Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers (October 4, 2011)
The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They’ve overcome the secrets riddled in Patch’s dark past…bridged two irreconcilable worlds…faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust…and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they’ve worked for—and their love—forever.
not so patiently for author Becca Fitzpatrick to finally release this book in the series. She left the readers with such a cliffhanger in the second novel that it was torture having to wait for this one. I think authors love to torture the readers by making us wait!
I will start off by saying that Hush, Hush was my absolute favorite in this series. This one titled Silence, was just that. It left me silent for a few days and afraid to post my review. While I gobbled up every scene there was with Patch in it, there weren’t many to enjoy. Patch was very much in the background for this book. Nora has fallen from such a strong heroine in the first book to such a whiny and at times obsessive character that I want to just stop reading the series. It has been such a downfall for this character.
The ending was left open for another book in the series, but it didn’t end as well as the others had. It wasn’t a ‘wow’ ending but it does leave you curious for what is to come with Nora and Patch. I just couldn’t get into this one as much as I did the first two. This series seems to be falling apart and crumbling. I want to see Nora get her kick butt personality back and Patch be the Patch I loved in the first book!
If you are already a huge fan of the series, then this book might appeal to you as a continuation of the story, but probably won’t satisfy your hunger of Patch and Nora of before.
