As of June 9, 2012 I will no longer be accepting e-books for review. This is due to the overwhelming
demand of reviews, work and night classes taking up a lot of my spare time. It
is taking me several months to read and post reviews therefore until “my to be
reviewed list” is smaller I will no longer accept any more e-books for review.
I am extremely sorry.

Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate


Some Angels are Destined to Fall

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. Excerpt from Lauren’s website.

Fallen reminded me of two other series that I have read. In my opinion if you mush Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick with The Immortal Series by Alyson Noel you get Fallen. Fallen was written beautifully and I really liked the concept. But for me it just didn’t have the wow factor that blew me away.

I liked how each of the characters has some sort of problem that they had to deal with and how you never really knew which of Luce’s friends you should trust and dislike.

Overall, I found the novel okay. For any fallen angel’s lover I’m sure this is one novel you would like to add to your collection.
