Summary from Goodreads:

Fates unfurl in the gripping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush saga.

Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. 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?
LOVE! I like how Nora's dress is blown by the wind, the dark background and Patch trying to hold her hand. I think it reflects the book quite well! I have no complaints!


The final battle between Nephilim and Fallen Angels...

After reading Silence last year, I never thought there was a fourth book. I was not ready to part with the Hush, Hush series. I remember reading the first 2 books earlier last year and absolutely fell in love with them. I wasn't familiar with books about fallen angels yet and Hush, Hush sure introduced me to a fascinating world of the fallen angels. While the first book will always remain my favourite, Finale was a satisfying conclusion to the whole series.

After the blood oath Nora took before Hank died, Nora is left to lead the Nephilim against the fallen angels.The story revolves around Nora trying to deal with her blood oath, her relationship with Patch and the battle between the Nephilim and fallen angels. Nora faces difficulties in this book and I adored how the story concluded the series. The romance and action was in the right proportion and I want to thank Becca a billion times for ending the book that way. It was perfect. I was surprised but it was so right! Plus, if you live in Australia & New Zealand, you also get an exclusive content! HOORAY!

Strangely enough, I think I loved Patch most in this book. Nora made some 'bad decisions' in this book and she annoyed me sometimes. I understood what she was going through, having to lead a group of Nephilims but she could have trusted Patch more. Patch was such a loving and caring boyfriend to Nora! He was alwas ready to stand by Nora's side and did everything in his power to make her safe. Patch might dress up like a 'bad boy' but he is no longer one. There are new characters introduced in this book and we also finally to get to find out about Detective Basso's true identity! Dabria is still in this book and I wished she stayed away from Patch! But the character I disliked most was Dante. The name sounds cool but the character? Not so cool. Oh, remember Scott? I really adored him too. AND VEE! Her character surprised me a lot in this book. I never thought....(well, I should stay silent now!) But Patch and Nora, I wish you both all the best! I love you guys forever and you will always be my heart (oops, I didn't mean to be so cliché!)

Are you ready for the final battle between the Nephilim and the Fallen angels? Finale is the satisfying and thrilling conclusion to the Hush, Hush series. While the story plot was great, I loved Patch most in this book! If you're a fan of Hush, Hush, you're guaranteed to love this book!
5 Forget-Me-Not flowers for Finale!

  1. I don't think the characters ever annoyed me as much as they did in this book, though I think I read it at a bad time. ;) I still adore Patch and Nora together and was happy will the final book overall, even though it's not a favourite. Brilliant review, Celine!

  2. Woah, such a positive rating! I'm glad you enjoyed this series, Celine. It wasn't for me and even after trying the second book, I couldn't get through it and gave up. It's great to see that you enjoyed this one so much - lovely review, dear! :)

  3. Sweetheart! Im so gald you loved it so much. i enjoyed it fine, unfortunately it didnt wowed me as much as I wanted =(
    I dont know why though. I was expecting something epic and it wasnt for me, but I still liked it and I drooled over Patch a lot lol!

    Wonedrful review Celine!

    I hope you are doing great ^___^

    Take care!! muah!

  4. The third book really fell short for me, so I was really contemplating at not picking up the final book, but I saw it at the library and I succumbed! I'm glad you loved it Celine, I hope I too will able to praise it highly like you after I finish! Brilliant review! :)

  5. Haha, Nora annoyed me too! And I agree, Scott is fantastic :D

  6. I haven't read this book but it honestly feels like a nice one to pick up! Great review! : )

  7. I actually haven't read this series yet! Haha, perhaps I need to. I know my friend really likes this series, and I'm glad you do as well, Celine! Patch sounds like a really great character, but I'm not sure how I'll like Nora, haha. Excellent review, Celine!

  8. I'm so so happy this series ended right how you wanted it to. I never started it, I simply can't find the time, but I've heard so much about it and it makes me so happy that you enjoyed it. People kept complaining about Patch, though, and I'm glad he was your favorite in this book.
    Amazing review, Celine!

  9. Glad you loved this one. It was a definite step up from Silence, but for me wasn't the epic conclusion I was hoping for. I love Patch too. Didn't you just love his last line in this book? :)

  10. Nora annoyed me a lot in the second book of the series, but I hope I can tolerate her more in this final book! I liked Silence, it was interesting to see Patch trying to make Nora remember him. I hope that this book would be a great ending for the series! :) I'm glad that you gave it such glowing review, Celine! :)

    Beautiful review, my dear! <3

  11. Gorgeous review, love! :) I'm not sure if I'd like this series but your glowing five stars and high praise might just do the trick. I'm really pleased you enjoyed it!

  12. Eeee! I'm so excited to read this, and I don't even care that Nora is annoying because she was always annoying to me. It was always about Patch and I was actually a little bit rooting for him to kill her in the first book :)
