Tragic Silence by EC Hibbs review

Tragic Silence
By- E.C. Hibbs
Genre- Young Adult Paranormal

When tragedy strikes Bianka Farkas one night in her native Hungary, she loses more than a friend and her mobility. Some things are harder to understand. Waking up in a hospital, Bee struggles to remember exactly what happened the night she was attacked and witnessed a brutal murder. Memories of a mysterious figure plague her as well as bizarre and terrifying changes in her over the next few years. Facing this new horrifying reality with a surprising ally, Bee finally has the chance to take her revenge but at what cost?

Jaime's Review:

I thought this was a very different book. I def haven't read anything like it before.

Tragic Silence is about Bee's life changing from human to a vampire.
After watching someone very important to her lose her life, she comes to realize that she must try to run from
the demon who changed her. Not just physically but genetically as well.
She leaves her home town and moves to London, England and ends up with a new comradeship. One that wil help her along the way of dealing with who she is.

 Very good YA thriller and not cheezy at all! You know some thrillers can be cheezy lol.  This is more of a mind thriller. Really good! I would def recommend this book to all those that love to guess how things turn out! :)

EC Hibbs did a great job being detailed but not overly so.
This is my first one of her books I have read. I will definitely be reading more from her in the future!

Check out the trailer here!



And now an excerpt-
After a heavy slumber, my phone rang and I jolted awake. My eyes strayed to a photo of me and Lucy from two years ago resting on my bedside table. I took up the phone and glanced at the clock. It was almost one in the morning. I frowned, wondering who could be calling at this time. Then I remembered, as though I was still dreaming, that Lucy still hadn’t sent me a text. I inspected the small screen. EMILY.
            I pressed the green button. “Jó napot?”
            Emily didn’t say anything at first, but I heard her breathing: frantic and ragged. Lucy’s shock-ridden face in the cinema flashed into my mind, and I sat up, turning on the light. It threw shadows across the walls.
“Emily? Are you there?”
“Bee!” he voice finally broke through. “Did Lucy come back to your house? Is she there?”
My eyes widened. I threw back the duvet and ran into the hall. I hit the switch and the lamp exploded into life. “No, she’s not here. You mean she’s not home yet? It’s one o’ clock!”
“No!” Emily cried. “No, she isn’t! Dad went to pick her up and she wasn’t there. We tried to phone her, but it’s saying her phone’s not recognised…”
Her voice trailed off and I put a hand against the wall to steady myself. Time froze as I listened to her anxious sobs; my heart slammed against the confines of my ribcage. It was beyond comprehension. I’d seen Lucy every day for five years. I couldn’t think of my life without her friendship in it. In the course of a few hours, a few minutes, it was gone.
My throat dried up and I swallowed so I could speak. “She doesn’t have a key to my house, so she couldn’t have come back here without me knowing. Have you phoned the police?”
“They’re here now.”
I reached for a pair of jeans on my desk. “Alright, I’m coming over.”
I hung up and dressed faster than I ever had in my life. Then I stumbled into the corridor, pulling socks onto my feet in mid-step, and hammered on my parents’ door.
“Apa!” I shouted. After a moment he appeared in his raggedy pyjamas, blinking groggily in the glare of the light overhead.
“What’s the matter?” he asked, words drawling as he tried to shake off his sleep. “Why are you being so noisy?”
“Please, I need you to take me to Lucy’s house,” I cried frantically. “She’s missing!”

About the Author-
E. C. Hibbs has lived all her life in Cheshire, northwest England. A lover of stories from an early age, she wrote her first 'book' when she was five, and throughout school was a frequent visitor to the younger classes to read her tales to the children.

Living so near the coast, she loves anything to do with the sea. She studied Animal Behaviour at university and longs to work with marine mammals in the future. As well as nature and animals, she also has a soft spot for history, and loves paying visits to castles, cathedrals and museums.

There are many things she could be without, but writing isn't one of them. She carries a pen everywhere, in case an idea appears, and takes pride in still seeing the world as brimming with magic. Besides writing, she reads obsessively, her favourite genres being the classics and all kinds of fantasy. She also enjoys Disney and horror films, practising Shotokan karate, drawing, archery, and playing with her very cheeky kitten.
