Archer would do anything for his best friend, Vivian. But then Evan arrives in town and, for the first time, Archer begins to question the hold that Vivian has over him.

Hushed is a tense novel that will have its readers hooked from the opening pages right through to its conclusion. It presents themes of love and loyalty and explores the aftermath of trauma and the choice to follow a particular path. Indeed, I came away from the book feeling almost uplifted; for every depressing or sordid occurrence, there is a helping of love or hope. The thing that really makes Hushed is the artful depiction of its protagonist, Archer.

If someone were to tell me about a book with a loveable murderer, I would scoff, but that is exactly what Kelley York has produced. In contrast, Vivian is very difficult to like. Although we are given reasons for her behaviour, we are also shown that there were other paths that she could have followed.

There is just something about her character that made me wary from the start. She is cleverly described as just the sort of person who possesses that kind of hold over people.

Evan is sugar where Vivian is poison. He is perfectly understanding, perfectly devoted… and fairly perfect all round, for that matter. The romance here is very nicely done, with little focus on the genders of the people involved.

While there is definitely a place in YA literature for tales of coming out and the establishment of sexual identity, I think they tend to dominate the market more than they should. It was refreshing to read a book where the romance plays out much as it would with a heterosexual couple, but without ignoring the social implications of a same sex romance.

As mentioned, some of the content in Hushed is quite dark, and I would recommend it to readers from the late teens upwards. While the main characters are in their first year of university, I think that the plot and execution of the novel will endear it to adult readers as well. An engrossing and though-provoking read.

The harder he falls for Evan, the more Archer sees Vivian for the manipulative hot-mess she really is. Hushed is a book like none other I have ever read. It features a main character that has done some pretty despicable things, but … that you cannot help but care for, on some level. Archer kills people in the belief that it will set his friend, Vivian, free from her tortured past. And then Evan comes along. Oh, Evan.

From the start, the story sucks you in and it had me on the edge of my seat. Evan could see the good in Archer and, in turn, Archer wanted to become a better person because of Evan. I really loved their moments together, right from the start. It was so emotionally destructive.
