Wow! There has been alot of hate going on for the series/books with all the "hate review" going on and I totally respect all or your opinions since there is something called "freedom of speech" and "voicing your opinion". I totally get that and I don't have anything against you guys but some people are not just voicing there opinions, they're straight out bashing the books and the author. There's also one thing i do not understand, some people claim the books wasted their precious time

AND BY THE WAY, HERE IS THE KICKER. Free Will. YOU have the choice to by it or not. If is sucks so bad to you, WHY do you buy the first 3 and read them ALL. Books I do not like, I stop reading and toss them, then GUESS WHAT....I do not by the next in the series. WOW, What a concept.

Seriously, Fitzpatrick?! Seriously?!

I just.....I just can't understand! First Adornetto, then Kate, and now you not only once with your freaking graphic novel, but twice?!

See, you're even making Dean (my dearest Mocha's husband) cry. This madness has to end!

All of the authors I've mentioned so far are not doing this to advance the story, in any way, shape, or form. Hell, all of these series could have been done in half the amount that there are currently; all of these authors are doing
It was good, but not perfect.
Since the fallen angels came back from hell, it was... strange. And after Hush, Hush and Crescendo, Finale was pretty weak. This is one of those series where I just wish it remained a trilogy rather than adding more books to it.

It. Is. Over.
I did it.
I read the entire Hush, Hush series.
And I came out alive.
When I started reading the very first book, I had no idea what I was getting myself in for.
I believed I was in for a paranormal-romance treat.
I didn't heed anyone's warnings.
So allow me to attempt to warn you. Please God, let me help.

I have read every book in this series and I have reviewed each one.

But I can sum up the entire series in one .gif:

That is some stuff right there.

Seriously, I can't even fathom -

Actually, I'm not even going to try tonight. Its my bedtime, and honestly if I try to write a review for it now, it'll be just a jumble of words that wouldn't really live up to my rating.



I think its a necessity that on every cover in this series Patch has to have his shirt off.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

not gonna lie, the finale of this series feels a little rushed to me, but boy. what a finale it is.

even though this story had its ups and downs along the way, its definitely one of the more unique series i have read and one that has gotten me to open up more to the paranormal sub-genre. i am really content with how everything played out (i just wish it had better pacing) and i am glad i will be putting this book back in its place on my shelf with positive feelings.

HAHA -- the cover models look like R-Patz (with Bruno Mars hair) and K-Stew (with a bit of a 'fro going).
How fitting.

Finale. Really. What an anticlimactic title.
C'mon, guys. Really. We all know Becca could've summarized the three things that happened in SILENCE in the beginning of this book and kept it a trilogy. Things would've worked much better that way.

F#@!. Really? She really can't stop at number 3? I seriously doubt I'm going to read this. She really couldn't finish in Silence?

The last book of the Hush Hush series, so many wonderful memories, so many unforgettable scenes, so many tears, laughs, and shocks...I will never forget this series for all it was worth. My journey with this series was one I enjoyed very much and I hoped would last forever, but alas, all good things have to come to an end....but at least Becca Fitzpatrick knew how to make a lasting impression with her fourth and final book. It was the perfect ending! I was completely hooked on every single word ...more
My book blog:

My Summary: This is the fourth and final book in the bestselling Hush, Hush series. In the previous book, Silence, Nora swore an oath that if Hank Miller (aka The Black Hand and her dad) died, she'd take his place as leader of the Nephilim race. And, naturally, he died so she became the leader. So in Finale Nora is to lead the Nephilim army to war against the fallen angels, which also means against Patch (aka fallen angel and love of her life).

Finale. And there will be no moment of peace in this book until maybe the short epilogue. The book is packed with action, it is angsty and it is full of twists.

The only strong reference point is the love of Patch for Nora:

“Did you know, the first time I saw you, I thought: I’ve never seen anything more captivating and beautiful?”

“Why are you telling me this?” I said miserably.

“I saw you, and I wanted to be close to you. I wanted you to let me in. I wanted to know you in a way no one else did. I
It was a pretty damn awesome end, but I did have a few issues with certain plot points, though.

All I see is people bitching about this book. I have a simple solution: DON'T READ IT IF YOU'RE THAT UPSET OVER THERE BEING A FOURTH BOOK.

I would have been pissed if she ended Silence the way she did without there being this book to tie things up. I don't know how people would have been satisfied with that ending.

But it seems a lot of people hate the series and keep reading. That makes no sense to begin with...

Okay, everyone has now expressed how infuriated they are that there is a fourth book to this series, now I am going to put in my opinion. Yes, I am ecstatic, in fact it is taking a lot of physical restrain to type this in but, by god, when I realized that there was a fourth book I screamed so loud I think my neighbours have call the police. Of course I found out about 3 minutes after finishing Silence so I was very deflated that the book had ended like that with so many gaps and questions but I ...more

Oh, god.
Okay, so, Hush Hush is kind of quiet.
Crescendo is really loud.
Silence is....silent.
SO WHAT CAN YOU POSSIBLY CALL THIS? Semi-Sorta-Loud-Stormy-Angsty-Silence?
And by the way...OH, SO NOW IT'S A SAGA? It started with the Twilight saga. And now the Fallen saga. Then the Beautiful Creatures saga. And now...
I can just picture B-Fitz's conversation with her publisher.

Fitzpatrick: Look, looky here! I've finished Silence! I can finally stop writing and sit on my piles of dough in peace!

This book was so bad I'm not even gonna get into the dirty details of what I liked about this book. In all honesty, if I didn't know better, I'd think a teenager scripted and wrote Finale. My book buddy and I have talked about this so often but it does only get truer everytime we do so.

This started out good, but the pace really killed it.

Nora was both strong and weak in this book. Strong because she was intent on finding a way to please both the angels and the Nephilim, and weak because she ended up with a bit of a drug addiction.

The storyline in this was about Nora trying to fulfil her oath to lead the Nephilim, whilst still dating Patch, and trying to keep that a secret. The pace in this was really slow, and while it was good in places, the pace really killed it for me, and

'Scott didn't like the answer he kept coming back to.
If Nora had done this-
If Patch had helped her-
It didn't matter how carefully they'd covered their tracks. They'd miss something. Everyone always did. It was only a matter of time.'

This was a great ending to the Hush Hush Saga! I loved the action in this book. Nora grew up so much and her relationship with Patch was undeniable. I loved how new characters were introduced without it seeming awkward and how old enemies popped back up unexpectedly. I would definitely re-read this series!

Patch and Nora have been through a lot. Now things are about to get much crazier. Hank screwed Nora over by making her swear an oath to lead his army or her mother would die. So of course she d

My opinion on Nora during this entire book:

Go ahead, Nora. Ignore everyone's advice. Drink more of the 'evil-demon-magic' potion and screw everything up. Go ahead!! SEE IF I CARE.



I finished Finale. I reached the end!

Fortunately, there is no 'Encore'.

But now I have finished it in one sitting I realised that it's...HOLY MOLY IT'S ALMOST ELEVEN O'CLOCK!!

Sleep calls.
Dreams call.
And Patch will hopefully be in every single one of them.

Nora was still a judgmental, useless, holier than thou, whiny bitch and Patch was still a stalkery, cliched, one dimensional bastard.
The plot was crap — the war between the Nephil and fallen angels was a joke, the whole Devilcraft thing felt very deus ex machina-y, Nora didn't know what day it was most of the time, Patch just acted secretive and cold, the romance was cringey and the ending was cheesy and predictable.
