Goodreads description--A SACRED OATH
A FALLEN ANGEL
A FORBIDDEN LOVE
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems 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 she 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 Nora her life.
I just finished reading Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I finished it in 3 days if that tells you anything. I can't quite give this book my sacred 5 star rating, but it deserves a very fair 4 1/2 stars. It caught my interest quickly and kept me intrigued throughout the whole book. While there were some aspects I didn't quite expect, some of the plot was predictable. A friend of mine read this before I did and Crescendo as well. She tells me there are more twists in store.
I'm a Patch fan already. Looking forward to reading Crescendo soon. I actually put off reading this book because of a negative review I read on Amazon.com. Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but I completely disagree. I love the cover too (which was the only good thing mentioned in the Amazon.com review I read).
That's about it for now...I'm trying not to discuss details too much. I fully believe in experiencing books as they are meant to be. You receive details and information as you progress and that's what makes the story.
