Whispers in the Dark

Susan Hayes


Kyra Robinson is in trouble. She may not believe in monsters, but that won’t help her when an ancient vampire tries to claim her as his eternal consort.

Gareth Harkness is a vampire hunter with supernatural abilities. He spends his nights fighting the living dead and his days dreaming of an unknown woman who has haunted his dreams for years. When a string of violent murders brings him to Vancouver, Gareth learns his past and the future he dreams of are on a collision course. The vampire who once nearly destroyed his family has found a potential blood mate, and it’s the woman from Gareth’s dreams.

Two men, the hunter and the killer, both of them locked into a war only one of them can win. In the end, Kyra will have to choose, but before she can give her heart away, she’ll have to survive the darkness that threatens to take her life, her soul, and her sanity.

My Review:

Calling Whispers in the Dark, a romance is a gross understatement. This book was an epic battle between good and evil, light and dark, vampire and dhampir. It is filled with kick ass battles, supernatural beings with powers from another realm, and a turbulently deep emotional and physical connection between the hero and heroine.

Kyra Robinson, is the heroine that we all wish we could be, sassy, brave, and confident in her own abilities. Gareth Harkness is a hardened vampire hunter with an unprecedented set of fighting skills, and a mission to eliminate one particular vampire, Vladimir. When that vamp goes after Kyra, Gareth finds himself face to face with his own destiny. It turns out that Kyra is a possible mate for both the dhampir and the vampire.

Susan Hayes has taken the story of good versus evil, and spun it into a rich tale of love, lust, and a centuries old grudge. I was intrigued by how Gareth was going to protect Kyra from a supernatural being with the power to invade her mind while she slept, and then I found myself grinning when Kyra ends up protecting herself. They are a dynamic pair, and the sparks flew off of the page. I would highly recommend reading this one to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal story. I would love to hear more about this world Susan Hayes has created. Maybe someday we’ll get to know Gareth’s little sister Emily?

This was a great read, and I know it will be one I go back and read again. 🙂

  1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it Lori! One day I do indeed plan to tell Emily’s story, and in the mean time I made Aedan, the hero from my book, Guarding Valentina (the Paladin Protection Agency series), a member of the same vampire hunting order as Gareth and a dhampir in his own right.
