Review: The Silent

Book Review: The Silent, by Elizabeth Hunter


They are called kareshta, the silent ones.
But the silent are waking.
Kyra has lived her life in the shadow of a powerful Grigori brother. She's ignored her own desires for the good of her family, but an unexpected request from Thailand sends her on a mission that could change her life and alter the fate of free Grigori all over the world. Sons of the Fallen hidden in the mountains of Thailand have adapted an ancient human magic for their own purposes. Will this practice bring peace or lead to even greater danger for the Irin race?
A simple diplomatic mission sends Leo to Bangkok, but he didn't expect to see a familiar face in surveillance photographs. He's tried everything to drive Kyra from his mind, since he was convinced the gentle kareshta wanted to hide from the world. How did she turn up halfway across the globe, living with Grigori who may or may not be Irin allies?
Leo has bided his time. He's given Kyra her space.
But this scribe is ready to hear a kareshta sing.

Genre: paranormal

Publication date: July 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: Loved it. It started out a bit slow, in my opinion, but then picked up the pace and became one of those books you just can't stop reading. Leo is a wonderful character. Kyra is a slightly harder to like, but in the end it's just the way she is. Together they seem to make a great team and the way love grows between them is throughly sweet.

Two warnings, though. First, The Silent has a higher sexual content than some of the other books, especially the first ones. And second, it's not a book to be read stand alone. But then, the whole series is so good - why would you want to miss any of the other books anyway?

The Silent is book 5 in the Irin Chronicles series. You can read my reviews of the first three books (The Scribe, The Singer and The Secret) here and my review of book 4 (The Staff and the Blade) here

Overall, The Silent is a great addition to the series and I recommend it. Lovely cover too
Happy readings,
