The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline 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?
I was extremely disappointed by this book. I loved the first book Hush, Hush but this book was hard to get into and I actually stopped reading it several times and opted to read another book. I finally pushed through with much difficulty and the last half almost last fourth of the book were great however the last part was not amazing enough to balance out the disappointing roller coaster of a beginning. The plot was good with lots of twists like a good mystery. There was not a lot evident character development other than Nora learning to trust Patch and Patch learning what true love really is. Scott grows allot as well, in many different ways although he still has a lot of unresolved problems. Also, I found that Becca re-used some potential climactic scenes in Crescendo such as (kind of spoiler alert nothing really big or important) some one (see not naming names here) traps Nora (sorry) in the library again like in Hush, Hush. Overall this book just was not impressive to me and I had an extremely difficult time getting into it and getting to the good parts. This book gets a 2 1/2 stars from me.
