The Whispering Hollows review

27221254Part Two: The Burning Girl

Ten years on, Eloise is a renowned working psychic who has resigned herself to her role in The Hollows and to “The Work.” She’s discovering some disturbing things—secrets about her genealogy and the dark history of The Hollows, and that her granddaughter, nine-year-old Finley, has her own powerful gifts. Most disturbing of all, Eloise realizes that not all of the whispering voices are calling for help. Some of them are looking for trouble.

Part Three: The Three Sisters

When Finley, now nineteen, comes to live with Eloise, Eloise’s abilities transform. Her load is somehow lighter, and rather than chasing down people she needs, they are coming to her. She teams up with a detective to help a desperate father bring his daughter’s killer to justice. Meanwhile, Finley has bigger problems than she’s willing to admit. Can Eloise help her see the difference between justice and revenge—and the dark truth that nothing stays buried in The Hollows?

Well, I was going to review them separate but since the book had to be returned today, I had to finish both stories.  I enjoyed both though not as much as the first one.  Jumping ten years makes me feel like the author is skipping a lot of things that happened in between.  To become “renowned” in the second one, what all did Eloise solve or was involved in?

I plan on reading the other books – “Crazy Love You” which is the one I checked out tonight and then “Ink and Bone” which isn’t out yet.  I started the former but only got to chapter two before calling it a night.  My poor eyes need a break.

Great series, I recommend it.
