Reviews With Silent Screams (Hellequin Chronicles #3)

  • Mike (the Paladin)
    First of all the "generic" rating/review. It's a good book. if you like Urban Fantasy and/or action I think you'll like it.Okay now for those who'd like a little more detail as to why I like it, read on.First I will be assuming that if you are planning to read this book you have already read the first 2. If you haven't stop messing around here, go and get the first 2 books and read them. If you're an Urban Fantasy fan you'll like them. Really go ...

    Someone is trying to send Nate Garrett a message, and since it's Nate, they're sending it with blood. When Nate receives a call from an old friend and arrives to find the friend rather messily murdered, he knows something is up. When the mysterious killers follow up with a well-placed bomb, it begins to get a little personal. Nate soon realises that the people after him have some connection with a case he closed over thirty years ago, a case that...

    So much potential, but……For some reason finding a good male lead urban fantasy is quite a feat. The two series, that I believe, lead the pack in this genre are The Dresden Files and the Iron Druid Chronicles. After reading the first two Hellequin books I thought we may have a new contender. The main character wasn’t a distraught underdog (something I hate and many series seem to be adopting), there was plenty of action, and I enjoyed the sp...
  • Gary
    not as good as the first two but we'll worth the read looking forward to the next one
  • Ami
    Nate Garrett returned!!! I loved this series; was happy when I stumbled into it by chance. It was fast-paced and entertaining. This book brought up the gory factor. The villains were vicious. The horror that they brought upon the victims were insane. Although I couldn't help to get pretty excited over it (I sound insane myself, don't I?) because it gave reason for Nate to go rampage over the villain... As always, this book has historical flashbac...
  • Kitvaria Sarene
    Another great adventure! Devoured it in two days - and already started on the fourth...Amazing series, interesting characters, unpredictable plot and lots of magic had me perfectly entertained once more throughout the book!Heartily recommended for fans of HArry Dresden or Iron Druid Chronicles!
  • Liz Barnsley
    With thanks to the author and publisher for the review copy.His name is Nathan Garrett, but he’s also known as Hellequin. And murdering one of his friends and trying to blow him up is a good way to get this centuries-old sorcerer’s full attention…A long time ago (It feels like now) I impulsively purchased “Crimes Against Magic” the first in the Hellequin series from Steve McHugh featuring sorcerer Nate Garrett and immediately and irrevo...
  •  Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)
    This is by far the darkest book in the series so far, which is saying something. I think it might also be my favorite. I loved the magic and the supernatural entities in the book, and Nate when he's peeved is something to watch out for. This would make a great action movie, although I'd cringe on some parts. Nate is the man!!Reviewed for Bitten by Books. http://bittenbybooks.com.
  • Michael Leffel
    Wow! I have never been disappointed with this series, every novel kicks it up a notch! And if you read this series you all ready know that! If you haven't well start with book 1 you will love them all!
  • Annie
    While I've really enjoyed this series so far, I do wish the author had fleshed out the characters a bit more. They are all typically entirely centered around one or two character traits, and those traits seem to be consistent across all the characters that help Nate out. I wish there was more variety. But that won't stop me from continuing to read the series!
  • Anoop Menon
    Though lacked the kind of depth that it had in its previous two books... (felt like something was missing)... i enjoyed this book equal to the previous two books in the series.. great setup and good way the characters are setup from history/mythology...awesome take on it.. must read..!!
  • Scott Voyles
    The Hellenic is backI thought this book was better as there were more insights into the main character. I the magic is stronger and the plot thicker.
  • Jules (Never enough time to read)
    I really enjoyed this one.It is turning into a favourite series of mine, I'm so glad I stuck with Nate after not liking him all that much in book one. It was a fun, action packed and fast read.
  • Teresa B.
    I really love this series! Not normally into urban fantasy with a male as the lead charactor but Im addicted to this series bad part is I have to wait for the author to write his next book
  • Victoria
    A good read. Really getting into this series. Looking forward to the next book.
  • Shannon
    Visiting old characters (like Sky), meeting new characters that could be useful in the future, and having Nate learn more about his necromancy while he no longer has blood magic ... It's a great book! I'm really enjoying this series and like the jumping between past and present, which ties the whole story together. In this book we go to Shadow Falls, see multiple battles with werelions and trolls, and get more proof that while Nate will do anythi...
