Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand


Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand
New Adult Paranormal Fantasy

The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned, love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms.
Now, after five months at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer. A time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do. So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Point, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic stares or drunken class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuffed not with identification but with poetry illustrating the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I will not leave this boy’s side.
Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet…

My Review
I absolutely loved this book! It reminded me a little of Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, but for a slightly more mature audience (and I adored that book too!). Whisper had me hanging on every word, desperately wanting this beautiful stranger to remember who he was and why he was in the woods that night. When he does wake up, I love how the two of them interact with each other The fact that she gives him a name like she would a lost dog just sums up the kind of person she is.
I developed such a fondness for Whisper (what an amazing name, huh?), who had been through such hell herself. She is a broken soul and it's only when you get to the end do you realise just how broken. And it's not just the tragedy of losing her parents, there's so much more to it than that.
The fact that the author delved into Cherokee traditions particularly interested me. I do love to learn about people with deep spiritual connections and perhaps that is another reason why this book spoke to me like it did.
Not only will Whisper leave you breathless, it's also beautifully written by Heather Hildenbrand - a name I'm sure we'll be seeing lots more in the future and I know I can hardly wait!

About the Author:
Author of Across the Galaxy, Whisper, and the Dirty Blood series. I write, read, and fuss at my kids. Oh, and I do laundry, lots of laundry. I’m pretty good at it, too. Sometimes I even read WHILE doing laundry – and fussing at my kids. I’m a multi-tasker.

Likes and dislikes? I love vintage tees, hate socks with sandals, and if my house was on fire the one thing I’d grab is my Amazon Fire TV! (oh yeah, I’m a fan of puns.)
