Series: A Sign of Love #4
on January 25, 2014
When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.
Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Alexis and Tracey say…
Alexis: Incredible….that is how I sum up Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan. I have always, always loved her books, they are very unique but to be able to actually deliver this kind of hero (Archer) is nothing short of incredible. I read an insane amount of books and cannot think of one book that delivers such an exceptional love story. This is definitely not your conventional love story and I think that is what makes it so much better!
Tracey: I read this book three days ago and still haven’t moved on yet. I’ve always loved everything Mia has written (Leo, Leo’s Chance, and Stinger) but she totally took it to the next level with Archer’s Voice. It was such a beautiful and unusual love story.
Alexis: My favorite part of this book was definitely Archer. All of Mia’s book center around a zodiac sign and this was is about Sagittarius. I went ahead and googled what the traits of Sagittarius’s were and they definitely personify exactly who he is. He was generous, intellectual, overconfident (in a fun way), sincere in friendships, philosophical, just to name a few). Just thinking of everything that Archer went through in his life and how he seemed to accept it broke my heart. He was definitely handed the short end of the stick by people who were supposed to do the exact opposite. I know I would never and could never be as strong as he was. But, he was also the target of mean-spirited people because he was different. There is absolutely no reason that he should have been, but unfortunately, for a lack of better words he was bullied and it was just upsetting. That is, until Bree took a chance and befriended him and got to know the real Archer Hale, not the one that everyone made crazy assumptions about.
Tracey: The legend of Sagittarius at the beginning of the book gave me chills. It was definitely a precursor to Bree and Archer’s story, finding strength through pain. Both Bree and Archer were brave in profound ways because how they survived the terrible things they went through. Bree had an awful thing happen to her, but had the courage to find a new home and path for her life, and wasn’t afraid to get to know the quiet man who everyone in town told her “wasn’t right.” Archer spent his entire life in isolation, especially in his own head since he couldn’t communicate with anyone. He met Bree and although he was scared and didn’t know what to do, had the bravery to reach out to her and eventually love her.
Alexis: Yes, he definitely did love her and she him. At times, you could feel the inner turmoil both of them were feeling, their desperation for each other, and of course their love. Ah…their love story still gives me goose bumps. They were so perfect for each other and wow were they just insanely hot together. Kudos to Mia for writing some off the charts but also at the same time beautiful love scenes.
Tracey: I loved being able to see things from his point of view. He was smart, funny, and unbelievably sexy, so not just a crazy mute like most people in the town chose to believe. Archer experienced everything for the first time with Bree, friendship, lust and then love. That fact made the love scenes between them even more powerful – and yes, Mia definitely knows how to write an off the charts and unbelievably hot love scene.
Alexis: This was definitely a 5+ star read for me. I cannot even discuss the last 10% without crying, seriously! Oh, and that epilogue was exquisite! I am so in lust, ok maybe love, with Mia’s writing and she has joined the very short list of my favorite authors of all time.
Tracey: 10 stars were not enough for this book. Mia has been a favorite author of mine from the beginning, but Archer’s Voice is her masterpiece. She not only wrote a beautiful story about two people falling in love, Bree and Archer teach us how you should never judge someone without knowing them, and you can overcome the terrible things that happen to you and find happiness if you’re just willing to take the risk. I loved the epilogue too, and I’ll never forget Archer’s story.
