Synopsis: Instant. Intense. Weirdly familiar… The moment Luce looks at Daniel she knows she has never felt like this before. Except she can’t shake the feeling that she has…and with him – a boy she doesn’t remember ever setting eyes on.
Will her attempt to find out why enlighten her – or destroy her?
I LOVED this book. So much so that I literally ran from my house the minute I finished it to go and buy Torment which is currently winking at me from my desk. I’m very excited to get started.
Fallen follows Luce, a girl with a troubled past, on her first day at Sword & Cross, a reform school for troubled, young criminals. As she struggles to adapt to her new surroundings and come to terms with her past, she meets two very different guys; Cam, sweet and charismatic, and Daniel, mysterious and silent. Both Babes ;) Luce soon finds herself in a strange love triangle with them both.
The paranormal aspect of the story is very well portrayed. The reform school is situated next to a large cemetery which gives a creepy element to the story. On top of that Luce battles with her visions of Shadows which have haunted her most of her life. And then there is Daniel and his mysterious behavior...?
"He felt her touch as though it were burning through his shirt, her hand laid gently on his shoulder, causing him to gasp. They had not yet touched in this life, and the first contact always left him breathless" Page 5
Fallen is a story of forbidden and timeless love and is so terribly romantic and tragic! I love the relationship between Daniel and Luce. The exciting ending left Luce (and me) with many unanswered questions of which I cannot wait to find out the answers to. The minute this is posted I’ll be starting Torment!
I definitely recommend this book! 5/5
