Nora Grey can’t remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been inexplicably missing for weeks, she tries to get her life back on track. So she goes to school, hangs with her best friend, Vee, and dodges her mom’s creepy new boyfriend.

But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows. And an unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, with whom she feels a mesmerizing connection. He seems to hold all the answers...and her heart. Every minute she spends with him feels more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.

This paperback edition features exclusive bonus content and enticingly sets the stage for the series conclusion, Finale.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Nora Grey and fallen angel Patch have gotten through, bridging the chasm of their seemingly irreconcilable worlds, but though now united, they are as now imperiled as ever, obliged to fight an arch-villain who can take everything from them, including each other.

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Poor Nora Grey wakes up in a cemetery with no memory of how she got there or why. Next she learns that she has been shot, kidnapped and that someone close to her is the enemy. She feels overwhelmed and lost at the same time, but then she starts to remember, and her world now holds the supernatural element as well that which haunts her sleep. The pieces of her life need to quickly get in place before everyone she loves ends up in danger and possibly dead. From the cover, I thought this book would read like another werewolf or vampire type book that seems to be flooding the market, but I discovered a different supernatural genre instead that uses action and drama to compel the reader to keep turning the pages as Nora's memory comes back. The excitement builds until the end as the climax stalls and then plummets to the bottom like a steep rollercoaster. While refreshing and entertaining, the subject matter does get a little raunchy for young readers. This is the third book in the "Hush Hush" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker

Biography

Becca Fitzpatrick grew up reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden with a flashlight under the covers. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. When not writing, she's most likely prowling sale racks for reject shoes, running, or watching crime dramas on TV. Her first novel, the YA thriller Hush, Hush, was published in 2009.

Good To Know

Some fascinating outtakes from our interview with Becca Fitzpatrick:

  • "My first job entailed spending a summer working in a cornfield in Nebraska. I remember three things about the job: scorching heat, bugs (oh, the bugs!) and playing volleyball during lunch break. My job description included wandering up and down endless rows of corn and sticking small paper envelopes over the immature ears of corn so that they wouldn't become pollinated by the pollen floating around in the air. I think the company I worked for was trying to create hybrid corn to feed cattle, but when I needed a snack, I ate the corn. It was actually pretty good. Every day at lunch, the entire crew would play volleyball for about an hour (two or three when our bosses were out of town). Most of the crew was comprised of guys, which, as you can imagine, I didn't mind one bit. Other than the low pay, it was actually a great job. I could wear my swimsuit and listen to music on my Walkman (I'm showing my age here). My older sister, Heather, worked with me and every day at the end of our shift, we'd stop by McDonald's and buy ice cream cones -- thirty nine cents each. Good times! "

  • "My most noticeable physical trait is, hands down, my hair. It's big, unruly and curly, and you can spot it from a mile away...literally. Six years after I graduated high school in Idaho, I was visiting my husband's family and attending church two thousand miles away in Rhode Island, when a girl came running up to me after the service. She'd gone to high school with me, and said she recognized me from the back based on my hair alone.

    Growing up, I detested my hair. I spent at least an hour every day straightening it, wishing I could make it blend into the crowd, cursing it for being so different. It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I started to appreciate its uniqueness. Different no longer has a negative connotation to me."

  • "I should probably confess that ice cream is my favorite food, and I eat it every night. When I go grocery shopping, I try to buy a new flavor, rather than reverting back to a favorite flavor. I'm on a mission to taste every flavor of ice cream out there! But I will say I have a soft spot in my heart for Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch, Coldstone Creamery's Peanut Butter Cup Perfection and The Pie Who Loved Me, and St. Clair's Banana Nut."

  • "After a long day, my favorite way to unwind is by going running. Not exactly the most relaxing activity, granted, but I always imagine I'm sweating out all the things weighing on my mind. By the time I circle back home, I feel like I've left my cares in the dust. I live in Colorado, and we have some amazing running trails and beautiful scenery. It can be very relaxing and energizing to get out and hit the trails. Of course, I always reward myself with a bowl of ice cream when I finish!"

