Title: Silenced
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2017


Haunted by a photographic memory, I couldn’t escape the worst night of my life.
The blood they shed.
The pain they endured.
The evil that still walked free.
It was all I saw. Those memories, my childhood—the images.

Silenced and scarred.

But nothing lasts forever.
Torment turned to blinding rage. Hate sought revenge, which pursued death.
Then there was life.
The moon.
Rylee Anderson.

I had to choose...

Silenced is the heart-wrenching story of Killian, who's life was changed the night he saw his parents murdered. The same night he stopped talking and walked away with scars on his face. He was moved in with his aunt when no other family could take care of him and that's when his life changed yet again. When he met Rylee.
"If I could, I’d steal the moon from the sky. I’d still the earth and keep it from turning into day. I’d stay here with you, taking to you, listening to you…kissing you."

The story progresses from when Killian and Rylee are young and then skips five years after they turn 18 and have a bit of a falling out. I liked that we got to see their relationship prgress from childhood friends to more and it was really intriguing to read. I honeslty don't think I've ever read a book that was that involved in the main characters' younger years, but I'm a fan of how this author did that.

I do have to say though, the book lost my interest just a little after that time jump when I was trying to pick back up with the characters and their lived. Though for Killian, his character wasn't much different. 

I don't want to say too much about this book because I feel like it's something best experienced without too much prior knowledge of what's to come. What I will say is that I think if you can handle a little darkness, then this is a story you really need to pick up. It was captivatingly haunting to watch these character grow together in the wake of destruction and I'm so glad I got to experience their story.
