From New York Times best-selling author Calinda B, comes a dystopian tale of ruthless struggle and triumph.
For two long terrifying years, Sakhi Borren, and her beloved brother Reve, are headed to live at The Complex. An enclosed metal and concrete manufactured world on the barren planet Lorn, the Complex is some government's version of a good idea. Its sole purpose is to "heal the rifts between warring races" - a joke if ever Sakhi heard one. If she and her brother can survive to the end, they'll leave, far richer. In the meantime, all they can look forward to is co-existing with criminals and the scumbags known as Metas. She's scared of Metas. Her brother loathes them.
Strict rules and "guidelines" govern their every waking hour. Harsh punishment awaits all who violate the rules. It's a bleak, bleary, mind-numbing existence.
A telepathic dreamer, Sakhi does her best to get along and not make waves, working alongside her charming yet terrifying boss, Thrasyllus Blüthe, a decorated war hero. She dreads each night, where she'll wade through the hopes and fears of others, caught in their dream-state. It seems she can only escape one world to be entrenched in another. But soon its evident someone is stalking her in her dreams. It could be any number of Metas she works with. It could be her boss. But she suspects it's someone far more deadly - her worst nightmare and her greatest enemy - the Meta assigned as her parole officer. He wants her eradicated - only after he seduces her.
Surviving until it's over is no longer her only option. She needs to deal with what's right in front of her face - her present. With no one to turn to, she leans on her brother for strength and comfort. But he might have a few secret plans of his own that leave her with no recourse but to rely on her own faltering strength.

What a delighful story with lovely twist
What an interesting twist to the future and all it brings in this paranormal/Sci-Fi book. I really like the different mixture of people and how they learn to live together. There are some good times but more bad as a brother and sister try their best to make the most of the life they find their selves placed in. The author really goes into detail that really makes this story come to life with the vivid details she gives. It was very entertaining grabbing your attention from the first page until the last. The dreams are a wild trip you do not want to miss. There are some very surprising twists along with a few heartbreaking ones.
Ms. Norris does an outstanding job her character voices are given lots of emotions that you have no trouble relating to. Her male voices are just as good as her female’s ones. You know what each one is feeling as they go down the path they must. There are no repeating of words, no background noises, if any breaks where taken I could not tell. The audio is very clear and crisp that really gives you a very enjoyable listen. I thought the narrator really bought out each characters feeling, you could hear the hurt, lost, love, caring and anger in her voice as she plays out the story. Her voice is very pleasant in and out of character. It is a voice you can get lost in and you will forget you are listening to an audio. This is the first work I have listened to of hers, I am very much looking forward to listening to more of her audio’s. Bottom line the audio is well worth your time, I do plan on listening to it again. Ms. Norris performance was outstanding bring to life the audio for me.
Night Whispers is a very original, creative story with a wonderful plot you will be hook on from the first page. It is well written and well thought out covering every point. I have mixed feeling about Sakhi’s brother. He comes across as a me me me person but he is likable. I understood why he felt the way he did but I didn’t like how he treated his sister later on in the story. Sakhi I really liked a lot her heart is in all the right places. Thrasyllus can be a little confusing until you get the all over picture and then he just takes your heart away.
I loved how the paranormal was written, so many different people with so many different needs, personalities. It was interesting to see how things change and how they stay the same but are different. There were times my heart stopped a few minutes with danger all around, people fighting and killing. You are left wondering who will live and who will die. There is adventure, thrills, chills, excitement and few heartbreaking moments. I totally enjoyed this audio and can’t wait to see more of the author and narrators work.
