Whitney’s Five Star Review
** Please note that this review does not contain spoilers for Hush. However, if you have not started the series, there may be spoilers from the other books. **
Now that my warning is out of the way, let’s move on the important things. WHO IS ON THE DANG AIRPLANE?!?! —> This is the question plaguing me (and all E.K. Blair fans) since the end of Echo. I’m not going to ruin it for you but rest easy because we find out pretty much immediately who our mystery person is and this person really sets the tone for the rest of the book.
And of course because of that, I really can’t go into details about the plot. This is definitely a book you have to experience with as little knowledge of the story going in as possible. The whole series really.
I never figured this series would have a traditional happy ending as The Black Lotus books are not what I would classify as romance. There’s a love story to be sure but the focus is really on Elizabeth and her past and specifically her thirst for revenge. This is probably the darkest series I have ever read and I’ve loved every twisted second of it. All I wanted was for Elizabeth to come to some realization that she is worth loving and for her to begin to heal from her past. Of course with the way this series has gone, that’s a pretty tall order.
I will say I got what I wanted in some form or fashion and despite the book totally destroying me, I am happy with the ending and felt it fit with the rest of the series. The irony is really pretty perfect.
When I reflect on this series, I think the biggest applause I can give E.K. Blair is that she took characters that are essentially pretty unlikeable, made me sympathize with them and them wove a story that still drew me in and kept me wanting more. Elizabeth is not your typical heroine in any way, shape or form. And Declan is a good guy but his relationship with Elizabeth really did kind of ruin him. Whether that’s a good thing or bad thing is probably debatable. But what isn’t debatable is their love. It’s ugly, it’s passionate, it’s not always healthy but it’s there.
So for me, I wanted Hush to allow these characters to fully love each other despite the past and their obstacles. But… you’ll have to read and see for yourself whether that happens or not.
