Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon and Schuster BFYR
Goodreads Summary: 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.
Rating: 5 Stars
Review: Wow. Crescendo was a direct continuation of Hush, Hush, and like the title, things really start to escalate and get interesting.
Nora's like spirals downward when Patch is spending more time with her sworn enemy, Marcie Millar. She starts to receive scary threats, and puts her like on the line to find the truth.
Becca Fitzpatrick expertly conceals various facts in her writing, challenging readers to find them, then revealing them later.
Patch hasn't changed much, but Nora feels betrayed when he hides so much about her. A few new characters bring a real twist to the plotline, and Nora is betrayed by her closest friends, instead finding allies in unlikely places. Becca Fitzpatrick is amazing, and her writing is so, so addictive.
