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.
Lucinda Price is a seventeen-year old girl sent to a reform school Swords and Cross after the tragedy that happened to her ex-boyfriend Trevor. And, because of the tragedy everyone thinks that Luce was responsible for it and even she, thinks the same. While in the school, she met many friends and enemies as well. She fell in love with the good-looking and highly intelligent Daniel at their reform school but soon discovered that he is a fallen angel, cursed, and destined neither to ascend to Heaven nor descend to Hell. The two realized that they have spent their lifetimes finding and losing one another, and face the final challenge to keep evil forces at bay and seek redemption for all.
Now, it is not only Daniel who wants Luce: Cam is another fallen angel who sided with Hell (a demon) and he is eager to have Luce even if Daniel fights with him.
In the first installment of Lauren Kate’s Fallen Novels, Fallen, she showcased a new approach to the typical young adult fantasy romance. Amidst the rise of vampires and werewolves, Kate has brought a new genre of characters – angels and demons.
If you’re a fan of Twilight, you’ll surely love this new saga. And, if you think that Edward and Bella’s love story is the best that you’ve read, think again because Lauren Kate has brought Lucinda Price and the gorgeous fallen angel Daniel Grigori. Though the personality of the characters in this novel is much like Twilight’s, what makes it exciting is the mystery behind the story of the main characters.
After I’ve read the first book, I just fell in love with it and I couldn’t wait to read the next book (Torment).I’m just so envy with Luce because of the two gorgeous angels are fighting over her. However, it left me so curious of what is behind the curse of Daniel and Luce. How does an angel fall in love? And is it worthy for Daniel to fight for his Love for Luce? The author didn’t give everything in this novel and I think that it is an effective technique to keep the readers wanting for more.
