I’m not entirely sure why.. But I didn’t like this book nearly as much as I liked Hush Hush. They always say that the 2nd book in a series is the worst. Nora was so damn annoying throughout the book. It felt like the whole story was just condensed in the last chapter. A lot of stuff connected to the mythology wasn’t… clear. The whole thing felt dark and vague and confusing. I really hope Silence is better than this one. I’m not utterly sure about the rating, the feels are all over the place.
Nora Grey’s life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn’t pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He’s more elusive than ever (if that’s possible) and what’s worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora’s archenemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn’t been acting so distant. Even with Scott’s totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him – despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren’t enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything – and everyone – she trusts.
