An eerie horror debut about a little boy who recovers from a mysterious pandemic and inherits an imaginary friend who makes him do violent things…
Kids have imaginary friends. Rachel knows this. So when her young son, Billy, miraculously recovers from a horrible flu that has proven fatal for many, she thinks nothing of Delfy, his new invisible friend. After all, her family is healthy and that’s all that matters.
But soon Delfy is telling Billy what to do, and the boy is acting up and lashing out in ways he never has before. As Delfy’s influence is growing stranger and more sinister by the day, and rising tensions threaten to tear Rachel’s family apart, she clings to one purpose: to protect her children at any cost–even from themselves.
We Hear Voices is a mischievously gripping near-future horror novel that tests the fragility of family and the terrifying gray area between fear and love.
We Hear Voices by Evie Green is a great suspenseful mystery with a bit of horror and supernatural elements. Family is definitely a key theme in this novel. The plot felt a little slow to me. However, the characters were great and that’s what made this easy to read. Evie Green writes in a way that makes me want to care about her characters-which I did end up caring so much about…Overall, it was different and entertaining at the same time.
