Top Ten YA Novels 2012: Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick

First off: Merry Christmas Guys!

And now, it's time to announce the 6th best YA novel I read this year:

Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick.


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.


Why I love this book:

1. Patch: 

Okay, I love Patch all the time. But the Patch in Finale is somehow different. He's more playful than before, which is good because handling the last book in a bestselling series isn't the most peaceful thing I've ever done. And his emotions are more intense yet less consuming. Another good thing. Consuming is sometimes good. But after reading The Lost Prince and Beautiful Redemption, less consuming is better for me. And intense? Always my cup of tea.

2.   Unexpected things:

Okay, so Nora drinking devilcraft? That's probably the most OMG and WTF thing I've ever encountered. I mean, seriously, how can you imagine Nora as a evil girl drinking devilcraft, huh? And then there's Patch's feather burned into nothingness. This is not just shocking. This is devastating. And then Dante as a guy turn against Nora? Haven't seen it coming. Really.

3. Nora:

Nora is very different from before, too. This Nora is definitely tougher, and more bad-ass. Yet just as sweet. Somehow some of her annoying personalities disappear. Like her jealous self. And her always scared self. That's a true heronie in Finale. I really do like her.

Why you guys should read this book:

1. Champion out of all fallen angels series:

Okay, don't get me wrong. I like Fallen. But Hush, Hush is just so much better. I totally understand why people call Hush, Hush "champion out of all fallen angels series". No one can imagine a FALLEN angel being a good guy and so FREAKING sweet.

And then, Nephilim is always considered as a descendant of angels and humans, which is a good thing (Come on, even TMI and TID said that the Nephilim is a good thing on Earth). But then, the Nephilim in Hush, Hush is quite evil (with the exception of Nora and Scott, maybe). Main difference here. And these two factors makes the book spectacular.

2. Really peaceful:

You might ask: "What is so good about a PEACEFUL YA novel?" Well, hear me out: My peaceful is not the action-absent kind of peaceful. In fact I love battles and wars (that's why I love TMI, TID and dystopian novel so much). Hush, Hush is emotionally peaceful. Well, relatively, at least. You can't imagine how the emotions go up and down constantly throughout The Lost Prince. Needless to mention TMI and TID. So Hush, Hush? Well, not nearly a break. But good enough.

Finale is the last book of the saga. Which is sad because I miss the characters. But don't worry! Hush, Hush's gonna be a movie! Check it out on fallenarchangel.com You will definitely see the news.
