Other Titles by this Author: The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove (12/11/09)
Daniel’s gaze caught hers, and her breath caught in her throat. She recognised him from somewhere. But she would have remembered meeting someone like him. She would have remembered feeling as absolutely shaken up as she did right now.
But what do you do when the person you’ve spent your whole life looking for keeps slipping out of your grasp? What if the person who are meant to be with can never be yours?
Dangerously addictive and darkly romantic, Fallen is the ultimate gothic love story - a page-turning thriller about fallen angels.
Fallen is everything I like in a book: mystery, elements of the supernatural and a compelling forbidden love. It was addictive.
This book blew me away. I found myself eager to get home so that I could read more and unwilling to put it down for even a second when I did. Lauren Kate has a beautiful, fluid writing style filled with intricate descriptions that made Fallen utterly compulsive. There were some parts of the book that nothing much happened in, but it didn’t matter. I was frantically trying to add up the clues and get some answers so it didn’t feel slow at all.
Fallen was full of mystery. I wanted to know what the shadows were, what happened the night Trevor died, but mostly, what all of the characters did to get themselves stuck in reform school! Although a few of the mysteries were resolved near the end, I still have loads of questions - mostly surrounding Daniel!
I really loved Daniel. He was gorgeous, mysterious, infuriating and utterly irresistible. but the other boy in Luce’s life, Cam, was so overly nice he put me on edge. Yes, I’m paranoid like that! He just seemed a little too good to be true. Arriane and Penn were awesome. Their quirky coolness set them apart from the usual best friend characters. I want to be friends with them!
Fallen is one of the best books that I’ve read in a long time and I’m literally aching for Torment, the next book in the series.
