Book Review: Crescendo


Crescendo
Author:  Becca Fitzpatrick
Publish Date: Oct 2010
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
(From GoodReads)

Crescendo picks up where Hush Hush left off. The reader is tossed into the love of Patch and Nora. Or, what should have been love. 

Nothing changes in our characters and I think this is part of the problem. Nora still trusts Patch unquestionably, but he won’t her. In fact he’s a total ass in this book and I nearly put it down several times because of his attitude. I can’t blame Nora at all for her responses to him. She did what I believe any woman would have done in her shoes. 

For all the hate I have for Patch in this book it does progress through the story rather quickly. I hadn’t expected the twists and turns the story took and it was a pleasant surprise. What bothers me most is one action from Patch in the right direction and this story wouldn’t have taken place. IF he had just provided the truth from the start everything that happened here, wouldn’t have happened. Or at least not in the form that it did. 

This series is still a must read for anyone that likes the fallen angels. I would definitely recommend it if you haven’t read it yet.
