Cover Judge

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Release: November 16, 2010

Synopsis: Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as 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 further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline 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?

Cover: First off, let me just say that I was a big fan of Hush, Hush's cover and was very excited to see how the Crescendo cover would compare. The cover for Hush, Hush was brilliant, giving Crescendo big shoes to fill. That said, I like how they decided to continue on the atmospheric black and white clouds from the first cover, as well as the gorgeous burst of light in the background. Even with these similarities, however, I still believe that Hush, Hush's cover was stronger. Don't get me wrong, the lightning in the background and the pouring rain are beautiful. The thing I'm not too hot about is the model. Is it just me or does she look a bit too old to be a teen? In addition to that, I find the positioning to be a bit awkward. It's a lovely cover overall, but I'm not sure if it's one of my favorites.


  1. Her covers are great. I wouldn't say I like this one more than Hush, Hush but it's really fantastic as well. I like how it's Nora on the cover this time around and the feather in her hand is a really great touch as is the parting sky.

  2. I completely agree. I loved the Hush, Hush cover and the fact that it had more of an action shot. I like the background and red feather, but I'm not the biggest fan of the model and how she's standing. Still really looking forward to reading the book!
