Product description

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? The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series . . . where love never dies.

Customer reviews

Don't get me wrong I do like this series, but this book felt like a filler to me, we don't find out anything new and Luce is starting to really annoy me, I feel like she only knows how to complain and act like a spoiled child who always gets her way, and I felt like screaming at her to grow up!!

On the other hand we do get a little bit of information (hidden of course but it's there) and we meet more fallen angels and "demons" (well technically there all fallen angels but some are more fallen than others?? That is a bit crazy but...) and the outcasts (the name says it all, their not accepted anywhere and truthfully their really creepy) and we find out a bit more about the announcers.

Other than that the most entertaining bit is when we meet Luce's new roommate, Shelby who is amazing (I seem to prefer the secondary characters in this series much more than the main) and amazing. Also we finally get to meet Callie (Luce's best friend) and Arriane comes back even if it's for a short period of time and I loved the thanksgiving dinner with everyone it was so funny^^

I loved this book I can't wait to read passion it's a great series would suggest it to anyone wanting a good book

I agree with most of the other reviews....the 2nd book was not as fleshy as the first book BUT still a good read that I finished in 2 days coz I couldn't wait to see where the story went (btw it didn't go very far).

I don't know if it's coz I'm not a teenager but I personally find Luce quite annoying and there was a def lack of any Daniel story in this book. Like Twilight I am def team Daniel/Edward :).

I'm looking forward to the 3rd book in the series as the author has stated it will fill in the entire back story of Luce and Daniel's Story - yay!!

In the end; it is a good page turning story that is hard to put down but super easy to read.

Well the other reviewers had pretty much said everything but sometimes, you just need to vent the book out. I'd rate it about 3.75 stars because it wasn't too Twilightly but the aspects of it still there (I'm not a fan of Twilight at all). But one thing I do love about this book is that it introduces a love square with Luce being fought over Cam, Daniel and Miles.

I am on Team Cam (if it exists) as you can tell that Cam does care for Luce in his own demonic ways and I hope that it will get explored eventually. I really do hope that Lauren Kate would not make Luce and Daniel togeather, it would just disapoint so many of her fans.

If you liked Fallen then you will enjoy Torment as Luce finally gets some character development, even though the whole book is her whining about how she dosn't know everything and her pyning away for Daniel.

Fallen and Torment! What can I say! They are a really good book. If you haven't read them then I strong suggest that you should because the adventures that Luce has is quite amazing.
Well just saying that I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!
