Luce must spend her senior year at reform school after her boyfriend dies in a mysterious fire. She suspects that the dark shadows that have tormented her all her life had something to do with it. When she meets supernaturally gorgeous Daniel, she feels a familiar longing, making her believe they have met before. Although Cam is clearly interested in her, Luce only wants Daniel, who runs both hot and cold. He tries to keep Luce at a distance, telling her that the truth would kill her as it has many times before.

Why I love Fallen:
Besides vampires and werewolves, angels are a leading trend in the YA Literature these days. Notable examples include Hush, Hush by Becca and Fallen by Lauren Kate. There are mix reviews for Fallen, but personally, I think the book was great! First of all, I have to appraise the cover of this book. It has a gothic appearance which is both mysterious and captivating. Lauren Kate’s writing is skillful and flowing and the descriptions are very well-written. My interest was sparked at the beginning, and the intriguing plot urged me to keep on reading. The characters in this novel felt real and alive. I love Luce and Daniel the best! The ending was a real cliffhanger because there were still many unrefuted questions which kept me waiting anxiously for the sequel, Torment. Fallen really made me squeal with delight!
