    WOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

    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.

    STAY TUNED (?)

    I think its a necessity that on every cover in this series Patch

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

    WHAT??? I thought this was a joke...especially since when I first saw this name it was 2 o'clock in the morning after a particularily terrifying zombie dream wrenched me from my sleep. But

    , really? You might as well call this "Last Book", or "Fourth Book". And how do you pronounce it anyway? As "Final?" or "Feenal?"

    ***

    I was walkin' through the Chapters store.

    And a man walks up to me and hands me the latest "Hush Hush" book.

    "New book, really awesome."

    Man, I'm not going to let you poison me.

    I THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

    You must think I'm a JOKE!

    I ain't gonna be part of this SYSTEM!

    Man, give that book to some other Mary Sue!

    I got to my favourite town library,

    And the dude says, "You come here all the time. Here's Hush Hush for free."

    I said "Man! What do I look like? A charity case?"

    I took it,

    AND THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

    I don't need your handouts!

    I'm SMART!

    PLEASE!

    You can't give me Hush Hush man!

    At my high school with my so-called friend

    She hand me her book. Says its Hush Hush.

    "Man, this ain't a book! This is a sad excuse!"

    I THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

    What, you think I'm stupid?

    I'm not a part of this SYSTEM!

    PATCH IS A RAPIST!

    DUH!

    Some poser hands me Hush Hush at my birthday party.

    "What do you want me to do with this, read it?"

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GROUND!

    I THREW THE REST OF THE SERIES TOO!

    Welcome to the real worl poser!

    So many books, to throw on the ground.

    Like Hush Hush

    Crescendo

    Silence

    And even this one!

    I'm SMART!

    Becca Fitzpatrick tries sell me her new book

    GROUND!

    NOBODY WANTS YOUR SAD EXCUSE FOR A BOOK!

    PHONIE!

    Then she got up, turned out she has another book.

    And she tried to sell it to me!

    I wanted to run away,

    she didn't let up.

    Selling her book, over, and over.

    I was crying, and screaming.

    My mind was on fire.

    The moral of this story is...

    YOU CAN'T TRUST THE SYSTEM!

    ...

    MAN!

    I simply loved this series. I will miss you Pat h!!!!!

    PEOPLE ..........GET A GRIP. YOU ARE COMPLAINING BECAUSE A PUBLISHING COMPANY IS PUBLISHING A FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT THAT IS SELLING.

    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.

    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

    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 and something intense was happening in all parts of the book. Not one word or sentence could be overlooked or ignored as it was vital to the story. Of course, because the book was so capturing and flowed very well, it would’ve been impossible to have missed anything in it. The characters were much more developed, there was definitely a growth in the amount of action from the first book to this one, the romance was off the grill, and of course there was some humor, but not a lot (the only sad part about the books). But leaving aside all that, my favorite part was the development of the plot. I loved that each book led up to the grand ‘finale’ in the last one; it made for the series to be more suspenseful.

    As I said before, the characters were much more developed in this book, especially Nora. I’m actually quite proud of how much she’s grown from the first book until now. Although she didn’t do a complete transformation and become a complete of the rockers bad-ass, she’s certainly not the shy and introverted girl that she was in the first book. She’s now more determined to protect herself and others and tries to do her best in order to help save man-kind (as it is all up to her now, ha ha). Although, I’m not saying I completely loved her in this book, she did make some stupid decisions like always, but she wouldn’t be Nora without her terrible decision-making skills. My favorite part about Nora in this book was that she tries to take leadership and she doesn’t back down even with tons of hard-ass fallen angel dudes leaning over her shoulder at every chance. Knowing her, I thought she would’ve peed in her pants, but she definitely proved me wrong. I feel like my love...ok...that’s a bit extreme....maybe, great like, for Nora has grown over the series alongside her strength.

