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.
Silence takes place months after the end of Crescendo, which begs the question 'What has happened?'. Nora's memory is gone and she doesn't remember anything from when she met Patch, including Patch himself.
It broke my heart that she couldn't remember Patch, especially after all they went through together. Fitzpatrick had me gripped from page one and I couldn't put it down. I ended up finishing it in a matter of hours.
Nora grows a lot in this book as she attempts to find out the reason behind her memory loss. It's a far cry from her attitude in Crescendo and I was very pleased with how much she grew in Silence.
Patch now goes by his real name. He says that he hasn't called himself Patch since Nora was taken at the end of Crescendo. Patch remains one of my absolute favourite YA boys EVER! We got to see a softer side of him in Silence, a side we have only vaguely seen in Hush, Hush and Crescendo.
There are quite a few twists in the book that keep it lively. It is very well paced and the world that Fitzpatrick showed us in the first two is shown even more in this one.
I adore this series, but the downside is I have to wait for the fourth book to see the last part of Nora and Patch's story. (I might just cry.)
