Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick
It picks up from when Nora sweared to lead Black hand's army and the war between the nephilim and fallen angels is reaching its climax. She is really torn; on one hand, she wants to help Patch and stay loyal to him, and on the other side she is sympathetic to the nephilim and wants to free them. I felt for her as its a really hard dilemma. She is also training with Dante and, then there is Pepper who has his own agenda and wants something with Patch. Their problems just keep piling up.
I have always liked Nora and this was no exception. She continues to grow more independent and stronger and starts looking after herself. Patch, oh Patch! "swoon" He is such a sweetheart. He is hot and funny and sexy, but he is sooo loving too. He cares for Nora so much and is always looking after her. They are going strong in this but as always they do have a couple hurdles along the way. The romance in this book is scorching hot and steamy and no one can possibly doubt their love for each other.
Scott is my second favourite character in this book (after Patch) so i loved reading his part but felt a lack of him in the first half of the book. He is sooo funny and his and Nora's relationship is so cute. I love their playful friendship and craved more of their scenes. Vee has been a roller coaster ride for me - i didnt like her, then i liked her, then i dint like her again - but i officially do now! Marcie is herslef but you see a different side to her as well. I almost liked her at some points. I was never a fan of Dante and found him really annoying, and felt he was too much in this. Detective Basso is also one of my absolute favourites! Unfortunately, he is hardly in this, but does serve a massive purpose in the story and we finally see his connection to all this. He deserves spin of!
The plot has lots going on with twists and turn and revelations and lots of different things that all link together. It has tons of action but tons of drama too. The final showdown is EPIC and all the loose strings are tied! Lots of deaths too and one of them made me cry a bucket :( The conclusion is great and i loved the ending. The last scene made me laugh.
Its a bittersweet feeling when you finish one of your all time fav series of books. I adore all these characters and will miss reading about them so much. Every fan of Hush hush series has got to read this.
Lastly, he's one of my fav quotes from the book:
“You dress to impress,” I said approvingly.
“No, Angel.” He leaned in, his teeth softly grazing my ear. “I undress to impress.”
