“At the end of Hush, Hush, Nora escaped death at the hands of Chauncey, a Nephilim, and Patch had been made Nora's guardian angel. However, rules forbid angels from having any kind of romantic relationship with humans, and unless he wants to be sent to hell for good, Patch must end everything with Nora. Nora understands, but when she starts getting anonymous tips about her dad's killer, all the clues seem to point to Patch. Crescendo is a sequel that doesn't disappoint, and readers will be eager for the next book in this series.”
-- Emily Grossenbacher, Lemuria Bookstore, Jackson, MS


Description

Now in paperback, the New York Times bestselling sequel to Hush, Hush!

Despite starting a relationship with Patch, her guardian angel (whose title is the only angelic thing about him), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking good for Nora Grey. Aside from fearing her boyfriend is interested in her nemesis, Nora is haunted by images of her father and becomes obsessed with understanding his disappearance. As Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, she begins to wonder whether her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it. And since Patch isn’t answering her questions, Nora has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch—or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

The paperback will feature an exclusive first look at the next book in the Hush, Hush saga, on sale Fall 2012!
