I loved this as a prequel to the Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy. I think this would be a great novella to give to someone to get them interested in the series and I'm really looking forward to reading the other 2 novellas from Michelle!

Review Taken From The Pewter Wolf

When I found out that Michelle Zink had written ebook Novellas, I got excited (like Emma from Book Angel Booktopia). And when it was revealed that these three novellas were linked to her Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy, I was intrigued. I've only read the first book in the trilogy, and I do have copies of the rest of the trilogy and Michelle's newest novel, A Temptation of Angels, which I plan to read over the summer or fear Emma's wrath...

But with these novellas

My rating: 4.5/6

I’m really happy that there are three short stories to accompany the main trilogy! Whisper of Souls is the first of them and it gives us insight into Adelaide’s feelings right before she died. It’s amazing that even though her character wasn’t really present in Prophecy of the Sisters, it influenced everything so much, and in this story we learn how it happened. It was great to see things from her point of view, learn about the reasons
A novella about Lia and Alice's long-dead-never-been-in-the-book-did-nothing-aside-from-killing-herself mother?

No, thank you.

No. Hell no. I will not pick up this book.

"Whisper of Souls" is a prequel novella to the " Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy." The story centers around Adelaide, the mother of Alice, Lia, and Henry. As Adelaide struggles with her own maternal and wifely guilt, she can no longer deny that Samael and the souls are looking for her to join them. I enjoyed it.

Michelle Zink is a genius.

I fell in love with Prophecy of the Sisters, so to read the story of Lia and Alice's mother was heartbreaking even though it is a short story.

I didn't enjoy it as much as the books, mainly because I had little interest in Lia and Alice's mother. I found it a bit boring and slow, but it does give more depth to the character.

A heart warming story about a confused soul who felt she wasn't strong enough to fight the demons whispering to her. She decided to take her life rather than giving in yo the lost souls.

It was really good to read Adelaide's, Alice and Lia's mother, side of what happened to lead her to the decision she chose. Good filling in the gaps of the main storyline.
