Becca Fitzpatrick Says Hush, Hush


Here’s a book that seems to look interesting on the outside but kind of disappoints on the inside from what a lot of readers who have reviewed have said. It still sounds fascinating. Author Becca Fitzpatrick has written a young adult novel entitled Hush, Hush which she and Simon & Schuster are both obviously trying to market to the Twilight / Vampire Chronicles crowd. Instead of pretty boys with fangs though, she is using fallen angels for her targets of teenage girls’ desires. Now I’m not going to start throwing stones at a book I haven’t even read, but judging by a few of the more in-depth reviews I read on Amazon, the book is kind of slow and doesn’t really pick up for quite a while. I’d love to hear some feedback from anyone who has read the book. The main protagonist in the book is a fallen angel named Patch. I have to say that’s a pretty lame name for a fallen angel, but I also don’t have a major book published either. I’m not certain what religious angle (if any) the book comes from, but if anyone knows please comment. I’d be interested in hearing. Does Patch end up being a demon (which is what fallen angels really are in the Christian religion) or is he just a Nephilim (the product of a human/fallen Angel coupling), who had no choice in his being born? After the jump, you can check out a synopsis of the book, a video trailer, and some info about the author.

Synopsis:
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 who have fallen — and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Author Bio:
Becca Fitzpatrick’s first book, Hush, Hush debuted as a New York Times bestseller. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. When not writing, she’s most likely running, prowling sales racks for shoes or watching crime drams on TV. She lives in Colorado. Find out more at beccafitzpatrick.com.
