Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
I've been saying this for awhile, and I'm going to say it again here, I LOVE Patch. I mean, look at that cover!Now that I've got that out of the way...on to the review!
Silence has upped the bar once more in the Hush, Hush series. I'm delighted to see that with each book the story is getting better and better as we delve deeper and deeper into the mess between Fallen Angels and Nephil. This book is much darker than the previous two and the desperation and struggles to keep Nora alive and safe is even greater. There is a prevalent air of mystery and darkness to this book as we see a much nastier side of the Nephil and the Black Hand. Its really helped with the progression of the story as we now see Nora and Patch in the middle of this otherworldly war and the intensity has just been amped up!
What I loved even more was that the story (for me) was truly unpredictable. Fitzpatrick has added some great action sequences, awesomely choreographed fight scenes, and some heart pounding mysteries that will keep you thinking long after your done reading. There are several instances where you're left guessing what just happened and who is responsible which drives me crazy in the best way possible. It makes you want to turn the pages even faster and get lost with the story- racing to the end to find out what's happening.
The romance in this story has also heated up. I really don't want to give too much away, but we get to see Nora and Patch's relationship rekindle into a much deeper and loving connection than ever before. I didn't think it was possible, but Patch's hotness has intensified and some of his lines just melt your heart. There's one scene in particular, in a club (just picture Patch dancing) that made me just want to swoon! I will also mention that we finally get to see into Patch's bedroom and you won't be disappointed!
I urge everyone who hasn't read this series to go and pick up the first book Hush, Hush and get to reading. I'm so excited that Silence won't be the last of Nora and Patch because the ending left a lot of room for a continuation. (I nearly died reading the last 20 pages or so!) This series is simply amazing and breath takingly romantic and will make you wish you had a fallen angel of your own. Its without question that I give Silence 5 out of 5 stars!
