Blurb (from Goodreads):
Cousins Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope are all dealing with what it means to be a Lovegrove. For Gretchen, it means she often feels like her head is going to explode. As a Whisperer, Gretchen constantly hears the whispers of other witches' spells. And while this does help her to know when one of her own spells is going wrong, the incessant buzzing and pain the whispers cause makes it difficult to use her gift.
But when something evil begins to menace Mayfair, Gretchen must find a way to master her power. Along with her cousins, a madcap named Moira, and the icy yet irresistible Tobias Lawless, Gretchen faces deadly threats and unimaginable loss in the hopes of preventing the terrible Greymalkin Sisters from rising again.
The second book in The Lovegrove Legacy trilogy, Whisper the Dead will leave readers spellbound.
My rating: 3.62 of 5 stars

This was a good sequel, although what a cliff-hanger ending!
I liked Emma and Gretchen in this book. Emma was as feisty as ever, and Gretchen showed just how ready to fight she was. I also like how determined Emma was to get her father back from the underworld, no matter how dangerous.
The storyline in this was pretty good, and I liked the action. There were some twists thrown in, and it wasn’t easy to predict what would happen next! I liked the way Gretchen found a way to use her gift, even though it wasn’t easy for her, and she became quite important in this story.
There was a touch of romance, but not a lot. I didn’t really care all that much for the romance though, I didn’t really get much of a feel for Tobias.
The ending was a huge cliff-hanger, so I definitely need to read the next book now to find out what happens next!
Overall; good YA, paranormal story,
7.25 out of 10
