"Waiting on" Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming releases you're looking forward to.


Crescendo
by Becca Fitzpatrick
November 16, 2010

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 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 farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line 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 Hush, Hush and was totally hooked on it, so naturally, I'm pining for the sequel. I love Nora and Patch together and I can't wait to read more about their romance, but I'm particularly intrigued by Nora's father. I can't wait to delve into the secrets of his life and find out what really happened to him. The cover is gorgeous, too, and I'm sure it will be a very good addition to my bookshelf!

  17. I'm a sucker for a great cover. It's the story that makes the book, but it's the cover that makes you pick it up...and this is one that will definitely be picked up.

    Found you through the Hop :o)
