Crescendo by Konstanze KwietTitle Design: SylviaCho
 
Author’s Note
This book was written for my sister, Shoshi Kwiet, an ardent fan of Stephenie Meyer’s
Twilight 
series. There are two main reasons why it is not a sequel – it would be a flagrant infringementof copyright and I have not read any of the
Twilight 
novels. More a “freequel”, it is set in Forksand mentions some of the characters created by Meyer, but my protagonists and their dramasare not connected to hers. I should acknowledge however that the Swans, the Hales and theCullens, of whom only Sergeant Swan plays a role in
Crescendo
, were all created by Meyer and that I do not want to pass them off as my invention.Even writing a freequel put limitations on me – it predetermined the genre, the characters andthe rating –, but within these restrictions, I have taken some liberties. While Meyer andCharlaine Harris have reinvented the vampire legend (Vampires in the sun? Vampiresweakened by silver?), I have returned to the traditional vampire archetype of Bram Stoker and,well,
 Buffy
.For this, and for a myriad of mistakes, my sister will be angry with me. But I beg you, dear Shoshi, to see this as a book inspired by, but not to be judged against
Twilight 
, and as a sign of my love for you.K.March 20092
