For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
Wow, this book was amazing. I enjoyed reading it so much. The characters were great and the plot was ingenious. Becca Fitzpatrick kept me at the edge of my seat until the last page, and even then I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. Hush Hush definitely left room for a sequel. When I first began reading I wasn't completely sure what was going to happen, you never knew who to trust or what was what- this was a mystery, romance, fantasy, and suspense novel all tied into one. One of the best parts of the book was the fact that Patch and Nora had great chemistry, they went together really well. Patch was the perfect mysterious bad boy, who kept you wondering about his dark past. There were also a lot of sub-plots that added to the novel. Everything was tied up at the end, but I'm still anxious to read the sequel.
For a debut novel, this book was fantastic, even for a seasoned writer this was a great book! I loved the unique names of the characters as well- Patch, Nora, Vee, Elliot, Kjirsten. One of the most amazing things about this book was the fact that it was such a unique topic. Fallen angels is something I've never read about, I'm now intrigued to learn more about them. Also, the cover was great, too. I love it! There's so many dimensions to it, and although the colors are dull they work. It's a perfect cover, definitely one of my favorites of the books I've read lately. All in all I'm so happy I got a copy of this one for review (well two copies to be exact) and am planning on picking up a hardcover copy when it's released in October.
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
