In this book, we find out that Nora was kidnapped after the cliffhanger at the end of Crescendo, and kept for three whole months before being returned to her mum. Unfortunately for Nora, she has lost her memories of the past few months. She can’t remember ever meeting Patch, and she can’t remember anything about angels or Nephilim. This led to an excited plot in which Nora tries to search for answers, as well as trying to solve a couple of other things along the way.

The plot moves incredibly fast, and I just couldn’t put it down due to the non-stop action. The multiple fight scenes were well described and I felt like I was right there with the characters. The mythology included in this novel was also great, as is always the case with this series. I love the angels – fallen, archangels and otherwise – and I love the Nephilim.

As for Nora, I think she was much better developed in this novel than she was in Crescendo. She did come off as a little whiny and childish in the second novel in the series, but I think in Silence she has really matured and comes off as a much more well rounded character. She does make a couple of idiotic decisions here and there, but without those some ... things wouldn’t have happened. Overall, she was much more tolerable in Silence.

How could anyone not love Patch after reading this book? Ah! He is so great. We got to see him and his ‘abilities’ in action, and the way he protected Nora no matter what was awesome. He got them out of some pretty dangerous situations with some pretty dangerous people, and he didn't even bat an eyelid to protect her. I fell in love with him all over again in this novel.

As always, I loved Becca Fitzpatrick’s writing. The way she writes is simply superb and this series is just... *hugs it tightly* If you love paranormal romances you should definitely pick up this series. It’s one of my favourites of all time, and Silence is Becca's best book yet.

  1. Eeeee, awesome review, Amber!! So, so excited for my copy to arrive. Dying to jump into this - even more so now. Yours is the first review I've read so far and I'm definitely happy to hear it lives up to expectations. The action, the character growth and PATCH. Oh how I love that sexy winged bad boy <3

    Nora loses her memories?! Oh noes! I sense difficult times ahead.
