Mmhh I was a bit disappointed about this sequel. The first book was soo good but this one, not so much. It was a long read because nothing really happened until the end. The suspense and tension was missing and the spark between Lexia and Linc was not as good as in book 1.

I was hoping for lots of ass kicking, action filled scenes but no such luck. They were present but fell kind of short. It was a constantly back and forth between Lexia and Linc declaring their love and what the mating really me

Lexia's life is now spent on the run, after her fathers death and Alice being kidnapped she's struggling to hang on to what's left of her humanity. The good part? Lincoln and the bright spot he is in her life, his love for her is stronger than she ever imagined possible and it keeps her grounded while also showing her there is still good out there. But the good times can't last when her evil mother will stop at nothing to get her daughter back and Lexia will be left to decide just how far she'll ...more

I finally had a chance to read 'Whispers of Darkness'.... hot damn, I started this book & was instantly back in the lives of Lexia & Lincoln. I found myself enthralled to the magic that was on the page. I highly recommend you read 'Lexia' book 1 of "The Deadwood Hunter" Trilogy first, as 'Whispers of Darkness' follows on straight away.

I had tears in my eyes a few times throughout the books, some of the scenes where emotional (or maybe it's just me??)... You know Rachel finished book 1 '

Ms. Raithby couldn't have written and better follow-up book in her series. Linc and Lex are continued in this installment and their story just gets better and better! I certainly hope that more books are planned because it'd be a shame if it were to end. Love this series!

Good read

Overall a good read. Author is digging a hole not sure she will be able to get out of. Make the enemy to strong then it's not fun when you pull a win out of the hat.

I received an ARC of Whispers of Darkness in exchange for an honest review.

Honestly, it's awesome!!!

Book 2 of the 'Deadwood Hunter Series' has the same great qualities of book 1. It's action-packed with very steamy scenes between Lexia “The almighty Hunter/Wildcat” and Linc, Lexia's “Pretty Panther”. In this book, Lexia has grown stronger from her Hunter side and is powerful than ever!
And boy is she Hell-bent on stopping the one person responsible for making her this way... and that person

Well what can I say... 5 awesome stars

I've been waiting impatiently for the next instalment of Lex and Lincoln's story, and after the cliff hanger of an ending in book 1 I can say that every reader will be very happy by the end of chapter one...

Now I don't want to write any spoilers, so I'm not going to be able to write lots of what I want to say, but here's what I liked about it...

I'm flying through this series and I must say I haven't been so immersed in an author for a while. I love the fantasy meets science and intrigue. I've reached for the tissues box a couple of different times here and found myself sobbing in pain and relief. Readers will discover that humanity if stronger than genetically modified people used as a fighting force. Lexia's weakness is the source of her greatest power and I have a feeling we will see this come to light in the next book. Poor Lincoln ...more

I was given this book by the author through PRATR for an honest review. I was not sure the second book could get any better then the first, but Rachel has proven me wrong!
We met Caden at the end of the first book, who we find out is a doctor and a childhood friend of Lincolns. We also meet Caleb in this book. But I don't want to give any spoilers.
This book continues where the first left off (which I love). And continues Lexia's mother hunt for her. I was hooked from the first page, and it didn't
Actual rating C
There is a error in the kindle edition I downloaded (from amazon uk) where about 5 pages are repeated.
I read this book as I had read the first in the series and found it interesting. I wanted to see what would happen so I picked this book up straight after the first and read it. I wasn't as taken with it as the first as I think Lexia as a character went seriously downhill in this book - she annoyed me a lot & I couldn't really understand her huge change - the event which set

In Whispers of Darkness we get back to Lexia and Lincoln's story which is great after the cliffhanger the last book Lexia left us with.
I'm not going to say much about the storyline as such because I don't want to give any spoilers away. I really enjoy Raithby's storytelling and the world she has built is great. She gives us more about how the Hunters where made.
Lexia is as snarky as ever, I just love her. There were laugh out loud moments throughout just like the first book.

While I did not like this book as much as the first in the series, it was definitely action packed. Now Lexia is Lincoln's mate and would do anything to protect him and those she loves. She comes to at his best friend Caden's house, where they end up on the run from the Hunters that are still hot on their trail. Lexia gives in and gets captured to save her mate and friends' lives, only to be tortured by her mother. She learns more about the making of the Hunters and realizes many of them are in ...more

Mixed Thoughts

There are good things about this book, this series. It has action and the main character is strong. Makes for entertaining scenes. The main problem is Lexa. She's just a bad character. She goes from suicidal depression to righteous will to live to fast I think I have whiplash. It goes on and on throughout the book. The constant give up, fight, give up, fight yoyo just gets old. Lexa has ample opportunity to be really cool and just fails every time. Then there is the end. It's just

This book was a pretty good read. However, though it was nice seeing the characters relationships developed, I found the first half of the book, which seemed to consist of nothing but that, a bit too slow, and quite frankly would have prefered more of the action I remembered from book one, and less of the intimate moments between Lexia and Linc. The second half, thankfully, was much more interesting, and almost made up for the slow start with the action and surprises the author threw at us in th ...more

Whispers of Darkness picked up where Lexia left off. It took a while for me to get into the book. Once I did it picked up the pace and was hard to put down. I didn't agree with some of the choices Lexia made but I am willing to continue to read to find out what happens.
Some of the dialogue and the use of unnecessary exclamation points was a bit annoying.
My favorite character is Linc but I felt so sorry for him. Lexia claims she wants to protect him but she just keeps hurting him. I kind of wish

It just keeps getting better and better.

I was so enthralled with Lexia I didn't think it could get better. However, Whispers of Darkness is. The story is full of humor that Lexia didn't have before. The action and inner turmoil is never ending, but the relationships she shares with the others keeps her going. I know I felt like O was right there with her. I laughed and cried and can't wait to continue with our journey. I LOVE this series.

I enjoyed this book a lot! It's my opinion that the characters are well developed and the troubles they face are believable. The inner conflicts are amazingly written and could be conflicts that real people face daily. I can't wait to see how it all ends, so I better wrap this up and get started on the third installment!

Great second book

This book has love, loss and sadness. It takes you on a journey that is not over and I have downloaded book three as I can't wait to read it. I couldn't put this down. Part of Kindle Unlimited.
