I am no longer among the living - at least, I don't think I am. I don't remember my name, my age, or even my sex. I don't feel. I can't smell. I hear, but sounds don't register emotional responses anymore. I see, but it's all in muted gray. No vibrant colors.
No sense of time, space, awareness. I just float like a weightless cloud drifting through the limitless universe. I don't know where I am or how I arrived at this point. Ebony nothingness has swallowed me whole.
Can you help me? Will you help me? I need to know. Want to know. Have to know.
Who am I?
Where am I?
How do I escape this black void?
Please, help me.

Whispered Pain was an entertaining and thrilling short story.
The beginning was mystifying. I did not know what was going on at all, as the first few chapters were told from different characters’ points of view. It was rather intriguing. Then, bit by bit, the story came together magically, and everything got tied up wonderfully in the end. The way Ashley Fontainne weaved it all together was one of the things I really enjoyed about the story. The ending was rather satisfying. It is very difficult to say much about the content itself because it could easily spoil the plot. It all begins with a woman in a coma. She can hear people talking.
Basically, Whispered Pain is a very twisted story about sweet revenge that is full of devious characters and convoluted turns. There is deception, greed, betrayal and several deaths. It was quite amazing how much was put into 3 hours of listening. It makes you think about trust and family ties.
The narration by Andrea Emmes was very good. She used a variety of voices and had excellent pacing and intonation. She was very pleasant to listen to. There were no issues with the production quality.
Whispered Pain is definitely worthwhile listening to if you are looking for a short, suspenseful and very original story. This was my first book by Ashley Fontainne and I would certainly try others.
