Book Description

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…

An old friend’s dead body, a cryptic note, and an explosion that almost costs him his own life propel Nate headfirst into a mystery involving a new threat from an old foe. Now he must piece together the connections between a grisly series of tattooed murder victims, an imprisoned madman, a mysterious alchemist, and a deranged plot to usurp the throne of the hidden realm of Shadow Falls, rival to the power of Avalon.

Can Nate avert the coming slaughter, or will he become the latest to fall in this clandestine war?

With the story careening between modern-day New York and Ontario and 1977 Maine, With Silent Screams continues the gritty and action-packed mix of urban fantasy and ancient mythology that mark Steve McHugh’s popular Hellequin Chronicles.

    More About the Author

    Steve's been writing from an early age, his first completed story was done in an English lesson. Unfortunately, after the teacher read it, he had to have a chat with the head of the year about the violent content and bad language. The follow up 'One boy and his frog' was less concerning to his teachers and got him an A.

    It wasn't for another decade that he would start work on a full length novel, the result of which is Crimes Against Magic.

    He was born in a small village called Mexborough, South Yorkshire, but now lives with his wife and three young daughters in Southampton.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Hellequin strikes again 19 Feb. 2014
    By D Lewis
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is the third installment (fourth if you include novella Infamous Reign) and i've been waiting for this book apprehensively.
    I loved the first 2 although the first crimes against magic is my favorite, in this installment we find a little bit more about Hellequins past, but what i like about McHugh's writing is that he grabs you from the start and With Silent Screams does that from the start.
    Well paced, with great development of not only our central characters but peripheral ones as well, with the hints of something larger brewer, I would heartily recommend this one with comes close to Crimes against magic in being my favorite so far.
    I finished it in a night and now have the painful wait for the next one.
    The only disappointment you'll have in buying With Silent Screams in finishing it and having to wait for the fourth one (fifth if you include the novella).
    Nathan Garrett, also known as Hellequin is equal parts enforcer, investigator, mediator, assassin and a man who'll do whats necessary. In with silent screams more layers of him are revealled as the action never ceases from farm to hotels to the mean streets his story held with rapted.
    Can't recommend this enough.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better. 3 Mar. 2014
    By Liz Wilkins TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    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 irrevocably fell in love.

    I had only just started my foray into Urban Fantasy and was looking for another fix and here it was right here. Now we are onto Book 3 (with a short story bridge as well) and these just get better and better. For sheer reading fun, it rarely gets better than this- a glorious mix of known mythology, a brand new world to explore, some tremendous characters and always a heartstopping and well constructed story.

    In this instalment someone makes the rather extreme error of killing a person Nate is fond of. Then attempting to blow him up. Follow all that with a good deal of smug goading and your fate is probably sealed. And so it begins.

    Once again we have a past/present twist to the tale, some magnificently evil bad guys and some beautifully imagined settings where magic and reality collide. WereLions, Cave Trolls and Guardians, other realms, wizardry and mayhem all tied up together in a fantastic package of adrenalin rushing goodness. Like a Rollercoaster ride in novel form, you are in for one hell of a ride.

    These are adult in nature – the violence is as violent as real violence is.. the fights are down and dirty with no holds barred and Nate himself is the very definition of anti hero.

    I have to say Steve McHugh is getting better with every book. I've enjoyed the stories and more importantly i find the characters extremely likable. The stories are well written and as such the i find i devour the pages too quickly, Hopefully Steve will learn shorthand so he can produce his next book quicker. Well done

    5.0 out of 5 stars Quality as ever! 20 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Just finished the book after a couple of days (an achievement with a 18 month old daughter!). Have to say I loved it as always. The wait for the next could be a killer. Storyline goes along at a fair old pelt and the second story of the past was very recent which made a pleasant change. Nate continues to grow in strength but no new powers this time, just an evolution of one. This again means he has further to go in the future. A big bad is now definitely coming from somewhere and there looks like there is a defined path for the future. I'm sure some people won't be happy with it for all the politically correct reasons, but if you want to escape for a few hours with a story of different realms, vampires, werelions, Galahad among others you really could do worse. I never write reviews but these stories are seriously enjoyable and the three people I made try them all love them as well! Hope you give it a go

    5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the Dresden Files, this is for you 5 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Once again, another excellent book from Steve McHugh! The third instalment of the Hellequin Chronicles was unputdownable. The characters, old and new, are fully realised and are as endearing/loathesome as intended. The plot is fast-paced, violent (but not gratuitously so) and compelling. As an author, Steve is easily on par with Jim Butcher, and fans of the Dresden Files will love this series. Bring on Book 4!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Stop 11 Mar. 2015
    By simon211175 VINE VOICE
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Sometimes you find yourself hooked on a new series of books, you know - where you can't wait to read the next one. Then all of a sudden, with the storyline left completely open, the author just stops (see Kate Griffin's A Madness of Angels: A Matthew Swift Novel series as a case in point).

    Now I find myself hooked on this series, and I'm hoping it won't stop any time soon. With this book we see more of the power associated with Hellequin, as we see him fight alongside Leonardo da Vinci and King Galahad against some large Werelions and a cave troll. I mean, what else can I add to that to make you read this?

    Having read the first two books in this series (Crimes Against Magic (The Hellequin Chronicles) and Born of Hatred (The Hellequin Chronicles)) I see no reason why you'd need to read a review to entice you in to reading this book, but if you do then this is it. Go. Read. This. Book.

    Now, where's book 4?
