Book Review- Crescendo by Becca Roberts Fitzpatrick


Title: Crescendo
Author: Becca Roberts Fitzpatrick
Release Date: 19th of October 2010
Genre: Paranormal YA Novel
Blurb: "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. But Patch has been acting anything but angelic lately. 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, and old family friend who's moved back to town, if Patch hadn't 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 in increasingly dangerous situations as she searches for answers. But some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything- and everyone- she trusts."
Rating: 8/10 Definately worth reading,
Review: The greatly anticipated sequel to "Hush Hush" I must say has not disappointed. The mind boggling storyline has you guessing from the very begining, "why is he doing that?", "who is behind that?" Only to be thrown at the end by a completely unexpected turn of events that has you thinking "why on earth did I not see this coming?"
During the first three quarters of the book you may find yourself silently screaming at Nora for being a self pitying, spineless, immature little brat as I did, which if I may add was so frustrating to read. She drove me crazy! Mix this with Patch and his lack of being able to say how he feels, Marcie and her annoying taunting and bullying and Scott with his beefhead attitude you have a serious mixture of rival personalities and the heated emotions of raging teenage hormones.
Not wanting to throw you off reading this book, it really is a great. One I would definately recommend if you are into this genre and of course if you loved "Hush Hush".
Is there another sequel? Yes!
"Silence" is due to be released on the 4th of October 2011. With thanks to Becca's official fansite www.fallenarchangel.com this is what she had to say about third installment. " The noise between Patch and Nora is gone in this book. They've overcome the secrets riddles in Patch's dark past... bridged two irreconcilable worlds... faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust... and all for a love that will transcend the boudary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for and their love forever".
If you haven't read "Hush Hush" yet you don't know what you are missing. The sequel is even better!
