Me: So, Damian, what did you think of the book?
Damian: It sucked.
Me: Excuse me?
Damian: You heard me. People who read that book might end up having feelings for Fallen Angels. We don't want you to have feelings for us. We enjoy being hated and feared. I hate it when authors make you like the bad guy. What self-respecting Fallen Angel wouldn't?
Me: So what you're actually saying is that the author does a great job sending the reader on an emotional rollercoaster. Making us actual hope that the "bad" guy isn't really bad?
Damian: Stop twisting my words. Wait. You know, you'd make a great Fallen Angel. Interested in a career change?
Me: Um no, I like writing, thank you very much.
Well, if you want my opinion, I thought the book was AMAZING. I rushed right out and bought the sequel CRESCENDO. Which was good as well, but HUSH HUSH was a truly gripping page turner. I honestly wasn't sure what was going to happen - meaning who was going to be "good" and "bad" until the end. Don't worry. I'm not going to tell you. But I sure had an emotional investment in how it turned out. I actually found it scary as well. Which I can't say happens very often for me, even in books labeled horror. So yeah, I recommend it. Oh and if I haven't convinced you yet - those steamy scenes with Patch and Nora? Whoa. Can you say sexual tension? Wow.
