Crescendo is one of those reads that completely sucker punches you. Hush, Hush ended on a high note, even if it was an elusive one. Even though the blurb gave full warning for what was coming, it still felt it came out of nowhere.

I read Crescendo with a mounting sense of foreboding and dread. But, this is a good thing. I rate books on their story, on the characters and the unforeseen developments. But the biggest and most important thing I rate a book on is how it makes me feel, if it makes me feel anything at all. Crescendo made me feel everything. I felt all the hurt and the highs, the laughs and the all-time lows.

Unlike Hush, Hush, Crescendo will leave you not with a warmy gooey feeling, but wanting to throw the book at the wall, get on the internet to find out exactly how long the wait will be before the next book is out. Once you have, pick Crescendo back up and put it down nicely. It isn't the books fault!

Superbly written, and if possible, better than the first.

Format: Paperback
Crescendo is the sequel to the very successful novel 'Hush Hush'. Patch and Nora's story continues but there are many unexpected twists and turns right from the onset. The plot line of Crescendo is completely different to that of Hush Hush which is good as many authors run dry after one really good novel and fair to come up with more interesting material.

Crescendo draws out some threads from Hush Hush and expands and develops them, the most prominent of which being the death of Nora's father. Was it really under 'normal' and 'human' circumstances? Was it possible that Patch was involved? Nora's quest to find out what happened to her dad and who killed him drives the plot of this novel. Unsurprisingly the fallen angels and the nephilim are heavily involved and we see the introduction of a new character: Scott. He's the loser childhood friend that Nora had forgotten about, but now he's transformed into a muscular, mysterious hunk. Ordinarily Nora would probably ignore Scott and his type, but the fact that Patch is telling her to stay away from him and that he seems to have so many secrets draws her to him. As Patch seems to draw closer to Nora's arch enemy Marcie Miller, things begin to hot up. People's relationships come under scrutiny and there are quite a lot of shocking moments when the truth is revealed. This book is easy to read and with the very exciting plot you'll just want to keep reading on and on.

There is only one thing about this book that I dislike and that is that Patch and Nora don't spend a lot of this novel together as a couple. In fact Patch isn't present in a lot of the novel, not physically at least, of course he's still on Nora's mind for nearly every second of the day.

After having read the first book, Hush Hush, I was so glad I had bought Crescendo at the same time otherwise I would have gone mad waiting for the post man to deliver it. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!! I love the story line of forbidden love between angel and human and Crescendo has twists and turns all over the place with a brilliant ending which had me shouting at the last page 'Nooooooooooo, you can't leave it there!!!' The third book 'Tempest' is not due out till Autumn 2011 - that's a whole year away!!!! If you enjoyed the 'Fallen' series you will love this too.

This series to me is the best YA I have read. The first and second were great and this does not disappoint. I am not one to give away the story line but this series is full of twists and turns. As for Patch, the main character. No one has a Patch on him. The last in the series does not disappoint either. I would fully recommend if you like fallen angels stories. Will read again and looks like it will be turned into a film.

Format: Hardcover
It's storyline is good with a lot of surprises for the reader. What actually made me love this book (and not the prequel) was the characters. In the previous book, the characters weren't so well described and their motives were so confusing, but in this books although you find yourself reconsider what lies in the heart of every character, their motives even though they may change ,are clear.
But the thing that made me adore this book is the realistic heroes. They may love each but not in the honeylike way ,"Oh,I can not live without you,etc", they consider their options and they make their own decisions. More surprisingly the main heroine is a strong and quite independent one ,something that can be said for the majority of the books that had been published aiming for the same audience as Crescendo. She may gets a lot of help sometimes like miracusly saved once but she remains independent and strong .And she tries not to be clinging to her love interest so much, makes her own mistakes and big ones.
The book is funny and tragic ,it can make you laugh aloud or swear along the heroine. I think it has succeeded one at least of its purposes.

Format: Hardcover
Sequel to Hush Hush, Crescendo is undeniably my most awaited book of the year. I'm pleased to say it is indeed worth the wait. Missing Patch was dreadful, so reading Crescendo felt like an indulgence - needless to say, I treasure this book!

Crescendo is a build up of everything in Hush Hush, only a whole lot more complicated. The complexity in Crescendo, including the surprising and sometimes jaw-dropping twists had me flipping the pages back and forth to re-read key parts of the plot. Compared to its predecessor, Crescendo has a lot more of these surprises, a fuller background story and a stronger mythology. I was thrown off balance by some turns I had not expected, but it is all amazingly well handled. I'm certain Tempest will answer some of these questions, just as Crescendo answered those from Hush Hush.

There are more fantastic characters in Crescendo too, and I'd highlight two I have had fun reading. Scott Parnell and Marcie Millar. Oh, I hate Marcie Millar alright - there's no use denying that. Her character develops more in Crescendo, and we understand a lot more as to how she came to be Nora's archenemy. At points I thought she was going to redeem herself, but she never does, and worse still, taunting Nora seems to be her regular past time. She is evil. I felt Nora's emotions about Marcie and Patch strongly, and I stubbornly refuse to like Marcie!

Now - Scott is a different case. Scotty the potty, how cute is that? He is an absolute delight of a character and I'm glad he's a strong presence in the book.No one can ever be better than Patch, but Scott does terribly well :) He's arrogant, but he seems quite unsure of himself, in a very very cute way - which makes him such a darling. Next to Patch, I am most looking forward to him in Tempest.
