I only received one book in the mail this week, but oh, what a book! It was Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I entered a contest on the publisher's website a month or so ago, and on Wednesday this book showed up. It was quite a surprise because I didn't know it was coming.
My original plan was to wait awhile before reading it. You know, enjoy the suspense. However, on Friday night I found myself agreeing to "just a couple chapters." And then I stayed up until 2 a.m. to finish it. It was amazing.
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.
