Book Summary:

WHAT IF THE PERSON YOU WERE MEANT TO BE WITH COULD NEVER BE YOURS?


There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.


Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at Sword & Cross bording school in Savannah. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are screwups, and security cameras watch every move.

Except Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret. . .even if it kills her.


Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic FALLEN is a page-turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

Review:

This book was just as P.C. Cast described on the cover! "Sexy and fascinating and scary. . ."

Holy crap this book was good. It had a great plot, which I absolutely loved. It was goth. . . well not really. The school uniform, all black, church, Gothic style. That gave it a plus. I would have like gone to that school if it wasn't a boarding school for screwups. Really I would.

I loved the idea of her being attracted and having that vague feeling of familiarity to someone that she could swear she's only seen at this school. It made the story more alluring, more suspenseful, more thought provoking--I think. I could not stop reading! I would be in the middle of my Mathematics class rushing through the work--without making a mistake-- just so I could get back to reading about Luce and Daniel.

Which comes to my next thought, Daniel. Daniel, Daniel, Daniel. His personality I would give him like an A+ I love it. And his looks the way I thought them up? Oh. My. Gosh. I've tried to creat characters like this and I've never even come close to making it like that. I don't know I just fell in love with Daniel the minute he was introduced. If anyone, ANYONE would come up to me  and was like that I would be IN LOVE.

Luce. She's strong. Dedicated. Not a damsel in distress. And just like me. I love her. I was able to really relate and connect with this character. Even though the story was in third person I could really insert myself in the actions, in what was going on. I felt everything she felt and I could imagine Arianne and Gabbe.

This is DEFINITELY going to be recommended to my English class the next time we do book things.

Now. The cover.

I usually don't rate the cover of a book, I don't know, just never really thought about doing that. This cover gets a ten out of five. It is so beautiful. The girl, the dress, the way it is, is just so pretty. I absolutely loved it. This is one of those books that I judged the book by it's cover.  One of my friends too a look at the book and was instantly hooked.

Just everything about this book was awesome. If you haven't read this PICK IT UP!
