Review: Whisper Cape By Regan Walsh

A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in end?

Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite.

WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father’s sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental.

Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road—a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse?

Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father’s death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities—a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie’s heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she’d left for dead.

Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them both in end?

My Review:

Addie was a girl tormented by horrible nightmares ever since the death of her father.  She has fallen into a melancholy state and can't seem to shake herself out of it.  She truly doesn't believe the story of her father's death and she feels so alone without him.  Even after the attempt to start over in Whisper Cape.  But that all changes when Addie almost hits a guy on her way to work.  She was quite certain that she swerved out of the way, but what happen to the man?  She couldn't find him to apologize and to see if he was alright.  But after a few near misses to where she is thrown into his path, Addie begins to wonder just how coincidental this could be.  How can a man suddenly appear out of no-where only to disappear again.  And why did he have to awaken something inside of her that she hadn't felt in, let's face it, ever?

Cael  couldn't believe his dumb luck that he materialised right in front of that poor girls car.  But rather than answer her questions he hides and observes her in his search for him.  What a mistake!  Taking a good hard look at his almost body-reorganizer, his stands awash in several feelings.  The problem with this is timing.  He has a job to do and he can't risk any complications or involvements. A killer is on the lose and he must be stopped before his main goals are accomplished.  Addie is unknowingly the key as to why the killer has suddenly popped up in Whisper Cape.

Together, Addie and Cael have many challenges to face.  The first being the hot and out of control attraction between the two.   As Addie becomes more immersed in the new changes within herself and discovering Caels world, the more dangerous it becomes for her.  Will their new-found passion be allowed to grow into something more or will the secrets tear them apart once they are unearthed?  This book had a delightful range of characters that you can easily fall in love with.  My personal favorite was Breena.  She was a lively little sprite that liked to cause trouble and play.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  I hope the next one is just as good!!
