Publisher's Summary

Evolved Publishing presents a suspenseful, thrilling glance inside one woman's extraordinary connection to the elements around her, in Whispers of the Dead by C.L. Roberts-Huth, the first of the Zoë Delante Thrillers. [DRM-Free]

[Paranormal, Thriller, Suspense]

Murder was never something Zoe Delante enjoyed, but solving the cases.... She does that rather well, and has the track record to prove it. Yet when she's called in on a new case with the Baltimore PD as their go-to clairvoyant, she's unprepared for the heinous nature of the crimes.

The hunt for the murderer unfolds, dropping Zoe right in the middle of a power struggle between a nightmare of a coven, and a serial killer leaving bodies in ceremonial circles in the rural parts of Baltimore's city limits.

Will she discover the identity of the maniac behind the gruesome beheadings, or will she lose someone close to her first? A race against celestial bodies and the trail of earthbound body parts keeps our intrepid clairvoyant running right until the very end.

GREAT NEW AUTHOR, GREAT NEW STORY

Zoe Delante is a heroine you can really root for. She's dark and sad and proud and fearless. I was fascinated by the insight into Wicca. I couldn't stop listening once I started.

Very Worth reading/listening

The characters were highly engaging and kept me invested in the storyline. I found myself hating some and applauding others.

The action was fast paced and carried you along from one twist to another. I can't wait to read more by this author and would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery, thriller, or suspense novel.

Thrilling!!!

What a thrilling story that has magic, mystery, romance and a serial killer to top it all off. Zoe is a strong woman who just keeps getting back up and doesnt stop fighting for what is right for her and her loved ones. Just the type of lead I like strong but flawed. Kelley Hazen does a phenomenal job as narrator. Offering a good paced read while giveing each character its own distinguishable voice.

A taut thriller

Would you listen to Whispers of the Dead again? Why?

I honestly don't know. So many books, so little time. But I think I'd read it on my own next time. I think the character would play better there.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Whispers of the Dead?

The ending. But here there be spoilers.

Have you listened to any of Kelley Hazen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I just about did. With every answer you get at least two more questions. It keeps you coming back for more.

Any additional comments?

Whispers of the Dead is very much plot driven and when paired with Zoe’s outstanding voice this story quickly becomes next to impossible to put down.
Robert-Huth’s descriptions are spellbinding without putting even the smallest damper on the endless action. You’re in for a wild ride. With a riveting narrative and a storyline that just doesn’t quit; this book is a must read for any and all paranormal fiction junkies

An Awesome Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very interesting. If you like books about witches and monsters, you'll like this book. Throw in the police and a good mystery and that is what you have here. Well written and unique characters along with a fast paced plot will keep you listening. I'm so very happy that there is a second book.

Great Book!

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Murder investigation turns into a battle of magic

When I asked for the book I was expecting a crime thriller with a few elements of the paranormal in the persona of Zoe Delante, a clairvoyant police consultant (maybe of The Mentalist series kind, I thought). What I did not expect was the world full of magic, where were-creatures are a reality, where what you believe in might get you killed, where religion is an excuse for hatred and murder... just like in our world. That's one of the strenghts of the book - the fact that magic seems such a natural part of the reality created by C. L. Roberts-Huth that you forget it's fantasy and you promptly believe all that is happening is possible here and now... What's more, the magical part does not overwhelm the criminal part, that is the hunt for the monster who kills the innocent. There is a lot of suspence there, there are turning points and unexpected twists, all at a pace of a good rollecoaster...:)

I like the main character a lot; she's a strong woman who despite being a witness to the darkest sides of a human heart still believes in love, loyalty and friendship, and for whom the life of every living creature is as valuable as her own. Her friends and colleagues are equally interesting, with their own strengths and weaknesses and personal issues.

Kelly Hazen's narration is something more than just narration; it's rather an acting performance, and a good one at that. She brings the experience of listening to the book to a new level, with the emotions ringing true, with characters really coming out and standing on their own... Normally, I have a problem with male characters' voices when Ms Hazen reads a book but this time I had none:) All the voices sounded very good, good or at least OK, without making me cringe or sigh in protest:) So, this one is the best of her interpretations that I've listened to so far:)

Definitely a book worth listening too, especially if you like both crime stories and paranormal worlds.

Good Listen

This book was written by an author whom was new to me. I enjoyed listening to this book, but it was a little outside my preferred genre. I typically do not listen to many shifter books featuring witchcraft. I thought the narrator did great with the emotions and various characters. My review is not a synopsis of the book but my opinion of it. I was provided with this review copy Audiobook at my request and voluntarily written this review.

Weird Mishmash of Wicca and Horror Story

I liked some parts. The dialogue is well done, flows smoothly. The story line is well thought out. The Wicca basis of the magic, though is overwrought and so earnest, it sets a jarring note. The police acceptance of the magic is not believable. And I just found many sections just too creepy and bloody, but then the magic healed every injury! Thriller + magic, in this book, just did not mesh well. I could not connect with our heroine, or care much about her, and the tacked on love interests were unlikely and unneeded.
I finished it because 1) didn't have another book to listen to and 2) just had to get it over with.
And the reader sounds like she had a cold, but maybe that is just me.