    Patch...*sigh*...oh sweet, sweet, sweet Patch. You will always be one of my most favorite book boyfriends and I well never ever forget you or your charm and witty one-liners. Without Patch, to be honest, half this series would’ve just been a joke. In Finale, I didn’t much like the fact that Patch was absent for a great deal of the story. Yes, he had his troubles and Nora had hers, but I wish he was in here just a tad bit more..yah know? Just a tad. But other than that, I still loved him in this book just as I have loved him since his and Nora’s first meeting. He was protective, bad-ass and funny...basically...amazing!

    Patch and Nora’s relationship in this book was off the charts people! They had to stage a break-up (which was one of my favorite scenes in this book...hilarious!) in order to get the Nephilim to believe that Nora is 100% on their side, but they still had secret rendezvous’ and shared secret love scenes hot enough to lift a thousand hot-air balloons into the sky. Aside from them, all the other characters were great! I loved Scott in this book way more than the others as he tried to help Nora when she was in trouble. Even the others, such as Marcie and Debra who were as annoying as ever, added to the amazingness that this book was.

    All in all, I’m glad that Fitzpatrick decided to create a fourth book (unlike many other people) because I’m not sure I was ready to leave this series yet. Who cares if it was originally a trilogy? All I know is that I enjoyed it a great deal and was very satisfied with the ending. Props to you Miss. Fitzpatrick, for creating a hooking and entertaining series.

    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).

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).

    Naturally, she doesn't want to do this, so she and Patch devise a plan: lead everyone to believe they are no longer together and while Nora tries to convince the Nephilim not to fight the fallen angels, Patch would be finding out as much as he can about the fallen angels' plans, stopping the war before it even begins.

    But even the best of plans turn astray and when Nora finds herself with a supposed friend turned into unexpected enemy, and an troubling addiction to deal with, it leaves her unprepared for her most frightening journey yet...

    It's done. Patch and Nora's story is finished and I'm more than bit sad about that. Although, I must say it ends well and I don't find myself wishing there was another book so I guess that means it's completed.

    Overall I enjoyed this book, yet it's not my favourite in the series.

    Oh, and Nora totally changes. She goes from sweet protective Nora to manipulative ass-kicking Nora. I actually think I liked the earlier Nora more, it seemed more HER - just saying.

    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?

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

    Buckle up, kids. I am posting my final review of this

    book series, and you had better believe there are going to be some serious spoilers.

    , the third book in the series, left off with Nora Grey killing the Black Hand, Hank Millar. She has sworn a blood-oath to become the new leader of the Nephilim army and lead the race in a war against the fallen angels. It's not that she wants to lead the army - she wants peace on earth and no more bloodshed for either race. But it's a case of if she doesn't lead the army, she and her mum will die.

    . Nora Grey doesn't much care that fallen angels routinely

    . It's not

    important to her that you are an enslaved race. She thinks slave and captor alike should just put down their weapons and love each other. However she's chosen to "lead you", to save her mum.

    Twat.

    So that's how we begin the final leg of this story. Our bird-brained heroine Nora Grey, whose name perfectly illustrates her personality, has been made a fucking war general. And how does she deal with this? She goes clubbing.

    So she and BFF Vee are all up in da club when we are introduced to brand new character Dante: menacingly flirtatious Nephil, Nora's self-appointed PR manager and essentially wants to be seen as the Clegg to her Cameron (if you don't immediately think he has an agenda, signal your presence to the guard and get your ass back to preschool).

    After flirting with Nora for longer than is necessary, Dante tells her it would be a good idea to boost her media presence, show her under a positive light, give her new Nephilim army a reason to like her. Straight off the bat it should not be known that Nora is having secret facenoms with a fallen angel, so maybe she should pretend to be in a relationship with a nice Nephil boy, someone like Scott (pointless secondary character who has

    contributed fuckall to the plot).

    "Oh no," says Nora, "he's a friend! It would be too weird, and besides my BFF fancies the pants off the man. Suggest someone else, go on, I dare you."

    "Me." shrugs Dante.

    "Oh em gee!" says Nora, fanning herself with her hand, "I had no idea you were going to suggest yourself. I immediately accept."

    Excuse me, Nora, while I go vomit over your simplicity.

