Whisper Cape by Regan Walsh

3 Stars

Whisper Cape is a good beginning to a new series. 

The story started a little slow as the characters and plot were developed.  This often happens in stories that are the first of a series and I'm hoping the following books just jump right into the story.

I enjoyed Addie and Cael and enjoyed watching their relationship grow.  I did feel Addie accepted things a little too readily. She just seemed to take everything in stride and there didn’t really seem to be any disbelief or struggle to accept her new reality. This struck me a little odd as she was not raised in that world and knew nothing until Cael showed up in her small town.

The final battle was a nice culmination to the story, however I would have liked for it to be a little more intense.  It just seemed a little too easy for Cael and Addie.  But then, I like final battles to be gut wrenching and intense.

I liked the way Regan kept the reader guessing on the identity of the real villain. It made things more interesting not knowing and trying to figure it out.  She did a nice job of spreading around the suspicion without laying it on too thick or making it too obvious.

The story ended in a tidy little package and the story can stand on it’s own. I would have liked to see a cliffhanger at the end of the story to guide me into not being able to wait for the next book. I will definitely read the next book in the series, but a cliffhanger would have enticed me to run out and buy the next one right away.

I look forward to reading more from Regan and Whisper Cape.

Thanks for the book review! I think this is one that I will read.

I love romance books. I recently read a new book by Slannyn D'Arcy called "The Gift". I loved the paranormal fantasy aspects of the book. It has a good vs evil plot. It is the first in a series of historical fiction.
