Ah, finally time after the holidays to sit down and get some reading in. And what a great start! After stalling out on three books during the holiday rush, I started Silence simply because it's due back to the library in a couple days. Thankfully, it drew me in right away and got me back into that reading groove.
It had been awhile since I'd read the first two books in the Hush, Hush series so I couldn't quite recall what was going on with the plot. That turned out to be an okay thing because the book starts with Nora having acquired amnesia. I got to refigure out the plot with her, which was actually pretty cool. Nora spends a good chunk of the book trying to refigure out her place with the fallen angels and nephilim.
The only thing missing from the book was the homecoming dance. (MINOR PLOT SPOILER ALERT!) Nora got nominated for the homecoming court and she even gets a dress for the dance, but we never read any more about the dance and whether or not Nora won a spot on the homecoming court. A trivial detail in the plot, I'm sure, but I still would have liked to have known.
Four stars! This was definitely a great, easy read - something I needed to sink my teeth into. If you haven't started the Hush, Hush series now would be a good time to start. The fourth and final book in the series is due out October 2012.