    We don't have to wait long before Nora is abducted again. This time it's by some

    Nephilim who

    and drive her to an undisclosed location and - *gasp* -

    . Yes kids, it's the final book now and the horrors of war are well and truly upon us.

    In an incredibly interesting turn of events, Nora Grey does not panic. She stays calm, sasses her kidnappers and without hesitation

    .

    I kid you not, it actually happened. Behold, direct quote:

    Now I know this is entirely because Nora is full-blown Nephil now and she has heightened senses and more strength, but

    it is still good to see her actually

    something for a change! Sure, Patch shows up fairly quickly to rescue the poor broad, but Nora has

    . Patch has nothing left to do except drive her home.

    Never thought I'd say this, but +1 to Nora Grey.

    So the plot continues with Nora attempting to trick the world into thinking she and Patch have broken up and doing daily training with Dante. To make Nora stronger, Dante slips her a dose of devilcraft, which is a deliberately vague ethereal blue liquid (supposedly from hell) the magical properties of which enable you to do

    without having to explain how it works because plot. It also conveniently explains every single one of the convenient plot-holes in this entire book, and there are too many to even list. Ugh.

    And then miss Grey goes and gets herself in trouble yet again.

    Yet nothing goes as expected.

    An archangel called Pepper holds a gun to Nora. She remains calm and strong. She challenges him. Attempts to get information out of him. She makes use of her rusty, cobweb-covered brainbox in order to

    . AND SHE DOES.

    It was at this point that I had to stop and figure out what the hell had just happened.

    For three whole books, Nora Grey has been a nothing more than a puddle of existence. She is an established fainter, the kid of girl whose life revolves around her boyfriend, the kind of girl who

    . The girl's stupidity is mind-blowing: she can't apply logic to even the most basic of scenarios. She fell in love with Patch

    he admitted to having tried to

    for heaven's sake! Nora Grey is a pathetic excuse for a heroine and it is completely out of character for her to be sassy, strong and crafty!

    It all went from utter confuzzlement to sudden enlightening clarity.

    Oh Becca Fitzpatrick...it all becomes clear. I see what you have done.

    In what was either a stunning display of her creative disability or just a massive

    , Becca Fitzpatrick decided to completely and utterly change Nora Grey's personality.

    No personal growth, no reflection of change, no puzzlement over the recent turn of events. Is it the fact that she's now Nephilim? Could it be the devilcraft? Do any other characters even

    her complete shift of being? BIG. FAT.

    . Nora Grey is now the kind of girl who will stand up for herself without fear and not wait around for her man to rescue her...just...

    .

    On top of it all, Nora has had a complete change of heart RE: the war. Now that she is Nephilim, Nora realizes that - oh shit! - a fallen angel can actually possess me! Well shit. I don't want that to happen, I completely see your point of view now Nephilim, let us fight these sons of bitches and have ourselves some bloodshed!

    100% out of character. But...points for doing the right thing..? I don't know Nora, I'm trying. Which is expecially difficult considering the next quote:

    Nice philosophy, Grey. I could support your change of heart and wanting to fight for Nephilim freedom, if only for your "shit-it-could-happen-to-me-now-so-I-had-better-do-something" attitude. But participating in a

    for the sake of appearing strong? That earns you a place in hell my friend, as you have the exact same belief system as this guy.

    Let's attempt to move on, shall we?

    Cheshvan (the month where possession is possible) is upon them now and the fallen are primed to possess them all pretty much any day now. They're still not strategizing. Nora Grey is the leader of the army, and

    she makes no attempt to suss out what the hell they're going to do. She throws a bitching Halloween party though, fallen angels attack them and everything. She fights them off (easily, of course), and still isn't inspired to do some war planning. She just heads off with Dante to some strength training instead...

    Where Dante informs her...

    ...the Nephil army has a secret facility where they keep captured fallen angels, weakened by devilcraft, so that Nephilim can learn to

    .

    Just

    is Nora Grey's reaction to this shocking news?

