Crescendo [Review]

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)

#2 in series
427 pages [Hardcover]
Published 1 January 2010

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 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 Patch hadnt 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 desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

My Thoughts:
I didn't think it was possible to love Patch's character more...but it happened.

In this installment, a new character, Scott, comes back to town. We see much more Marcie Miller, that evil twat. Plus not only do Nora and Patch break up, but Vee starts dating Rixon. More of the story of Nora's dad's murder is told and there is also a little more background story as far as fallen angels and the Nephilim. While usually the 2nd books in trilogies tend to be fillers and kind of boring, this one was packed full of stuff. Nora gets drugged, attacked, and even gets in a fist fight.

I typically hate huge cliffhangers at the end of books, but this was one was probably the most well-written cliffhanger I've read to date.

Is this a two part series, or are there more parts?