    <;i>"Writing can be a very solitary profession, and when deadlines are looming, it's tempting to glue myself to my desk, but I try to make sure I get out a few times a month with friends, just so I don't forget what it means to be social. I always look forward to book club, which is made up of my very closest friends in the world. We always meet at a local restaurant or café, order drinks, dinner or dessert, and chat about our book selection. We've had some great discussions over The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Uglies by Scott Westerfield and Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The books are a catalyst for discussing what's going on in our personal lives, so while it sometimes feels like I get wrapped up in work, I always know I'll get to catch up with everyone at book club."

    Reading Group Guide

    A Reading Group Guide to Silence By Becca Fitzpatrick

    When Nora wakes up in the middle of a graveyard, she doesn't know how much her life is about to change. As a matter of fact . . . she doesn't know much of anything. She doesn't remember a single thing about the past five months, including the fact that she's been missing—kidnapped—for eleven weeks. Her mom and Vee are happy to have Nora home, but they also seem to be hiding something from her. How much do they know? How much will Nora eventually remember? And why does that brooding dark-haired boy with mysterious skills seem so familiar?

    Discussion Questions

    • How does being kidnapped change the way that Nora is treated by her family and friends? In what ways does her kidnapping change how Nora feels? Are there any similarities between her postkidnapping frame of mind and how she felt in the previous books when she was firmly entrenched in the Nephilim struggles?
    • In Chapter 10, Nora says of her amnesia that "ignorance was the lowest form of humiliation and suffering." Do you agree with this assessment? Are there any benefits to her amnesia? Does the fact that she eventually learns what has happened to her put Nora in a better position?
    • Why do most of the people who know about Nora's past not tell her about it? Are their reasons valid, particularly in light of everything that Hank Millar is doing? Who does talk to Nora about her past, and why?
    • How is Nora's relationship with Scott different now than it was before she was kidnapped? Why is she so quick to believe his tales of Nephilim and fallen angels? Do you think she would have been more skeptical of him if someone else had helped her fill in the gaps in her memory?
    • The vagabond at the cemetery wants to collect a reward for finding Nora. Is he the only one who hopes to gain something from his association with her? Have there been other occasions in her life where Nora was considered a "reward" by someone? Are there times where she uses other people, instead of always being used by them?
    • Hank Millar believes that he is fighting for justice—hence his creed, "Justice before mercy," and the variations on his "Black Hand" nickname. Do you think there is any justice involved in what he's doing? Do his ends ever justify his means? Can you think of other ways that he might have gone about getting justice for the Nephilim?
    • Why doesn't Scott want to wear the Black Hand's ring? What makes him decide to put it on and not take it off? Does Nora's opinion of the ring change over the course of the book?
    • Nora decides to tell her mom and Vee all about the Nephilim and what has happened to her over the past months. Do you think this will help her situation? Will they be more or less safe once they know everything? Would they have believed her if she'd told them earlier?
    • Does Nora have any choice but to swear the oath that turns her into a Nephilim? What reasons does she have for not swearing the oath? Are there any benefits to her becoming a Nephilim?
    • Why does Patch agree to let Nora take the lead in the final confrontation with Hank? Which of them was more wronged by Hank? Does anyone else have a reason to want to see Hank brought to justice?
    • If Hank hadn't had Patch's wing feather, Nora would have let him live. Why didn't she want to kill him? Do you think Hank would rather live or die?

