Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

Product Details
Synopsis:
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.

My thoughts:
After reading Hush, Hush and Crescendo, I fell in love with Nora and Patch. Their path has been nothing but difficult, yet they always find each other in the end. In Silence, Nora has had her memory erased, going back as far as five months, so she doesn't remember Patch. She sees glimpses of black and when she comes face to face with Patch again, she knows they have some sort of connection. But they have to pretty much start over as Nora regains her memories. And now the Black Hand, an enemy to both Nora and Patch is after them.
I loved Crescendo. It ended on a cliffhanger that made me crave Silence. The amnesia in the beginning of the book was really kind of perfect. At first I admit I thought, No way. She has to remember Patch. But really this string of events fit the story perfectly. As Nora regains her memory and has her mind blown by the things she learns, I was right there with her in awe. And the love between Nora and Patch is stronger than ever. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the Hush, Hush series.

Just for fun: What would you do if you lost five months' worth of memories? Would you track down answers like Nora, no matter how dangerous that would be?

  2. I would cry if I lost the last 5 months of memories. I learned so much about blogging. Not that I can implement it all, so I need my memory as I am doing one thing at a time.

    1. Losing part of your memory must be so difficult. I really felt for Nora.

  4. I often wondered at characters (in TV series) who suffered from amnesia and were bent on finding out how they were before the shock. What if they didn't like what they found? Why not start anew? :)

    1. I don't think I could start anew. Nora definitely couldn't either. She hunts down the answers no matter what the cost.

  5. Kelly, I loved loved loved Silence (well, the series as a whole). The entire time, I was desperate for Nora to remember cuz Patch is her Edward. haha I'm glad it turned out well, even with the funky turn of events at the end. Nice set-up for book 4.

    Ok, if I lost 5 mos of my life, despite the dangers, I'd try my hardest to remember. I'd always regret having the void of those months gone. I'd do it!

    1. I'm trying to stay on top of my reading and reviewing. It's not always easy though. Life gets in the way.

  7. That's a dicey quest. It reminds me of one of my favorite movies The Long Kiss Goodbye, starting Gena Davis and Samuel Jackson (don't judge :-) I have the strangest movie loves). Davis is living in a small town living a quiet life when her past (that she has forgotten)when it catches up with her. Of course, she was an 'asset' aka an assassin. I don't think it makes a person/life more interesting if they uncover the missing pieces.

    1. You don't think it makes a person's life more interesting? Am I reading that wrong?

  8. Great review! I can't imagine losing memories like that. I know I'd feel sorry for myself, and then I would definitely try to seek out answers and photographs in the hopes of recovering them.

  9. Sounds tragic to lose those memories, and in the book I'll bet it is. In my life I lose at least that amount daily. The senior moments have become serious. :-)

    1. LOL. Oh, Lee, for some reason, I highly doubt that. :)

  10. I'd try to recover my memories.

    I loved Hush, Hush. I've been meaning to read the rest of this series.

    1. You should read it. I think Crescendo was my favorite of the three so far. I really felt for Nora in that one.

  11. The book sounds interesting. I still have four books to read before I'm caught up. But I would definitely do everything I could to get those memories back. I get frustrated not being able to remember things from a few days ago and can't imagine losing five months of memories.
