1. Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick was published in 2012. It is 454 pages long and the fourth and final book in the series. It can be categorized as both a romance and science-fiction novel due to its content with fallen angels and magic. It takes place in Coldwater, Maine in present-day.

2a.) In the previous books in this series, Nora Grey, a Nephilim, falls in love with Patch Cipriano, a fallen angel. Nephilim is a race conceived between angels and human females. A fallen angel is one who was banished Heaven and was sent to live on Earth. They can be sent to Hell only by burning the last feather of their former angel wings which were ripped from their backs when they were sent to Earth. They can't feel physical pain or pleasure, only pain when the wing scars on their backs are disturbed. However, during the month of Cheshvan which takes place around October and November, a fallen angel can inhabit the body of a Nephil, thus giving them the ability to feel both pain and pleasure. At the end of Silence, the book previous to this one, Nora Grey must swear a blood oath to the Black Hand, who is the leader of the Nephilim army. She learns at this end of this novel that the Black Hand is her biological father, which is also when she learns she is Nephilim. Nora and Patch kidnap and restrain the Black Hand, and he threatens to kill Nora and her mother if she doesn't continue to lead the Nephilim army. They swear a blood oath, which will automatically kill the party that betrays their side of the oath. Immediately after this blood oath has taken place, the Black Hand tries to burn Patch's feather. To keep the Black Hand from sending Patch to Hell, Nora shoots him before he has the chance. She now has to lead the Nephilim army. However, she also made a blood oath with the archangels, who are the more prestigious angels, that she would bring peace between Nephilim and fallen angels. By making this oath, the Archangels agreed not to send Patch to Hell. This means that not

By the time I reached Greta, Fitzpatrick was gone. The house looked as if a willy-willy had swept through it; the stools were on the ground, the bookshelf had toppled over and the contents were strewn on the floor. Dan and Kate had rushed to explain what had happened, how Fitzpatrick had behaved and what mother had done to protect…

    From first hand experience, I know that Anthony Fitzpatrick understands students on a level that few educators do. In fact, in all my years of school, he is the only teacher to be able to effectively communicate with me. Due to this, I credit him with nearly all my academic success ever since we first met when I was in eighth grade. In addition to my story, there are a plethora of kids who have similar stories and relationships with Mr.Fitz. The recipient of the Teacher of the Year from Wake County…
