Publisher Comments:

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 the Sword and Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce — and goes out of his way to make that very clear — she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she 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:

“Sexy and fascinating and scary…I loved love loved it!” P.C. Cast, New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night Series

Synopsis:

Luce is a new student at Sword and Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce's boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword and Cross.

Synopsis:

An ancient myth + a mean girl + a reluctant warrior = a lively take on good vs. evil

The Black Rose--a powerful ancient force--has been let loose and has taken up residence in Celeste Gibson, popular girl at Cassidy Carter-Lewis' high school. Thomas Delacroix is the spirit of a fourteenth-century knight who is devoted to protecting the Black Rose, but he needs a contemporary living being to take on the challenge. That's where Cassidy comes in. She's a quirky high school junior who just wants to dress in her vintage clothes, hang out with her best friend, and take care of her father, who is recovering from surgery. She's the last person who would ever volunteer for such a task, but no one actually asked her.  Now, like it or not, she finds herself training before dawn and battling demons at parties, the mall, and even at school. But hey, no one ever said high school was going to be easy. . .

“Fallen” written by Lauren Kate is about a young girl named Luce, who has bigger problems then deciding on what to wear on her first day of school. Unfortunately, her first day of school happens to be at the Sword & Cross, a reform school, where everything is bleak and depressing. That is, everything except Daniel, who Luce is immediately drawn to by some force bigger then attraction. Daniel…who makes it painfully obvious that he has no interest in Luce whatsoever. Unable to accept Daniel’s disinterest, Luce becomes emerged in her desire to find out more about this mysterious boy and awakens more details then she ever bargained for.

Lauren Kate brings something new and dangerously exciting to the table. “Fallen” is a gripping page turner that will engulf you before you can finish the first chapter. Lauren Kate has opened up a unique world that will quickly enrapture readers.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA fiction, especially so if you enjoy paranormal reads. “Fallen” is a thriller with a forbidden romance. It’s dangerous, dark and gothic.

Laruen Kate has introduced something just as interesting as Vampires and Werewolves, something that quite possibly will rival their popularity. “Fallen” is a tantalizing, addictive book that you will want to pick up. I was so caught up in the storyline that I read this one in a day. Lauren Kate’s writing is solid and I venture a guess that this is only the beginning of a very long and successful writing career. I’m looking forward to following along and delving into each work that she presents. Next up, “Torment”. I’m anxious to crack this open and let it captivate me completely.
