Description


"A fantastically imaginative and original story of music-based magic and Robin Hood-style outlaws. If you loved Firefly, this one's a must-read. I've been handing The Hush to everyone I know." —Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of Illuminae and These Broken Stars

Chester has been traveling from village to village, searching for his kidnapped father. One night while fiddling to earn a few coins, he accidentally connects to the Song, the music that fuels every aspect of the world. It’s illegal to interact with the Song—only a licensed Songshaper may bend music to his will—and when Chester is caught, he’s sentenced to death.

But just before the axe is about to fall, someone in the crowd—a member of the infamous Nightfall Gang—stages a daring rescue, whisking Chester into the Hush, a shadowy nightmare mirror-world where Music can be deadly and Echoes can kill.

Susannah, captain of the Nightfall Gang has been watching Chester. She needs his special talent to pull off an elaborate plan. And she’ll risk everything to succeed. Even Chester’s life.

Combining complex stakes and shifting loyalties, The Hush is a lush and exhilarating fantasy you won’t be able to put down.
