Genre: YA Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

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 farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line 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?

I am going to start with this books cover. It is so beautiful and really eye catching. I love the silver/bluish tone to this cover and with feather its very subtle but speaks volumes.

I had been anticipating Crescendo since last year when I finished Hush, Hush. So when my best friend (the postman lol) finally delivered to my copy I was so excited. When I started reading I did find it a little hard to get into. I had to re-read some parts because I forgot what happened the page before.However, within about 4 chapters I was loving. Crescendo was everything I imagined it to be and so much. It is full of turns and twists that I honestly didn't see coming.

The characters we grow to know and love in Hush, Hush are all back. We also get to see a couple of new characters. Nora and Patch relationship is rocky all through the book which really kept me on my toes as to what was going to happened next. Vee is also more involved in this book and I found myself starting to like her as I didn't really like her in Hush, Hush. Scott who was a childhood friend of Nora plays a big part and I found myself getting drawn deeper into the story when he appeared. Rixon who is the first book, returns in this one with a bigger role. And we get to read more about the Irish Man. In my head I could his Irish accent I made up. lol.

Crescendo, really has outdone Hush, Hush. It has answered so many questions left unanswered in Hush, Hush, mainly about Nora's Dad. It leave you hanging and begging and screaming for Tempest to be out so we can find out what happens next with Nora and Patch.

Becca has produced yet another amazing gothic tale. It is thrilling, captivating and takes on an emotional rollcoaster. LOVED IT.

Recommended to those you love a gothic tale full of twist and turns.
