Overview

A compelling, addictive fantasy with romance and real-world resonance. Teenaged Jane Doe (aka Alyssa) has been locked in a secret underground government facility for over two years, as authorities have tried — unsuccessfully — to get her to speak. She knows her words have a dangerous power, and she’s vowed never to unleash it again. But now a young evaluator, Landon Ward, is assigned to break her resolve. The last thing she expects is for him to be keeping secrets of his own … The act of speaking has never been more potent — or more potentially deadly.

More like 4.5 stars. So glad I didn’t just trade this one away when I was late getting to it. The beginning of this book reminded me a bit of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. In a good way. You had this girl locked up alone, and she was being tested and treated as if she was really dangerous. The book takes place in Australia, which was a nice change. The characters were all pretty good. And the author totally made some of them change into different ways of behaving once "Jane" starts to realize, sort of, what is going on. It made for some tears from me anyway! The end had an extremely exciting scene, lots of action and edge of your seat wondering how and who would getaway. I haven't read a ton of books like this lately, but for awhile it was what I loved, so I did enjoy getting another story like this. I look forward to reading book two hopefully next year.

This was the first time I had read anything by Lynette Noni. I found this to be a story that caught my attention right from the beginning and kept me wanting to read right up to the end. This was a fun story with interesting twist on speaking and what can happen in a paranormal world. The author did a fabulous job of developing the characters and describing the setting. Whisper was a quick and easy read. The story has a good ending but leaves room for the continuation of the story. I will be looking forward #2. If you enjoy a good YA read this book is for you. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest review.

The speaking powers were really cool and the whole system was really interesting, the twists and revelations upped the entertainment value as well. I hope there'll be a book 2 because I need more! rating: 5 Stars! FTC DISCLAIMER: I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Subject Six-Eight-Four, also known as Jane Doe, has been confined at Lengard, a secret government facility, for two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes. In that time she has been tortured, pushed to her limits both physically and mentally, all in hopes of getting a response from her...but she hasn't spoken a single word. They tell her that Lengard is a place for extraordinary people just like her, but she knows there isn't anyone in the world like her...she's an anomaly...a monster...no one is safe from her. Jane is told that she is not progressing in the program and will be assigned to a new evaluator, Landon Ward, for a trial basis. If she doesn't progress in one month she will be eliminated from the program. Jane knows she will never be set free, termination would be safest for all of them. Whisper is the first book in this action packed YA sci-fi/fantasy series. I don't want to give too much away but this novel takes the power of words to a very literal meaning with characters that have supernatural abilities that are linked to their words. The novel begins by introducing a very mysterious main character Jane. Jane appears to be a prisoner of a secret government facility but you are not exactly sure why she is there or why she chooses not to speak. Jane is given an ultimatum to make progress with her new evaluator or be terminated. She realizes termination would be the safest option for everyone but when she meets Landon Ward, her handsome new assessor, she begins to doubt her choice. I'm a huge fan of novels with supernatural teens and this novel was so wonderfully written it had me hooked by the first chapter. I literally could not put this one down and devoured it over the course of a few hours. There is some romantic tension between the characters but it is kept very PG, perfect for all age ranges of the YA genre. I cannot wait to read the other novels in this series.

I Voluntarily read and reviewed Whisper. All Thoughts and opinions are my own. First Thoughts: I didn't know much about this book going into it. I haven't read this author before and I certainly didn't know what to expect. But man was I in for a surprise. I loved this book so much! Though it had the tendencies to be just like any other book but it was so good that I was able to overlook that. I fell in love with the story and for the first quarter I had no idea what was going on, I just wanted to keep reading till I found answers to my questions. There was so much I loved about this book, so let's get started. Goodreads Summary: For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four---'Jane Doe'---has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word. As Jane's resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new -- and unexpectedly kind --evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard's mysterious 'program', discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot...and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world. Plot: This is filled with lots of questions and little answers coming right after. This book slowly revealed it's secrets but when it did it was mind blowing. The best part of this book is the way the story was revealed. If the author had chose to reveal who the main protagonist was it wouldn't have been as fun to read. Half the fun is the anticipation. And this book has plenty of that! Also loved how it dealt with issue of inhumane experiments. It really let's the reader get a better grasp on the main character. We're really able to bond with the characters and understand that what is going on is not right. But we're also able to see others who go along with it, so you really get two sides. I liked the paranormal part of this book, it's different in a way that it's not really the same as usual paranormal powers. Though it's the same on how the powers play out. The main character hardly had any trouble mastering different parts of her powers and I wish I could've seen more of a struggle. But other than that the plot was fast and I really couldn't put down this book and when I did, all I did was think about it. I'm still thinking about this book and it's been days since I've finished it. Romance: I wouldn't say there was really any true romance in here; though there was a hint of it. I'm sure as the series progresses there will be some. But it was a nice reprieve to get away from a story just focused on the romance. So kudos to you Noni! Characters: The main character is referred to, to many names. One of them being Chip which I loved. But most of the book she is referred to as Jane, six-eight-four, or JD. The reader didn't even know her name till almost the end, so I will not be giving you her real name. so you as a reader, you can discover it yourself. But Jane was such a fragile and controlled in a sense character that it was so easy to get attached to. She was such a awesome main character and I loved getting to know her. Wade was a good character even when he made his mistakes. The other characters were good too like Cami. I instantly loved Cami, kinda wish she was my best friend. But the author did an excellent job describing the characters, that you either got to really like them, or really hate them. There is definitely some characters I wish to see die a very slow death, lol. Transformation of the Character: Jane di

This story has a distinct feel of La Femme Nikita and took a little while to get going and hook me. With Jane's tragic past and more than two years of torture and experimentation, you can't blame the girl for refusing to talk. During this time, her schedule is unvarying, she's held prisoner in isolation, and escorted in handcuffs by guards to evaluators who repeatedly poke, prod, and attempt to break her in one way or another. She's shown no kindness or affection, is self-reliant, and is angry, scared, confused, and accepting of her fate. But she finds the strength to survive and fight back in her own way. Enter a new evaluator - a handsome, compassionate guy Jane's age who treats her like a person, and it's understandable that she responds to him. But also disappointing in a way. It takes nearly 100 pages to get to this point, but then there's a snowball effect and things come to her almost too easily. I enjoyed the original premise, world-building, and twists, but wish less time was spent on getting Jane to talk and more on developing the secondary characters. They're charming and amusing, but I was left wanting to know more about them and how they fit into this story. With several things left unresolved and a strong hint of a love triangle, I'm guessing this is the first in a series, and I'm intrigued enough to continue reading. I'd recommend this books to fans of sci-fi-fantasy blended with covert government operations. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC.

The ending had me craving a sequel immediately. Action packed and thrilling, a picture was so well painted that I swear I was watching a movie instead of reading a book. A must read for 2018.
