Hush Hush is the first book in a new series about fallen angels and the Nephilim, offspring of fallen angels and humans. When Nora Grey, a high school sophomore, who lives with her recently widowed mother in Portland, Maine, meets Patch, her hot new biology partner, she immediately knows heís trouble. When she analyzes her feelings for him, she thinks, "Part of me wanted to run away from him screaming, Fire! A more reckless part was tempted to see how close I could get without... combusting" Then she meets Eliot, a transfer student who is the prime suspect in a murder at his former prep school. Nora uses her journalistic skills to investigate the two boys and finds out Patch is a fallen angel who can either become human by sacrificing her or return to heaven by saving her. She ultimately becomes a pawn in their complicated game of revenge. The exhilarating action as Nora experiences wild hallucinations and life-threatening attacks will keep readers furiously turning pages.  The sequel Crescendo continues the saga, exploring her fatherís mysterious death and Noraís connections to the Nephilim.  (Book Talk Author: Sharon Nehls, The Colorado Blue Spruce Award nominee 2012)
