Book Review Thursday

crescendo is the second installment in the hush, hush saga by Becca Fitzpatrick. Yes, the titles are purposely lower case. This saga had me captivated from the first page. I wasn't sure where Fitzpatrick was going to go with crescendo but I can tell you I loved it. It was very difficult to set down. I loved the world she created, the characters, the mood, everything about it. Fitzpatrick is a wonderful storyteller that can weave you right in with her characters. Take a look at it and let me know what you think!

Here's the blurb about crescendo that Fitzpatrick wrote.

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?
