Note: Spoilers ahead!
The past three years have been filled with such vampire craze it seems everyone has forgotten there are other types of mythological creatures. As a reviewer, this has been as bad as having a tooth pulled out! Thankfully, there are authors with refreshing ideas and new stories to dive into. Author J. Bennett is such an author. She offers a unique take on what has now become the new trend of angel-character driven stories.
But that does not mean the book is not without its flaws. Let me begin with what worked for the book. Two of the main characters, Tarren and Gabe who are brothers, were a perfect balance for each other. Gabe is funny, hopeful and has a good heart despite the tragedy he has endured. Tarren is tougher than steel, mysterious and can seem rather cold but readers discover there's more to him. I like the dynamic between the brothers and how close the two are. The author did a good job of showing how truly alone Tarren and Gabe have been in their battle and how that has shaped the way they interact with the world--or well, lack of interaction with the world.
I also love the unique take on angels. Maya is not exactly an angel; she is a genetically enhanced human. Basically, she goes from being a shy down to earth normal girl, to a hybrid who can't help but want to suck out people's lives by touch-literally. Based on the title of the book, I had expected for Maya to in fact have wings or encounter someone with wings at some point. I had expected a big war of angels over some kind of forbidden love but I was surprised to read a book about a girl who developed special gifts (against her will) instead.Read more ›
There are both positives and negatives to Falling. On the positive side, the world building is creative and brings a unique twist to the paranormal world. Vampires that aren't really vampires and angels that aren't really angels give this story an intriguing paranormal element. The story itself was well developed and the plot was structured well. The three main characters, Maya, Tarren, and Gabe have a very interesting dynamic going on. They each have their own issues and beliefs and they are constantly clashing with each other. By the end of the story, I liked the characters more and I was curious about what would come next for Maya, Tarren, and Gabe.
I did have some issues with Fallen. The angel terminology is a bit misleading, the paranormal beings are more vampire-esque than angelic. Also, the language was a bit off-putting at times throughout the book. There were times when I felt the author was trying too hard for the language to be beautiful and creative.Read more ›
This book was not at all what I was expecting. I thought a little bit of supernatural mixed in with the typical teenish angst. But really this was an intense life changing horror story. I really liked the back story of the "angels", as an experiment gone wrong who can absorb the energy from the sun or you know, whatever. The basic plot of the story I found to be compelling, but at times it seemed like the story line took some random tangents, especially when we were lost in Maya's head. I also found myself horrified at certain things in the book as well, like the bulbs coming out of her hands and the death of the puppy as well as others. I guess the fact I was freaked out/disgusted means that the author did a great job in her descriptions and world building, but it also means at times I was turned off by the book.
The characters were really well fleshed out, I understood them completely. I also felt the author did a great job of describing the change with Maya and the pain and wants that she had from it. I absolutely loved Gabe, and even kinda liked Tarren and his bad attitude. I became invested in the people in the books, even though I am not positive I will continue on in the series. I can see that many people will like this, it just was not for me.

Very well written. I was pleasantly surprised. I am now very interested in reading the rest of the series. The only thing this story is missing is a love interest.Published 8 days ago by JessMess12
