So many wonderful reviews about Hushed and deservedly so!

Yep I have to say it started with a bang! A great, great story emotional and absorbing with so many twists and turns and what a fantastic ending, a welcome surprise and one I never expected. The sign of a brilliant book for me is when the author manages to make me feel compassion and love, emotions I don't want or expect to feel for a "murderer" you want to hate him but you can't because he's so damn messed up. The confusion guilt and revenge it all rang true he wasn't a monster all he wanted was to be free of Vivian unfortunately he chose the destructive method to free himself.

Archer and Vivian are so embroiled and entangled in each others lives there is no end in sight but a bad one. They have a disturbing relationship which is unhealthy for everyone involved, too bad the tentacles weren't cut a long time ago. The best thing for Archer was Evan he was a godsend and the voice of reason, I loved him especially how he patiently stuck with Archer through it all and made him realize he could be happy and there was more to life than Vivian.

So did Archer deserve a second chance yes IMO because you know he will never fully recover or forget his terrible past. Highly recommended and pretty awesome in fact.
