The noise between Patch and Nora is gone.

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.

D, A, & P's Review:

Becca Fitzpatrick's oh-so-intense trilogy, has struck again. "Silence," the last book of the series, exceeded all of our expectations. The unpredictable turn of events keeps the reader on edge, knowing in any moment, the climax might burst out of its cocoon.

"Silence," picks up from the scene where Nora and Patch have been separated, and held in captivity. The Black Hand, who just-so happens to be Nora's biological father, wants to permanently prevent fallen angels from possessing the bodies of Nephilim during the month of Cheshvan. Patch agrees to help The Black Hand by betraying his own, in exchange for Nora's release from captivity. As previously determined, Nora can't help but be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just when you think things couldn't possibly get worse, Nora ends up in an alley with a group of fallen angels, trying to get a Nephil boy to swear an oath of fealty. Among those fallen angels, Nora later meets a mysterious, yet caring guy named Jev, who reminds her so much of someone ... she can't seem to remember.

Throughout the novel, we completely fell head over heels for Nora. Nora's attitude and actions all shouted, "I'm a girl who fights for what I want." Though her instinctive actions get her in a load of trouble, the unpredictable turn of events can't help, but leave the reader wanting more.

We’re so sad that The Hush, Hush Trilogy has come to an end. Not to say that "Silence" wasn't the best novel to end the series. In fact, we don't think Becca Fitzpatrick could've written a more perfect novel to end it with. We must admit, however, that we are anxiously waiting for her next novel to be published. As we have no doubt in our minds, that we will not be disappointed.
