Now she was working in an adult theme park where visitors came to role-play their wildest imaginings. She reminded herself to stay focused on her job and to ignore everything else. The reminders didn’t work. One man drew her. Murmur was every erotic dream she’d tried to repress, every deliciously dangerous temptation she said she didn’t need. Her instinct suggested that this was a man who walked in darkness. She ignored the warning.But Murmur was more than what he seemed. A powerful demon, he used his demonic gift to destroy as well as seduce. In desiring him, Ivy had opened herself to a menace born centuries ago—one that would risk both their lives and betray the promises made with every one of his wicked whispers....

    For the most part I enjoy these for what they are. A three star decent read with humor and a little drama. And this one came through with that. Murmur's music demon. Extra points for the uniqueness with that. He's come to the castle to help his friend Bain and has stuck around longer then he intended. Bain has teamed up with a fey and wants Murmur to bring in the hunting fey who have Bain's love. They took her centuries ago but time moves differently with the fey and she'll still be alive. They intend a trade and the tradee is Ivy, Sparkle's new assistant.Ivy is human and while not afraid of spiders and rats foist upon her by a jealous troll, she is afraid of demons and Murmur worries her from the start. But she sticks with him to face her fears, helps Sparkle, and tries to fight the inevitable attraction to Murmur. The plot moves at a good clip, has fear, friendship, betrayal, loyalty and that's just the beginning. Murmur has ticked off his arch demon master and you know that can't be good.The end is tidy, just as you'd expect. And Sparkle isn't as annoying as usual, another plus.There are niggles that leave it in three star territory. I couldn't see what Ivy and Murmur had going for them. She's human, has a little fey power, and is practical but there is nothing there that pulls the two together. No common interest. Frankly I was baffled so their HEA feels a little forced. And despite her bravery at times, the author throws her and her 16 year old brother into cringe worthy TSTL territory.But I still enjoy these, and hope Bain gets his story.

    Another action packed story. However.....I had trouble with Ivy and Murmur's relationship. Yes, demon.. fear factor involved. But as we get deeper into a budding relationship the fear of the other party should diminish but its well into it. And the sex scenes were.. un-descriptive. Since music is a big part of Murmur, of course its all up in the grill of sex. And, after first encounter, they have very... stilted reaction to each other.. very awkward. Felt more like casual hookup awkwardness.Again.. still a good action book and while there are times I just didn't understand the byplay between MCs it was worth the read.

    I always admire Bangs' creativity. And her hot heroes. Murmur is one of the hottest. And Sparkle and Ganeymede are back in fine form. You'll laugh and sigh over the latest in the Castle of Dark Dreams book. How does she think this stuff up? Enjoy.

