Review: Crescendo by Becca FitzPatrick

Taken from GoodReads
The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush! Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

Becca Fitzpatrick really knows how to get under your skin and bring out all sorts of emotions with her writing. If you thought Hush Hush was good, wait until you read Crescendo.

In Crescendo, Nora learns a little more about what blood runs in her veins, and who her father really is. She discovers a lot of things about herself and the people around her. Nora makes a lot of decisions that will make you angry and love her at the same time. She does not know who she can trust anymore, even the love of her life.

Nora and Patch go through so many different emotions and drama in Crescendo that they don't know whether they should be together, or just go their separate ways.

I am sitting here wanting more! I absolutely love this book! So many times (Just like with Hush, Hush) I thought I knew what was going to happen and where the story was going, only I was way off. I love all the twists and mysteries in this book. You can't help but be glued to it. There is never a boring moment in Crescendo, every single chapter has something going on. I actually got butterflies and goosebumps while reading this book. The ending was just amazing and I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I just have to know what happens.

I am in WOW with this book, and I think I might have to just re-read Hush Hush and Crescendo again. And that is big for me, since I NEVER re-read books. :-) A MUST, MUST, MUST READ!

  5. Keep an eye out we will be doing a give away with Crescendo. I just have to share this book with someone else!!!!!

  12. Two months...I can survive waiting two months, right?!!! *sigh*

  13. They were good books. I just wish she had done more research on Maine (like gotten a map) or made up towns and businesses instead. If one uses places that exist versus towns/businesses that are made up, one should be a least a little accurate. Kind of ruined it for me and friends who read it.

  14. I have Hush Hush and Crescendo in my TBR pile and can't wait to get to them. Thanks for the review. Sounds great!!
