Why have I not read this before!!! I have the ebook, but for some reason was hesitant to read it because I thought is was a contemporary novel. This book was all kind of amazing.

Her BFF is trying to get her out there a bit and has asked her to come to a bonfire, despite her reservations, she goes. Whilst there Taregan approaches her but sh

To see my full review:

When I heard that Heather Hildenbrand was updating and re-releasing her wonderful novel, Whisper, I was beyond excited. I first read this novel back in 2012, and I thoroughly enjoyed it then. And knowing that scenes were going to change, new events would be occurring, and that the relationship between Hildenbrand’s characters would be turned up a notch had me eagerly awaiting this novel for a re-read, and let me just say, it’s perfection.

So what happens to the soul when we die? Some religions believe we go to Heaven (Christianity and all the sub religions belonging to it), The Summer Land and subsequently reincarnation (Pagan Faiths and all other sub systems belonging to it), and then others believe the soul continues to live on life after life until the mission of that soul is complete, can this be real? Who knows, no one truly knows what happens after death, but what about what happens when there’s a curse initiated on a trio ...more

Whisper has suffered much after the deaths of her parents. When she stumbles across an unconscious boy in the woods, every instinct she has screams for her to rescue him. And more, to stay at his side no matter what anybody thinks, or how strange things may get. Even when he wakes with no memory of who he is or how he came to be there. This is a tale of love and loss. Of destiny and magic. Secrets abound. Secrets which tie Whisper and Dylan to a haunted past of darkness and blood.

This book blew me away. I am a huge fan of Heather’s writing and this was I think her best ever. I could re-read this 10 times over and still love it every time. Heather does such a wonderful job describing the emotions that Whisper is going through to a point that you almost feel what she is feeling. It rings so true to anyone who has had a tragic loss in their life. She brings hope when you feel there is no hope left or reason to go on. In Whisper’s story Heath

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I have had it for awhile, and wish I had gotten to it sooner. It is a story of hope, and curses, and love.
Whisper is a 17 year old Cherokee girl whose parents have recently died. Since then she has had a hard time moving on with life and being social at all. That is until she finds Dylan. Dylan brings hope back into her life. But everything isn't all happiness. Heather Hildenbrand spins a tale of magic and curses that had me anxiously turning pages to uncover the mystery. Ther
