Book Review: Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finale (Hush Hush #4)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Buying links: Amazon/ B&N/ TBD
My rating: 3 stars
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. 


I’m really sad I landed once again in another disappointing ending.
But don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate Finale, I didn’t love it either. I keep telling myself that maybe my taste in books changed too much since I started the series, and now I don’t like the same things.
It’s just that… well, I finally see Nora as the annoying character my friends kept telling me about since they started the series, I didn’t see it before, but in Finale it was so obvious. Nora lied, Nora had secrets, Nora did the wrong the most stupid things in the world and nothing really bad happened to her. Even Patch seemed blinded and like a puppy with her.
And talking about Patch… I loved him in the previous books, he was sexy, swoon-worthy, strong and smart, a badass, but in Finale Patch was like a lion turned into a cat. Too soft, too… sweet.
I am really, really sad it turned like that. I still think my favorite characters are Vee and Scott, but Becca Fitzpatrick ruined them in the end as well. It makes me want to cry and scream at the same time.

Anyway, aside from the annoying characters and the weak relationship among them, I enjoyed the story line and how the plot developed. There were unexpected twist and turns that I appreciated.
The writing was as addictive as in the other books, fast passed, and the descriptions were really good.
The things ended in an easy way, but it was good.
However, I think the ending was a little rushed and I felt like something was missing there, add to that the cheesiest scene in the world where “they” even forget they were in the middle of a lot of people dead.
This leads me to the worst Epilogue in the world.

Once again, I’m so, SO disappointed. But like I said, I also liked it. I think this is some case of love/hate relationship. It wasn’t as amazing as I hoped but I think some people will be happy with the way the story of Nora and Patch ended.
I, personally didn’t feel a thing. No happy tears, no sad tears, nothing.



  1. Well, your review really made me glad that I gave up on the series in Crescendo. I DNFed it because Nora was annoying me and Patch wasn't being much better, and I had really liked Hush Hush...
    So sorry to hear that it disappointed you so much though.
    Thanks for a very honest review!
