Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Oh Oh Oh Oh !!!  I loved it!!!!  Need I say more?  Patch and Nora – what a great combination!  Throw in a bit of Vee, Rixon and Scott and you’ve got the key characters for another awesome book!  I absolutely LOVE the way the book ended again…  and I Hated it all at the same time!  Becca Fitzpatrick has a talent of bringing the story to a close and opening the next chapter in a blink of an eye.  It’s magical!  Ok If you’ve read some of my previous posts I was getting frustrated with reading a good book – get to the end only to learn that there’s another one of the way.  However, with Hush, Hush and Crescendo, I’m left feeling very satisfied with the ending and it really doesn’t bug me that there’s another book.  I’ll admit I’m dying to know more about The Tempest – but I’ll wait it out.

So…  a couple of things happen in this story, Ohh…  I don’t want to say too much about it so here’s the write-up from Becca Fitzpatrick’s websote:

“Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as 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 further Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline 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?”

Trust me – it’s awesome reading – so go for it!  Here’s the book trailer to go along with it:
