Review: Finale (Hush Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finale (Hush, Hush, #4)

Book: Finale (Hush Hush #4)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Rating: 4 Stars
Level: Young Adult
Source: Hardcover - Purchased

Summary from Goodreads:
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 Review:
Finale is a great ending to one of my favorite series. I fell in love with Patch in the first book, Hush Hush. I mean how can you not? While I am sad to see this series end I am happy with how everything turned out. 

In this one, Nora seems to take more control of her life. She has decided that she needs to step up and take charge to become a true leader to her followers. Dante has started training Nora, even though sometimes she wishes he wouldn't. Marcy moves in with Nora and her mom. This is an interesting story line since they are have been enemies for a long time. Nora and Patch's relationship is tested multiple times again. Secrets are revealed and some new characters are introduced to us. Patch is swoon worthy as always which I love. Can you tell Patch is like my favorite? There are some good action scenes along with betrayal, struggles and some major twists and turns.

I didn't totally love it but overall I really enjoyed it and thought the ending was great.

Review: Oubliette (Cloud Prophet Trilogy #2) by Megg Jensen

Oubliette by Megg Jensen 

Book: Oubliette (Cloud Prophet Trilogy #2)
Author: Megg Jensen
Publisher: Megg Jensen
Rating: 4 Stars
Level: Young Adult
Source: e-book Review Copy

Summary from Goodreads:
Reychel thought she was finally free. She was wrong. Everyone saw her gift of prophecy as a blessing, but her gift is uncontrollable. No one alive can teach her to manipulate her unique gift and the answers she needs lie buried within a madman’s journals. She’s thrust in the midst of a brewing war and the only uniting factor for her people is their belief in the Prophet.

Will Reychel learn to control her gift or will she be forced to deliver a false prophecy that could lead her people into a violent war?

My Review:
Oubliette, the second book in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy had me from the very beginning. It had been a while since I had read the first book but this one picked right up from where Anathema left off.

Reychel is ported to the Southern Kingdom where she meets all new characters. She is no longer a slave but now someone who everyone is looking to as the prophet. Reychel has the gift of prophecy but is not able to control it. She is not sure who she can trust or who to believe. For all you Mark fans, he is in this one throughout the book. There is also another hot guy, Ace but he gets involved with a new character to this trilogy.

I really enjoyed reading this, it was just as good if not better than the first one. Reychel is growing as a character and getting closer with Mark. There is also more world building. I loved learning about how the Southern Kingdom lives. There are some twists and turns and some quite shocking moments. This is one that will keep you guessing, you will not want to put it down. I'm excited to see what is going to happen in the last book. If you haven't read started reading this trilogy I recommend you start. It's a mix of dystopian and fantasy. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
