REVIEW: Whisper of Memory by Brinda Berry

Whisper of Memory (Whispering Woods, #2)

Weapons training and winter formals...a deadly combination.

All Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard. Mia's brother disappeared over a year ago, and agents from the IIA began policing people's movements through dimensions. She'd trusted Dr. Bleeker from the local university when he'd told her the IIA were the bad guys. But even a girl with an extraordinary ability to sense things can make mistakes.

Now two people are dead, and as a portal gatekeeper for the IIA, Mia needs to find Dr. Bleeker before he hurts anyone else. And her boyfriend Regulus, an Agent for the IIA, carries secrets of his own. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?


After reading The Waiting Booth I was very excited to read this one! This book was still very good, but it didn't amaze me as much as the first one.

Mia now gets to be a portal gatekeeper with Arizona and Regulus. She now has to keep up with training and school. She still needs to find her missing brother, Pete, and find Dr. Bleeker (one of the bad guys). All the while she's growing closer to her boyfriend Regulus and becoming torn about the IIA. Can she really trust the IIA?

I still loved this book and enjoyed reading it, but this book had middle-book syndrome. Not much really happens in this book. There's a lot of the team trying to find Pete and Dr, Bleeker, and they do get answers. The training and Mia dating Regulus takes out most of the book as well. The book does put up the pace closer to the end, with unexpected twists. The twist is very upsetting, but it makes me want to continue the series even more, to see if the wrongs can be fixed.

The plot of these books continue to be very interesting and unique. The characters are also still great, of course, and I am becoming even closer to all of them. I mentioned in my review for the last book how happy it made me that Mia told her friends what was going on (a rarity in YA) and her friends continue to be a big part of the series.

Overall, while this book is a bit of a lull in the series, it does pick up speed near the end. I am enjoying this series so far and I an definitely reading the next book!

I hereby give this book

4 Wheels
Meaning: It was amazing!
