Book in a Series - Hush, Hush Series

Don't you hate it when you are reading a book and it's part of a book series and you have to wait FOREVER for the next book to come out.  Then you get the next book and you can't remember where it left off?  Well I'm going to summarize a book in a series that I've read so that when I get the next book I can look at my summary and know what happened.  Warning, the following contains spoilers!

Hush, Hush Series
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Silence - 10/14/11

Patch was a fallen Angel in Hush, Hush and he saved Nora's life at the end of that book and became her Guardian Angel.

Scott, a childhood friend of Nora has just moved back into town.  So her mother invites him and his mom over and has Nora give Scott a tour of the town.  Her and Patch break up after having an arguement.  Also she is trying to find out what really happened to her father on the night he died.  She is also having strange dreams and sees Marcie's father in them, Frank Millar.  She ends up going to a bar with Scott and there she sees Marcie hanging all over Patch.  A fight breaks out and a gun goes off and Patch gives her the keys to his jeep to get home.

Nora is suspicious of Scott and breaks into his room and steals a box.  There is something there about the "Black Hand" and she tries to find out what it is.  She thinks someone is following her.  Scott comes to her house and demands the ring back.  Then Rixon comes in with Vee and a fight breaks out between Scott and Rixon.  Scott is taken into police custody and they figure out he is a nephillim.  

Vee, Rixon & Nora go to the amusement park and while they are there, Scott breaks out.  He comes looking for Nora and Rixon grabs her and tells her he's taking her to a safe place.  She touches Rixon's scar and sees that he is the one that killed her father.  He says the only reason he was dating Vee was to get close to Nora.  He wants to use her as a human sacrifice.  Patch comes in time and saves her.  He send Rixon to hell.  

Patch and Nora tell eachother they love eachother and then Frank Millar comes (he's Nora's real father).  Patch in her mind tells her to run and get in his jeep when he starts fighting.  The last line in the book is Frank saying "Tell me Nora.  Was it you who killed my dear friend, Chauncey Langeais?"

Supernatural - The Man Who Knew Too Much

Season Finale.

This episode is all about Sam.

We start out with Sam running from cops and goes into a bar.  There he meets a girl and tells her that he doesn't remember who he is.  She decides to help him.  He gets flashes and finds a hotel and goes there.  There are fake IDs and he has another flash and finds out he's Sam.  Then decides to go visit Bobby and drives the Impala.  Someone is trying to kill him and it turns out to be himself.  Turns out he's in a coma from the wall being torn down by Castiel.  He did it so they would stop fighting him.  Sam has to face and kill himself in order to put his soul back together.  One is Sam without his soul and he shoots him.  Then we find out the bartender that's been with him is actually one he shot when a demon of some sort had her at knife point and said he would kill her and soulless Sam just shoots her to get to that demon.  He then has to face Sam that remembers hell.  He ends up stabbing him and gets all his soul back.

Meanwhile, Dean and Bobby decide to go after Castiel and Crowley since they have blood from the Dr to open up a gate to Purgatory.  Castiel has the blood and Crowley and Raphael come and take the blood.  They perform the ritual with the blood and it doesn't work.  Dean & Bobby are watching nearby.  Castiel comes and he had given them fake blood and he has all the souls in him and is all powerful.  He kills Raphael and lets Crowley go (he has other plans for him).  Dean tries to convince him to release the souls but he won't.  Sam comes and stabs Castiel but he has he can't be killed since he's no longer an angel but the new God.  He tells them to either bow down to him or face destruction.

And that is how the season ends.

Georgina Kincaid Series
Succubus Shadows - Richelle Mead
Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid, #5)

Succubus Revealed - 08/30/11

Seth (Georgina's former boyfriend) has been dating her friend Maddie.  Of course Maddie has no idea that Georgina and Seth were dating since they kept their relationship a secret and she asks her to help with the wedding planning.  Georgina is very depressed throughout the book and then a siren song calls to her.  She finally decides to give in and is brought to another place by the sons of Nyx.  They torture her by showing her dreams, some are real and some are not so that she can just get confused on what is real and what is not and go crazy.  Simone, another succubus is posing as Georgina and trying to corrupt Seth some more.  But his soul has already been corrupted from when him and Georgina had sex together while he was with Maddie.

Her friends find out that Simone is really not Georgina and they use Erik to get her back.  After some failed attempts, finally Seth is able to bring her back.  Which apparently was supposed to be impossible.  He sees her in her original body, as Letha.

Georgina had been rooming with Roman (the Nephillim) and he helps her recover.  When she wakes up she finds out that Seth has broken off the engagement and has disappeared.  She calls a favor in from Jerome and he sends her to Seth.  They almost have sex but she pulls back.  After he's asleep she decides to leave and leaves a note saying she loves him too much to stay.  When she returns she finds out that someone tried to kill Erik.  She goes to him and he tells her that there are two contracts and then she kisses him (which is a merciful way for him to die).

In the end pictures come out of her and Seth in Mexico and she quits the bookstore and her and Seth decide to be together even if it corrupts his soul.  He calls her Letha, which she is surprised to her since nobody has ever told him that name.

While in Paradise he attends high school and meets Sarah Hart and her ex-boyfriend Mark James.  He stands up to Mark and that's the first time he's done that since he's supposed to just blend in and not draw attention to himself.  While at school he develops his first legacy and leaves school early.  All Garde possess Telekineses and then develop a unique legacy.  John's first legacy is Lumen, which allows him to produce light and be resistant to fire and heat.  Henri begins to train him and he learns more about Lorien and the Mogadoriens.

At a party there's a fire and he saves Sarah and shows his abilities.  There is a fight at the school since the Mogadoriens find him and he also meets up with number Six.  So the charm is broken.  He develops his other legacy, which is talking to animals.  Henri dies in the fight.

 At the end John, Six, Sam & Bernie Kosar (his dog from Lorien) leave Paradise and leave behind Mark & Sarah.  They are going to search for the other Garde so they can defeat the Mogadoriens.

Supernatural - Mommy Dearest

So now that the Winchesters have the Phoenix ash they can get rid of Eve.  Oh and Supernatural has been renewed for another season.  Yay!

Dean is packing some bullets with the ash and says it doesn't hurt him and so how could it hurt Eve.  They have to figure out how to get her and ask Castiel to help find her.  They get the idea to find a monster that is against her and Castiel goes and gets Lenora.  She was a few seasons back as a vampire that was living off animal blood.  She told them where Eve is and asks for them to kill her.  Castiel does the job when the boys can't.

So they go to Grant Pass, Oregon where she has been infecting people with something that is killing them.  They finally go to Eve at a diner where she's a waitress and a room full of hybrids.  The perfect monster as she calls them and all the people that were dying were betas.  She finally got it right.  She said that she was happy with the arrangement she had and that it all changed when Crowley started taking her monsters and even first borns and killing them.  She says that Crowley is still alive and she will leave and not hurt the boys and friends/family if they work for her in eliminating Crowley.  Dean gets her to bite him and he's drank the Phoenix Ash and she dies.

The world is saved but now they wonder if Crowley is dead or alive and Castiel says he'll look into it.  Then we see him and Crowley talking and Crowley saying he's cleaning up his messes again.  So looks like Castiel is keeping Crowley around for some reason.

Sam and Dean.
