Crescendo is the PERFECT sequel to Hush, Hush. The darkness that surrounds it pulls you in at every page turn. Nora becomes a bit more independent, but not so much that she completely puts Patch out of the picture. The love between the two is so high tension, so real that you are cheering for Patch and at the same time hating him. With each clue to the plot you keep guessing, and then Fitzpatrick just throws another curve ball, once you think you have the answer. Everything is unfolding, and the cliffhanger is killer at the end.
I absolutely love Fitzpatrick's writing. It flows well and is written so smoothly that it is easy to read, easy to follow. The pacing is perfect, when the plot thickens you don't want to close the book and wait to finish. Very, very well done. And I'm excited for SILENCE.
