Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean they are fated to be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him.
Now Nora and Patch must gather their strength to face one last, perilous trial.
Old enemies return, new enemies are made, and a friend’s ultimate betrayal threatens the peace Patch and Nora so desperately want.
The battle lines are drawn—but which sides are they on? And in the end, are there some obstacles even love can’t conquer?
Forget Silence‘s Nora! Now, welcome back Crescendo‘s Nora! The spoiled and jealous brat is back, and on drugs! This basically is what makes all things I didn’t like in this book happen, so I needed to start this review with this little detail!
Finale starts right after the final events on Silence: Nora has to lead her father’s army against everything Patch stands for. Both of them need to find common ground, but before it happens they can’t be together, at least not on the eyes of others. This lead Nora and Patch to a public break up, when since the beginning its staged.
After that, Nora goes back to being annoying Nora, hating on Dabria in the same way she hated on Marcie in Crescendo. “Dabria this, Dabria that, Dabria wants Patch, Patch, Patch, Patch”. She makes bad decisions, hides important details and wants everyone to just stop the world so she can have… Patch. Hello, girl, big bad and cruel war almost beginning, let’s talk about saving the world?
Overall I thought this book explained all the mysteries, but I also think some things didn’t match. The need Becca felt to have a traitor was forced, because I couldn’t fucking believe (or understand) why the choice was who it was… I think part of the big problem with Finale was that this series took a long time to be finished, and everyone read a lot about fallen angels between those books. We don’t stand it anymore, and then Becca went and user every single clichê in the world in this one.
Finale isn’t a bad book and truly finished this series, even through some things weren’t explained on lenght, but it was a bit disappointing.
