Fallen by Lauren Kate
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.
First Sentence: Around midnight, her eyes at last took shape.
Oh my. Another angel book about a fallen angel and a human girl that fall in love and all hell breaks lose because of it. Oh look. I just made a pun. Get it? Hell? Fallen angel? Oh. I'm not that funny.
Anyways, avoiding my humor, (or therefore LACK of it) I cannot say that I liked this book as much as other squealing fangirls and romance freaks. I, for one, can say the very opposite and tell you that I dreaded to finish it. Ugh. . . I was fooled with the beautiful prologue. Darn me. . .
First, let's start off with the "romance". Girl meets boy. Boy ignores her. Girl has some creepy I-know-him-from-somewhere-and-I-just-HAVE-to-have-him moment. Drools over how hot he is. Some other dude comes in and tries to sweep the girl off of her feet. She ignores him and goes for the guy that OBVIOUSLY doesn't like her. He ends up loving her and revealing himself as some mythical creature. INSERT BIG EVENT HERE THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING. Then they're forced to be apart. Insert sequel here. This mostly happens in all of the fallen angel books I have come across. I. Hate. Those. With. A. Passion. Ha? You get it? It's the third book in this series.
Okay, so Daniel obviously doesn't want anything to do with Luce, so how does she respond? Oh I don't know. Stalks him until he reveals that he's some mythical creature. Oh wow. Hush, Hush much?
I personally liked Cameron because he was the most decent character, but, as usual, they have to turn into the bad guy. (I don't think that's a spoiler.)
Then you have these shallow characters that ALL OF A SUDDEN have something to do with the plot at the end, and the teacher isn't who you think she is. I saw all of it coming. All of it was predictable.
All in all, to avoid becoming some ranting blogger than everyone hates, I disliked this book greatly. I will not be looking forward to the next book.
As much as I didn't like the book, I have to admit that the cover is breathtaking.
