Product Description

Rachel has no trouble believing in spirits. It's the living she has a tough time believing in.

Pick up SPIRITS RISING, Book 1 of the SPIRIT CALLER series for 99c here: amzn.com/B006T88RNE

A rash of teen suicides shakes the remote Newfoundland village that Rachel Mills calls home. As Rachel helps the school investigate, painful memories from her past - events she's worked very hard to forget - resurface and won't go back into the grave where they belong.

As if she didn't have enough problems with her personal life!

Her beloved 93-year-old neighbor falls ill. The man Rachel's in love with moves into her house-along with his girlfriend, the most perfect woman in creation. And a strung-out wreck of a woman claiming to be Rachel's biological mother shows up on her doorstep.

But it isn't until a local boy with a talent for spellwork is attacked by a mysterious stranger that Rachel asks the question she's avoided her whole life: how powerful can a Spirit Caller like herself become?

Dark Whispers is a 117 page/30,000 word novella.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's bring ALL the pain 16 Dec 2013

This one made my heart hurt, SO much. All the thoughts and feelings were SO familiar, and it was a little bit of reliving some of my own pain. VERY well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Dark Whispers 20 Mar 2013
By Maria - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second novella to the Spirit Caller Series. I did not read the first book, but received this copy to be reviewed by the author. For the 117 page story, the reader follows Rachel through her trials as a spirit caller and attacks not only on her but other characters of the story.

Characters: This novella is written in first person--through Rachel. She has the ability to talk to spirits but this ability does not function as it once did. Rachel is a complex character with a hard past. Many of these sufferings resurface.

Plot: Although a short read, the plot centers around Rachel dealing with her past, trying to cope with her biological mother showing up out of nowhere, teenage suicides, and unrequited love. The story--although part of an ongoing series--wraps up nicely but obviously not everything is fully solved. I consider it like watching a TV series and this novella could be one episode.

The way the story was written reminded me of a transition from young adult to adult books. The contexts have young adult themes (such as paranormal)/length and some more adult themes (the grittier side - such as the suicides and violence.) The "voice" of the story sounded geared towards young adults in its manner (sometime sarcastic and a voice that "spoke" rather than "described.") Overall, the book kept my interest and was read within one day. If you like paranormal and a fast read you might enjoy this book.

[3.5/5 stars]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great second book...roll on Book 3! 7 Mar 2013
By Naomi C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with the 1st book, this was thoroughly enjoyable and original. Since I got my Kindle in December, I've been dismayed at the high price of buying books from well-known writers and fed up with the difficulty of sorting through the cheaper stuff...but Krista D. Ball is one of two authors I've discovered that have turned the experience around for me. Initially, I was put off buying by the fact that both books in this series are novellas, but when I gave them a chance, I certainly wasn't disappointed.

I'm really looking forward to the next instalment of this series. And while it's refreshing to enjoy paranormal books without overkill on the romance, I think Rachel deserves an upturn in her lovelife at some point, for her sake rather than mine!

Recommended!

At A Glance
Dark Whispers was a great sequel to Spirits Rising. I love Rachel's story and the paranormal aspect, but the short length of the novella did not help it.

The Good
I was glad to see that Dark Whispers was better than Spirits Rising. This series does a great job of representing a unique outlook on spirits and the ones who can talk to them. I loved how this installment delved deeper into the world and character building as we learned about the "evil" organization out to bring down all the spirit callers and the important parts of Rachel's past.

Rachel gets quite a few surprises in a small amount of time. She meets her real mom and learns that her past is riddled with secrets. Her friends and family are threatened, and she learns the lengths she will go to protect them. I see Rachel becoming stronger and more resilient in just this book and all I can say is it's about damn time. I like this more confident Rachel.

All the side characters really contributed to the story. Each one had a unique personality that brought that special spark that makes you want to keep reading. The writing was well done and the ending doesn't wrap everything up, but leaves room for the story to grow.

The Bad
Some parts lulled because of Rachel's kind of "obsession" with Jeremy. I didn't like that the story had such a focus on Rachel's feelings for Jeremy.

With the short length of the story, I felt like some of the action and buildup was cut short. This book would have been better at novel length.

The Snuggly
Jeremy has a girlfriend, so it was hard to watch Rachel pine after him. She is obviously in love with him but he is too dense to see it. But by the end, we do see hope for their future.

No sex, so appropriate for a YA, NA, and adult audience.

Final Thoughts
You can read Dark Whispers and enjoy it without reading the first book, but I would suggest reading the whole series. It's a slower but exciting urban fantasy that will leave you wanting more. Recommended.

Quotes
"I'm not crazy," she said with a hint of a smile in her voice. "Not most of the time, in any case."

The man laughed. "Spirits do not affect me."

"They affect me," I shrieked, in a voice that I did not recognize. Power surged through my being and I stood, possessed with spirits who were completely out of my league. Memories of hunter and pretty, of anger, of disease, of revenge, overtook my senses and the protective spirit of the mother entered me. No one would hurt those I loved.

After finishing this second novel in the Spirit Caller series I have to admit that I will definitely be waiting for a new installment. The quick read was refreshing, well written and enjoyable.
