  1. In Crescendo Ayden and Freyrík face new obstacles in their relationship and new sacrifices must be made so that they could be together.
    Overall, Crescendo was a good sequel to the first book. Although Ayden and Freyrík maintain their characteristics of the first book (Ayden still is not very fond of humans and Freyrik still put the good of his people above all), they grew as a couple. They rely on each other.
    The plot of this book grabbed me from the beginning and kept me thus until the end.
