REVIEW – WHISPERS AND THE ROARS by K. Webster

new-front-only

SYNOPSIS:

***THIS STANDALONE IS BEST ENJOYED WHEN YOU DON’T READ ANY REVIEWS OR SPOILERS BEFORE READING. GOING IN BLIND IS BEST. TRUST ME.***

When my eyes are closed, the monster can’t ever see me.
When I sing a song in my head, the monster can’t ever hear me.
When I pretend my bedroom is a playground where I play hide and seek, the monster can’t ever find me.

The darkness should frighten me.
I should worry I’ll find more monsters…monsters scarier than him.
But I’m not afraid.

It’s safe here.
When I’m inside of my head…

He. Can’t. Ever. Touch. Me.

Warning:
Whispers and the Roars is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. The abuse written in this story is graphic and not glossed over which could be upsetting to some. Proceed with caution. This story is NOT for everyone.

”You are terrifying and strange and beautiful, something not everyone knows how to love.”

K. Webster is truly talented at writing the really dark stories but she also has proven to be quite a versatile author. Never pigeon-holing herself into one genre. Whispers and the Roars definitely has its dark elements but it is also a story about true unconditional love…something that only exists in fairy tales.

I really didn’t pay attention to the blurb and it actually made the book that much more enjoyable for me. It wasn’t anything that I would ever have expected, so I advise you all to skim over the blurb and reviews. It is truly best to go into this one without having any preconceived notions. I kind of figured out what was going on right before the halfway mark as I am sure most of you will.

I’ll give a brief sum up. Kady and Yeo have been childhood friends and sweethearts since they were in elementary school. Kady’s home life was extremely horrific and she had been severely abused by her father for many years. The poor girl has endured things that no innocent child should ever have to be subjected to, but the one loving constant in her life was the beautiful boy next door, Yeo. Yeo loved Kady despite all of her complexities and always acted as her protector, till one day she pushes him away. Kady didn’t want Yeo to sacrifice his life for her when he had the ability to go off to college and make something of himself. The two end up separated for twelve years but now Yeo is back in town. He’s become a doctor and Yeo is back to claim his sweet “Katydid”. Nothing and no one is going to get in his way, not even Kady!

really loved Yeo!! I rarely get to read about a Hero who is half Korean and half White like me and the fact that Yeo was, turned out to be the icing on the cake for me!! There was one aspect that I kind of found uncomfortable because it’s a subject matter I try to avoid at all costs but the special circumstances of this story made it easier for me to bear.

Whispers and the Roars is currently available! K. Webster fans are going to really enjoy this one and for those who haven’t read her yet and can tolerate really traumatizing subject matter, should definitely add this to your TBRs.
