Thank you @skyhorsepub for sending this book my way in exchange for an honest review! . The Hush is a unique, musical fantasy novel where Music is both a powerful tool and a potential weapon; those found using music to practise sorcery without a license are condemned to death. Chester Hayes finds h...

This was the Hush. Its rain was not water, but shadow: a rain of leftover sorcery * * * * .5 4.5 / 5 There are two things that I loved about The Hush: first, it's essentially a group teen heist novel (think more YA Six of Crows), which I didn't know when I picked it up, and secondly, the idea of th...

4 Stars. The Hush is a imaginative, engaging and enthralling fantasy, with elements of suspense and science fiction. Skye is one of my favourite authors, she creates vivid worlds in which readers can fully immerse themselves, likable characters and is an advocate for creating strong, but flawed he...

Woooooow this book was super good! Music + magic. Two of my favourite things, and both together in the same book. And what's cooler, the Music makes the magic! Such an awesome idea. I also like the (view spoiler)[lack of romance, the way it wasn't the whole focus of the book. (hide spoiler)] It was definitely more family-orien...

Aaaaand here is yet another severely underrated novel from an Australian author! Skye Melki-Wegner has created yet another book with a fantastic world, great characters, a unique magic system and an action-filled plot. The magic system is quite a creative one: the use of music to produce magic and...

"Sometimes I think true strength is admitting when you're vulnerable." Aww what a beautiful cover and story :)

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. In THE HUSH, there’s music and there’s Music. One is magical, there other isn’t. Untrained Musicians (capital M) are considered blasphemers. They are hunted down and executed since the only people that should harness the Song are Songshapers. So much of...

It's always an exciting thing when a book catches you by surprise in a totally unexpected way. I didn't expect a thing from The Hush; in fact, I'm trying to make my way through the books I am behind on quickly, and I was prepared to DNF this one. Instead, I found myself enraptured by like page te...

I didn't really know what to expect when I picked up this book, but I think it deserves a solid 3 stars for originality. Magic in this world is created by songs, music and rhythms which is something I've never seen before. I have no musical knowledge, but it was explained simply enough to follow,...

This was unexpected. I fell headfirst int this novel and whenever I surfaced, I felt lost. Melki-Wegner has crafted some of the most spectacular world-building I've come across in a long while. The magic system is based on music, but it's a lot more than what it first appears. I really wanted to...
