Book Review: Crescendo 🖤





Author: Becca Fitzpatrick.

Publisher:  Simon and Schuster.

Pages: 427.


The second book in the breathtaking New York Timesbestselling Hush, Hush saga, soon to be a major motion picture!

Nora should have known her life wouldn’t stay perfect for long. Despite starting a relationship with her bad boy guardian angel, Patch, 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 starting to become 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 when she has a guardian angel. Since Patch isn’t answering her questions, she has to start finding the answers on her own. But when she finds them, will she be able to count on Patch or are the things he’s hiding from her darker than she can imagine?

In this second installment, Nora sees that Patch is distancing itself. Is it because of the “I love You” she told her without getting an answer? Or why is Marcie Millar taking all her weapons to conquer her angel? For more inri, someone wants to kill her, and she has all the looks of being the same person who murdered her father. When you realize you’re still living among secrets, who can you trust?

The plot continues to wind up more and more, I do not mean the typical sagas that are lengthened because yes; But where I thought there would be nothing, Becca Fitzpatrick has drawn a very, very disturbing subplot.

We will meet a new character named Scott, who… Meh. Neither Fu nor FA. It is true that it brings to the story, more mystery and so on, but hey, it doesn’t stay for the memory.

This book focuses more on the paranormal and the mysterious: Archangels and Fallen Angels, Patch and its history and everything.

It shows the improvement of the author as far as writing is concerned. He no longer uses so many dialogues and starts to describe a lot more, which helps us to create a better reference of what is happening at any time and as Becca Fitzpatrick writes very pleasantly, it is not thick at all.



The end was not expected at all. The Hush Hush was predictable, but this… Not even far. I’m even more anxious to read silence.
