Time with Nora's archenemy Marcie MillarNora 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 somethingIf that weren't enough Nora is hau Actually in love with this book Just read it in a dayI cannot describe how much i adore it though i have to say its my favourite one i've ever readGot this off yesterday and i started reading and was hooked i had to go out that night and slept out and all i could think about was the book it was that capturing I started reading it this morning and finished this afternoonA Billion times better than hush hush the author did an amazing job can't wait for the next one what a cliff hanger it was left on Only problem was i was screaming at nora throughout i missed patch a hell of a lot So many secrets and different plots its an amazing read I'm starting reading it again as well i'm that hooked5 stars LOVED LOVED LOVED IT

MOBI Crescendo

CrescendoNted by images of her murdered father and comes to uestion 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 trust Sometimes if you're really lucky a book will teach you a lesson or give you something valuable you can carry with you through your entire life Crescendo gave me an unexpected gift although lesson might be too generous a term It's a sort of 'I've been through this so that can't possibly be as bad' I am no longer afraid of childbirth or other really painful experiences but specifically childbirth because I know that the pain of labor does not usually add up to the amount of hours I spent with Crescendo Also I'll have drugs to get me through it which might have been the only thing that would have made Crescendo a pleasant experienceOften the second book in a YA trilogy will feel like a filler between novel one and novel three You usually get to see what it's like when the honeymoon is over so that in book three you can get some sort of affirmation that the characters are indeed soul mates because they made it through all of that and then someFor Nora and Patch the honeymoon is indeed over Nora tells Patch she loves him He is less than responsive to her delightful confession I'm sorry but why are things like this seen as confessions? In the last book she'd been willing to sacrifice herself to give him a chance of what he wanted most a life as a human Obviously she loves him We get it He gave up the chance at humanity because being human wasn't worth anything without her Obviously he loves her We get it I think these confessional moments come from trying to pace what is supposed to be an extraordinary relationship against social norms and rites of passage because the author loses track of the story's pacing Fitzpatrick is not the only one guilty of this but it does make Nora look dimmer than a two watt light bulb to fuss over the word loveThe inevitable fall out of Patch not telling Nora he loves her back with roses and fanfare you know fanfare than him sacrificing what he wanted most for her is that she breaks up with him Nora does it mostly out of childish spite because he isn't telling her SECRETS and he doesn't really love herTheir break up could have been done without It was just stupid and confusing Nora can't decide why they're broken up At one point when they're almost back together Patch tells her that he's going to have go on the run and hide from the archangels because they're going to put him in hell for loving her Nora walks away rather than risking his soul but for the rest of the book she wibbles back and forth about the reasons why they're over Is it because he's keeping secrets from her or because she doesn't want to risk sending him to burn in hell? Later she wants him to burn in hell but she doesn't want anyone else's help accomplishing it Fuck the archangels she's putting him in hell herselfAlso my what the fuck moment with all of this Fallen angels routinely mistreat humans and their half human offspring They torture and kill people Patch was going to murder Nora and get a human soul as a reward for all his effort That was all okie dokie The straw that breaks the camels back here the freaking thing that will send him to hell is loving her?Imagine a bunch of archangels chilling in a conference room discussing the matter What do we do about angels who disobey and fall from heaven? Let the fallen angels keep their immortality as punishment muwahahaWhile they're down there should we let them torture people? Yeah that's totally within acceptable standards Okay what about killing people? Should we let them kill people without conseuence? Personally I think they should get a gold star and a human body for that Agreed agreed But what about falling in love? BURN IN HELLWhat a great way to make the romance forbidden Look I get that Angels are not supposed to love humans that this is the big no no for this particular supernatural creature but it seems a little stupid for the archangels to let the fallen angels run rampant and then lose their shit and play the hell card over thisOther major plot points in no particular order aside from what struck me as totally ridiculousSo Nora's not her father's biological child but the entire plot of the first book is based on her being her father's child and having some very specific nephilim blood in her that makes her an acceptable sacrifice in exchange for Patch's soul How does Fitzpatrick fix this gaping plot hole? She makes her biological father and adoptive father distantly related on the nephilim wave length Okay I can tentatively accept this if I stop using 23s of my brain Goodbye 23rds you will be missed when I have to tie my shoes tomorrow morning Guys I could have lived without those 23s but Fitzpatrick greedily tries to tax me another 13 by giving this explanation for Nora's adoption her biological father gave her and her mother it's so sad I'm not even worked up about this giving business to her adoptive father to protect her from angels who might want to sacrifice her as the female child of a nephilimThat's right Both men are nephilim Granted her biological father is MUCH nephilim than her adoptive father but apparently her adoptive father was not human enough to have kept Nora safe from Patch in Hush Hush because Patch wanted to kill her on the basis of being her adoptive father's child or at least that's how it was explained in the first novel It's disgustingly complicated and stupid It was clearly NOT the intentions with which the first book was written This entire subplot about who is really Nora's daddy is about extending what should have just been a stand alone into a trilogy Milk that money making cowThere's a scene where NoraDrew and Vee are breaking into a character's bedroom to find out all his mysterious secrets and sniff his laundry Nora always comments on laundry when she's busting into someone's house undercover In the scene before it Nora instructs Vee to park behind some shrubs Vee expresses the concern that the car will not make it over a ditch to get to said shrubs Nora insists and Vee does it Her car gets stuck in the ditch They move the car back and forth until they flatten one of the tires on a rock Without a tidy getaway car Nora still decides to go through with the plan I assumed the fact that the car was totally disabled would become part of the plot of the scene like their hasty escape is thwarted by the car but NOPE Despite all the time Fitzpatrick spends discussing the position of the car the moving of the car and the fact that the car is stuck the entire conclusion was calling Triple A later in a throwaway sentence At this point I was rocking myself in a corner trying not to stomp my nook into rubbleSpeaking of Vee all the fat jokes in the novel started to piss me off We get that Vee is heavy Vee don't need her to suggest food at every turn to reinforce it If Nora eats one donut Vee eats twelve and the polishes off Nora's leftover one while Nora is outside being flirted with boy of the moment More examples include Vee insists on stopping for hot dogs before they go on their NoraDrew mission This scene is there so Nora can complain about the grease and chemicals and Vee can swoon over the courage endorphins she supposedly gets from them Again Nora's food goes uneaten or consumed by someone else In that same scene Nora demands Vee chase down a car a uarter of a mile The car arrives at the location the boy gets upstairs and inside he has an entire conversation with Nora Nora goes downstairs and Vee is still standing by the curb wheezing For the love of god we get it Vee is fat and Nora is slender as a toothpick Skinny euates good pretty worthwhile and every other characteristic you want Nora to haveWhenever Marcie the book's mean girl has a negative comment to make about Nora it's usually not actually about Nora Marcie routinely calls Vee fat while fighting with Nora as if this somehow negatively reflects upon Nora If you ask me it only negatively reflects on Marcie Marcie's first scorching remark is that Nora's father's dead I don't even know how I can begin to explain that this is not an insult My father died when I was a teenager and if someone had told me my dad was dead as an insult I'm not sure I even would have comprehended they were trying to insult me If you want to use a dead father as a joke you should say he had a heart attack while in a cheap motel with an even cheaper hooker Nora is too perfect to insult The only thing repeated through the book is that she studies too muchI could go on and on about everything that was wrong or crappy about this book but I'm not going to continue subjecting myself to itI read this book despite having disliked Hush Hush because of a blog post the author wrote about negative reviews coming back to haunt the person writing them The book was bad and I'm not going to be intimidated out of telling people exactly why
