Spoiler Free Review!
By: Sasha Alsberg
The Whispers of the Fallen by JD Netto was a fast-paced, heart pounding, and truly breathtaking read. There was never a dull point in the novel, it kept the reader interested with its creative storyline and mindful characters such as Isaac and Demetre. I want to keep this review short and to the point because the sooner your done reading this the sooner you can go out and buy this fantastic book!
When you first open up The Whispers of the Fallen you are immediately thrown into the world of Elysium and Tristar, in which you embark on a journey where it feels as if your really there! JD Netto spent six years working on this book and his hard work definitely paid off.
The plot line of The Whispers of the Fallen is very well developed and thought out because with such a complex storyline there could be lots of places a reader can get confused, but not in this book. One of the reasons this book was so good was the fast paced story line, there wasn’t a dull point in the novel and you hardly had any time to breathe before some other obstacle got in Devin and Isaac’s way. This was a strong element in the book but the only downfall.
With such an action packed book, I had a bit of trouble reflecting back to the beginning of the book because so many things have happened since then. So if a point was brought up in the middle of the book and you had to reflect back to the start of the book, it was hard to do. Other then that I praise this book for the complexity and mystery it brings forth which unravels while you read it in a well, thought out way.
I LOVED The Whispers of the Fallen and I would definitely recommend it to any “angel/ nephilim” lovers out there. If you are a fan of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare you will definitely enjoy this book. You may even recognize some of the characters such as Raziel and Azaziel!
I would rate this book a 9/10, I’ll be linking where to buy this book below so make sure you grab a copy soon! And watch out for Rebellion the second book in the Whispers of the Fallen series!
