Det handler den om:
Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can’t figure out if it’s for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn’t answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

Min mening:
Jeg elsker Crescendo, ingen tvivl om den. Den lever godt op til sin titel, der kommer mere og mere fart på. Specielt den store cliff hanger der er i slutningen, jeg hader dem. For de giver bare en mere og mere lyst til at læse videre, og det er irriterende, når næste bog endnu ikke er udkommet. Jeg elsker Patch, jeg kan godt lide, at man ikke rigtig ved, hvor man har ham. Jeg kan også rigtig godt lide, at englene ikke er søde små nuttede engle, med hvide plyssede vinger, hvis i forstår hvad jeg mener 🙂

I hvert fald en af de bedste bøger jeg har læst længe. Det eneste negative er dog, at umiddelbart som jeg kan forstå det, bliver rødhårede ikke omtalt særlig godt. Scott Parnell siger på et tidspunkt at Nora har rødligt hår, som for at håne hende, og hun bliver meget irriteret over det, også hvis Patch siger hun har rødt hår. Jeg bryder mig ikke om, at rødhårede ser ud til at blive hånet, måske fordi jeg selv er rødhåret.

Det handler den om:
Nora’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, she is drawn to him against her better judgement. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and knows more about her than her closest friends.And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of a centuries-old battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and sooner or later, she’s going to have to pick sides…

Min mening:
Jeg synes den startede rigtig godt og hurtigt, og meget spændende. Det er lang tid siden, at jeg har læst en bog i jeg person, men jeg kunne godt lide det. Becca forstår at få mig ind i Noras følelser og tanker.
Jeg synes dog godt at den kan minde en smule om Twilight, med biologi timerne, og den mystiske fyr. Seriøst, hvorfor skal hun lige møde ham i biologi timen i skolen? Kunne hun ikke møde ham på en cafe, eller bare en anden time?
Men når det er sagt, så elsker jeg at hendes engle ikke er lutter søde og rare, men er mørke og onde.
Det er i hvert fald en jeg vil læse igen, og skal også læse fortsættelsen.
