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.
I think I can say that this book has been one of the most anticipated of 2009. So to say I wasn't excited to read this would be a major understatement. Of course I'd read some serious mixed reviews (mostly good though)but when I recieved this in the mail from an amazon order, I just couldn't wait to read it. So I read and read and read. And then read some more. Then, before I knew it I was on the last page, and I wanted more. A lot more.
Hush, Hush was one of those novels, like Twilight, some people really love it, some people hate it. For me, I loved it, I usually do with these kind of novels. I also liked how Becca Fitzpatrick brought something new to the table - Fallen Angels. I hate to say it but Vampires are getting old; fast, which is ironic because they're immortal creatures. (haha). But Fallen Angels - you don't have to worry about "becoming a vampire" or "sparkling in the sunlight", it was all bure badness minus the blood.
I found the plot to be truly intruiging, I love those kind of books, mystery, romance, suspense, paranormal. The writting was exceptional and the characters all were different with interesting personalities and backrounds. Vee, Nora's best friend started to get annoying towards the end of the book, but then I started to like her again.
If you haven't read this novel, I strongly suggest you do. Not to mention the "eek" factor about the cover. Beautiful, no? So go buy this novel. NOW! Oh, and buy it HERE