    Activities

    • Nora's amnesia leaves her with no memory of key events in her life, and she must rely on others to fill in the gaps. Ask a family member or one of your friends to describe an event in your life that you shared with them. Did you learn anything new or get a different perspective from hearing their version?
    • Everyone thinks that Nora was abducted by a stranger. What can you do to help keep yourself or the children in your community safe? Find a self-defense class in your town that will teach you how to protect yourself. Is there any sort of "stranger danger" training in the elementary schools in your area where you can volunteer?
    • The Nephilim and the fallen angels swear a lot of oaths. Research some famous oaths from our world (the Hippocratic oath, etc.) and compare them to the oaths in the book. Write your own oath—one that pertains to your beliefs and goals.
    • Hank truly believes that he is fighting for justice for the Nephilim, and that he's doing the right thing. Is there a cause that you believe in . . . one for which you are willing to fight? Donate your time and talents to this cause.
    • Nora has some important decisions to make about the upcoming battle and whether or not she will lead the Nephilim army. What do you think she should do? Write a short story that explains what Nora's next steps are.
    • Marcie spends much of the book trying to find Patch's necklace for Hank. Do you think that Patch's necklace suits him? Draw your own version of an archangel necklace, one that portrays your personality.
    • Nora gets a blood transfusion against her will, but many people need blood transfusions in order to save their lives. Ensure that there's enough blood for people in crisis by donating a pint today.
    • Hank, Gabe, and even Patch use mind tricks to change the way people think and ultimately get their way. Hypnotism is the closest thing we have to these mind tricks—read a book about hypnotism and see how it works. Can you learn how to hypnotize people?

      Wasn't awful.

      I wanted SO badly to love this book. Crescendo, the second book in the series, ended on a note that left me and everybody else hanging on the edge of our seats. There was so much potential for this book, but I had a very difficult time really getting into it. It took me a few hours each to read the first two books in the series, but it took me almost three days to read Silence. For a while, I wasn't sure why. Then I figured it out.


      First of all, all we do throughout this book is basically re-learn all the information we were given in the first book, Hush, Hush. Some of the character's in Nora's life were obviously keeping things from her, but she didn't know what exactly they were hiding. The problem: The readers DO know. Nora spends almost the entire books trying to unravel information and events that we already know.


      Second of all, I was more than halfway through the book and Patch had only come into the picture TWICE. I'm not sure if Becca Fitzpatrick was trying to prove that the books would be good even without Patch, but I found myself looking ahead to figure out when was the next time Patch would come in. Because while he is not the biggest part of this story, he is HOT and us fangirls want to see A LOT of him.


      Now, in the two books preceding this, I never really had that much of a problem with Nora. A lot of people did, but I didn't mind her that much. But in Silence I swear she got even more stupid, self-centered, and whiny. Seriously, most of her thoughts throughout the novel consisted of, "Omg. My life sucks. I can't remember anything. Wah wah wah." I mean, I can understand that you'd obviously be upset about losing your memory, but we didn't need to be reminded every thirty seconds. To make matters worse, Nora didn't really think of anyone other than herself. Sure, she helped Scott a few times and worried about her mother. But she snuck out anyway, knowing that if her mother found out she would probably have a heart attack. She was so wrapped up in her own self-pity that she forgot to warn Scott about a few VERY important things. And when she figured out that Vee and her mother were hiding things from her it was all, "How could they do this to me? Blah blah blah." Like maybe they didn't care about her or have a very good reason for omitting information.


      Nora reminded me of the girl that when you're watching a scary movie, you're thinking, "Yeah, that's smart. Go upstairs and hide in a closet where there is absolutely no room for escape." Despite everything, she continuously made stupid decisions. She claims to love Patch, but she can't obey ANYTHING he freaking tells her to do. He asks her to stay in a house for a little while, and she goes out to assist a guy with a major target over his head. There were several times throughout this novel when I actually said out loud, "Oh my god. Why are you so dumb!?"


      Having said all that, Becca Fitzpatrick is very good with a story arc. Her rising and falling of action was very good.


      This book could have been condensed into a few chapters. There was only about one important event that really furthered this story, and I am extremely disappointed. I am really glad that this is not the final book in the series.

      I LOVE PATCH!!!!

