Everything isn’t as it seems in Coldwater. That cute boy isn’t a boy at all. He’s a fallen angel turned guardian angel. And, the boy you knew as a little kid isn’t human. He’s Nephili. And, little Nora Grey’s life is a lot more complicated.
Becca Fitzpatrick’s Crescendo is a page turner. We’re still learning about the Book of Enoch and the Nephilium. In this installment, we learn that there is a pending conflict between the fallen angels and the Nephilium. And, there is also a conflict between Nora and Patch.
Hope would have summed up Book One in this series. Misery is the one word summation for Crescendo. Circumstances leave Nora and Patch miserable. A new character, Scott Parnell, is a tortured individual. You start out not liking him only to feel pity for him by the end of the story.
A crescendo is a steady increase in force or intensity. The crescendo in this installment is a shocker involving Marcie Millar, Nora’s enemy, and her dad.
Fitzpatrick adds suspense to the story of Nora and Patch. If you’re looking for a happily ever after, you’ll have to keep reading. Those types of endings are seldom found in the dark.
