Book Description

13 Oct 2009 Hush, Hush Saga
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.

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

Hush, Hush is just as amazing as everybody has been saying it is. I completely and utterly loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 22 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hush, Hush. it... was not good. 20 Jan 2013
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ignoring for the moment the problematic nature of the main love story, which other reviews I've read have touched on at length... this just wasn't very good.

Very little happens for the first 3/4 of the book, then there's a massive exposition dump and an overly long climax. That's about it. The relationships in no way ring true, logic of any kind is absent and characters are instead rewarded for ridiculous leaps of logic with being right, and most damningly for this type of genre fiction the supernatural element receives almost no real exploration. One could take it out entirely and only have to make a few small changes to character motivation for the story to make just as much sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 6 Nov 2009
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Nora Grey isn't your typical high school student in the sense that she spends a lot of time on her own and yet concentrates on her studies and has her head on straight. She is that good girl that doesn't want any trouble and, slightly reminding me of Rory from my beloved Gilmore Girls in the "has her sights set on Yale and nothing will stand in her way" attitude (and yes, I know Rory was Harvard-bound, but you get where I'm going). But trouble seems to find her in the form of that mysteriously gorgeous bad boy, Patch.

And Patch...how can I describe Patch without turning into a puddle of mush? Well, he's trouble, plain and simple. But he's that good kind of trouble that just about anyone with the XX chromosome is attracted to. He's got the sarcasm down to an art and there's also the fact there's something about him that's not quite right.

Becca Fitzpatrick has done a beautiful job with not only the characters in HUSH, HUSH, but also the imagery is phenomenal. There are moments when she describes the scenery and it feels as if you are walking through places they frequented. And yet even in what should be the most innocent of events, there seemed to be this undertone that something dangerous was near.

And one thing that makes me over the moon is the fact that every character serves a purpose. There's not all these extra characters thrown in there along the way, with no explanation of why. I like that. The only thing about the entire story that got me was Vee, but just a little. I found Vee to be one of those friends that you have to take care of and keep an eye on like you do a child. A bit reckless and self-absorbed, but she still plays her role.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I REALLY wanted to like this book. After reading Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments trilogy (which i really enjoyed) I was excited that a new book was out following the mythology of angels, the fallen and nephilim. Unfortunately Hush Hush just didn't live up to my hopes.

The pacing of the story is awful, with the first two thirds of the book reiterating how the lead character Nora, and the reader's narrator, really likes this guy Patch..but shouldn't because she senses he's dangerous...but still does; apart from this almost constant repetition little else happens in the plot. After over 200 hundred pages of 'should she, shouldn't she' and 'is this attraction or fear' (both infuriating and boring), the story finally starts to pick up a bit, but not much.

Finally, after all the build up, the entirety of what Patch is and why he is in Nora's life etc spills out in a total of about 4 pages.

What made this so disappointing was that the premise of the story is great, the characters have a lot of potential to develop and the mythology could be explored with a fresh approach, unfortunately none of this happens and on finishing the book i just had the feeling of 'oh, was that it?'.
The author barely scratched the surface of any depth that could have made this book good and instead rambled on incessantly about whether or not Nora does in fact fancy or fear the bloke only ever described as being dark, with dark eyes, wearing dark jeans and dark boots (and an occasionally changing t-shirt).

For other fans of YA fantasy/romance who are craving a bit of supernatural escapism, buy the Cassandra Clare trilogy, Kristen Cashore's 'Graceling' and 'Fire' duo or Maggie Stiefvater's 'Shiver' instead.
