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.

Silence is a read I’ve been anxiously away since I finished reading Crescendo last year. I’ll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible! If you haven’t read the other books in this series, you definitely should!

If you have read the series, you will know that the main character in the story in Nora. I have always really liked Nora since the first book. She did frustrate me at times in Silence, she didn’t always make the best decision about things. I know that the story wouldn’t have been the same if she hadn’t made the decisions she made, but it was still frustrating. Otherwise, I still enjoyed her character.

Patch is definitely the best part of the book for me. Unfortunately, we don’t see much of him during the first half of the book. I kept waiting and waiting for him to show up more, but we don’t see a lot of him until the second half of the book. Patch is so awesome; I really just love his character. I love the way he treats Nora. Oh my gosh, he’s so swoon-worthy!

The secondary characters were pretty so-so for me. I didn’t care for Vee in the first book, but she grew on me in the second book. She didn’t really make much of an impression on me after reading this book. Hank, who we met in the second book, was a great villain, he was so evil!

Mrs. Fitzpatrick did a really great job with the storyline for this book. It definitely had it all; action, suspense, romance. I was completely hooked throughout the book, and I was a bit sad that I finished it so quickly.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book! I am so glad to hear that there’s going to be a fourth book in the series. Bring It On!

Happy Reading!


  1. I'm really looking forward to reading Silence but I MUST read the entire series before reading the last book LOL it's just this thing I do, so must read Hush, Hush and Crescendo before Silence LOL.

  2. Sounds good :) I cant wait to read this one!

  3. *SWOONS* YES. PATCH. I loved him even more in Silence.... oh sigh. He's such a yummy mix of bad boy and heart <3 And mmm, he looks good in those black jeans :D Ugh, yes, Hank was a total ass!

    So happy you enjoyed this, I'm excited for where book four is headed. Awesome review!

  4. I am glad you enjoyed this. I had been reading mixed reviews, so this makes me happy.

    Sigh..Patch. He really is awesome! Sounds like there are some swoon worthy moments in this book.

    I am glad that there is a fourth book in this series too. I am guessing that this ends on some form of cliffhanger though.

    Great review!

  5. I haven't started this series yet. I'm starting to think I should soon. I love angel stories!

  6. Excellent review! Glad to see you enjoyed Silence, too!

  7. I've been eagerly awaiting this one after the ending of Crescendo! I have to say Patch and Nora drove me a little crazy with their angst and their games in Crescendo, so I'm glad to hear Patch treats Nora well in this one:) Can't wait to read!

  8. Great review, Christy!
    I still need to read Crescendo and haven't done that yet, because I wanted to know whether the series ended good or not before ruining my love for Hush, Hush. But now that there's going to be a fourth book, I'm not so sure whether I want to wait this long. Maybe I'll pick book 2 & 3 up soon.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion,

  9. I'm a bit disenchanted with this series, but even I can't deny the drawl.

  10. I am so excited for Silence! I have really enjoyed the series so far and especially Patch. I can't wait to see what happens and your review reminded me that I need to get my hands on a copy! I can't believe you had to wait till the second half of the book for Patch!?! That's going to drive me nuts! Great review!

  11. I was surprised by this book. I didn't love the start of it because nothing was really happening and there was so little of Patch, but when he came back he was better than ever and of course the action just kept on coming. Great review.

  12. I was not a huge fan of Patch in the first book and haven't read the second. Maybe I should give it another try, especially if Patch turned awesome!

  13. I'm sad that Patch didn't show up till the last half! Oh well. I have bouts of annoyance with Nora, too. I hope I like this one!

    Thanks for the review!!

  14. I haven't read this series, but it seems like EVERYONE has! Thanks for the review!

  15. I have so got to start Crescendo so that I can get to Silence. After reading some really mixed reviews, I'm glad to see a positive one! Great to see that Patch is his normal swoon-worthy self. ;)
