Description:

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.

My Thoughts:

Everything has been built up for this battle between the Fallen Angels and Nephilim with Nora being right in the middle, she has to get the Nephilim to realize she is on their side while also keeping everyone from fighting.  Many of the Nephilim don't buy that Nora is ready to pick up where her father left off.  Is Nora really ready to start a battle or just doing a good job of faking it to keep her and her mother alive?

This book had what you normally expect from Becca Fitzpatrick the love story with Patch and Nora, a lot of whinning from Nora which seems to be her m.o lately. A battle between angels and Nephilim and Nora try to keep her and her mother alive.  We also see a strange relationship between Nora and Marcie the girl we love to hate.

Something did feel off in this book and I'm not sure what it is but I have noticed others say it was missing something too.  I can't put my finger on what it is but something just fell short in this story unlike the other ones.  It could be Nora's endless complaining about not being ready to fight or something else I really don't know but for Hush Hush fans I think the story does wrap up nicely!
