Well, I don't undestand what happens in those author's minds theses days...I mean, what's wrong with them? Why does every protagonist has to to be ridiculous, weak, boring and dependent on her love interest? Honestly? And I don't understand why her love interest has to be so controlling. I did NOT like this book. Lauren Kate is not a bad writer, but she has to develop more her ideias.show more

I PERSONALLY DISAGREE WITH THE BAD REVIEWS OF THIS BOOK AS IT IS ONE THAT TAKES SOME WARMING UP TO. I DID STRUGGLE AT THE START WITH IT BUT THE MORE I READ IT; THE MORE I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. ITS DARK...EERIE...AND DOES NOT LET UP ON ITS SECRETS VERY EASILY. SO FOR ALL THOSE READERS WHO DON'T LIKE SLOW WARMERS THIS BOOK ISN'T FOR THEM BUT ITS LIKE A MORSE TV SERIES IN THE FACT THAT ITS PACES ITSELF STEADILY AND REMINDS ME ALOT OF THOSE SPOOKY THINGS IN THE FILM GHOST THAT COMES FOR THE BAD GUYS. THIS BOOK CONSTANTLY NEVER LETS YOU FORGET THOSE SPOOKY THINGS HOVER IN THE SHADOWS OF THIS BOOK SERIES WAITING TO CREAT FOR THE LEAD GIRL DISMISE. GIVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE!show more

I was hoping that I would like this book but I unfortunately did not. We'll start with the positives, I liked that the setting of this story is not your typical high school. The atmosphere of Sword & Cross is secluded and dark. There is a sense of mystery that hangs over the dilapidated buildings and unkempt grounds of the school and it suits the mood of the story well. The students themselves are also not our typical cliques that we come across in YA books that are set in high school. Yes, Luce categorizes the students into stereotypes when she first sees them sitting outside but the minor characters she interacts with do not fall into these groups. Now the negatives, I felt Fallen could have been written about any magical creatures whether vampires, angels or elves. The protagonist, Luce was frustrating and certainly not someone I would want to deal with. She didn't feel like a worthy heroine to me, she wasn't worthy of her friend Penn who I found to be a strong, smart and witty, independent girl and she wasn't worthy of Daniel who places her above everyone else.show more

Very disappointing novel. Confusing plot, boring characters and nothing new or exciting here.show more

Luce was with Trevor the night he died. There was a fire, and only Luce came out alive. When everyone begins to question her - her parents, psychologist, the police - her answers don't satisfy them because she doesn't know. She can't remember what happened. That's how she finds herself at Sword & Cross, a reform school. Things get off to a rough start. Before her first class, she gets flipped off. By lunchtime, she runs into the bathroom crying, her hair and shirt covered in that day's meal. But soon she finds a few friends and begins to settle in. However, she is far from being able to rest easily. The "shadows" that have haunted her for the majority of her life seem to be making appearances more and more often, and she doesn't know why. They've gotten bolder, and now instead of simply skirting around and following her, they occasionally surround her, even touching her. One day, when the shadows come, Daniel, a fellow student, walks into the room, and they quickly move away. There is something hauntingly familiar about Daniel Grigori, but Luce can't figure out what it is. He appears in her dreams, dreams so vivid they feel real, as if they were something she had actually experienced. She wants to talk to him, figure out exactly why he can make the shadows go away, why it feels like she knows him, but he keeps her at a far distance. Things get progressively more dangerous as the days wear on. Luce feel an inexplicable draw to Daniel and won't stop trying to find out more about him and his past. If only she knew the truth about herself and him. The truth that she and Daniel can never, ever be together. FALLEN is an incredibly intriguing book, fraught with delicious suspense. The mystery seems to never abate, instead growing with each and every chapter. I felt like I might explode from the tension. I found myself rushing to get to the ending, while simultaneously enjoying the journey towards it. TORMENT, the next book in the FALLEN series, cannot get here soon enough.show more

Fallen, by Lauren Kate, is a story about how love never dies, no matter how much time passes. It's about many life times of struggle and restraint, and having to continuously repeat it after every certain amount of years, whether you want to or not. Even after centuries of searching and waiting, just for it all to end the same again. Wouldn't you have given up by now? Wouldn't you have rather fallen? A heart pounding, mind challenging, suspense inducing tale about Love, Hate, Friendship and the challenges that life throws at you.show more
