Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick (review copy) - WARNING! I cannot review this book without spoiling the others in the series. Read no further if you're planning on reading this series and don't want it spoiled for you.
The noise between Patch and Nora has gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past, bridged two irreconcilable worlds and 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 absolutely love this series, so I was so excited to readthis book when it arrived! And I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed!
Nora was kidnapped eleven weeks ago, and has no memory of the last three months. Nothing but the image of black and some eyes. She has to start from scratch finding out about her life before she was kidnapped, and trying to piece together what happened. Who kidnapped her? And why can't she remember?
I can't tell you much more than that, because it's just all so interlinked, and I would end up spoiling it for you. But wow! It's clever! Nora has such a hard time; she's scared, and she has to meet several people all over again, trying to piece her life back together and believe the impossible. There is also the left over story of the Black Hand from Crescendo, and everything just comes together, and, oooh, is it good!
I'm really struggling trying to figure out what I can say, and I'm finding it really difficult. Because of the previous books, the reader knows a lot more than Nora does, and we're just rooting for her to remember,to fiige things out. But even so, there's still plenty of surprises for us. There's action, danger, or mystery around every corner, and I could barely put the book down, sitting n the edge of my seat the whole time! It's just brilliant. What's also lovely is seeing Patch and Nora together. Nora doesn't remember enough, so it's almost like staring out with him for the first time, and it's just so cute the way he is with her. It really is awesome!
There really isn't much else I can say without spoiling it for you. It's fast-paced and action packed, and just brilliant! A little different from the previous novels with Nora's amnesia, but just brilliant! And the ending is just incredible! And I'm so excited for fourth and final book in the series next year! I just know it's going to be amazing!
Thanks to Simon & Schuster for sending me a review copy.