      When I first read Hush,Hush I fell head over heels in love with Patch from the begining. When I finlly got my hands on Silenece I couldn't put it down. In silence you'll see a much sweeter side of our favorite bad boy. Over all an excellent book. I can't wait for the next book!Patch and Nora Forever!

      An angel loses his wings finally proving the devotion of his love

      An angel gets his wings torn off. By choice. And that's only the first couple of pages of Silence, the third book in Becca Fitzpatrick's best selling Hush, Hush series. And we're not just talking about any angel. It's Patch. The ripped abs, tousled hair celestial being beloved by fan girls (and women) everywhere. He sacrifices himself in order to rescue his human girlfriend, Nora, from the diabolical clutches of her Nephilim father, Hank. One problem. While granting her release, Hank erases five months of his daughter's memory - essentially every moment that she ever spent with Patch. That's some serious parental interference when it comes to teenage romance.

      As Nora struggles to find her way through the haze of amnesia, she begins seeing flashes of black while experiencing a rush of intense longing. She's also transported into visions of a female archangel caged in a warehouse suffering torture at the hands of Hank. Yet she only knows Hank as the father of her lifelong nemesis, Marcie and now the unexpected new boyfriend of her widowed mother. She doesn't want him in her life, and now she has a reason to suspect he is capable of even greater treachery. If she only knew.

      Her best friend, Vee, along with her mother, conspire to keep any reference of Patch out of Nora's life. Yet her innate yearning to connect with her soul mate allows her to find him in her dreams, and in a twist of fate, at the scene of a 7-11 robbery. As they unexpectedly come face-to-face, Nora senses he is someone who means a great deal to her. Patch provides her with the alias, Jev, and tries to fly under her radar until she is launched into a flashback by accidentally touching the wing scars on his back. Patch can't keep his true identity secret for long, no matter how much he longs to protect Nora from the corrupt bargain he made with her father. However, when Hank breaks his word by infiltrating Nora's life, all bets are off.

      Key characters make noteworthy appearances. Scott Parnell is on the run from Hank and his Nephilim army. He seeks Nora's help by climbing through her bedroom window in the middle of the night angling an invitation as her date to the upcoming homecoming dance. Detective Basso is the first to discover Nora wandering in a cemetery months after her abduction, although she faints when he approaches her. Marcie Millar is no stranger to making Nora's life a living hell, but while acting as Hank's puppet she attempts to form an alliance with Nora even taking her dress shopping.

      But in Silence, the spotlight remains on the deepening relationship of Patch and Nora. For the first time, Patch is solidly committed to making it work with Nora despite the odds. He has made the decision that she is his destiny and he will let nothing stand in the way of their love for each other. He has gone from a boy's passing interest to a man's fully developed attachment to the woman he loves. For Nora's sake, it's about time. Patch has finally realized the full breadth of his feelings for her. Her patience has paid off. While they still don't consummate their relationship by book's end, they come awfully close. While Patch is more than willing, he respects Nora's decision not to complicate her life any further after she undergoes a life-altering transformation propagated by Hank. She's not the same girl she was in Hush, Hush or Crescendo. In Silence, Nora becomes a new being altogether.

      Amazing

      The first one was AMAZYING, the 2nd one it was okay I just hate how Nora seemed to obbsess over Patch and going every where he goes. That stuff kinda got anoying. But I'm hoping this book would be great as the first one! I'm looking forward to it wish it came out sooner!

      Love Patch

      My Summary:

      Nora can¿t remember. She¿s been missing for three months but has no memory of that time. But her memory problems go even farther than that. She can¿t remember the last five months. She can¿t remember anything about who took her. She can¿t remember the Black Hand or the danger that has been her life. She can¿t remember her love for Patch. She can¿t remember Patch at all. As she re-enters her life, she¿s shocked to learn that Hank Miller is dating her mom. He scares her but she can¿t remember why. As little bits of memory flick in her mind and as she keeps encountering Jev, Nora plunges back into the Nephilim war. But Hank is two steps ahead of her at every turn. Will Nora be able to remember the past in time to save the ones she loves? Can she remember the ones she loves?


