Summary from publisher's website: Nora should know better than to think her life can return to normal after falling in love with a fallen angel. And Nora's life isn't normal - her dad was murdered, and the facts about his death just don't add up. Now Nora's own life is in imminent danger. Are she and Patch strong enough for the battle ahead?
Becca Fitzpatrick's debut novel Hush, Hush made a big impression on me last year. I'd been desperate to read it, and when I heard that Simon and Schuster UK were holding a special reading of the first few chapters at Trafalgar Square in London, I just had to be there. Despite being one of the rainiest nights of the year, it was an amazingly atmospheric occasion and I came away with my very own copy of the book. Which, as it turned out, was awesome. I loved it for its dark intensity, its mystery, and most of all for the massive chemistry between Nora and Patch.
But, it left me wanting more. And one area of Hush, Hush that I really wanted to know more about was the mystery of what happened to Nora's dad. So, the summary for Crescendo - the second book in the fallen angel series - is like music to my ears. Plus, take a look at that cover!
Happily for me, the UK paperback edition of Hush, Hush is out this week, and it contains the first chapter of this much-anticipated sequel. I've read it, and I'm now full of questions (and general crazed excitement) about what Crescendo has in store for us. As far as I'm concerned, October can't come around fast enough.
Crescendo is out in the UK and US in October 2010.
