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.
It seems like that the fallen angels are the new vampires these days…whatever that means. The book seems to have the same old plot (with a bit of tweak, of course) with the same old subject matters, such as angels and demons. Can you tell that I wasn’t impressed with this book? :-)
It’s hard to get into a book when it doesn’t really tell you much (even till the end!) plus the interactions between the main characters don’t really start until after two-thirds of the book. You can tell this book was clearly meant to have a sequel because everything seemed to be “saved” for the next book.
Also, I felt like the author was leaving too much to my own imagination (for example, it doesn’t even describe the battle scene between the fallen angels other than noises the main character hears). I thought that was the writer’s job! :-)
Yes, it’s intriguing and yes, I’m sure I’ll read its sequel, Torment, just so I know what’s all that about in the first book so I don’t feel like I wasted timer reading it! :-) Plus, who knows, I might get really into it and even like it! I can always hope…. *^^*
