If you’re a twilight-loving-vampire-obsessed teenager like myself who loves getting lost in the mysterious tales of ordinary school girls falling in love with brooding, dangerous, dark-eyed immortal boys then Hush, Hush is the perfect book for you.
Nora Grey is an average sixteen-year-old school girl with a quirky best friend, a mixed-up past and a strong grip on her future and her actions. Then she meets Patch. Patch with his tangle of dark waves, bottomless black eyes and chiselled cheek bones seems to be able to see inside Nora and she is drawn to him against her better judgement.
But Patch has a dark-side and somehow he seems to know more about Nora than she does herself. And when Nora tries to delve into Patch’s past, she finds herself deep in the centre of a raging battle between the immortal and the fallen and this leaves her having to make a pain-staking decision… which side do you take?
I have always had a biased opinion on books in this genre and written in this style. I thought that Stephenie Meyer and the twilight saga could not be copied or even beaten by any other book in this genre but this book changed my views entirely. Not only am I now hooked on angels and immortals but it was refreshing and unpredictable and has made me scrape together my pennies for the second instalment which I’m sure will not disappoint.
