Product Description

Review

"I've read it myself, and it is absolutely brilliant!" --BellaAndEdward.com, 11th Aug 09

"Well written, lovingly crafted with a savvy protagonista with a love interest so quirky and unpredictable it is going to have the reader with their heart in their mouth the whole way." -- Falcata Times, 31 July 09

"The story is well-paced and I didn't guess what was going on so found myself hooked to discover the truth. I found the most exciting part was the last third of the book and I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it!"
--The Bookbag, 10 Aug 09

Firstly, I should confess to not being a teenager being in my early 30s, so I am not, strictly speaking, the intended audience for this book. However, I really enjoy this type of fiction and I am glad that I was persuaded by the reviews, to buy it.

The story is compelling with plenty of mystery and action to keep you interested. I liked the characters and I thought that they were believable and engaging. I read the book very quickly in 2 sittings because I couldn't wait to see where it was all leading.

My only criticisms are: 1) lack of description- I never had a clear picture in my head of where it was all happening. I also don't have any sort of image of what the characters look like. If you asked me now, I could tell you that Nora had wild curly hair, Vee was curvy, Patch had black hair and Jules was tall. That is it. It would have been much easier to really get absorbed in the story if the characters and the setting had been more vividly described. 2) Maybe a little more guidance on the whole nephil/fallen angel history would have been helpful. I know there are a lot of fiction books in this genre and some people might be well-aquainted with it, but if this is your first foray into the genre, you might find it lacking in detail.

Don't let any of that put you off though! It's well-worth reading and I expect I will want to read it again soon. I hope there are going to be follow up books too, because I would like to know more about Nora and Patch's future.

Format: Paperback
I'm surprised to see so many gushing reviews about this book. Fallen angel malarkey aside, if Patch was simply an ordinary boy with no 'magically justifiable love/lust/murderous intent (because all three are synonymous in this book)' for Nora, and if he wasn't 'smoulderingly good looking' (because as we've seen with Twilight, sex appeal TOTALLY makes up for stalking!), then this book would read out to be one of those court cases in which Nora should be filing a restraining order against this creepo whackjob like an episode of Law and Order: SVU.

She was clearly uncomfortable with his advances at first and she darn well should have been! Too bad no one else seems to think his stalkerish behaviour of her is worth noting and protecting her from, not even her so-called best friend. Patch and Nora sit in Bio class together 'learning' sex ed (in quote marks because they learn absolute cuss about nothing) where he proceeds to humiliate her in front of her class by listing all the reasons she's 'game' for him. Uh, how is this okay? The class was inappropriate enough as it is, but this just took the cake. When Nora sensibly decided she'd rather not get harassed by the whacko and went to the teacher to move seats, her teacher even decided "Hey, you're not REALLY uncomfortable with this guy's inappropriate actions towards you! I know, I'll have you tutor him!" FOR GOD'S SAKE. Then later on Patch /chased her around a deserted parking garage at night/. And instead of doing the right thing (kick him in the nuts then run like hell and call the police) she decides she'd rather get on his motorcycle, because "Ooooh, mysterious smouldering eyes!" *swoon*

In fact, the entire book is full of women who think of nothing but sex and 'bad boys' while all the men are utter, complete, CREEPY JERKS.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Niki Thwaites on 29 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
Loving all types of urban fantasy, both adult and young teens ( and I am not a teenager, but a woman in her fifties). I was totally disappointed with this book , especially after reading the glowing reviews. The characters were one dimensional and I felt no connection with them at all. Lack of description was also a problem. But the most annoying thing about the book was how long before anything happened. I was almost three quarters of the way through before I got a real sense of what the book was about. So why did I stay with the book if it was so boring ? Because I kept thinking that maybe the next chapter would be a turning point.

Maybe this book would be suitable for a young teen, but if you love urban fantasy and are an adult, forget it.

I really liked this book. But that's the point, I 'liked' it, I didn't 'love' it. IT's a good read and I certainly found it compelling enough that I read it in two sittings. However the ending was lacking for me. Such an anti-climax when there had been so much sexual tension and bristling emoting between the two main protagonists.
I have to say, it is well written, and I think the concept of the Nephilim and the fallen angels brilliant. It definetly put a different spin on the usual 'fallen from grace' idea.
Younger teens will enjoy this I'm sure. It practically screams high school romance and angst. But like I said, I found the ending to be so weak and left me wanting.
But I would read it again because it is safe and does spur the imagination.
It's worth a read.

I read this book in one sitting but not because it was good. I read it in one sitting because I knew that if I put it down I would have no interest in picking it back up.

I was really looking forward to reading this book. Aside from the beautiful cover, the book comes with the tantalising tagline 'A Fallen Angel...A Forbidden Love'. In no way did I feel that this book lived up to what it promised.

The book focuses on sixteen-year-old Nora Grey, a normal girl who finds her life turned upside down when she is partnered in bio lab with the dangerous, sexy anti-hero type boy that no one really knows much about? Sound familiar? Yes, the basic premise of this book could have been copied straight from Stephenie Meyer's 'novels' ( I use this word generously) I did enjoy it far more than Twilight but that's not saying a lot. Though at least in Hush, Hush, Nora does more than sit around moping about her not-quite boyfriend. Credit where credit's due.

I think one of the main problems with this book is that we, the readers, know from the very start what Patch - the archetypal anti-hero - is. It is spelled out for us in no small detail. Therefore it is annoying and frankly quite painful to watch Nora stumbling through three hundred odd pages of the book, trying to work out what Patch is. We all know so to watch her floundering through two-thirds of the book is just annoying. I kept hoping she'd just discover the truth about Patch and get on with the story but she didnt. Instead we get subjected to her embarrassing amateur sleuthing and that gets old very quickly.

Patch is barely even a character. He is painfully undeveloped.
