Review: Sound (The Delta Girls #2) by Juliet Madison



Book Blurb

Five extraordinary sisters discover that they each have a unique talent, an extra-sensory perception that enables them to see what others can't. It makes them incredible, it puts them in danger, and it brings them closer to learning the secrets that have haunted them their entire lives. These are the Delta Girls.

Serena and her sisters read a private letter their father wrote to their mother, revealing a clue about his disappearance that they never knew about before. But as they struggle to gain further insight through their sensory visions, trying to solve the mystery continues to prove elusive.

The Delta Girls try to move on, balancing their supernatural abilities with the daily trials of being teenagers. Studious Serena teams with the classroom outcast, Lara, and her charming brother, Damon, for a school science project. They end up studying more than they bargained for, though, when strange noises come from rooms in Lara and Damon s house. There are voices, but only Serena, with her special powers, can hear them. This is until the trio experiment with Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) and are able to record and hear them on the computer.

Bringing in her extraordinary sisters to help, Serena must figure out who the voices belong to and what they want if she is to have a chance at stopping an impending tragedy before it s too late.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Serena is a Delta girl with the gift of sound. Her brain is also pretty analytical, solving problems that seem to arise. She and her sisters are dealing with seeing their dad’s ghost and reading the letter their mom had. They don’t want their mom to know they snooped. They don’t want to upset her. She seems to be moving on.

So when Serena gets paired with her science partners for a project, she gets thrown into a ghost mystery. Her partners, Damon and Lara, are twins who live in an old, huge house. At one of their study groups Serena hears strange voices. Damon and Lara don’t appear to have heard. Serena has to work hard to keep her ability a secret. She is also developing feelings for Damon.

The twins’ family life is complicated. Serena gets swept up in Lara’s personality and her need for control. She is also drawn into solving the ghost mystery. There are three ghosts haunting their house and Serena helps figure out why. She is also trying to figure out where the scream came from in one of her visions that occurred with her sisters. It seems a life and death situation that the sisters are desperate to puzzle out. Everything gets complicated with Damon and Lara before Serena is able to figure out exactly whose life is in danger. The Delta Girls have to trust in their instincts and their abilities.

I really like this series. I’ve now read the first two books, Savannah’s story and Serena’s story. Serena’s story isn’t as full of danger and adventure. Her story centers around a more intellectual, problem solving. The ending and the almost fall down the stairs are really the only danger that Serena finds herself in.

The mystery that surrounds their father and their visions are the focus of the sisters. Serena also needs to deal with her feelings for Damon and providing balance with school work and Lara. The trials and tribulations of a teenage psychic that has the gift of heightened sound. Her gift is fascinating. She hears things others don’t which can hit her suddenly or get songs stuck in her head. That would drive me crazy. Hearing things I can’t always see is a gift I’m not sure I would want. I spent some of the time reading asking myself how I would react in this situation if I had her talent.

Serena is a fascinating character and part of a unique group of sisters trying to use their individual gifts to help people and find the truth. I can’t wait to read Sasha’s story. I give this book a 4 out of 5.
