Lauren Kate; Fallen


  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Hardcover: 464 pages
  • Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers (December 8, 2009)

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.

My Review:
 Do you love roller coasters? That is exactly how this books makes you feel. The suspense it exquisite and intense. This book seems to just come alive right out of the pages.
   Luce a misunderstood she seems so confused with what life has handed her. When she gets sent off to Sword & Cross reform school. It ends up being a life changing event. She gets thrown in amongst people she does not know if she should trust them or not. Arriane seems already attached and like a best friend. Cam is already wanting more then she is wanting to give or is she? Daniel is a mystery in it's self that she seems drawn too. She feels a cosmic pull from him. So who is she to trust, befriend and love? All the characters were so realistic I felt I knew them myself. I could truly picture them.
 Fallen was well written. The suspense didn't let you down. I don't want to write to much about this book because it's good enough that you SHOULD just go out and get it. It's a quick read, but I think that had to do with how engulfed I was in the book.

Now I am waiting for a sequel.
