Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

Source: Purchased

My Summary:

Nora can’t remember.  She’s been missing for three months but has no memory of that time.  But her memory problems go even farther than that.  She can’t remember the last five months.  She can’t remember anything about who took her.  She can’t remember the Black Hand or the danger that has been her life.  She can’t remember her love for Patch.  She can’t remember Patch at all.  As she re-enters her life, she’s shocked to learn that Hank Miller is dating her mom.  He scares her but she can’t remember why.  As little bits of memory flick in her mind and as she keeps encountering Jev, Nora plunges back into the Nephilim war.  But Hank is two steps ahead of her at every turn.  Will Nora be able to remember the past in time to save the ones she loves?  Can she remember the ones she loves? 

My Thoughts:

5 stars – a must read

I loved Hush Hush.  It was my first real angel book and I fell immediately for Patch.  Crescendo brought me frustration with Patch but in the end, he came through for me.  Silence was started with that same frustration.  There was too much of the beginning that didn’t star Patch but as soon as he made his appearance, I was hooked. 

I really enjoy the world that Becca has created for Nora and Patch.  I like the lore that goes with the fallen angels and Nephilim.  It’s complex enough to hold my interest without being too overwhelming to keep up with.  With the twist in this book, I’m interested to see how Becca draws this to a conclusion.

Of course, I love the characters.  Patch is by far my favorite.  He is so clearly devoted to Nora in this book that I wanted to smack her a couple of times for even considering doubting him.  With her developments in this book, I wonder how their relationship will change.  I wonder a lot of things at the end of another cliff hanger ending.  I will admit it’s not as bad a Crescendo but it still leaves everything up in the air, again.  I think I have come to accept that authors are going to do this to readers.  How else can they expect us to grab up the next book as soon as possible.  And I will be picking up the next book as soon as possible.  You should pick this one up too – as soon as possible.  It’s fabulous.

  3. I NEED THIS. Kinda suprised there's going to be a 4th book but I'm curious to see see what the cliffhanger is!

  4. I actually haven't read this series yet. It sounds good, I'll have to check it out. Though I'm not fond of this cover...

  5. I felt the same way with all of the frustration! I was so anxious for her to remember! I was almost giddy throughout the rest of the story, though. Great review :)
