Book Review: Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finale (Hush, Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: October 23, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Will love conquer all?

Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.

But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.

As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for.

Finale is the fourth and final book in the Hush, Hush Saga by Becca Fitzpatrick. This one had some twists and surprises, that's for sure. Some I saw coming, but not all. Nora is figuring her way as the new Nephilim leader. I think she handles things quite well considering. And Patch?

“You dress to impress," I said approvingly.
"No, Angel." He leaned in, his teeth softly grazing my ear. "I undress to impress.” 

Need I say more?

 I enjoyed some of the supporting characters more in this book too. For example, Vee never fully grew on me until this book. Now, I can't see the series without her. This one had some twists and surprises, that's for sure. Some I saw coming, but not all. Finale was full of drama complete with giggles and tears. I'm sad to see the ending to this saga, but I'm very happy with the resolutions. We got our questions answered, and everything was tied up nicely.

“Did you know, the first time I saw you, I thought: I’ve never seen anything more captivating and beautiful?”

“Why are you telling me this?” I said miserably.

“I saw you, and I wanted to be close to you. I wanted you to let me in. I wanted to know you in a way no one else did. I wanted you, all of you. That wanting nearly drove me mad.” Patch paused, inhaling softly, as though breathing me in. “And now that I have you, the only thing that terrifies me is having to go back to that place. Having to want you all over again, with no hope of my desire ever being fulfilled. You’re mine, Angel. Every last piece of you. I won’t let anything change that.”
