REVIEW: Finale

Title: Finale (#4 Hush Hush)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publication Date: October 23rd 2012
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Format: Paperback
Pages: 455
Rating: 5/5
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.


May we take a moment, for this book series, to rest in peace? It has served us a good 3 years and has revived my friend from the “I hate books section,” to, “I still hate books but I love Hush hush.” It truly should be known as one of my true loves, right after Ely.

Before this book came out, everyone went crazy when the discovered that there was a fourth book in the trilogy. Seriously, the trilogy had a fourth book? Who does that? We all assumed that she was doing it for the money like some other series we know. Not naming names but *cough* House of Night *cough*. And though the third book did its deed in finishing the story, I felt like the fourth book wrapped it up tightly. I’m glad for the fourth book, because that book made me realise how much I would miss this series.

I spent countless days depressing and dying inside when I hit the finale (Hehe, self is so funny.) I went back and reread all the books as well as rereading the last book again, and then went back again to reread my favourite scenes.

I want to write a book like that. It makes me want to feel everything I want to feel in a series. I want the main character to be stabbed, I want the boy to worry and fuss over her and I want the characters to take part in a journey that tears them apart to seal them back together. I want to develop a relationship the way Becca Fitzpatrick does. It is raw.

So I better get on with the review right? Yeah, probably the smartest idea.


Patch, Patch, Patch. Dream boy I truly did miss you in Silence when Nora only remembered you as “Jev.” It’s good to see you back in this book still supporting Nora even though she was basically your greatest enemy. You did everything to protect her and you didn’t even go all Edward Cullen.

Nora, you responded the way I wanted you to. I wanted you to say no to the antidote, but then I kinda wanted you to get it on with Dante to make patch Jelous, but he didn’t deserve it. You were such a great heroine in this book and you didn’t always depend on the man, that is what will make you memorable.

I guessed that Dante would be the villain at the start. Fitz has that cliché of changing all the new friends to enemies and I doubted that she would bring a new love interest in the last and final book.  But that didn’t stop me from loving him. Then when he turned darker I began to hate him, he deserved it.

Though there were ways I wanted things to go, but I’m not the author.

Fitzy, you capture teen ways in the right light. Seriously. Everything I read in the book about people could so be relatable for now. Vee and her ways is kinda like me, oh god how can I go on? Ely, save me.

When I was reading the chapter where Nora confessed about taking Devilcraft and Patch stated that he wasn’t mad at her, the only song I could see for them was, “Kiss Me,” by Ed Sherren (Yup, Damon and Elena’s song as well!)

My Goodreads straight after review:

I am going to cry, die, love and die all over again. Finale, i loved you in many ways possible. I will love the characters and i will never let this series go. It's sad we have to end like this. I love your Finale, and love means alot expecially when you read the last line in this book where i just chuckled.

The only crap thing was the title. Come on. Could have given something better. My friend and I actually joked that the book was going to be named “Noisey.” I actually wanted Nora to become sick with that Devilcraft. It would have been interesting witch Patch's reaction.
Oh god i love him
No love Triangles. Epic.

If the series didn’t have this book, I don’t think I would have appreciated it as much as I do now.

This Review is a mess, but my feelings for this series is a mess.