  • Gail Newbold
    I think there was a lot going on in this book, so I lost the plot a little bit. However, I just love Nate as a character, that I couldn't care less what he was doing as long as he was on scene, kicking ass.Obviously I'm going to keep reading the series.. I appreciate a guy who says exactly what he means, and follows through...exactly.
  • Sereki
    I cannot put these down
  • Jeff
    There are not enough superlatives to describe this series. In a review of an earlier book I compared Nate, the hero, to an urban James Bond (perhaps Jason Bourne might be a better analogy but either works). Well this time, he's up against a cross between Charles Manson, Hannibal Lector and any number of James Bond Villains. Nate is still a brutal killing machine (hence the Bourne analogy)but he's the good guy's killing machine.While this series l...
  • Mel Horne
    Hmmm ok, but I would have liked more information about Nate and his take on the world. He has lived a long time but we don't really get to see how he thinks or why he thinks that way.
  • Nanne
    Another great book in this series. It's hard for me to explain what exactly makes me love this series more than some other UF series I enjoy. First of all I guess it's the lead character who is witty and does the right thing but he also does what is necessary. He has a dark side but he is fully aware of it and it's not something that needs to be kept hidden, it's part of who he is.Secondly I like the worldbuilding. Sure it's all been done before ...
  • Sarah Briggs
    (I received a free copy of this book from 47North, through NetGalley, in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).For some reason, when I saw the cover of this book, I thought it would be more aimed at a young adult audience. The blurb sounded interesting, though, and when I was approved by it, I was quite happy.Somehow, when I was reading the book, it took me a while to stop thinking about Harry Dresden. Although the storylines ...
  • Mark
    IMO, a bit weaker than the first two. Plot/storyline didn't seem to flow as well and seemed overly complex. Still enjoyed it though.
  • Anne Monteith
    I've always enjoyed reading about medieval history, especially the Tudor era. Years ago we had our family history done an discovered that we are related to one of the many Eleanor's in the Plantagenet line and I was excited to read this novel based on Joan, Countess of Kent and niece of King Edward III. I found this book very well-written and I read it in a few hours. I can defiantly say that I am glad that I was not a woman, noble or not during ...
  • Anne Odom
    Hrm. With this installment, my interest in the Hellequin Chronicles wains.Also, if Hellequin makes you think "Harlequin", this is not the book you're looking for.WHAT I LIKED----------------* Humor. Characters have a quick-and-dark wit. Mostly snappy dialogue.* History-Present-Repeat. McHugh does a good job of lacing together a historical plot and a current day plot with the ties that make them relevant to each other.* Moves fast, plenty of actio...
  • Dean
    This was hard to finish. Still creative.
  • Mike
    With Silent Screams is Nathan Garret's third adventure. It's a complete story on its own and does a good job of explaining the key concepts and characters, but tons of significance and context would be lost without knowing Nate's background first. Best to not to start here - go back to Crimes against Magic (book 1).An old friend's murder throws Nate into a long battle of move and counter move all connected to a series of grizzly murders he helped...
  • Nathaniel Hanley
    I am a huge fan of this series and this particularly entry, while not the strongest, was still a lot of fun.The world Steve McHugh has built with the Hellequin series is explosive, funny, sometimes sexy and always at a break neck speed. This particular book dives into a world of Alchemy, Hidden Worlds, Werelions, Trolls of all kinds and Evil that needs to be stomped out as soon as possible.Why did I score this lower than previous books? Some of t...
  • Gnome Claire *Wishes she was as cool as Gnome Ann*
    I re-read this again recently and really enjoyed it. It had been a while since I read anything from the series so I did have to get back into it as I'd pretty much forgotten all the details about the world but it didn't take long for McHugh to get me up to date (without any noticeable info dumps). Nate Garrett is back again and as bad as ever.Throughout the story we switch between a 1977 timeline and a current timeline and it worked really well- ...
  • Steve Caldwell
    Wow, I can't believe I forgot to rate this before now. I loved this book! The magic is bigger, new characters and locations abound, and we are starting to peel away the layers of mystery behind the main characters origin. I can't see where the story is going, but since this is a continuing series, thats a good thing. I am more than willing to take the roller coater ride that are the Nathan Garrett, AKA The Hellequin, books. There is political int...
