It doesn't have the 'wow' factor of the first one. The dress is awfully plain. I like that she is looking back so we don't see her face. The lightning and rain is good. Ditto the red feather but... where's Patch?
The Crescendo cover is okay. Sorry, better than okay, it's really good, but when compared to the first book... No where near the quality and impact of Hush Hush which has such movement and drama. I realize they had a lot to live up to but, gotta say, I'm a bit disappointed. That said, I'm dying to read the book!
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?
Coming out November 16, 2010!
