This is the sequel to Hush, Hush. Don’t worry – no spoilers below!
GoodReads blurb: 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.
Crescendo is the perfect thrilling sequel to Hush, Hush. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as Hush, Hush but I feel that is at the fault of myself.
The reason I didn’t like this book as much as Hush, Hush is probably because I had forgotten a lot of things that had previously happened and needed a bit of a memory jogger. If you are reading the Hush, Hush series I definitely recommend you read them close together.
But aside from that, I really loved it. There are a couple of twists in this book which I had not seen coming and definitely made reading it more worthwhile. Let me tell you, that ending was one of my favourites for a long time (I love cliffhangers!) so I can’t wait to read Silence!
If you haven’t yet picked up this series, then please do. Do not be completely put off by any negative reviews of Hush, Hush, just take them into consideration.
