Publisher's Summary

In the New York Times best-selling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy's bond with the pack - and her mate - is broken, she'll learn what it truly means to be alone....

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form Mercy escapes - only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe.

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise....

    "Seriously, why?"
    Would you listen to Silence Fallen again? Why?

    Probably, but it is not the same.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I am just echoing what others have stated. Why did they add the male narrator? Lorelei's got this. Her male voices were perfect. The male narrator is okay, I think I would enjoy his reading of something I am unfamiliar with, but....I miss my guys. They sound all wrong now.


    Any additional comments?

    Mercy is as great as always, but the change up was very distracting.

    Story
    "I LIKED it! Didn't Love it."

    I enjoyed this book, but only the bits narrated by Lorelei King. Nothing is wrong with George Newbern, but when you listen to Lorelei King narrating 9 books of this series, it is really really annoying when they bring someone else to narrate half of the book in a different way than to what we are used to. I would like to ask Audible and Patricia Briggs to re do this book and just let Lorelei King do what she does best. Bringing Mercy and her pack to life.

    Story was good, but different, I didn't hate it , but didn't love it either. It is a good addition to the series but not my favourite one.

    "Loved the story!"

    WHY... a male narrator for Adam's view point? He's so stiff and can't do an accent. I missed Lorelei King's voices for those characters. Adam, Ben, Stephen, ex... Please don't do that with the next book.

    "Completely agree with the "Why Ruin a Good Thing""

    I cannot tell you how difficult it is for me to wait on the next Mercy Thompson book. I basically listen to other books just to bide time in waiting for the next release. Lorelei King has done a FABULOUS job in the past with these books, and the voices. I agree with all of the prior reviewers. Why would you ruin a good thing. The new narration ruined the book for me. I will admit, I am hooked on the world of Mercy, her life , and the characters. I will anxiously await the next book--I hope the next release will go back to the single reader with Lorelei King.

    "Why ruin a good thing"
    Would you listen to Silence Fallen again? Why?

    I would not listen to Silence Fallen again as they added a male narrator with no personality. It just ruined the whole book. After 10 books Lorelei King had the characters down with accents and individuality.

    "BAD PENGUIN."


    I'm really bummed that, after just re-listening to the first 10 Mercy Thompson books, and LOVING them, I find myself listening to this painful, POS production.

    P. Briggs wrote this one with alternating POV chapters -- so, I guess that's why they added George Newbern, (a reader who does mainly nonfiction how-to books).

    Yeah, that worked out about as well as you'd expect.

    It's pretty obvious that George doesn't understand this series, this genre, or the characters and their relationships -- or even how to read well. The hesitations, pauses and flailing attempts at finding the right emotional tone, make his weirdly dissonant performance jarring, and completely ruins the flow of this book.

    And this is especially painful when followed by the chapters read by Lorelei King, the narrator who has depicted these characters for over 86 fabulous hours of audio, to the delight of P. Briggs' fans.

    By comparison, any guy would have had a tough act to follow, but George Newburn sounds completely out of his depth.


    BAD Penguin.

    "Male narrator is terrible!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe.. Take this review with a grain of salt. I am a huuuuge fan of this series and of the world Patricia Briggs has built. Lorelei King has been a integral part of bringing this world to life. Unfortunately, she is not the only narrator for the story in this book. The male narrator takes over in chapter 2 with a voice that is stiff and robotic. I want to hear Lorelei King's voice narrating Adam, Darrel and Ben!! Why break something that was working so well?!

    "Male narrator is horrible."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    YES...stay with Lorelei King ONLY. It doesn't even tell you there is more than one narrator . This has ruined a series I really love. When you are dealing with audio books...the narrator can make or break it.
    I found this a difficult book as it jumps around. I stopped listening to it as I hate the narrator (male)


    What aspect of Lorelei King’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing. Lorelei King is perfect. She has read all the other books. Her part in this book was fine. Adding a male narrator ruined it

    Story
    "The best one yet!!!"
    What did you love best about Silence Fallen?

    Where to start? I love the humor in this one, the two points of view, all of the twists and turns, and it is another Mercy book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy and Adam always rank as favorite main characters in this series for me, but this book has so many supporting characters that are awesome it really is hard to pick just one. So many new characters to add the original cast of characters. I really liked Larry and Will. Can't wait to see more of them. LOL


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her ability to put humor in a story and make you feel it so intensely you end up smiling or laughing along with the characters. I have many of her books, and while I love a couple of other female narrators, Lorelei is probably my all time favorite.


    Any additional comments?

    The timeline part of this book kept me on my toes a bit, but it works for the story and seemed to draw me into the story more than others. Great style of writing as far as I am concerned. The notes at the beginning of each chapter by Mercy helps keep you on track. I enjoyed it so much, I am now on my second time through it.

    Story
    "Well, They Do Say Change Isn't Easy....."


    ....And adjusting isn't any easier .... but I will say, once I got used to the dual POV's and the male narrator (which I was totally unprepared for), I really did enjoy the story.....actually, the story's great!

    I've always liked Mercy's character, but for a long time I've been wanting to hear and see things from others POVs, especially Adam's. Now that I've got my wish.......I'm not entirely sure the dual POV's, and male narrator was the right choice this late in the series. I could see this working perfectly if this was a Mercy Thompson spin off.

    As far as the narration, I'm not going to bash the male narrator. It's just a fact, Lorelei King has done a phenomenal job with the narration. She's given each character their own voice, and has been consistent with them throughout the entire series. Both her female and male characters are awesome, and you know who's speaking just from the voice. She truly is a hard act to follow. Overall, I thought George did a great job, but his character's voices were just so different from what I was used to listening too, but I did adjust. The only thing I wished he did slightly different, was the voice for the wolf. I would have loved for the wolf to have sounded more animalistic. If there's another book in the series, and George is brave enough to accept narrating the male POV (if there is one), I would certainly buy the audio...at the very least I will be more prepared.

    Briggs, while we are talking about change, you have done such an awesome job creating a unique world full of shifters, fae, vampires etc, but I would love to see a spin off with the vampires. However, this was a great addition to the series.
