Fallen by Lauren Kate

Fallen by Lauren Kate

Fallen review by Moirae (the fates) book reviews. In Fallen by Lauren Kate we meet Luce Price and Daniel Grigori a pair of star-cross lovers…with a twist. Daniel is a fallen angel. Luce meets him when she is sent to a reform school for “problem” teens. She was sent there due to a fire at her old school, when Luce was in the room and the other student that was with her didn’t make it out of the fire.
When she sees him, she feels an immediate pull to him; however, she can’t understand why he is so rude to her.
Luce makes fast friends with Penn, her and Penn talk about Daniel like all girls do with their friends. Luce and Daniel are first able to interact a bit more when both of them have to do detention in the school cemetery.
The relationship that blooms between Luce and Daniel felt very organic and true. Kate never made it feel forced or like it was fake. The character development was amazing in this story.
I did see the book marketed as another Twilight, calling this book Twilight is an insult to Fallen. It was nothing like anything I have ever read before and saying it is like any other book, is calling it unoriginal. It is a very original book.
Daniel truly loves Luce and Luce truly loves Daniel. The pair make a wonderful couple.
The whole book is action-packed and Kate gives the reader a little snippet of information throughout the book and the reader can put it together like a jigsaw puzzle. The ending and the chapters just before the ending where jam packed with information and action. The twists and turns that Kate gives to the story is amazing and I never saw a few of them coming. This is going to be a four book series, the second of which Torment will be available on 28- September-2010 I would recommend this book to readers of all types.
Kate is an author to watch!

What parents need to know:
The book has some language, but not much, there is no sexual content so to speak in the book besides kissing, if one can call that sexual content.

Cover art:
The cover art is beautiful and the reason I first picked up the book, it reminded me of Amy Lee.

Over all rating:
My overall rating for Fallen is a ***** 5 out of 5 stars

My personal book shelf.
