Publisher Comments:

Nora Grey is responsible and smart and not inclined to be reckless. Her first mistake was falling for Patch. .andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Patch has made countless mistakes and has a past that could be called anything but harmless. The best thing he ever did was fall for Nora. .andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;After getting paired together in biology, all Nora wants to do is stay away from Patch, but he always seems to be two steps ahead of her. She can feel his eyes on her even when he is nowhere around. She feels him nearby even when she is alone in her bedroom. And when her attraction can be denied no longer, she learns the secret about who Patch is and what led him to her, as well as the dark path he is about to lead her down. Despite all the questions she has about his past, in the end, there may be only one question they can ask each other: How far are you willing to fall?.

Review:

"Fitzpatrick debuts with a gripping chiller where humans become pawns in the hands of fallen angels. Nora Grey is assigned a new partner in her sophomore biology class. Her instincts tell her Patch is trouble, and she doesn't like the way he is already inside her head ('Part of me wanted to run away from him screaming, Fire! A more reckless part was tempted to see how close I could get without... combusting'). Soon she is questioning her sanity — she is attacked by a masked figure that smashes her car window, but later the glass is intact. And the same figure ransacks her bedroom, but everything is in place when the police arrive. The violence and danger escalate, and Nora learns that Patch is actually a fallen angel seeking to become human. Fitzpatrick regularly tweaks the tension, resulting in a fast-paced, exhilarating read. Nora's tempestuous relationship with prototypical bad boy Patch is genuinely, even unsettlingly, seductive — fans of paranormal romance should be rapt. Ages 14 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush sixteen-year old Nora finds forbidden love.

Synopsis:

Partnered in biology with new student Patch, 16-year-old Nora Gray starts seeing things she cannot explain. At first she's both drawn and repelled by her lab partner, but when she sees V-shaped scars on his back, Nora learns Patch is fighting an ancient battle between the fallen and the immortal.

Synopsis:

Life turned upside down for Maddy Montgomery when she found out she was half-Angel and was catapulted into the scene of flashbulbs, paparazzi, and the fervent adulation that comes with being in the celebrity Angel world. She's trying to juggle her ordinary life—high school, family, friends—with the intense demands of being in the public eye as heartthrob Angel Jackson Godspeed's girlfriend.

And now Maddy must face the most difficult choice of her life. She's been offered the chance to become a Guardian. This means entering into dangerous and high stakes training, with no guarantee that she can succeed. But more than that, it would mean leaving her mortal life behind—forever—and allying with the Angels at a time when their relationship with humans is heading for war. . . .

Synopsis:

Weeks after his crucifixion and rebirth as Phoenix, Ash Fisher believes his troubles are far behind him. He and Natalie are engaged and life seems good. But his happiness is short-lived when he receives a threatening visit from Purian Rose, who gives Ash an ultimatum: vote in favor of Rose’s Law permanently relegating Darklings to the wrong side of the wall or Natalie will be killed.
 
The decision seems obvious to Ash; he must save Natalie. But when Ash learns about The Tenth, a new and deadly concentration camp where the Darklings would be sent, the choice doesn’t seem so simple. Unable to ignore his conscience, Ash votes against Rose’s Law, signing Natalie’s death warrant and putting a troubled nation back into the throes of bloody battle.

Nora is forced to be a lab partner to Patch. Nora would rather fall to her death rather than put up with his teasing and elusive answers to her questions. His handsome face and hypnotizing eyes don’t help either. It seems that Patch’s only reason to be on earth is to driver her crazy.

Now Nora’s defenses are starting to break down as her curiosity gets more intense regarding Patch. It seems that every time she turns around Patch is there and seems to know exactly what she is thinking. He also somehow manages to both attract and repulse her and she doesn’t know why. And then there are the V-shaped scars on his back that has her wondering just what they could possibly be.

The stronger their connection the more fragile Nora’s life becomes. Nora has a decision to make: Is Patch the one that is going to hurt her or keep her safe. Has she managed to fall for a fallen?


This is a series that is starting out very strong and is sure to pull readers into it. The characters are well written and very interesting. The story has a great mystery in it that keeps the reader guessing just who is who and what is going to happen next. The story takes some great turns so the reader doesn’t see what is coming next at any given point. It will also have the reader wanting to read the next book in this series. It proves to be a fast read as the reader won’t want to put it down for any reason. This is one series to definitely check out.

If you love fallen angels or just angels, this book is for you. Nora has no clue the Patch is her guardian angel, but he does come in handy. This book shows us trust and love can come from the oddest places and people. This book as some slow parts and part that make you want to scream, but it's a brilliant story that leaves you guessing. The emotions in this book are brought out so well, you could almost feel them yourselves. Now, just don't go falling for a guy with wings. He may already have someone in his life.
