Daughter of Deep Silence | Book Review #43


I’m the daughter of murdered parents.
I’m the friend of a dead girl.
I’m the lover of my enemy.
And I will have my revenge.

In the wake of the devastating destruction of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell it’s story–and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace knows the terrifying truth, and she’ll stop at nothing to avenge the murders of everyone she held dear. Even if it means taking down the boy she loves and possibly losing herself in the process.’

Daughter of Deep Silence is described as ‘a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose.‘ and they’re right.

This fast paced novel is a great read. I was swept up immediately in the emotional beginning, and by the second chapter I was already so hooked into the book that I was practically living alongside Libby. — I know that I say that a lot in the reviews of the books I read which are fast paced, but for this book, I seriously mean it. I think that the total amount of time this book covers, is maybe… a week or so? Two weeks, tops. And I couldn’t help it.. I was swept up into the story.

So the first chapter; the emotional start in which the story is sparked, is where the story actually begins. We see what happens to Frances and her friend, Libby. What follows is what starts Frances thirst for revenge.

Daughter of Deep Silence has a great likeness to the TV show, Revenge. Aside from those basic similarities, Ryan manages to keep this book unique to its own story. Frances Mace is 14-years-old when she lost everyone she loved and cared about. And in the second chapter; when the story really starts, is when Frances is 18 years old. By then she knows what she’s going to do to get her revenge, but circumstances don’t always work out, and by the time her plan is almost fulfilled, she has to change it entirely.

I read this book very quickly. I managed to read this book within a 4-5 hour timeframe. I even love this little flashbacks this book has of the attack. Which just reinforces Frances’ crave for justice – no matter how it’s served. I’m also reminded that Frances has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – thanks to the attack – and I believe that Ryan has managed to capture what it’s like (for Frances) at least to have PTSD.

The plot of the book even managed to surprise me a few times. And Frances did some stuff that I don’t think she would do actually. Like, that never crossed my mind. Daughter of Deep Silence is a book that I won’t forget for a long while. I love that this story is one of revenge, and I love that even though the story was clouded in mystery, everything was well spoken. Details were clear, the writing is smooth and flowed amazingly well.

I absolutely love this book. And that ending!! Holy crap. All I ask is for an after story, told in Grey’s point of view. Please!!!

Daughter of Deep Silence is a great stand alone that has me wanting more.

If you haven’t checked out Daughter of Deep Silence on GoodReads yet, do so! I really recommend this book to everyone.

Thanks for reading! Until next time,
