs Library
It is that time of the year when the nights are dark and cold so why not spice up your winter reading selections! I started reading Maya Banks’ KGI Series several months ago and the latest installment, which came out in early January, is a winning choice for steamy, romantic suspense.
Whispers in the Dark is book 5 in the KGI Series and focuses on the story of Nathan and Shea.
Unlike the other books in the series, Banks throws in a twist in that Shea has special telepathic powers. Overall, her special abilities have made her life hell, but she can’t ignore the telepathic communications from a soldier being tortured who is on the brink of giving up, Nathan Kelly. For Nathan these skills save his life and enable him to survive. They also create an incredible bond between these two people.
But when Nathan is rescued, Shea cuts off their connection because she is in her own fight for her life as she is being hunted for her abilities and is on the run. Only when things get desperate and a weak moment on Shea’s part causes their connection to flare back to life. That’s when the entire KGI team swings into action to save Shea and in turn, save Nathan.
I loved that we got to see an even deeper level of the dynamic between the Kelly brothers. They have a huge part in this story as they are all working together to save Shea. However, just a bit of a fair warning that this is one of those books that you either really love or really hate and be prepared to suspend disbelief!
