Review: Whispers in the Dark by Maya Banks
This one has some paranormal elements to it. It could be argued that it’s more like ESP than paranormal, since paranormal is vampires and werewolves and there are no vampires or werewolves in this series, but the addition of Shea to the characters (and her sister, Grace, although we haven’t really meet her yet).
I expected Shea to have some sort of ESP given the gift comments on the back cover. The telepathy I can handle just fine but the healing seems a little much for a non-paranormal book. Some suspension of disbelief is required for this one.
That ESP/paranormal issues aside, I really liked this book. Nathan and Shea work really well together. This is the first book in this series were the romance doesn’t feel rushed or too slow. They did know each other before they met, which gets back into the telepathy.
There are at least two groups after Shea and her sister Grace, one group that’s on her side (I’m not including the KGI in this list), but she doesn’t know it and another group that we don’t really know yet. The group that’s on her side includes a big surprise that I wasn’t expecting (for once).
