So I had been kinda stubborn about reading this series, and not for the reasons you think.
I had seen this book during Christmas shopping season at a Target back in 09. My mom and I have this cool thing were we like to read books and compare our thoughts and this was a book she was interested in but I was already reading the Vampire Diaries and the Hunger Games so i declined.
I find myself reading this now because I learned that they made a movie about it and well I want to see it and before I see It i wanted to read it because honestly the book version of any story has more in depth look then a movie would.
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.
Okay so where should I start? When I started reading this I found Luce to be a bit of a mystery. This is because this girl has such a dark past, especially because of how her family treats her and the whole she see shadows bit.
Another cool factor is the glimpses of time you see in the text, there is so much history in this story that I gasp at how well written it is. You get to see how evolved these characters are and it leaves you wanting more by the end.
I really liked Sword & Cross, the pool inside the church is just hilarious. It set the “dark” vibe that the book/story needed.
In the beginning I really liked Cam, because he was very open/affectionate towards Luce but we all know that Daniel is whom she feels very attracted to even if she doesn’t understand why. I later regret being so gullible and letting Cam blind me with his open friendly self. Now Daniel, he’s is just such a great character, he’s just the right amount of “cold shoulder/mysterious” that makes you want to find out more about him. His passionate response to our main character makes him really likable and hot 😉 . Another character I really liked was Penn, she was a great supporting character and really helped Luce find out about Daniel’s past.
Overall the book did deliver what I expected and more. I finished it and quickly moved on to the next one which I will also write a review on. This book gets a 4 out of 5 and I do recommend it if you like a supernatural romance novel.
Till next time!
