Luce would die for Daniel.

And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series.

My Review

 So those of you who have read Fallen and Torement know that Luce had been sent off to another school and met a bunch of new people/friends. While all this had taken place Luce was trying to figure out her past and future.  A Big Battle and a Time travel through announcers was the background for Passion.  I finally got a better idea of Luce and Daniel.  I still want to know more about Miles.  It all started to come together. The suspense was intense through the entire book. Yep, Lauren seems to love it. I do enjoy suspense but it was so much and was kinda driving me crazy. By the end of Passion you FINALLY got the point of all 3 books. It all fell into place. (FINALLY) I think Passion saved the series for me.

    The time travel confused me, isn't time travel affected by the butterfly effect?  I know and understand fate but a lot happened in those time traveling events and I swear things in the future should have had a more dramatic effect/change. Also if Luce had gone into the past shouldn't all the "friends" remembered her visiting in the past if she went back to the future?  LOL SEE... Confusing. Despite these issues, I actually enjoyed the book, every page. I was actually surprised, I figured Passion would end up like Torment.

So here's my final thoughts. Passion was a good read if I could have just turned my over thinking off. I normally just turn blinders on to some issues.  Maybe I am just knit picking. It's a powerful read and the suspense will grab hold. I don't think there was a slow or drawn out boring moment.  Passion gave an enlightened tale that lead you through time in search of beauty and shows you the meaning of sacrificing for love. I will continue to read the Fallen series since I am so invested in it. It can hold it's own with some rank. If you are a fan of starcrossed love than this series is screaming your name. I'm glad to say Passion made it's mark in YA.
