Jackson has known Talon was his mate since he was fourteen years old. While he understood why the older shifter would not claim him when he was underage, Jackson doesn’t understand what’s keeping the man from claiming him now.

Gabrielle Evans Moonlight Breed series is about a group of shifters who have the misfortune of being white once they shift. This is something that is considered evil in the author’s shape-shifting universe. Because of this, each of the shifters has a past that they struggle to overcome. For Jackson that means living with the knowledge that his father tried to kill him after the first time Jackson shifted. Talon has had more time to come to terms with his past; instead he fears the future he may never have. As Whispers in the Night begins, it is easy to understand Jackson’s frustrations with Talon. At the same time, Talon’s reasons are sound, given what would happen to the younger man if they were to go through with the claiming. On top of the men’s relationship problems, the author has also thrown in some major problems for the pack itself, as well as introducing the future mates of two secondary characters.

Whispers in the Night is a great story. I loved when the characters are able to pull the reader into their story they way they did in this book. The deep love that exists between Jackson and Talon is clear from the beginning, even with all the denial. There are wonderful secondary characters, most the readers have met in the previous stories. The interaction between all the characters makes for entertaining reading. I can’t wait for the next two stories to come out and only hope they will not be the last in the series.
