For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her…until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life

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?
First of all I have to thank FallenArchangel.com for giving me a sneak peek at the ARC of Crescendo….Which may I say was incredible! I stayed up way past my bedtime with my little night light the same day I got it in the mail and read the 400+pages in less than 24 hours. It’s one of those series you will not be able to put down once you start, and then you’ll be hooked on Patch like the rest of us.
The book picks up right after the last scene in Hush, Hush and Patch has been assigned as Nora’s guardian Angel. Their relationship is full-speed ahead. Enter visions of the murder of Nora’s father, Marcie Millar her arch nemesis and a childhood friend gone bad Scott Parnell. Things are about to get complicated. Suddenly Patch is hanging out with Marcie way more than normal, Nora is plagued by dreams of the past and her best friend Vee is dating Patch’s best friend Rixon.
What I love about Becca Fitzpatrick is that she adds so many twists and turns to the plot you have no idea who is good and who is bad. Crescendo fleshes out more of the history behind Nora’s family and the archangels. Readers spend the whole time trying to help unravel the mystery behind what really killed Nora’s dad and what in the world is going on! The ending is a literal roller coaster, action packed thrill ride. And when the dust settles and you think all is peaceful…think again.
GO GET THIS BOOK NOW! 5 stars to a heart stopping adventure with plenty of surprises. Happy Book Birthday Becca Fitzpatrick! Be sure to stop by The Story Siren today to see Becca reading a cookie leading up to her favorite scene.
