What doctors are calling "Cotard's Delusion"-the disease Latoya contracted from the mysterious book-is beginning to spread across the Waking World, trapping the souls of its victims in the Dreaming, so that their corporeal bodies are mere husks, waiting for death to take them. Likewise, Erzulie is still trapped within the Dreaming, and her personality begins to shift, expressing fewer of her love-and -desire qualities, and developing more of her warrior persona, known as Erzulie Dantor. She may not be looking for a fight, but what function does a warrior have outside of battle?

    So while not on par with the first two issues, this issue is still rewarding and entertaining. Read Full Review

    Hopkinson continues to create an intricate and intriguing world for these characters as the mystery of what is affecting Erzulie and the urgency to get her out of the Dreaming continues to be compelling to the reader. Read Full Review

    This third issue is easily the most violent and disturbing of the series yet, and as such, it was my least favorite, but there's clearly a lot of mythology left to unravel here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 14, 2018

    This story raises a lot of questions, but the narrative is clear and shouldn't confuse patient readers. Looks like Mistress Dahomey has more tricks up her sleeve––and more sleeves! Read Full Review

    House of Whispers needs more character of its own by exploring its horror and voodoo roots. Right now it feels like a loose secondary plot to The Dreaming. Read Full Review

    This is the Sandman Universe, so I am sticking with this for the long haul and you should too. I suspect, that by the time we reach issue six, things will make sense. We will care and we can see where this is going. For now, tune in for some excellent pencil work. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 20, 2018

    I'm still intending to stick with House of Whispers for its opening arc but it's still continuing to be a struggle. It's a book I want to like a lot and it has so many small pieces that do work that I wish it connected better as a whole for me. Hopkinson does give it a sense that things are actually progressing more clearly this time and we get more wonderful artwork from Stanton that delights, especially with Mr. Monday and all that happens with him and the others underwater. I'm hopeful that the arc does include the creation and formalization of the title of the series as I get a sense that how it presents itself at that point is going to be the deciding factor whether to continue to invest in this story.
