Hell on earth.

That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel. It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts--immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something--something dangerous. What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

And don't miss FALLEN on the big screen! The first book in the worldwide bestselling FALLEN series is now a motion picture available for streaming.

Still not a lot of details on what exactly is going on. A lot of teenage angst without why, which I guess is typical for teenagers. The 3rd book Passion will hopefully provide a few more answers.

A lot of stuff is repeated over and over again, it gets annoying. This book also makes you kinda sad, cause the main character is to absorbed in love, that when Luce and Daniel do get together and everything is peaceful you wonder how long they'll last. You realize that their love is going to be boring without all this conflicts keeping them away.

This one was quite disappointing. I enjoyed the first book, but this one had too much soppiness and was going into too much detail over things that had happened in the last book. Only got about 5 chapters through and gave up. It kinda reminded me of Twilight =/

This was an improvemnt over the first book. The character Luce hadmore depth. Yes she was still uber obsessed with Daniel, but there were other people in her life.
The story was well rounded and I am looking forward to reading the next book.

Nov 20, 2010

Torment picks up only a couple of days later as Luce makes her way to Shoreline, a school in northern California for unusually gifted students. Her classmates are Nephalim--children who are part human, part fallen angel and Luce will board and study with them at this safe haven until Daniel returns for her.

At the school, Luce is more comfortable and less of an outsider than she ever was at Sword and Cross, but it's what she doesn't know that still haunts her. Eventually, she learns the Shadows that plague her are windows to events from her lives, both current and past. She intends to manipulate them and illuminate her relationship with Daniel. The problem? The Shadows only reveal a glimpse. Sometimes partial understanding is more misleading than none at all. Ultimately, viewing her past confuses Luce. And, adding to her sense of bewilderment is Luce's new friend Miles, a warm, funny, open guy who is so different than Daniel.

I really hadn't enjoyed the first book but decided to give the second book a chance, I am so glad I did..torment pulls you deeper into the unfolding story and leave you wanting to read the next! The eighteen-day countdown as the end of the truce nears creates a fast-paced read. Following an exciting climax, author Lauren Kate leaves the reader with another cliffhanger ending and a lot of unanswered questions. so now I'm waiting for the next book, Passion, due to hit shelves in the summer of 2011.
