Book & Author Details:
Echoes of Silence (Unquiet Mind #1) by Anne Malcom
Publication date: July 17th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
People make love seem complicated. Intricate. Novels try to capture its intensity; music tries to rein in its soul.
I’ve read every novel I could. I’ve lived and breathed every song that I could listen to. The sounds fill my unquiet mind.
Then he came.
He brought with him the beauty of silence that echoes through my soul and showed me love isn’t complicated. It’s simple. Beautiful.
Some say love at first sight doesn’t exist, that you can’t find your soul mate at sixteen years old. Those are people rooted in reality, chained to the confines of life that dictates how you are meant to think. Killian broke those chains. He broke everything, shattered it so I can see that reality is overrated, that daydreams can somehow come to life.
My life tumbled into darkness in the time after I met him, so dark I’m not sure I’ll ever see the light again. But he is always at my side. His life means he knows how to navigate the dark and he can lead me out.
I wade through the darkness with him at my side.
We’ll be together forever; I’m certain of that.
Until I’m not.
Note: This is book one of two. Killian and Lexie’s story does not end here and will be continued in a following book.
Phew! This book!
It is, I think, fair to say that Killian and Lexie didn’t always have an easy path to solidifying their relationship, and if I had one criticism it is that both (but especially Killian) often felt to be more mature than their years.
There is a depth of connection between Killian and Lexie which simply drew me in. Lexie’s naivete acts as a perfect counterpoint to Killian’s more cynical outlook, and it is easy to identify with the teen insecurity which Lexie displays.
But ultimately, this book left me with a thirst to read more of their story.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth, then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
