It seemed to me that this volume was better written than the first, but as I wrote about the first volume, it could have been just the translation. Of course, some of the phrases were too simple and lacked more depth, but that can be overlooked.
What struck me at times, however, were the inconsistencies with the first volume, some of the information simply didn’t match. But I think what annoyed me more was Nora’s stupidity… looking for problems where there were none and needlessly causing arguments with Patch, which also took a toll on their relationship.
At one point it seemed like Nora knew what she wanted and what to do but in the end, she acted completely different… what got me the most was how she accused Patch of killing her father and he didn’t confirm but didn’t deny it either and later when it turned out someone else killed him neither Nora nor Patch came back to it… they just acted like she never accused him. I think they could have explained it in at least one sentence… but whatever, Nora is just Nora.
What was annoying was her behavior at times, but I liked the nature of the story in spite of it all… this series has a very nice theme. I wonder what a movie adaptation would look like.

Series: Hush Hush #2
Nora Grey’s life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn’t pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He’s more elusive than ever (if that’s possible) and what’s worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora’s archenemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town if Patch hadn’t been acting so distant. Even with Scott’s totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him – despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren’t enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried because the truth could destroy everything – and everyone – she trusts.
