***THIS STANDALONE IS BEST ENJOYED WHEN YOU DON'T READ ANY REVIEWS OR SPOILERS BEFORE READING. GOING IN BLIND IS BEST. TRUST ME.***
When my eyes are closed, the monster can’t ever see me.When I sing a song in my head, the monster can’t ever hear me.When I pretend my bedroom is a playground where I play hide and seek, the monster can’t ever find me.
The darkness should frighten me.I should worry I’ll find more monsters…monsters scarier than him.But I’m not afraid.
It’s safe here.When I’m inside of my head…
He. Can’t. Ever. Touch. Me.
Warning:Whispers and the Roars is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. The abuse written in this story is graphic and not glossed over which could be upsetting to some. Proceed with caution. This story is NOT for everyone.
Whispers and The Roars is a story you need to go into blindly. If you enjoy a dark story that involves getting to know what makes a character tick, this is a book you won’t want to miss. As with most dark stories, there are potential triggers for some readers. The tags I’ve added to this review, are deliberately ambiguous so as not to spoil the story for others.
Initially, the first few chapters felt eerily calm. I knew this wouldn’t last and I kept wondering how long before it would all turn upside down. The setting felt a little strange and then I had a lightbulb moment where I was sure I knew what was happening. While I was right, there were twists along the way I didn’t see coming. I had no idea how or if the situation could turn around.
Kady’s full name, Kadence, fascinated me and, like the title of the story, I was keen to see whether it was a coincidence or not. I don’t imagine it was, but short of asking the author, it is an assumption on my part. The nature of the story is expanded upon in the note from the author at the end of the book with links to more information on the subject.
Whispers and The Roars is a story full of complexity, unconditional love, and survival that is bound to stay with you well after the final page.
