Rating: 5 stars
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.
Becca Fitzpatrick has pulled out all stops in this installment in the Hush Hush Saga! Becca Fitzpatrick’s writing really grew in this book and everything just grows by leaps and bounds. Silence was the best book yet in every way, and I just couldn’t put it down.
The characters are one of my favorite things about this book – and I really loved the growth of characters I saw in Silence. In the past two books, Nora has had a bit of a whiny, helpless quality about her. In this book, she grows and becomes a strong, independent women. She was no longer going to be pushed around or left behind, and I loved that. Patch became even more of a wonderful character in this one. He was just so much more real in this one.
The plot is just brilliant. Everything was bigger and better in Silence. I was totally on board from page one, and the first section was interesting as you are piecing together things along with Nora, as she is clueless as well. The plot just grew and grew, adding more layers and twists. Nothing was in any way predictable. The book ends with the most epic ending ever, which makes it all the more cruel. I need book four NOW.I am really curious as to where the story will go now, as the stakes just got HUGE.
Silence was by far my favorite book in this series yet. I simply love Becca Fitzpatrick’s writing, and I love the growth throughout the books. The characters are just wonderful. This series is a must read, or else you will be sad to miss out on them.