    Originally posted at: http://www.longandshortreviews.blogsp...I adore the Castle of Dark Dreams. There is always interesting mayhem, hunky tortured heroes in need of saving and a couple of Cosmic Troublemakers to keep the stories from taking themselves too seriously. Ms. Bangs does serve up a satisfying assortment of drama, suspense, double-cross and general spookiness but it’s balanced with a delightful sense of quirkiness, naughty and sometimes suggestive humor or outright knee slapping hilarity. Every book has a troublemaker and every tale has a romance but other than that, they always seem to surprise me with the author’s creative imagination. Each novel is unique and Wicked Whispers carries on that fine storytelling tradition.Murmur’s signature T.V. game show should be Name that Tune – win and die. He’s a demon and his music kills. He doesn’t sound like the ideal candidate for a hero, does he. Let me assure you, he’s perfect. He has feelings that are new to him because he’s been topside on Earth too long. It was fun watching him see-saw between wanting to feel, not wanting, interested in what they mean and afraid of what they might mean. The poor guy was all over the place until one fateful night he got more ‘feelings’ then he was prepared to handle. He met Ivy. She drove him nuts and yet she intrigued him. He thought it was bad before but with Ivy on the scene, emotions and urges bombarded him and the results were often sweet, sometimes smoking hot and other moments were just plain funny. How could I not like him?Ivy was a terrific heroine. She has family and is loyal. She has a great work ethic and experiencing weirdness, like having a spiderfest, didn’t seem to faze her at all. Then again, when a reader finds out about her family history, I suppose that explains a lot. It sure made her fascinating and a perfect partner for a music demon. She was a sweet heroine to get to know and I enjoyed how the author put her in all kinds of predicaments to see how she’d react. Add in her feisty internal dialogue and I found the book vastly entertaining.That’s the thing with most books written by Ms. Bangs. Her dialogue is usually crisp, with fast repartee that includes great puns and social references that flow naturally between her characters. It’s like a reader is in on an inside joke.Music has the power to sooth the savage beast but in this book it has a way of making a woman swoon, pant and generally feel like she’s had the best release ever. However, it’s not as it first appeared and I was wow’d by the concept. Ivy is no pushover and she gives Murmur a what-for. I do so love a spunky heroine.Secondary characters are integral to the plot conflict and that includes Bain. After reading this novel, I’m pretty sure he’s going to be in dire need of a Cosmic Troublemaker assist because his happy ever after is in a pickle. The dude got shocked with a capital “S” and in a most spectacular fashion. It’s a great hook for his future story and I can’t wait to read how in the world Ms. Bangs is going to fix his ‘whoops!”.Zane is back. He’s another character that populates the Castle of Dark Dreams and although his role is small as a secondary personality, his potential is huge. The dynamics between him and his dad are always an attention grabber. Again, he helps with the hero and heroine and doesn’t undermine the focus of the story. It’s just always nice to see him because someday, the spotlight will be on him.As for the bad guys and the conflict, all I have to say is, ‘very cool’. I never suspected a thing until Ivy started noticing some inconsistencies. The battle was part scary and part fun. I guess it has something to do with who was doing the fighting and how it took place. Like I said, Ms. Bangs has a great imagination and the story is very entertaining because of it.Read Wicked Whispers if you’re in the mood for fun and chaos with a little loving on the side. The happily ever after is sweet and true to character and the hijinks between Asima and Sparkle should induce a few giggles. This is a great book to spend some time with and relax.

    Wicked Whispers, Castle of Dark Dreams #6, by Nina BangsGrade: B+“Personally, I don’t like the clawed hands. It’s tough to play a guitar with them.”If you are not reading the Castle of Dark Dreams series you are missing out on some great paranormal books and characters. Wicked Whispers is the sixth book in the series that takes place on an island off the coast of Galveston, Texas where people come to have their wildest fantasies acted out by real life vampires, demons and wizards. Of course the guests don’t know they are around some of the most powerful creatures on the planet that could destroy the world with one temper tantrum. At this point I highly recommend reading the books in order or you will be very lost with who the characters are and what’s going on.Wicked Whispers picks up not far after Wicked Edge ended and this time we get Murmur’s story. I for one loved Murmur in the last book and was so excited to learn more about him and his deadly songs. Murmur has agreed to help a friend out and use his songs to call the Unseelie to the castle in hopes of rescuing the lost love of his only friend and agreeing to offer Ali Ivy, new assistant of the castle, in exchange. As Murmur spends more time with Aly he realizes that she may not be what she seems and she just might be the first women to ever capture his heart.Ali wasn’t my favorite character at first but as the story goes along she turns into one of my favorites. What I love about Nina Bangs is that things are never what they seem and Alis is a perfect example of this. Whenever you read one of these books there are so many twists and turns that will keep you up reading until everything has been revealed. If anyone knows how to keep a reader interested it’s Nina Bangs and she never disappoints.I loved being back at the castle with all of the old characters especially Sparkle who has to be one of the best characters ever written. Sparkle may not be the nicest person but she sure keeps things interesting especially with Ali and Murmur. This is by far my favorite book in the series mostly because of Ali and Murmur and also the unexpected twist of Ali’s family. I could not put this book down it was that good.I was so nervous about this book but I loved it and can not wait to see what happens next. There is never a dull moment in this crazy world that Nina Bangs has created and I love every minute that I get to read about it.

