The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and 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.

It's been so long since I read Hush, Hush that I'd forgotten why I liked it so much more than Twilight. Now that I've read Silence I remember that it's because even though the story lines are identical, the writing is SO much better.
I can't remember anything at all about the angels/Nephil history so all of that went straight over my head. I do remember not really understanding how it all worked, and I still don't think I really understand it at the end of Silence.
However, in the end this didn't really matter to my level of enjoyment of the book. It was full of action, it was fast paced and it was incredibly engaging. I didn't find Nora or Vee anywhere near as annoying as they were in the last two books and I can even see that Nora is slowly but surely maturing as a character. (See that SMeyer, how it makes the stories BETTER???) I was actually quite surprised how invested I was in the storyline, even though I wasn't really all that invested in the characters. Though I do admit that by a fifth of the way through the book I was once again GAGA for Patch.
