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." -Book Cover
Lucinda Price, Luce, saw shadows for as long as she can remember, she saw doctors and took pills her entire life 'cause they thought she was crazy, but she's not. Last summer there was a terrible accident, a boy she knew died, she's doesn't remember exactly what happened, but one thing is sure, everyone thinks she's guilty. That's how she ended up at Sword & Cross, some kind of reform school for freaky teens.There are two boys especially attracting Luce's attention. Cam an easy out-going boy that was nice to her the very first second they met, always going out of his way to make her happy, but all of it seems weird. What is he hiding? What are his intentions? Daniel. This guy really gets to Luce, she can't stop thinking of him, dreams about him, but the guy is totally rude to her. Hot and Cold most of the time and leaves you wondering what the hell is his problem?
I LOVED this book. I think the story is very well written, the characters are precisely drawn with their individual specifics and the atmosphere is beyond!
Let's make this clear, this is NOT an action-packed book, if that's what you are expecting you might be disappointed. This is a book where the psychology part of the story is very important, the book felt like a crescendo. Events piles up until the grand final, and let me tell you, this is one great final! I knew the book was about fallen angels for reading it on other blogs, but I NEVER saw the ending blow coming. It was so surprising that I feel like I'm gonna read the book again to re-live all the events from a different perspective.
Dark, seductive, mysterious. Fallen is a fantastic and unforgettable love story. I am dying to read the next book, there are so many questions unanswered and I have to wait until September 2010? There is one word to describe that Lauren Kate ; Torture!
I want more of that story, may Torment release sooner pretty please!