    In Wicked Whispers, Nina Bangs reintroduces us to the Castle of Dark Dreams, an adult theme park and its sinfully wicked cast of supernatural characters. Ivy Lowe wants a normal life, but she unknowingly takes a job at a hotel run by cosmic troublemakers, vampires, and demons. She meets a mysterious stranger on the beach. Murmur, the demon of music, draws her into a sensuous dance that should be her death. Ivy frees herself from his grasp temporarily, but his sensual lips, the heat of his touch, and the passion in his eyes draw her back to him. Their romance ensnares them in a supernatural war that pits them against unworldly creatures and Murmur’s own Master of the Underworld. Murmur risks losing his freedom and beloved music for Ivy and Ivy must chose to stay and fight for Murmur or run back to the safety of a normal life.I loved the way Nina Bangs cleverly woven the internal conflict of both Ivy and Murmur. I fell in love with the sexy demon and his courageous heroine. Her secondary characters felt like old friends and you literally walk in the main characters’ shoes. I truly couldn’t put the book down. This is the sixth book in the series and even though I’ve only read two, I didn’t have any trouble starting in the middle of this series. If you’re looking for sensuality, passion and yes, characters with an abundance of sex appeal you’ve found the right book.I have to say that Wicked Whispers is my favorite Nina Bangs book. But of course I’ll say that about each new release because Ms. Bangs seem to only get better and better!

    Hmmm... You know, in the previous book, I could have sworn that Murmer said his body was Fey (and I just read the two back to back; my memory isn't that flaky). Now, he's attracting the Fey to the CODD and nobody is going to notice? Emmm... Right.And our h is Mab's great granddaughter. All of Mab's sons are...dead. Ok, wonder why. No, not really.So our h, who doesn't believe in supernatural anything, finds herself meeting...lots. Somehow she manages not to run screaming into the night, although she did take a walk on the beach and run into our H. Much excitement (some good, some not so good) later, they're an item. There's a certain sense of ahh...sameness I picks up when reading the this close together, like there must be a battle of some sort near the end to the way of a HEA. This one gives us two - since the H is a demon, he has an evil overlord type he has to answer to, although he's not been to the underworld since he landed he Fey body. The overlord wants him to return because...the longer they stay on earth, inhabiting a body, the less inclined they are to rain death and destruction on mankind. He's been around a while so... Yeah; he and another demon refuse to return, master comes to drag them home, battle number one ensues.Battle number two ended up being a minor skirmish I think, because another fey army showed up (rebels), so most of the gang headed for the castle to wait it out.And in the end, he 'splains how she gets to live forever with him. Huh.

    3 star = I liked it - As much as I've enjoyed the formula of the Castle Dark Dreams stories - with pairing that are just so wrong for each other that they end up being just right - the last few books have been just a little too formulaic, so I was happy that in not following strictly by the numbers and lightening up on the role of Sparkle and Ganymede and Asima, Wicked Whispers ended up being on of the best stories in the series in a while.I really liked Mummur who is a demon who wields music as a weapon but who is evolving past his hellish origins and learning to feel, and starting to form gasp friendships and learning to trust and even love. His heroine Ivy is Sparkle's new assistant and totally unaware of creatures who go bump in the night and is drawn to Mummur even as she is afraid of him. And I liked the complications with the coming of the Wild Hunt in the background and Sparkles part in that battle and another with the demon host. So, even though I did notice the continuity nit with one of the character's appearance – though it might have just been glamor- I enjoyed this latest trip to Castle Dark Dreams.Castle Dark Dreams:

