Review of Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
This is a great sequel to Hush, Hush (link to my review of the first book in series here) and is definitely a must read for any paranormal romance fan. Nora has to make what is the hardest decision for her and any girl in her situation- she has to choose to let Patch go- the one she loves the most- in order to keep him. If she gives into getting him back now and being with him now, it will just be a short taste of pleasure with him and she may lose him forever. No more touch and go which is killing her.
She cannot lose him. She loves him more than anything. But does he know something else that could change everything? Why does he seem to lose hope?
She still feels like she is the dark. More trouble comes to their relationship. She suspects Patch may be hiding even more from her than she had thought. What would happen if you suspected the one you love the most to actually be totally untrustworthy? Nora has to deal with this horrifying question, but even more so,with the added dimension of angels and their enemies. Nora has to decide what to do when she suspects the one who is supposed to be her protector and lover of having somewhat darker motives.
What will Nora decide? Will she break the ties with Patch, thinking this will protect her? Or will she have the hope that she could then be with him someday? If that is even a safe choice anymore?
What Nora fears the most and what she doesn’t want to happen ends up being the very thing that very well may happen. We, as the readers, also cringe, having this as the last thing we want to happen as well.
There will be many twists and turns at the end that will also leave you eager for the just released third book of the saga (there will be a fourth book too!) – Silence– review to come soon! Please sign up for email updates at the top right to get the latest!
I would love to hear your thoughts on these books so far (no spoilers please for other readers 😉 I found myself definitely relating to many aspects of Nora and Patch’s love story. How about you? What parts do you relate to? What parts did you hate? What other novels do you think compare to this one- which other similar novels would you recommend? With Halloween fast approaching, I plan to do a mini-series on supernatural type novels, so please comment below with your suggestions! I always love to hear other readers and writers opinions, so if you comment, you just might make my day! 😉