    [paraphrasing]

    [/paraphrasing]

    Let. Me. Get. This. Straight.

    The whole point of this war...the whole

    Nora now wants to be part of it...is because possession is

    . On a scale of how badly you can violate a person, possession is up there with

    .

    Leaving aside the glaring plot hole where it isn't even possible for Nephilim to possess fallen angels (Fitzpatrick explains this by saying "devilcraft, because shut up"). Leaving aside the fact that the "facility" that Dante is referring to

    .

    Leaving aside all that...Nora Grey, do you even realize the hypocrisy, the ignorance and the moral indecency of your actions??

    Why the hell am I even asking? It's Nora

    Grey.

    I am

    at this book. And this author.

    At this point I could not believe what I was reading. I actually had a word with my friend Jim about it. At one point I actually begged him to convince me that it was a trick. Surely this would be the whole point of the novel, right? This is how I wanted it to end:

    Nora gets in over her head and ends up getting her whole Nephilim army to learn the art of possession, leading to a meaningless war of possession left right of centre, thus perfectly illustrating the absurdity of war and how in reality there aren't always clear-cut good guys and bad guys; conflict is not black and white, folks! It would be an interesting reflection on our culture and history, which isn't often seen in the YA genre. In the end, Patch or someone would show Nora the error of her ways and...peaceful conclusion or something?

    My friend Jim politely reminded me exactly what book series I was reading, and that it was, in all likelihood, not going to end well.

    But I tried to convince myself. I really did. It was the

    to make it better. It simply

    to be put right.

    So did it? I'll give you three guesses.

    After a scene where a beaten up, nameless prisoner fallen angel is possessed my Nora...it's not mentioned again.

    At first, it felt like Becca Fitzpatrick had just conveniently

    this whole plot line. Just like in a scene where poor Patch laments the fact the has no sense of touch and can't feel Nora's kisses, but on the next page touches her cheek and remarks that she feels cold (

    ).

    But no, Nora actually going ahead and possessing a fallen angel is never mentioned...until it serves as the crux of the entire series. She possesses Dante (bad guy all along, who would have guessed!) in order to kill him...and that somehow makes all the fallen angels except Patch die as well (devilcraft, because shut up).

    All is well. Nora and Patch get married and have endless facenoms. BFF Vee Sky is revealed to be Nephilim for absolutely no reason whatsoever and Scott dies. Such a shame, he was so ineffectual in this series, I shall miss him.

    That's the series.

    And the moral of the story? Possession is inherently wrong, so the good guys give the evil-possessing guys a taste of their own medicine and possess them right back. And live happily ever after.

    Huh. I guess it does sum up how

    terrible war is after all.

    Except what are we left with? Thousands of readers who didn't get it. Thousands of readers who truly believe that this series is actually a fantastic piece of literature.

    After four books, four reviews, countless rage, and tears wept for the sake of humanity, this is where it ends.

    Becca Fitzpatrick, either educate yourself or get the fuck out of the publishing industry.

    Friends, I hope my anger amuses you.

    Fans of the series.......uuuuuggghhhhhh...

    I am completely, vehemently, DONE.

    See, you're even making

    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 for one reason only: the money. I understand that the life of an author is a hard one, but whatever happened to the damn story?!It just sad. Writing books should never be about just the money; it should be about making an impact on society, actually furthering your story arc, something, anything but swindling people out of their hard-earned cash on a book that really should never have been published. But that's the world we live in today, isn't it? Authors that actually have good, original, stories and put their heart and soul into their writing are turned down just because of today's pop culture; those millions of little idiotic girls screaming for the next Edward and Bella. I don't think I've ever been more unhappy to see a book published than Twilight; honestly, it changed the whole dynamic for YA and that's basically all we've gotten since then. Shit-tons of TSTL girls, overly protective-and in some ways downright abusive- guys, with plots as slow as molasses, horrible research skills, and characters/ story arcs that authors just add in or throw out for the hell of it.

    I'm sick. Sick and tired of it. This is what I feel like doing to all of those authors right about now:

    Oh, and some of this:
