Nora Grey has never really been interested in any of the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. That is until the fateful day that she is switched biology partners and ends up sitting next to Patch. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But she is not too trusting of Patch - he seems to be everywhere she is, and to know things about her that not even her closest friends know. She’s torn on whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. But after a series of terrifying encounters, she tries to seek some answers but 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 might just cost her life.
Lately I feel as if I’m reading one good book after another. And this is definitely one of those good books. I picked it up and basically didn’t put it down until I finished it. That should say how captivated I was by this story.
Patch - although there is something shady about him - well, maybe that’s what I found so attractive about him....made me fall in love with him. He was such a bad boy/good guy - does that make sense? I mean the dynamics between him and Nora were something to relish. Nora - was also a fantastic heroine. She was strong-willed, smart, inquisitive - and I’ll tell you this was something I appreciated. I loved that she didn’t just see Patch and automatically fall madly in love. Their relationship had time to grow little by little as the story progressed. I felt excitement when they were united and I was intrigued by him. Vee - Nora’s BFF was hands down the funniest character in the book. She had these awesome one-liners that would crack me up. I loved the tension and the danger surrounding Patch and I loved the fact that who and what he was wasn’t given away right from the start. I don’t want to say much more to not give away any major plot points - but my recommendation would be to GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS at the first opportunity you have. It hits shevles in mid-October so mark your calendar. You will not be disappointed.
I know HUSH, HUSH isn’t even out yet, but I am already anxiously awaiting the next installment, CRESCENDO. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
