Nora and Patch thought that with Hank gone all their problems would be too, but instead it just makes everything worse. Nora now has to lead the Nephilim to war against the fallen angels, but that would mean going against Patch which she would never do. So they make a plan to convince the Nephilim that she is going to lead them to freedom and win this war. But their plan goes south when Nora is being drawn to an addictive power. With all these obstacles being thrown at her will she get the happy ending she was always looking for?
These books just get better as the series continues! Having bigger problems than ever Nora must choose between freeing the Nephilim or being with Patch with each choice having its benefits and drawbacks. It’s such a fast paced book and has so many plot twists that you never see coming. Rating 5 out of 5 stars.

Playing on two sides at once, Nora does some things that may or may not surprise our average reader. All right, maybe more than a couple things. Following up the previous two books, this finale (no repetition intended) is quite a stunner. It truly goes out with a boom, or a series of booms. Apparently there is a lot of social media debate over how this cover looks. I personally don't get it, why do readers care more about the outside designed stuff, even though it probably usually isn't what the author originally imagined. Suggestion: anyone who liked this series and the concept of angels should try out the Mercy series, another series of four books just with less reflection on fallen angels. 4.5/5 stars

Great action packed book. Great teen read. I would recommend this book greatly. There are many events that keep you guessing and when you think the book is over it is not. You never know what Patch and Nora will do. Or if they will always be together. One of the best series I have read.

Why. What happened. This series started out with a studious, cautious, and level-headed girl with an underlying sense of bravery. Now we have a power-hungry, trying-to-be-the-tough-girl, dont-mess-with-me Nora whose 'bravery' a lot of times feels like stupidity.
Then, there's Cheshvan. Literally the whole book is her stressing out and freaking because she has to lead a mysterious army into a mysterious war. I thought this would happen at the beginning of Cheshvan but no. It all happened in the last fifty or so pages. Seriously?! That's just annoying. It was like, stop whining about a war that doesn't feel like will occur.
Patch was good, but he lost some of his ulterior, tough-guy feel. He felt a little more mushy and caring, which yes is good, but you don't just get rid of your whole personality in a month or two.
Why did that have to happen with Scott? There didn't feel like much need for it.
And Vee? Really, I feel like it was just too much too fast.
And finally. Basso??? I guessed from book one that he would have more significance. But after that he was barely around, only appearing when Nora was in need of help or is pulled over. Seriously, how did no one, not even Patch, realize that he was there? I don't know how much I buy that.
Oh well. Another series done. Another slight rant completed.

I really enjoyed the ending of this book! As per all Fitzpatrick's books, she adds such great twists and turns! This is definitely my favourite book in the series, and I was very sad to finish it! I admit that some of the other books in the series were a bit dull, but this book makes reading them all the worth it! Happy Reading!

I can't believe it's over! I feel really sad, like there is this big hole in my heart. The epilogue left me a little bewildered, but other than that I loved the twists, and would definitely recommend this book!

Becca Fitzpatrick grew up reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden with a flashlight under the covers. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. And now she has completed the final book of the Hush, Hush supernatural saga. It is here and done and was anticipated by a very diverse group of readers. Readers who have been following along have had lots of great things to say about Finale. Nora Gray, a Nephilim, is in love with Patch, a fallen angel. Their love is forbidden. As fate would have it, they are supposed to be on opposite sides of a war between Nephilim and Fallen Angels. This war has a new leader in Nora, since her father had passed. She swears her oath to serve on her fathers death bed. Unfortunately for Nora and Patch this makes their relationship even more strained. Together Nora and Patch devise a plan, so that perspective groups believe them to be loyal to their kind. Nora learns to fight and become more agile, and somewhat of a trickster with the help of Scott, an old childhood friend, and Dante, a Nephilim trainer. Through Dante, Nora also does a drug called Devil Craft. It is a power enhancing drug. She is warned by Patch not to use it. Now drunk with its power, Nora shuts Patch out, and keeps her secrets from him. As the soon to be battle between these two forces grows and builds, Nora and Patch are faced with fighting for a war they never encouraged or fighting for their love. Either way, Nora must decide the fate of her world. Fitzpatrick has done an exceptional job of making readers feel attached to these characters strengths, weaknesses and how they handle relationships and problems. There is no predictability as the story unwinds with readers as they learn and grow with each character. This saga could be enjoyed by teens and adults who love a good strong character and storyline that doesn't disappoint. As an extra added bonus this book is connected to the latest technology. Readers can get the free app so they can watch the books video and get exclusive insight to more extras pertaining to this series.
