Twelve-year-old Riley Bloom - ace Soul Catcher - faces her toughest challenge yet. She must travel to ancient Rome and convince dead gladiator Theocoles to accept his fate and move on. Then she meets the charming Messalina, who gives Riley a dramatic makeover, transforming her into a beautiful teenager. Finally Riley experiences her first kis... In a world this enchanting, will she ever want to leave?
The Riley Bloom series is one of my favourite series because its a fun, quick and fascinating read. Whisper is the fourth and final book in the series and although I am sad that it is finished I am happy with the ending we got.
In Whisper Riley is sent to Rome on an assignment to cross over the Soul of Theocoles a Roman warrior who is stuck in a time loop created by a spirit girl who doesn't want to let go.
Whisper deals with the notion of growing up and falling in love. Riley tries really hard to cross Theocoles over but she fail's each time because he is so stuck in his time and world, eventually Riley just like every other soul catcher sent to cross Theocoles over gets sucked into his world.
Riley is quick to befriend Messalina, Messalina is the only girl in the entire world and she decides to give Riley a makeover so that she can fit in with everyone else. Messalina convinces Riley to stay in this world if she wants any chance of crossing him over and this is where Riley gets her makeover. Messalina transforms Riley into someone she has always wanted to be a teenager and with this Riley manages to catch the eye of a boy. Riley must figure things out before she is stuck in Messalina's and Theocoles world for good just like the other soul catchers.
The story was great and so captivating and kept my attention throughout and finally getting to see Riley transform into a teenager was great. I am glad that Alyson didn't make Riley go from being 12 to being 15 I am glad she had Riley become 13.
I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves Middle Grade books.
