Book Review ~ Crescendo

Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2)
By Becca Fitzpatrick
Published By Simon & Schuster

Summary (Goodreads): 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 Patch 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.

My Thoughts: While I liked the overall pace and action of the story the character change of Nora was odd. The one thing I liked in the first book was that she wasn't your typical teenager falling all over the new hot guy. This book starts a few months later and suddenly she's a clingy obsessed girlfriend who cannot think for herself. She got a little better towards the end of the book but still seemed to be doing things on the fly without really thinking about them. While her relationship with Patch was on/off throughout the story I do still like these two together.  I also liked the changes in Vee, I remember thinking in the first book how can these two be friends. This character seemed more in line with what you would expect from the friendship they are supposed to have.  The ending definitely left me with more questions than answers and I am looking forward to the next book.

Rating: 3.5
