Description: When Silence Is All That's Left, Can The Truth Finally Be Heard?

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 missing for weeks - with no one knowing where she was or who she was with - she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge 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 this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

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

After being kidnapped and missing for three months, Nora wakes in a cemetery with not only no memory of the kidnapping but with no memory of the last five months. But that is not the only surprise, her mom is now dating Marcie's dad, Hank. But Nora can't keep out of danger for long. She keeps on encountering a mysterious stranger Jev who confirmed they knew each other but won't say how. Her mother or Vee says they don't know who Jev is.

With their parents dating Marcie is actually being nice to Nora. And claims she has a necklace that belongs to her, that this guy Patch gave to Nora. But Vee and her mother both claim they don't know a Patch. But when Nora hears his name all sorts of feelings comes to her. And of course it's not long before Scott shows up again and clues Nora back into the world of the fallen angels. And reveals to her that he believes Hank is behind the Nephilim army. Enlisting Scott's help, they are both determined to bring him down. But who is Jev and why does he keep popping up? And why does she feel a connection to him?

Unlike the first two books, my feelings stayed the same on this book. I feel like the synopsis was misleading. I really didn't feel like Nora fell in love again. Just that she got her memories back. I didn't expect Nora to find out like she did who Jev/Patch was. I was really hoping to see a love story all over again. But despite it, I still loved the book. And the ending was something I never expect. I do wish we got to see homecoming.

And I love Patch even more so. Especially his feeling towards Scott. Nice to have a laugh every now and then.

Even though my mix feelings about the book. I simply thought it was amazing. I couldn't put it down, even the second time around reading it. I can't wait to read the last book and see how everything turns out. And hopefully get answers to the lingering questions I have.

Rating: 5/5