    Welcome to the Castle of Dark Dreams where your fantasies come true. Meet Murmur, a music demon. He can kill, manipulate the weather, and control others actions with the power of the music he creates. He is at the Castle to do a favor for his friend Bain. Ivy has arrived at the Castle to start a new job as Sparkle Stardust’s new assistant. She really wants this job to work out but she has no clue that the management at the hotel is anything other than human.Ivy and Murmur’s first meeting is like something out of a dream; moonlit beach, dreamy music, dancing under the stars. The second meeting is a lot rockier but it opens the door to the start of their relationship. Ivy has to cope with finding out about non-humans and the implications that has on some of the things her family has had to endure. Murmur has to learn to trust and deal with a host of emotions he has never felt before that also goes against his demon nature. Decisions made by several secondary characters may cost everyone their lives. If they can all survive what is to come, Murmur and Ivy may just find what neither of them was looking for.

    This isnt the first book Ive read by Nina bangs but its the first Ive read in the Castle of Dark Dreams series. Of course it had the requisit bad ass hero with isses and the heroine with daddy issues and omg suddenly has powers (cliche in both YA and adult romance) but sill I enjoyed the fact that Murmur (choke) really had been a bad ass demon that enjoyed killing but has changed but Ivy did annoy me so much Kellen needed a parental smack down she didnt really even seem to care she has to remind herself to ask how he was and even sid she preferrd to pretend everything was okay with him! come on!!! Anyways she wasnt as smart as I thought... Of course I have a Zane crush yummers =D so back toit liked it but it wasnt the greatest the Heroine was selfish helpless and in the way with ALMOST no redeaming qualities while the Hero was snarky cynical sexy as hell but was mature and loyal if not always honest.

    I haven't been back to this series for a while, but picking up and reading this book was like being back with old friends. The Castle of Dark Dreams is run by Sparkle now, still with her Ganymede. Our hero for the story is a music demon and our heroine is part fey. Vampires, demons, fairy, shifters, and sourcers float through the story line as Murmer our hero faces challenge after challenge. Ivy our heroine learns to see him as he really is now and not as he once was. Two very different but loving and hot passion scenes in the book make you see love in a whole new way.A fun and fast paced read.

    The Castle of Dark Dreams is definitely a place I love to visit. It is filled with action, magic and sigh-worthy romance. I loved the story of Murmur who can kill with his music and Ivy who he bewitches one dark night on a Galveston beach. The story is filled with action and quirky characters such as Sparkle the cosmic troublemaker, Ganymede, the fat grey cat and Asima, the messenger of the goddess Bast. If you enjoy a story filled with demons, fairies, wizards (and more) along with a passionate romance, this is definitely the book for you.

    Well this was the most musical book I have read. LOLNot my fave CODD book of hers, but definitely entertaining. Ganymede, Sparkle, and Asima always crack me up. It was cool to finally see what Asima looked like outside of her cat form, however, I thought the first time it said she was blond, then the second time her hair was either I misread one or that is such a silly, preventable error and it bothered me for the rest of the book.

    Book #6 in the Castle of Dark Dreams series. I just love this series and the author - as soon as I finish one book I want to read all of the series over again. That could get time consuming so I don't but I do think about it. This one is about Murmur (who we met in book 5) and Ivy (Sparkle's new assistant). It's everything we've come to love about this series, and that includes LOTS of Sparkle and Mede! Enjoy!

    Nina bangs wrote a great series "The castle of dark dreams". I highly recommend reading this series to anyone. A hilarious mix of characters including Bast's messanger cat, a bunch of cosmic troublemakers, demons, angels, vampires, Fae and the Sex obsessed owner Sparkle.

    I'm very glad that Murmur got his own story. He really deserved his happiness and this book does not disappoint. Ivy wasn't the heroine I would have matched with Murmur but I guess she fit with him in her own way.

    3.5 stars Bangs continues to expand this world and its characters. Even her reoccurring ones continue to move forward in their lives. I have a feeling for a hero in a future book based on some of the closing events in this book. Bangs to me is always good for some laughs and some smexytimes.
