Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Rating: 4 Stars!
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. 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, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt 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 increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.~Goodreads
*Sings* ♫Then he struck you a crescendo Annie♫ sorry every time I see this book I sing that!
Any whoo- where do I even begin? Oh that’s right- I HATE Marcie Millar. Just when I thought I couldn’t like her any less she takes up all my patience in Crescendo. IF you didn’t like her in the first book, brace yourself; she is back and ten times more bitchy and rude. She is also in the book way too much for my liking.
Nora, I still love her. I understand why she acted the way she did. Sure some of her decisions were a little premature but I give her credit for sticking with them. Plus she gets in a fight with Marcie…so we koo (slang for cool? Is that form of cool actually not cool?)
The reason for Nora’s problems, one word….Patch! Why do I want to slap him and kiss him at the same time? The boy is entirely to irresistible for his own good. All I am going to say is that at the end of the day Patch is a guy…a very stupid & userish type of guy…but none the less sexy. If that’s wrong…then I dot not want to be right! Plus we find out his real name! *swoons!*
This book doesn’t have as much action as the last, but there is still enough to keep you on edge! With the introduction of new characters, problems with old characters, romance troubles & crazy revelations this book definitely lives up to the first one!
Oh yes! & look out for the HORRIBLY WONDERFUL CLIFFY! AHHH!
P.S. (NOW STANDS FOR PATCH SEXINESS) I CANNOT wait for the last installment in the series, SILENCE in stores October 4th, 2011! Talk about a treat!
(Get it, because it's close to Halloween, and there is candy‘n stuff and people say “trick-or-treat”. I’m sure you got it… okay umm…thanks for reading this review! Comment!…or not?)
