Review - Silence by Becca FitzPatrick

Title and Author: Silence (Hush Hush 03)
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Publication Date: October 4th, 2011
Paperback/Hardcover: 438
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

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.

I’m a fan of the Hush Hush series so I couldn’t wait to read Silence. I couldn’t wait to find out if things would work out between Nora and Patch!
Silence picks up where Crescendo ended. Nora and Patch have been captured by the Black Hand. To save Nora, Patch strikes a deal and when Nora wakes up after being captured she can’t remember the last few months of her life, including Patch.
Little by little she starts to remember a few things as she fights to discover who kidnapped her and why.
All out favorite characters are back. Nora, Patch, Vee, Scott, The Black Hand… As always, you’ll like some of them and hate others. :)
I confess I like a little romance so the moments between Patch and Nora made me smile and sigh. I enjoyed reading about Nora getting to know Patch all over again and realizing there’s a lot of chemistry between them. I always like reading about this two being together. :)
There’s a lot of action in this book. You’ll be holding your breath more often than not! All the mystery and action scenes are very well written and were able to keep me entertained and curious.
All in all, Silence is a great book with some romance and a lot of action that was able to hold my attention. The book is very well-written and interesting.
It didn’t end exactly as I thought it would but that’s okay. Another book in the series is set to be published, which means more Patch! I’m sure we all can be grateful for that. :)

Rating: Somewhere between Worth Your Time and Must Read (4 ½ Stars)


  1. I am what you would call a former Hush, Hush fan because I loved the first book and disliked the second and am currently reading the third. I haven't gotten very far at the moment but I hope I like this third book almost as much as you do.

    Kind Regards,

  2. I'm glad you liked it! This series is scaring me more and more! Haha. I really liked the first one, but after hearing reviews for the 2nd and 3rd books, I'm scared to continue. ;) Well, at least the 3rd has gotten better feedback! Great review. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
