Book Two in The Whispers series takes place ten years after the incidents in Book One. Eloise has learned to control her psychic abilities with the help of Agatha, a mentor of sorts. Agatha claims that Eloise's late husband, Alfie, sent her to help Eloise. Agatha is a very experienced psychic and she insists that one cannot allow these visions, or spirits, to consume one's life. They will, she explains. Eloise knows it's true because she can think of little else. She hears millions of whispers. What do they want? When will they go away? Eloise knows they won't. Each vision requires something from Eloise.
Eloise smells the Burning Girl before she sees her. This small vision is filled with rage, a rage that is demanding an audience, like a child throwing a tantrum. One evening, Eloise follows this young apparition into the woods. She watches as the young girl dances in the graveyard, laughing with wicked malice. What does she want from Eloise? What will she take from the living?
Another great short story from Unger, continuing to tell the story of Eloise Montgomery and her paranormal experiences. As is most often the case with sequels, the first story, The Whispers, was much more appealing to me but I am still enjoying the storyline and I'm looking forward to the last installment in A Whispers Story series, The Three Sisters: A Whispers Story (The Whispers, #3). This is a three and a half starred book for me.
**I received this book from NetGalley.
