Publisher: Simon & Schuster's Children's Publishing 
Release Date: October 19, 2010

Summary (from Goodreads):
The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush!
Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she 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?

I really enjoyed the first novel Hush, Hush and I'm mostly definitely looking forward to reading this sequel. I absolutely love the cover of Hush, Hush and Crescendo certainly has another cool cover! Patch is one bad boy who can instantly have any girl swooning. I can't wait to see some more Patch and learn more about Nora's past!

  1. I'm so waiting on this one too! It's been so long with I read Hush Hush. Almost a year. I think I need to reread it.

  2. Nice pick, I read Hush Hush a while ago and might have to rerad it before I start Crescendo.

  3. Great pick! It's already been ordered from Amazon and is just sitting there until it can be shipped out and in my hands! It can't get here soon enough.

    I agree, the cover is awesome!

    Happy reading!
