    "Crescendo is a fantasy book with a great cover. If that is all you are judging on, this should definitely be in your collection. I love the way it looks and how the lightning stands out."

    "This is a great little fantasy book, mostly ideal for teens I would say. It has a lot of interesting characters and the story has some great depth to it. The writing can be a bit weak in parts so it won't be for everyone but as I said it is likely ideal for teens. If you like other books in this general category then you will like this as well."

    "I really love how this book can be considered as one of the best fiction books there is when it comes to a very specific theme of abusive relationships. Crescendo is a part of an incredible saga and once you get your hands on this one, I would be confident in calling this one of the best no doubt about it just with its impressive story and very loyal fan base that comes with it."

    "I used to think that the angel storyline was played out, but this convinced me otherwise. I just love how there are always new and original ways to do an idea. Becca FitzPatrick really brought it with this book. "

    "I have always been obsessed vampire stories. Knowing that, my mother recommended me this book about a fallen angel. I thought it would be a little like Twilight, but it wasn't. The tone was completely different. I did enjoy it, but it didn't make my top list."

    "This is the continuing story of redemption for a fallen angel and a human discovering she's anything but... I think the book does a good job of moving the story of the main characters forward and explaining their backgrounds more clearly. I found it a little trite but I did enjoy it. I'm not sure that if you are looking for demons, that this is the book for you. "

    "I was starting to give up and not understand the insaneness of the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick. The first 2 books were boring and lacked originality, but Becca stepped up on this one. SILENCE is the fast-paced, wildly entertaining, and absolutely riveting third book in author Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series. "

    "I can't begin to express how disappointed I am in this book. I absolutely LOVED Hush, Hush, but after the first book this series lost its spark. I know that there are many people who dislike Patch, saying that he's mean, blah blah blah. I think just the opposite. He's been a favorite of mine since the beginning of the series, and he became that much more of a shining star in this book. We got to see exactly how much he cares about Nora and exactly how far he is willing to go to save her. Nora, on the other hand, is somewhat a sore spot for me. I simply can't stand her. There, I said it: Nora has got to go. I know that the author wanted to make this strong, sassy heroine but I really think that Fitzpatrick took it too far. The first problem that I had with Nora is that she's self centered and overly sarcastic. When she first came home, she was SO harsh with her mom and other people that seemed to care about her. I'm sure her mom sometimes guiltily wished that Nora had stayed missing. Nora was a snippy, irritating, and an all around annoying character. However, I think that what really pushed me to dislike Nora is that she's too stupid to live (TSTL). She goes out and gets herself into all of the dangerous situations, and for what? She makes up her mind to save the day, but makes no plans other than jumping out and screaming "A-HA! Gotcha!" once she gets there. She has no skills, no means to protect herself, and no intelligence to speak of. *SLIGHT SPOILER* The scene with Nora and Scotty trying to sneak into the building, and her accidentally throwing a rock at the FIRE ESCAPE when trying to get his attention, resulting in the near-death of both of them had my mouth drop to the floor. The sheer power of her stupidity was astounding! *END SPOILER* Her desire to bring down Hank all by herself, and forbidding Patch to go after him was stupid, naive, stupid and did I mention STUPID? I felt my IQ drop about 10 points reading this book. Like another reviewer said, Nora simply couldn't do ANYTHING right. She put herself in dangerous situation after dangerous situation, and had to be rescued EVERY time. This book ended on a cliffhanger, but I don't think I can take anymore of Nora the Nitwit. It's not likely that I will be reading the next installment. Would I recommend this book? It really depends. I'm sure many people will be able to overlook the sheer idiocy of Nora. Those who can will be able to enjoy this book. "

    "Crescendo is a book for young adults that has someone falling in love with their guardian angel. So it does fit with the search criteria. It is, however, a sequel. So you may want to read the first in the series before this one."

    "From the solution I do see that Crescendo is a popular young adult book. I also see it is highly rated by reviewers. "

    "As much as I hate YA books in general, this book was an amazing experience. Top contender for supernatural books in YA and adults would love it too (my case). Fantastic writing, the pages almost turn themselves (spooky)."