      My Thoughts:

      5 stars ¿ a must read

      I loved Hush Hush. It was my first real angel book and I fell immediately for Patch. Crescendo brought me frustration with Patch but in the end, he came through for me. Silence was started with that same frustration. There was too much of the beginning that didn¿t star Patch but as soon as he made his appearance, I was hooked.

      I really enjoy the world that Becca has created for Nora and Patch. I like the lore that goes with the fallen angels and Nephilim. It¿s complex enough to hold my interest without being too overwhelming to keep up with. With the twist in this book, I¿m interested to see how Becca draws this to a conclusion.

      Of course, I love the characters. Patch is by far my favorite. He is so clearly devoted to Nora in this book that I wanted to smack her a couple of times for even considering doubting him. With her developments in this book, I wonder how their relationship will change. I wonder a lot of things at the end of another cliff hanger ending. I will admit it¿s not as bad a Crescendo but it still leaves everything up in the air, again. I think I have come to accept that authors are going to do this to readers. How else can they expect us to grab up the next book as soon as possible. And I will be picking up the next book as soon as possible. You should pick this one up too ¿ as soon as possible. It¿s fabulous.

      An edge-of-your-seater

      "Silence" is an edge-of-your-seater loaded with suspense, action and is a great love story. I loved the peek behind the big, bad man to see the real deal. It ended with an unexpected twist with a cliffhanger but all the major points of contention are wrapped up nicely. I really enjoyed it and recommend highly.

      I loved the first two books so much i couldnt wait for this one! But i was really dissappointed! Nora's memory loss was just so annoying! I felt as if it made the other two books seem pointless, because she didnt know enything there for the whole book was basically her whining about how she couldnt remember and everyone felt sorry for her, even Hanks plan to start a war wasnt that interesting? And at the end i was left woundering " is there going to be another book? And if so is it ganna be as bad as this one?" Personally i think your fine just reading the first two!

      Excellent!!

      Ms. Fitzpatrick does it again!! Silence had me up late a night wondering where Nora and Patch would go!! I highly recommend this book to anyone of all ages. I would have to say that reading the first two installments is a must. I had to reread the others to catch up since the release dates are so far apart. Pick this book up it will not disappoint you in anyway!!

      Read it!

      PATCH! Just had to say his name :D The book was an exceptional read that kept me hooked till the very end. Nora's amnesia really ticked me off at times... it hurt that she totally forgot who Patch was! Well, not totally... but it still hurt. I did enjoy the parts where Nora and Scott, the playful yet arrogant Nephil, had secret meetings. I thought their somewhat "flirtatious" banter was cute, and I really liked Scott in this book. Anyways, read it! Next book comes out fall 2012

      Ugh im gonna die!!!!

      I swear to god im gonna die if the author doesnt publish the book soon. I looked it up and unfortunately,the book comes out on OCTOBER. Freaking October. The author is clearly trying to torture her readers because if i dont find out wat happens in the end soon, i will personally find Bella Fitzpatricks adress and steal her copy of the next book. Im pretty sure this is one of the best series ive read since the hunger games. I AM IN LOVE WITH PATCH. He is like the awesomest dude ever. Makes you believe in love again. Guys need to act more like Patch. Just saying. ;)

      A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED...

      I was expecting this book to top the firsst two, but sadly my expactions were not met to standards. Basically "Silence" consist of re-learning what you should already know from the first two books. That was a great portion of the book, but the problem is the readers already know ALL of this stuff, so i found myself skipping altleast 3 chapters of pointless writing. Over al the book was OK but it could have been a whole lot better... I can feel this series will fall downward and i really enjoyed this series :( Oh well.

      love it.

      I got this last night and couldn't put it down. I looked at my clock and was surprised it was 3AM! If you loved or even like the first book you must read.
