“Crescendo” by Becca Fitzpatrick

Back of the Book:

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.

Mitsuko’s Review on

The Hush, Hush series is the only YA paranormal romance series that I will continue reading to the end, even though the books are TERRIBLE. What keeps me reading? Pure masochism and let’s face it: these books are hilarious. Plus now I found a character to cheer for. (read the entire review here)

[xrr rating=1.5/5]

The very worst thing about this book is Nora’s constant whining. She bounces back and forth between guys again, and does the lame “investigator” thing again. Seriously? Come on, Nora, you’re a spoiled little brat, not a detective!

The very best thing about this book is the cover? Maybe… Or maybe the font used for the title. Eh, let’s just say “the bad guy” and get it over with. I will say that I wasn’t really expecting it.


This book will be placed under the 2011 E-Book Reading Challenge, the 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge, and the iChallenges 2011.
