SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS.COM:
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 This title also contains an exclusive, original story written especially for this book by the author. This bonus story tells what happens to the characters between Book 1 and Book 2 of this series and will only be available in this book.
I've been meaning to read Hush, Hush for awhile, but haven't had the time. When Gladys of Sea Lion Books was looking for bloggers to review Hush, Hush The Graphic Novel, I jumped at the chance to review it.
I was surprised that it's in black and white. Perhaps it's a play on Nora's surname (Grey)? It doesn't really matter, though, as the illustrations are quite good.
Nora is dressed provocatively through much of the novel. I'm not sure if that's really how she is in the books, but I found it both attractive and a little bit off. Patch, on the other hand, reminds me of a cockier Edward Cullen.
As for the story, it's basically the first part of the Hush, Hush story. It's more of how Patch and Nora meet and first interact and there's not a lot of other stuff that goes on. It does build up quite nicely, though, and makes you want to read the next volume in the series. Plus, the illustration for Volume 2 is gorgeous, so this series could definitely get interesting.
Thanks to Sea Lion Books for the e-ARC.
- Anime-style graphics lends itself well to the story.
