The heroine: Lucitari – she is an ancient and sister to Lore. Long ago she gave up a part of herself to a girl who was sentenced to a lifetime in Hell for something she didn’t deserve. She gave up that part of herself freely in order to protect the human girl knowing that the girl didn’t stand a chance in Hell without it.
The Hero: Murder – after being left behind by Lore and Destroy when they were on their mission to break Evangeline out of Hell, Murder was kept in chains and tortured. When his friends returned for him, he was beaten unconscious and since then he has had one goal and that was to get Phrygia, the woman who helped him out of Hell.
The Story: Murder felt drawn to Phrygia and thinks she is his mate so is determined to save her so they can be together. Though once she is safely ensconced in the Whispers community, deep in the Louisiana bayou, Murder still feels something is missing.
I like how these stories are multi-layered and nothing is as it seems at first. This entire series has been so good, I had only planned on reading the first book last weekend, but have yet to stop reading the series. I just love all the characters and how the residents of whispers are just one big family. I have loved every character I have read about so far and how each is charming in a different way.
The world building in this series has just been terrific, from Carnage and Caolena’s tree house in the Eucalyptus grove, to her home in Philadelphia that is now a women’s shelter run by Rowan’s parents and grandmother, to the scenes in Hell where the corridor’s kept changing every time they went back so it was difficult to find their way in and out.
This book had so much going on, romance, action, suspense and danger. More than one set of fated mates were found in this story, plus there was the introduction of the Dark One. To top off a great story, we also get Alligator shifters! 🐊
