Past Nightmares – Whispers In The Dark by Laurel Hightower #LaurelHightower

I was approached by Laurel Hightower and given an opportunity to read and review Whispers in the Dark. Looking at the red cover with the girl in flames talked to me and after reading the blurb I couldn’t resist.

Cover Art and Design: Mikio Murakami

MY REVIEW

I am blown away by Laurel Hightower’s first novel, Whispers in the Dark. Very impressive.

The fabulous cover fits the dark story on the pages inside…the doors of hell opening up to her, calling her, the dead demanding her attention. Some warn her, others want…something from her.

Is her son in danger? Her daughter? Her friends and coworkers? All the characters have their part to play and I must say, I wouldn’t mind killing a couple of them myself, in the book of course. lol

Her son, Tommy, is the sweetest, bravest four year old I have come across.

I love Laurel’s description of grandparents…if the children are bad, they had to sit on the couch, watch cartoons and eat chocolate while they thought about what they’d done. LOL

I love stories like Whispers in the Dark, insidious evil lurking…

Her past was filled with terror and torture…visions, ghosts and the whispers, and now I know why. Her job with SWAT had put them to bed, until…Charlie Akers.

Is that a whisper I hear? Is that a shadow in the corner? Are those footsteps climbing the cellar stairs? You know there has to be at least one cellar!

The rich detail of the writing made me almost feel them reaching out for me, seeing their eyes peering at me out of the dark corners.

To get the full effect, I recommend reading the story at night, when you are alone, turning off all the lights and letting your imagination run wild. HA HA HA

I couldn’t put down Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower and it freaked me out. I love sneaky evil oozing its way off the pages, into my mind.

I was very happy with the ending, and I didn’t know what it would be. Laurel Hightower did a fabulous job with her first attempt at writing a novel and I can hardly wait to see where she goes from here. I am very impressed, can find no fault, and give it a giant stamp of approval…and, Laurel, I will be stalking you.

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower.
