Synopsis: Nora Grey can’t remember the past five month of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been missing for weeks – with no one knowing where she was or who she was with – she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge mom’s creepy new boyfriend.But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows.And this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to. He seems to hold all the answers…and her heart. Every minute she spends with him grows more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.
I have really enjoyed the Hush Hush series so far and I think this one was just as good as the rest. Silence is set five months after Crescendo. Nora was kidnapped and she doesn’t remember a thing. She doesn’t remember a month before she went missing either. Everyone is giving her the version of the past that they want her to believe. Then Nora meets a gorgeous ‘stranger’ who of course is not a stranger but Nora doesn’t know that. At times I got annoyed at the amount Nora didn’t remember. She didn’t know who kidnapped her – we did – she didn’t know who Jev was – we did. It just got very frustrating.
I found Nora annoying, as always. The way she act’s is just so… ugh. I don’t know how everyone puts up with her. She is even more irritating without memory. Patch wasn’t as awesome as I remember him and he had times when I was just wanting him to tell her everything but aparently he wanted to keep her in the dark ‘for her own good’. I hear those words in litrally every book I read and it annoys me every time. Why did you lie to me? For your own good. Why wont you let me go? For your own good! Ugh. It really gets on my nerves. I liked Scott a lot more than in the other book and he was the only one who would actually be honest with Nora so for that he gets a big thumbs up!
Overall the book was okay. Not one of my favorites but at the same time I did enjoy it. The pace was slower than I would have liked but it wasn’t too bad. I would recomend this book to people who have enjoyed the rest and like a good angel book. To be fair this series was my first GOOD angel book with the others failing miserably beside it. A good read.
My Favorite Quote:
“He inclined his head at my dress. “What’s the occasion?”
“Homecoming,” I said, twirling. “Like?”
“Last I heard, Homecoming requires a date.”
“About that,” I hedged. “I’m sort of…going with Scott. We both figure a high-school dance is the last place Hank will be patrolling.”
Patch smiled, but it was tight. “I take that back. If Hank wants to shoot Scott, he has my blessing.”
