Where Silence Gathers (Some Quiet Place #2)
by Kelsey Sutton
What is it about:
For as long as she can remember, Alexandra Tate has been able to see personified Emotions, and she's found a best friend in Revenge. He's her constant companion as she waits outside Nate Foster's house, clutching a gun. Every night since Nate's release from prison, Alex has tried to work up the courage to exact her own justice on him for the drunk driving accident that killed her family.
But there's one problem: Forgiveness. When he appears, Alex is faced with a choice—moving on or getting even. It's impossible to decide with Forgiveness whispering in one ear . . . and Revenge whispering in the other.
What did I think of it:
I fell in love with Some Quiet Place so had to get my trotters on this book, which is not so much the sequel as a companion novel.
And this book is just as beautiful. I was engrossed in the story from the start. Sutton has a beautiful writing style that helps set the atmosphere of this story.
I really could understand how Alex can't let go of her grief, and her hate for the man who she hold responsible for the death of her family. When Forgiveness shows up Alex is forced to look closer at her own feelings and even to look into her past.
The story is not only about choosing revenge or forgiveness. It's about how you deal with life in total, with friends and family, and it's about Alex discovering why she is different and how that has shaped her life.
I've had a hard time concentrating on reading lately, but once I started on this book I was so eager to find out what choice Alex would make, what secrets she would uncover, that I finished this book in a day. You bet this one goes on my keeper shelves, right next to its companion.
Why should you read it:
It's a beautiful and touching Paranormal YA read.
