Ahoy, there!

Muggle-Born.net is a blog mostly on young adult book reviews. My name is Cialina, and I am a college student living in New York City. I love Harry Potter, coffee, and bookstores.

CRESCENDO by Becca Fitzpatrick Book Review
Series: Hush, Hush, #2
Publication Date: October 19th 2010 by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing
Rating: StarStarStar

Summary: 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 hadn’t 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.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick Book Review Overview:

  • Nora was a bit irritating but Patch was such a jerk
  • Surprises along the way
  • Raised a lot of questions about the whole angel / Nephilim conflict but manages to resolve most of my questions
  • Ended in a big cliffhanger that ruined the novel’s resolution; disappointing end
  • Still exceeded expectations

I was a bit hesitant even before I started reading this book. While there were a lot of great reviews for CRESCENDO, I have a bad experience with sequels, especially when they fall under the paranormal genre. But I wanted to make a decision for myself whether or not I liked the book, and I tried my best to read without any opinions clouding my judgment.

Why is it that the right people never wind up together? Why are people so afraid to leave a relationship, even if they know it's a bad one?
