Series: Hush, Hush #2
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. 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 (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's archenemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has 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 feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
Remember my last review where I said Nora was like Clary from TMI but a lot worse? YEAH! She's a lot worse in this book.
I will say that I did enjoy this. It was such a emotional roller coaster overall. It picks up after the ending in Hush, Hush. In this Nora and Patch's life get more complicated.
We got to know more about Nora's dad the the dark secrets which somehow tied to Patch's life.
Crescendo wasn't my favorite book out of the series. It would've been if it wasn't for Nora. Nora really bugged me. She was really whiny and annoying. She couldn't think and made irrational decisions. She was acted really stupid and a pain in the butt.
What wad good about this was the ending. It was something I did not expect. It was a major twist and after that cliff hanger, you definitely need the next book with you.
