Review

"spanning 5,000 years, this endeavours to explain every important moment of Luce and Daniel's relationship" -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller 20110128 "Twilight-style success could be on the cards for the fallen angel saga amid Disney film romours." -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller 20110325 "I enjoyed reading Passion as much as I enjoyed reading Fallen and Torment. I read it in 3 or 4 sittings and I already can't wait for Rapture," Notes of Life 20110601 "The descriptive writing style managed to bring all of the different time periods to glorious life within my imagination...The romance between Luce and Daniel was enchanting to behold although at times felt voyeuristic with the intensity of the emotion portrayed...What can I say about the ending but OMGosh Lauren Kate has done it again, the cliff hanger to top that at the end of Torment. I have no idea how she sustains it. I cannot believe that I have to wait until Spring 2012 in order to find out what happens next." As A Mum 20110601 "Rating: A+ Lauren Kate is one fantastic author ...her books just get better and better... I remember reading the first page and thinking WOW! ...pure action in every single chapter...kept me thrilled and engaged the whole time. ...emotion filled... awesome joyride... very balanced with dialogue and description... The writing was beautiful. This book was sent from the heavens above. ...beautiful story burning with Passion. With love found from heaven and a curse sent from hell this will be the most magical book of the year." -- Arjun Thakrar Excellent Reads 20110603 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have read all 4 books in this series and I just could not put the book down.
Cindi
This book felt like an unnecessary detour through time just so the author could try writing about time travel.

I loved Fallen. I mean really thought it was great. I wanted more info so I didn't feel so very lost about certain things, but I still really thought it was a great book. It pained me to read the second (Torment). It was not a great follow-up. Despite the epic failure that I thought Torment was, I still had high hopes for Passion. Shame on me. Don't get me wrong, I will read Rapture - if for no other reason than the text on the page facing the last page states: "Rapture - The Final Book int he Fallen Series - Spring 2012" and I can close the book on a series that had so much potential but fell flat fast.

Here, virtually all the characters we got to know in the first two books were non-existant. The promise of a "team Cam vs team Daniel" - shattered. Primarily by the fact that Cam was in all of like 3 chapters and he was peripheral. And expendable. And he didn't really influence the plot or the characters in any way. The only characters that really mattered in this installment were Daniel, Luce (both, in all their incarnations) and the new Bill character. And while this is a petty, nit-pickey, tiny little annoyance - was it really necessary for ever version of Luce to be named some version of Luce? Really? Before we get to the Mayan civilization or Chinese one, we couldn't get a different name? With Bill as the guide, it wasn't really necessary for that to happen. But anyway... onto bigger complaints.

First, the entire plot annoyed me. Luce needed proof that their love was real? This book felt like an unnecessary detour through time just so the author could try writing about time travel. Bill could have gone all "3D" Luce with the first step back and Luce would have felt it right away. But that would have cut out at least half the book.

After the last book, Torment, I was pretty excited to see more of Luce and Daniel's story and how her past lives played into their current love. Passion does not disappoint. The reader is taken through many of their different romances and you learn along with Luce how much they really do love each other.

It was a nice change of pace to have the chapters alternate between Luce and Daniel and get his perspective on different situations, considering we didn't know very much about him for the first two books. We finally get more of his personality and his feelings for Luce.

One of the things I was a bit disappointed about is that there wasn't much room for any of the supporting characters that I know many of us have come to love: Arianne, Shelby, Steven/Francesca, etc. However, considering that this is Luce's journey through her past lives, there isn't really much room for others beyond her and Daniel and some cameos from the others.

The ending perfectly sets up the final installment, Rapture, and leaves you rather frustrated that we have to wait until NEXT YEAR to get the last book. Passion is definitely a great read and a natural progression of Luce's story and never feels forced or as if the author was just looking to stretch out the series. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the first two books!

Passion is the third book in the series (behind Fallen and Torment) that will be four books in all. This book tells the story of Luce going back through her past lives to try to prove if Daniel really loves her (or is just a pawn of the curse) and if there is a way to break the curse altogether.

The problem I think, for me anyway, was that for most of the book Luce is an observer of her past incarnations falling in love with Daniel over and over again. So essentially the reader is an observer watching another observer of a story, and so almost all of the emotion is taken out of it. There is some emotion given off by "our" Luce (usually jealousy or envy) but all of the so-called passion is twice removed from the reader. Some of the settings are interesting, as well as the historical significance of a few of the encounters, but for the most part this book loses all of the great chemistry and romance that is found in the first two books of the series. Others have mentioned that this is a typical filler book in the series, and I unfortunately agree.

***SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT***

Perhaps one of the greater injustices of the book is the scene at the race track that pretty much gives away "Bill's" true identity. I think this scene was completely unnecessary and it would have been better if the identity of Bill was discovered at the end instead of with this silly "smoking hoof prints" on the bleacher's give away. As almost all of the interaction in this book is between Luce and Bill, I would have enjoyed it more had I not really known that he was going to come out of the closet (so to speak) as the villain in the end.

The climax of the novel between Luce and Daniel (ie.

The first thing that drew me like a moth to the flame to the Fallen series were the covers. The first two are frame worthy and beautiful, even to the touch. The third one with a rose....not my favorite. It doesn't really match the first two in the series. However, I will say that I enjoyed Fallen and Torment enough to get me out of bed early one morning at BEA to make the mad dash to the Lauren Kate signing table. And I was impressed that Delacorte Press was kind enough to give us all a hardback copy. That was above and beyond. Now, on to the story itself.

The pace of Passion is very slow with little action or tension which posed a problem for me since it's hard to maintain my attention. This installment was snapshots in a travel log of the many different settings where Luce and Daniel have fallen in love across the ages. It is their story over and over exactly as it states in the book summary. You'll get a short snippet of each new world and person involved. The interesting part for me was the actual setting and history behind each city where the announcers take Luce. Readers get a taste of Moscow, Milan, England, Prussia, Tibet, China, Egypt, South America and life in the prehistoric pre-civilized world. Lauren Kate takes you through the tunnels of time according to Luce's heart's desire and eventually, bent by the powers of her travel companion Bill.

Bill's a newly introduced secondary character that I also struggled with. In my heart of hearts I missed all of the other characters from the first two books that I had grown to love. They are constantly lost in Passion, trying to catch up to Luce but never interacting in the storyline or given much face time. To me it seemed there was a lack of development of secondary characters.
