IE Reviews Whispers In Autumn

You'll be seeing a lot more reviews here from the IE (Indie Elite) authors, kind of our way of giving back. We aren't paid to do these reviews, and they are our honest opinions so when you get a recommendation here, you know it's going to be good. 

Today's book is Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh, reviewed by IE member Heather McCorkle.

My thoughts:




This book earned every single star and then some, and I'm not one to give out five stars lightly. From the very first page it grabs you with its originality and compelling writing then it simply refuses to let go. An intimate, original look at alien invasion told in a completely unexpected and captivating way. This is one of the best books I read in 2012 and one of my favorite all time books. 

Here is a bit about the book:

In 2015, a race of alien Others conquered Earth. They enslaved humanity not by force, but through an aggressive mind control that turned people into contented, unquestioning robots.

Except sixteen-year-old Althea isn’t content at all, and she doesn’t need the mysterious note inside her locket to tell her she’s Something Else. It also warns her to trust no one, so she hides the pieces that make her different, even though it means being alone.

Then she meets Lucas, everything changes.

Althea and Lucas are immune to the alien mind control, and together they search for the reason why. What they uncover is a stunning truth the Others never anticipated, one with the potential to free the brainwashed human race.

It’s not who they are that makes them special, but what.

And what they are is a threat. One the Others are determined to eliminate for good.

You can find Whispers in Autumn on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and more.
