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.

"I've read it myself, and it is absolutely brilliant!", 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 09Hush, Hush is just as amazing as everybody has been saying it is. I completely and utterly loved it., August 2009

    Hush, Hush is basically an angelic imitation of Twilight. Nora is made to sit next to a moody teenage boy – Patch – in school and finds herself drawn to him despite (or because of) the aura of danger around him. The parallels with Twilight are many, and are laughable. She even googles what she thinks is going on, exactly like Bella does with Edward. There are so many flaws: Nora doesn’t even bat an eyelid at the fact that Patch is possibly a fallen angel, and deals remarkably well with multiple people trying to kill her. In fact, she manages to maintain her focus on her attraction to Patch throughout the entire book. The girl has questionable priorities but fantastic concentration.I actually did quite like Nora. She’s surprisingly un-whiney for a YA protagonist, and Patch is an incredibly clichéd but likeable character. Looking back, the story is actually pretty awful. Not much happens; almost the whole book is about Nora and Patch’s blossoming romance, with very little actually being about angels and whatnot. Yet, I really enjoyed it. It’s hard to pinpoint what I actually enjoyed about this book because I’m not even sure what was going on for half of it, but I couldn’t put it down. Maybe I’m just a sucker for a paranormal YA romance, all I know is I loved it and will definitely be reading book #2.

    I'm really hoping that this is the 'New Moon' of this series: the slower novel that introduces a set of characters and a mythology, setting things in motion for the books to come. I already have Crescendo and Silence (Hush Hush), so hopefully it'll all take off from here (no pun intended!).Anyway, back to THIS book. Nora, a grounded and smart student, is disappointed when her biology teacher mixes up the class seating plan, meaning that instead of her wise-cracking friend Vee she will now be partnered with the new kid, enigmatic Patch. As the novel progresses strange things start to happen to Nora. Someone's out to get her, someone's messing with her mind, and she has no idea where to turn. She's uncomfortably aware that there's something 'off' about Patch, yet her growing attraction to him convinces her that he's not the culprit. Is Patch more dangerous than she believes? If not, who else could be out to get her? Or is she just losing her mind?If this sounds a little confusing, it's because it is. I started to get some idea of who was behind it all, but Fitzpatrick does a good job of keeping all of her less-than-nice characters in the 'potential suspect' line. Unfortunately, this also means that she has to keep veering off on odd tangents and often seems to lose the focus of the narrative a bit as a result. Towards the end, the chemistry between Patch and Nora increased and things started to fall into place, and that more solid grasp on what was happening meant I enjoyed the last quarter much more. Nora's a great narrator, and I'm hoping that the storylines are now going to get a bit more angel-focussed and that Patch is going to be developed and opened up more as a character. Fingers crossed that Fitzpatrick has upped the stakes for 'Crescendo'!

    Great book with awesome character developments and story plot. A lot of twists and interesting scenarios! Do recommend if you like fantasy romance novels.

  • By Jo Russell on 16 March 2013

    Felt the last book seemed really rushed. Looks of key information given in a short space of time and you were left to absorb (and believe) until the next bit of important info. Felt main boy/girl could have a had a few more close moments to excite the readers!?

    Absolute classic bad boy love story with a angelic twist. Great characters can't wait to continue with the series. Brilliant!
