Deep Silence follows an unknown young girl who has lost her memory. Having taken pity on her, the old Duke gives her the name Audra, along with a fine wardrobe, as she is told that her relatives will find her soon. As no family comes forward to claim her, Audra is sent to an orphanage with the other unwanted young girls. Three years pass in which she tries to quietly get by, happy to go unnoticed. With some of the older girls, she becomes a teacher and is quite content with life until her past comes back with a bang. The handsome rake, Lord Ronan, drags her away into a world of spies, assassins, and vengeful kings. Suddenly all of these powerful people are very interested in her.
Jordan Elizabeth has created an exciting world with some similarities to Victorian England with the etiquette and social standings but with magic from the feared Goshen witches. For a relatively short book, Deep Silence packs in a lot of story. It is a fast-moving adventure, as the mystery of Audra’s missing memory is solved, leading to a much bigger dilemma. Sometimes I felt it ran a little too fast, but it was still an enjoyable ride. There is the romantic interest with Lord Ronan, but I quite liked that it was secondary to the main plot. This story is about Audra, finding out what type of woman she is; finding out what she is capable of and how far she will go. Lord Ronan supports her all the way, and I found that refreshing.
