Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

Published: October 2011
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing
Pages: 438
Copy Provided by: Borrowed
Summary: Goodreads


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.

I got my paws on this little morsel last week.  Lucky to be able to borrow it from a special source.  I took every opportunity to read that I the car...waiting for water to boil for my tea....before bed...Ms. Fitzpatrick does it again with this one.  I finished up Crescendo just recently and timed it right to get my hands on Silence before I started forgetting the details of the story.  

Like Crescendo, Silence provides the reader with a fast paced, action-packed episode of Patch/Jev and Nora.  Gone are those feelings of angst in the last book where Nora questioned Patch's feelings for her or Marcie.  This time around, she needs to figure out what her feelings are for him after her memory has been wiped.  

By the way, I loved this video depicting an artist's recreation of Crescendo's cover - 

I enjoyed this read immensely and was happily surprised to see that the Hush Hush trilogy is actually not a trilogy at all. There were will a fourth book.  I love the dynamics between Nora and Jev!  In Silence, something big happens at the end of the book which changes Nora and makes her character all the more special.  Having Jev as a fallen angel to protect her has been pretty sweet but now maybe she will be able to take care of the book and find out.  I was happily surprised by the ending and from this point on, Becca can take this plot forward with several more books!

I just found out that Hush Hush will be released as a graphic novel this fall (sometime in November?)  Cool!!

Quote from page 274 - 
"I missed you Angel.  Not one day went by that I didn't feel you missing from my life.  You haunted me to the point that I began  to believe Hank had gone back on his oath and killed you.  I saw your ghost in everything.  I couldn't escape you and I didn't want to. You tortured me, but it was better than losing you."

With lines like this, who wouldn't want a Patch/Jev of their own? 

Now my only question is...where can I get me a fallen angel??
