Fallen Review

Title: Fallen

Author: Lauren Kate

Book: (Fallen, #1)

Pages: 464

Rating: 4/5

I personally love Fallen by Lauren Kate but the rest of the series well...I'll get to that later. I have never been interested in fallen angels but this book changed my mind. Ok some of the romance parts were so so bad! I was laughing so loud and so hard I couldn't breathe! Not the point though. Other parts were serious and overall I loved the book!
Lucinda Price (Luce) is sent to Sword & Cross boarding school in Savannah when she has to abandon her old school because of an accident. She never meant for it to happen. She never knew that the shadows (only she can see) could hurt anyone. That doesn't matter though because no one believes that it wasn't her fault. So here she is stuck in hell trying to make the best of it.
Daniel Grigori is a handsome guy at her school that goes out of his way to avoid her despite the strong connection they have to each other. She feels she knows him from somewhere but can't figure out where and she is determined to find out. She knows he's hiding something from her but can't discover what he is on her own.
Cam is a bad boy who takes an eager interest in Luce and seems to appear when she least expects it. She likes him but it doesn't feel right. Not like it does when she's with Daniel. When Cam messes up Daniel shows up to save her and that is when she figures out something is wrong. She's supposed to die when she kisses him. It's inevitable but for some reason she lives.
Something must've changed! In all her past lives she has died but now she discovers the truth about Daniel, Cam, and several others at the school. The truth is so frightening that she might not be able to survive it.
Ok I'm being a bit dramatic but some parts of the book are intense. Very few but they are enough to make the book great! My friend recommended this book and I'm glad she did because I might have never read it if it weren't for her. Look for my reviews on the next few books in the series and the in-between novel. Hope you agree with my review and if you haven't read it I definitely recommend it even if the writing is a bit juvenile.
