Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems 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 she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen -- and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.
I was so incredibly excited to read this book. I mean, just look at that cover, that summary! Everything sounded amazing (besides Patch's name, is it just me or does someone else agree with me that this name is just, bad?). So when I started Hush, Hush I had some expectations. And . . . my expectations fell short.
Hush, Hush was definitely not what I expected. Which disappointed me a little bit. I expected something entirely different from what Hush, Hush is. Maybe it's my fault for not reading the summary carfully or maybe it's whomever wrote the summary's fault. But Hush, Hush didn't meet the expectations I had set for it. Besides that, Hush, Hush was a really good novel.
It got to the plot point a little bit slow, not too slow because I obviously kept reading. But it did save up enough suspense for the big reveal for Nora (since we all know what Patch is from the summary). The characters didn't seem as realistic (the human characters) as they could have been and some (the fallen angel characters) were a little awkward. Though there was a really interesting twist with Patch that I would like to say, but I don't want to spoil it so I won't.
The book was very original. I have yet (before reading this novel) read a book about fallen angels, so that was very interesting concept. It was very entertaining. I recommend this novel if you would like a unique book about something that hasn't been done yet (or very little, at least).
