 “It began in the graveyard. Ever since her boyfriend Nathan died in a tragic accident Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there—Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death."

 My Thoughts

This book was one of those books you had to hurry up and read because you needed to see where it was going to go. Throughout the whole book you get little bits of info about Emma and her new abilities but you always wanted more. It kept me up reading it until I reached the very end.

I think Emma was a very strong character. I really liked her and I loved the decisions she made. She has had a lot of heartache in her life but she really seems to have it all under control. She is always there for people and is always putting others above herself. She just had a lot of qualities I liked.

Emma's life was pretty routine until the night she met Eric in the graveyard. But now there is this open door and if she doesn't ignore it (or should I say the ghosts, Eric might have to kill her)

I am sad that the only kiss in this book was with a dead creepy old women, but I guess that is okay. I mean I really really liked Eric and was totally hoping something would develop there. So hopefully in the next book we can see some of that?lol

Silence was beautifully written story and it kept me totally intrigued. It had a different vibe them a lot of other books and though Emma does see ghosts its not like anything I have read before. Its not totally creepy either, which from some ghosts stories you would expect.

I can't wait to see what happens next. While we learned a lot in this book there is so much more I want to know. Especially involving Eric and Chase, what exactly are they and who trains and finds them and why do they kill people like Emma? Plus I would love to see Eric and Emma get Sorry but I would.
