Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) - Becca Fitzpatrick
5 Big ol’ Mega Stars

I don’t think I have ever been so tongue tied before… What can I say about Crescendo that hasn’t been said before…Not much; that I know for sure.

BF did an excellent job! Although Crescendo lacked the witty humor of Hush, Hush. BF did an excellent job of weaving a plot that had me on the edge of my seat gasping aloud from cover to end.

Many have compared Crescendo to the blending of SM’s Twilight and Breaking Dawn. I must be lacking in imagination because I don’t make the same connection. However if the connection is that both author’s writing skill improves and the character gain more depth as they trek forward… then that comparison could be made to a lot of authors.

A rock must have fell from the heavens and hit me square on the head and I forgot. This was my second reading of Crescendo and I couldn’t believe that I had forgotten 98% of the book. So, it was as if I was reading it again for the first time. Not only did I love it. My daughter Macy enjoyed it as well.

I do however have mixed emotions… not sure if it is from mixed emotions or lack of sleep but I am having trouble pulling the entire plot together. Why does the sacrifice have to be Nora? After all, we learn that Hank Miller is Nora father as well as Marcie Miller. It must have something to do with the “birth mark” that a Nora sports that is similar to Patch’s. Somehow, Nora must have more Nephilim blood than Marcie Miller does.

A roller coaster of emotions will have have you up, down, and everywhere in between with so many twist and turns you can hardly stay in your seat. A must read puzzle that will have you hooked and on the edge of your seat in the end and wanting more.
