Description

A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love...This darkly romantic story features our heroine, Nora Grey, a seemingly normal teenage girl with her own shadowy connection to the Nephilim, and super-alluring bad boy, Patch, now her deskmate in biology class. Together they find themselves at the centre of a centuries-old feud between a fallen angel and a Nephilim...Forced to sit next to Patch in science class, Nora attempts to resist his flirting, though gradually falls for him against her better judgment. Meanwhile creepy things are going on with a mysterious stalker following her car, breaking into her house and attacking her best friend, Vi. Nora suspects Patch, but there are other suspects too - not least a new boy who has transferred from a different college after being wrongly accused of murdering his girlfriend. And he seems to have taken a shine to Nora...Love certainly is dangerous...and someone is going to have to make the ultimate sacrifice for it.show more

The story telling quality while not that compelling is still good, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5. The story itself while not extremely great, it's not too bad either. I would give it another 3.5 out of 5. The ending closed the story nicely and I would give it a 4 out of 5. It's not a masterpiece but it's an enjoyable read none the less. Cherry's Rating: 3.5 out of 5show more

Im giving this book 3 stars, mostly because i didnt like the style of writting she used. I also didnt really like that the writer did the whole "girl is obsesed about finding out more about boy" thing. WHY DO WRITTERS KEEP DOING THAT!!! NOT ALL GIRLS ACT THAT WAY!!! But besides that the author didnt give much insight into the characters. Nora, the main character was a bit...boring and Patch was a bit too arogant. putting that all aside the book had a vary good storyline, with most of the religious and biblical stuff accurate, if you know what i mean. so im giving it 3 stars hopefully her second book will be better...show more

The concept for this story is great, but there were downfalls. It's hard to explain this without giving away spoilers, but I felt that the reasons for certain actions weren't believable. As Tom Clancy said: "The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense." But to me this novel didn't make sense. It felt like excuses were thrown in that just weren't believable at all. As for the characters... I did really like Patch. He brought a lot of humor into the book. Nora, on the other hand, I found to be bland. She didn't seem to have a definite personality and was very hot and cold with the way she reacted around Patch. Her best, seemingly only, friend, Vee was slightly annoying. She wouldn't listen to Nora when she should have, and some of the things she did to/for her, I wouldn't consider very nice at all. Also, the policemen were very unbelievable. A sixteen year old girl calls in a break in, they go out to her house, she says it must have been a mistake and they just leave her alone with a "Get your mum to call us when she gets home.". Then, later, they accuse her of a crime and go on to question her, a minor, without a parent or guardian of any kind present. Having said all that, I did actually enjoy reading Hush Hush. I really wanted to know how it ended up and how everything was resolved. It was an addicting read which I finished in one day. The end isn't a cliffhanger but it does leave a lot of unanswered questions. For her debut, Becca Fitzpatrick has done a pretty good job. The sequel to Hush Hush, Crescendo, comes out in Autumn (Fall) 2010. Overall, I rate Hush Hush at 3 and a 1/2 stars out of 5. I recommend it to lovers of angel stories and YA fantasy.show more
