There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
Lauren Kate’s Fallen is a compellingly dark and sexy page turner. I was thoroughly entertained by the setting and characters that Lauren created in Fallen. If you go by the synopsis, readers wouldn’t know that there’s a love triangle in this book. I for one loved that there were two guys (sort of ) vying for Luce’s attentions.
There were other interesting and exciting characters in this book that I enjoyed getting to know. I thought the secondary characters were well rounded and each character had important rolls centered around Luce in a major way. While I had no problems figuring out one angle in the story, Kate managed to keep me in the dark on a few others which I didn’t see coming. I loved the mystery behind Daniel and Luce’s relationship and the forbidden love twist kept me on edge while trying to figure out if love would prevail.
I know I can’t wait to see what Torment, the next book in the Fallen Series has in store for us. With the way certain events panned out in Fallen, I’m curious know more about the past events that happened in these characters lives.
