Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

Simon and Schuster, 2011. ISBN: 9780857072283.
(Age: 14+) Recommended. 'The noise between Patch and Nora is 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 - 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.' Back cover.
As this is the third book I was a bit lost, but it was easy to find and follow the story. Fitzpatrick is a wonderful writer, within just a few pages I was sucked into another world. It seemed like just when I thought one thing was going to happen, another completely unexpected thing happened instead. I cannot wait to get down to the book store and buy the earlier books. The perfect book for those really long summer holidays.
