Fallen by Lauren Kate



The story of Luce starts slowly, but catches your attention.  Luce is sent to Sword and Cross, a private reform school, as a last resort after her ex-boyfriend dies in a fire everyone thinks she caused.    While at the school, Luce meets two different boys.  Cam is the “in your face” always happy to be near Luce.  Daniel is standoffish bad boy of the school.  Guess which one Luce falls for?

The story continues on telling the struggle Luce has not falling for Daniel.  Eventually, Luce realizes Daniel and Cam are Fallen Angels and that not all Fallen Angels are good guys.  She realizes that many of her friends at the Sword and Cross are not who she thinks they are.  Eventually, she learns that she is not who she thought she was.  The odd things that happen to and around her and not necessarily as it seems.

Although I initially struggled with reading this book, I am anxiously awaiting the time to start Book 2 of this series, Fallen.  The friendships Luces makes at the reform school truly show how far a best friend would go to help or save her friend.  The romance between Daniel and Luce is just starting and I cannot wait to see how it grows.  Luce is special, how special I am still waiting to find the answer.  I have just downloaded book 2 and cannot wait to start.  Definitely worth reading and sharing.
