Whispers in the Dark - Maya Banks

REVIEW

Whispers in the Dark

Author:  Maya Banks

Series:  A KGI Novel #4

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

 

I honestly did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did.  The paranormal twist to the story threw me for a loop at first, as this is a romantic suspense series, but it totally worked and I think it added something extra to the series.

Whispers in the Dark
Whispers in the Dark (KGI, #4) - Maya Banks

I wasn't sure about the paranormal element in what was a romantic suspense series. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it. It does end with someone still missing and I assume the next book will pick up right where this one left off. I enjoy the "togetherness" in this family. They do a good job supporting each other and at the end of the day, the women hold their own as well.
My only issue (and this was present in the previous books too) is the "like a girl" comments that get thrown around at times (like you fight like a girl, you cry like a girl- I didn't write down the exact quote in this one, I will keep an eye out in future books and put the quote(s) in my review(s)). I do think it's demeaning towards women (and men) and unnecessary.

Forged in Steele by Maya Banks
Forged in Steele - Maya Banks

Forged in Steele begins when Steele finally acts on his attraction to Maren. He's been lusting after her for a while now, but also locked down his feelings because he didn't want to be involved with anyone. So he decides to have just one night, and then leave the next day. Maren who also has a major attraction to Steele wants more than one night, but she will take what she can get from her, even if it means one night. But after that night neither of them stop thinking about each other.. And when he comes back because he admits he wants her again he has to leave soon to go on a mission not knowing the danger Maren is about to be in. 

A few days after Maren said good bye to Steele she is kidnapped, and kept with a crazy man who wants her as his woman. But due to certain circumstances he won't harm her..yet. So now Maren has to hope that Steele, and KGI will find her because she's not sure how she can endure staying with this man any longer... Steele and the rest of KGI will stop at nothing to get her back. And Steele finally realizes what he feels for Maren he just hopes he can see her again to tell her. 

Steele was a major ice man through out all of the previous books but man it was awesome seeing a different side of him. And part of it was fun to see everyone's reactions to his new emotional side. I laughed so hard at certain times, and was terrified during others. I really enjoyed this book, it was very good. And this series is seriously awesome. I can not wait to read more.

Shades of Gray by Maya Banks
Shades of Gray (KGI, #6) - Maya Banks

Shades of Gray begins when PJ and her team go on a mission. It's a different kind of mission than they've been on before because PJ is actually using her woman charms, not her sniper rifle. But when things go horribly wrong and PJ gets hurt she leaves her team to go track down the people who hurt her. She basically disappears for six months with out contacting anyone including Cole.. And now when they finally find her they want to help her with this mission. But PJ has a long way to go to accept what happened to her, and to accept the help from those who love her. We get to see a horrible thing happen to her, but she stands up strong and keeps going. Cole is also a big part in this book, and I hated to see him hurting for PJ Not just Cole hurting for her either, it was his whole team. It was truly amazing to see how they felt about what happened to her, and who they stuck by her side. KGI really is a family!

PJ and Cole are wonderful together. I really enjoyed reading their story. I felt for P.J through out the whole book I felt so bad for her. But I also admired what she did through out the rest of the book to get back at those who hurt her. She was extremely strong to go through all of that. And of course we get to see the other strong Kelly woman of KGI help PJ as well. They are all wonderful woman, and men. And I was very happy with this book. This series just keeps getting better and better with each book!

Hidden Away by Maya Banks
Hidden Away - Maya Banks

Hidden away begins with Garrett getting an assignment that means bringing down a traitor, and a man who shot him six years ago. But the problem is he has to get close to this man's sister to wait for him to show up. Normally that wouldn't be a problem but 1) Garret is better with blowing things up than women. 2) The minuet he sees Sarah, it becomes personal because she becomes his. 

With all of these problems going on Garret as a lot to deal with. But not just that he realizes that someone may be after Sarah to hurt her, and it could possibly why she has fear in her eyes, and is constantly skittish. Sarah on the other hand doesn't know the bad things her brother has done. She just knows he's trying to protect her, and that she has a hard time trusting after that was horribly broken by a man she worked with over a year ago. But now on the run to try to keep herself safe, and her brother safe she's going out of her mind. And when she sees Garrett it's the first time she's shown any interest in the opposite sex since that horrible incident so long ago. But when she learns to trust Garrett it could all come down around her when she finds out the truth about his "job."

I love Garrett! I thought he was awesome. But I just didn't think Sarah was right for him. I mean in some ways I guess she was perfect, but then I just thought he would be with someone who wasn't as afraid. But she did show a lot of spunk at certain times, and I truly felt bad for through out the book for what she had to go through. It really was horrible. But I just never felt much of the connection between the two of them. It didn't feel me up. But other than that the rest of the story was interesting. And I loved seeing the stuff that happened with Rusy. I really like her, and I hope she gets her own book as well. So I have to say I really liked this one, and it was very good but it wasn't as good as previous books. Now on to the next book!
