Book Review: Fallen by: Lauren Kate

Summary: 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.

Fallen by Lauren Kate was a pretty good book. I loved how the story began and I loved how the story ended but the middle left a bit to be desired. The main concept of the book was mystery, Ms. Kate used mystery to build up the plot, the characters, and everything about the book. During the middle of the book I reached a point when I thought "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH". I just wanted to know what the heck was going on, and I got tired of trying to figure it out for most of the book. The ending was wonderful and the characters were equally as wonderful. I will of course look out for the next book, the epilogue made sure of that.

  1. Just discovered your site today :D
    This is one of the book I've been dying to read since the past year. And the fact that it received a very mixed review makes me want to read it even more. It is lovely to hear that you like this book! Thanks for the great review =)

  2. Great review, and I have to say that I felt quite the same when reading this. It was sooooo drawn out halfway though that I was almost too tired when the action finally began. I'm hoping that Crescendo is better :)

  3. It sounds like a great read! I am really looking forward to reading it and great review!

  4. I've seen lots of mixed reviews on this one but I still really want to read it! I'll have to see how I get on with it LOL

  5. i'm about to review this book on my blog shortly. i felt very similar to you, i wanted the damn story to hurry up already and then once it did i loved it. can't wait for the next one!

  6. I really hated this book, it seemed all over the place. It seemed so random and made no sense to me. If Lauren Kate can get published then it seems anyone can.
