Listen, can you hear it? The explosive sequel to The Roar, now in paperback.

From a whisper . . . to a scream!

Telepathic twins Mika and Ellie are together again. But they're not free. If they're ever to liberate the brainwashed, microchipped army of children, they must pretend to play along with the tyrant Mal Gorman's maniacal plan - even as they mind-read all his evil thoughts. The cadaverous Gorman foresees a future in which he'll be forever young . . . that is, as long as the brother-sister fighter pilots fly over the wild side of The Wall and steal a top-secret age-reversing serum.

But Ellie and Mika have a master plan of their own. They can hear The Whisper. And it's telling them to lead their elite squadron of mutants in a revolt that will either save the world - or start a war.

EMMA CLAYTON lives with her two children in Leamington Spa, England. The Whisper is the sequel to her debut novel The Roar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelming follow-up I enjoyed The Roar, but this sequel was somewhat of a disappointment - not a satisfying end to the series. It's an okay read if you're looking for closure with the storyline.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Whisper"A knockout science-fiction thriller." -Kirkus"The science fiction adventure will get your adrenaline pumping and is not to be missed . . . Those clamoring for The Hunger Games or Ender's Game but not yet ready for the violence will find this satisfying." -VOYA"For kids who like their science fiction moving at the speed of light and chock-full of evil villains, mutants, cyborgs, Star Wars-type air battles, psychic communication, poison gas, and big bombs." -School Library Journal"Well spiced with super science, fantastic mind powers, and large explosions." -Booklist
