Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen by Lauren Kate is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
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.
"Sexy and fascinating and scary . . . I loved loved loved it!"--New York Times bestselling author P.C. Cast
Beautiful Lucinda (Luce) Price is banished from everything she knows after a mysterious fire leaves her friend Trevor dead and Luce shouldering the blame. She is forced to board at a decrepit reform school where students are under the constant watch of cameras and must go without cellphones or Internet access. Grief-stricken by Trevor's death and horrified by her new surroundings, Luce is also plagued by sinister, terrifying shadows that appear wherever she goes. The remote gothic setting provides the standard backdrop for the crux of the story, first in a planned series the romantic feelings Luce develops for the elusive, unpredictable, and rather unlikable Daniel. Aside from the evil shadows, the plot can be summed up with a single word: pining. Luce longs for Daniel in various ways dreaming of him, digging up information, trying to talk to him, experiencing rejection, then trying again. Some readers will pine right alongside Luce, but others may feel that Kate spends too much time on unrequited love and too little on forward movement in Luce's relationship with Daniel and the mystery of what, exactly, Daniel is. Ages 12 up.

This book was completely outstanding! No lie this book is one of my most favorites. It was randomly bought for me and I was like ugh a book, but oh god am I happy I read it. Starts out pretty interesting and just keeps getting better and better! Then next thing you know, you don't want to put the book down. I loved it so much I'm never giving it away and I've already bought the second one. So far amazing! I completely recommend anyone read this book. Well if of appropriate age lol
I read this book in like two days.. I couldn't put it down! This was an awesome and addicting book! Luce and Daniel are pretty much perfect for each other! I can't wait to see what happens in book two!!!
From the moment I started reading I couldn't stop. I have never read a book so fast in my life. You become part of the book wanting for Luce to react in a certain saying that is how you would do it. This book was amazing and I am already downloading the next book in the collection Torment. I will let you know how this one is. P.S. I thought the book was much better than Twilight.
