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

Fallen angels sure seem poised to become the new vampires, with a similarly ideal blend of brooding mystery and sexy rebellion. After a fiery accident kills a boy she is crushing on, Luce gets sent to a reform school populated, most notably, by two gorgeous fellas, Daniel and Cam. Cam is safe and charming and eager to win Luce’s affections, while Daniel operates somewhere between aloof and downright hostile toward her. Readers will figure out Luce and Daniel’s star-crossed-lovers angle early on, making the hints dropped throughout about past lives and dangerous fates more obvious than compelling. Although there’s not enough story to justify the length of this series opener, readers who stick with it get rewarded with a climactic payoff that far exceeds the buildup. The final pages’ flurry of delicious information about what’s really going on with the cadre of angels and demons will likely leave readers more intrigued by what’s next than invested in what just happened. Perhaps the sequel will contain an explanation of what these immortal types are doing at a reform school in the first place.

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 didn’t realize she possessed.
“I study these things. I’m an academic. I don’t 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.”
“I’m sort of in between gigs right now,”
Lauren Kate’s imagination artfully weaves together a world of fallen angels and the demons they fight. Though IMHO the characters weren’t all fully developed, but they still had their unforgettable moments and quirky charms. I’m 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.
The story was told in an easily-relatable format, albeit simple, as this is written for a young audience. The writing is QUITE descriptive, making it easy to get lost in the story.
I found the story unpredictable and surprising, edgy, although easy/fast to read.
Good characterization draws you into the story, and the plot is tied up well enough at the end, still leaving you cliff-hanging on some big questions + wondering what the author's going to come up with in the next book.
Not trying to give anything away but the amount of emotions that are in this book are so wonderful that they just invite you into the book and transport you into the world of young love, action, tragic accidents, and just a bit of deceit as well.
The book starts out with a look back into the past at Luce and Daniel’s relationship.
Luce finds herself at Swords and Cross where she comes across Daniel who she swears she has seen before but she can’t put her finger on where. Luce is befriended by another “student” who takes her under her wing and shows her the ropes of the school, she soon finds that there is just something about Daniel that she can’t stay away from no matter what. She soon becomes the potential love interest of another student Cam.
Daniel can’t believe that Luce is at the same school as he is, it seems to be fate is once again bringing the pair together even if it means that bad things will happen. When Daniel realizes that Cam is interested in Luce, as much as he wishes that he could stay away from her he can’t bring himself to let any harm come to her. The amount of chemistry between the pair will take your breath away.
