She came to him when he needed her the mostGoodreads
She came to him at his lowest point. The voice of an angel, a whisper in the dark. She's the only thing that gets Nathan Kelly through his captivity, the endless days of torture and the fear that he'll never return to his family. With her help, he's able to escape. But he isn't truly free, because now she's disappeared and he's left with an all-consuming emptiness as he struggles to pick up the pieces of his life. Did he imagine his angel? Or is she out there, needing his help as he'd once needed hers?
Now he rushes to save her before it's too late
Shea has been on the run from people who will stop at nothing to exploit her unique abilities. She never wanted to drag Nathan, who'd already suffered so much, into danger, but she doesn't have a choice so she reaches out to him for help. Finally face-to-face after having already formed a soul-deep bond in hell, their emotional connection is even more powerful than their telepathic one. Nathan refuses to consider ever letting her go again, but she worries they can never have a life free of the dangers that dog her every step. He'll protect her with his every breath, but can he convince her that they are meant to face these threats together?

Whispers in the Dark was not anywhere near what I've come to expect from Maya Banks and KGI but over all it still made for a good read.
The suspense in the novel was spot on and who doesn't love the whole Kelly family? Their interaction really made the story for me.
Shea and Nathan, the H/h of the story, however were a weak spot. Their whole relationship was just too lovey-dovey, mushy-gushy. I couldn't buy into it. Then Ms. Banks threw in a huge supernatural aspect between them that I really wasn't expecting with this series that over-took the entire plot. Don't get me wrong, mixing genre's sometimes is great, but in this instance it just didn't work for me. I think this is a case of where the author should have taken into account these famous words; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I'm a little apprehensive about where the series will lead next but will stick with it, no doubt about that. I mean, this is Maya Banks we're talking about here so I will read just about anything she puts out. :)
Whispers in the Dark was not my favorite in the series, I'm not going to lie, but still made for a good read and kept me turning the pages. If you're a fan of the series I recommend it though don't be surprised if it doesn't wow you like the rest of the series has. New readers, start at the beginning. Believe me, you don't want to miss the Kelly's!
