Hush, Hush vs. Twilight

Perhaps the biggest phenomenon right now, in terms of novels (and movies) for young ones (and the young at heart) is the Twilight series. If you've read the novel or watched the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I'm not going into the details on why I think this series is so popular. I mean who can resist a mysterious immortal falling in love with a damsel in distress (who happens to be a mortal)?

But there's another novel right now that's being talked about, and that is Hush, Hush. It's like Twilight in the sense that the male character is also an immortal (although he is a fallen angel, not a vampire) and the female character is a mortal who happens to be in danger all the time (much like Bella). But then again, there's more to Hush, Hush than being another Twilight copycat.

This hub provides a rundown of the similarities and differences between these two novels. Suffice it to say that it cannot be denied that the two are similar in certain cases. However, they also have their differences and these differences, without a doubt, make each one of them special in their own way. Hope you enjoy reading this hub as I enjoyed reading the two books. Thanks!
