Whispers In The Dark - Maya Banks

Book Blurb:
Nathan is being held captive and is in agony. His saving grace is the voice of an angel who eases his pain and helps him regain enough strength to escape. When he does, she leaves him with a void that he can barely stand. When he escapes and returns to the KGI, he hears her again-now she needs him.

Her name is Shae, and she's on the run with her sister. A government group wants to harness their abilities to heal. The KGI wants to help- but can Nathan quiet his soulmate's doubts and convince her that they are meant to face these dangers together?

In My Own Words:
While being held captive, Nathan starts to think his mind is slipping when he hears the voice of an angel in his head.  He further believes that he is loosing it when his pain mysteriously leaves his body after a severe beating.  When she helps him escape, he is left with more questions than answers.  Shae is running for her life, not believing she has anyone she can trust or turn to, so when she makes a connection with a soldier and helps him, the connection isn't only in the mind, it is also in the heart.  So when she needs him the most, she reaches out to him hoping he will take a leap of faith and come to help her.  When they finally meet face to face, the story Shae reveals shocks Nathan to his core.  While helping Shae uncover who is after her, and why, Nathan falls for her...hard.  He isn't willing to let her go, no matter what the cost.

When I first got wind that this book was going to have a para element, I was very disappointed.  This book is in the middle of the series and none of the other books were para, I wasn't sure she knew what she was doing.  BUT, that being said, I really enjoyed this book.  The para elements...worked.  The chemistry was immediate and believable.  Shae and her sister brought an interesting element to this book and I think they will bring interesting elements to the series.  My only gripe would be that some of the para dialogue was a little cheesy, but given the circumstances they were placed in, some of it could be understandable.
