Fallen has so much potential and I have great hopes for the rest of the series. Lucinda Price is a well educated and privileged young lady and then something goes amiss to shatter her perfect world. She ends up at the Sword & Cross boarding school (for delinquents) and is immediately mesmerized and infatuated with a boy named Daniel Grigori. Finding her place in this school, among these absurd people, she begins to unravel the mystery of her life and piece together memories she didnt realize she possessed. I study these things. Im an academic. I dont get tangled up in tribal matters of the heart. I should like to have a word with whoever thought putting the fate of all our eternal souls in the hands of one lovesick pair of infants was so brilliant an idea. Im sort of in between gigs right now,Lauren Kates imagination artfully weaves together a world of fallen angels and the demons they fight. Though IMHO the characters werent all fully developed, but they still had their unforgettable moments and quirky charms. Im torn between liking and loving this book. I rounded up to 4-stars to give it the benefit of the doubt. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline; though at some points it dragged on a bit too much. (I found myself put it down for bed and actually waited a couple days before picking it up again. ) But overall, Fallen is an intriguing world with a fascinating concept. Check it out!
From School Library Journal Grade 8 Up—Luce must spend her senior year at reform school after her boyfriend dies in a mysterious fire. She suspects that the dark shadows that have tormented her all her life had something to do with it. When she meets supernaturally gorgeous Daniel, she feels a familiar longing, making her believe they have met before. Although Cam is clearly interested in her, Luce only wants Daniel, who runs both hot and cold. He tries to keep Luce at a distance, telling her that the truth would kill her as it has many times before. The first chapter is gripping and foreshadows the supernatural elements to come. The plot revolves around lovers who find one another, only to lose one another over and over again in a story that spans centuries. Instead of vampires, though, these are fallen angels. Many elements are not resolved, such as the cause of the fire and why angels are at this school. Still, fans of supernatural romance will be lining up for this book despite its flaws, and begging for a sequel.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Fallen Paperback – September 28, 2010 by Lauren Kate (Author) Review
I recently watched "Fallen" the movie as I had been eagerly anticipating it’s release and found it to be too brief although I did think some of the story could have been better fleshed out in places. It sparked an interest to re-read this book that I picked up so long ago before I became a Kindle fan. The concept of the story was interesting and yet I felt that her relationship with Cam seemed to be the most logical given that he seemed to genuinely care about her and was there for her when she needed a friend. The expectation of the epic love story around Daniel and Luce did feel stilted at times and too forced. The instant attraction I understand but his treatment of her did not endear him to me although I did understand his reasons. I felt that Luce would have been better equipped to face her life and the shadows had he explained them to her rather than say nothing when she confided in him. Being deprived of her memories would be frustrating but the lack of chemistry between them did not make me believe in their love story and Cam stole my heart early on, why do bad boys never get the girl? -Read Reviews-
After reading some of the reviews, I have a different take. First of all, I saw the movie before I read the book. The movie is horrible, so naturally, I thought, "I need to read this book. It can’t be as bad as this movie. "Actually, the book is a very different story and in comparison, much better. Luce is still annoying, Daniel is annoying, and Cam is not evil enough (I can’t even deal with Penn and what happens to her), but the story is better and makes a little more sense. I’m going to read the series as I got it in a bundle and I’m hoping it gets better.
