Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

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.

Received from the publisher for review.

The book was initially engrossing and almost hypnotic but by about halfway through I started to lose interest. It felt a bit like a City of Angels cross with Buffy/Angel. It had a very dark, sexy feel to it, which was nice. The only thing I truly had an issue with was the Vee character. The thin, pretty, fragile main character (Nora) with the overweight, tougher, less attractive sidekick felt a bit "been there - done that".

This one gets four stars. Despite the flaws it was quite well written and had a nice feel. Buffy fans would most likely enjoy the tragic love story aspect most.

= Really Liked It

I loved this book actually. As I said in my review it was everything I wanted Twilight to be. I wanted to like Twilight but I couldn't, now I have a series to like and I"m so excited for the next book.
