Hell on earth.

That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.

It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous.

What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

 

The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series . . . where love never dies.

Review:

"In Kate's sequel to Fallen, fallen angel Daniel has negotiated an 18-day truce with demonic Cam, during which time they will keep his one true love, 17-year-old Luce, safe from the Outcasts, 'spineless, waffling angels, shunned by both Heaven and Hell,' who are after her. Daniel sends Luce to Shoreline, a Northern California prep school for angel-descended Nephilim. The change is stressful for her because she is there alone and because she is seen as a 'legendary freak' by some students for her famous doomed relationship with Daniel, which has unfolded tragically over several lifetimes. Uncovering details from her past lives and meeting charmingly normal Miles, Luce begins to have doubts about Daniel. Equal parts romance and thriller, this sequel can be both schmaltzy ('There was no darkness, no more cold, just the lovely sensation of being bathed in his violet glow. Even the rush of the ocean was canceled out by a soft hum, the energy Daniel carried in his body') and frequently suspenseful. The open-ended finale paves the way for a third book. Ages 12 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Luce feels like she is living in hell on earth since she has to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel. Daniel decides to hide Luce at Shoreline, a school in California that is for unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

Daniel is determined to protect Luce but to do that he must hide her from the Outcasts that are hunting her and intent on killing her. Daniel wants Luce hidden just long enough so that he can hunt the Outcasts that are after her.

While at Shoreline Luce learns more about the shadows she has seen her whole life and how to use them as windows into her previous lives. As Luce learns more and more she starts getting the feeling that Daniel hasn’t told her everything that has happened in the past. He is hiding something, something that could be very dangerous.




This is the second book in this series and it picks up shortly after the first left off. The story is wonderfully written and readers will be looking at fallen angels in a completely different light than they have in the past. The twist and turns that are in this series are sure to have readers wanting to read all the books just to see what ultimately happens to Luce and Daniel and how this life will end for them. It will also have readers thinking about the possibility of previous lives and what ifs. This is one that readers won’t want to miss.

In “Torment” by Lauren Kate, Luce is sent to the prestigious California school Shoreline by Daniel in order to keep her safe from the Outcasts ��" immortals who are not a part of Heaven or Hell and who are hunting Luce down to kill her. At Shoreline, Luce joins the unique Nephilim students who are the children of fallen angels and humans. There she makes friends with others who posses unusual talents. It is there that Luce meets Miles, the normal, friendly, gorgeous, down to earth boy who makes Luce second guess everything. It is here where Luce learns more about the shadows that have always haunted her and how they can help her glimpse her past lives. It is also here where Luce questions her relationship with Daniel and his honesty to her, or the lack thereof. Everything that Luce believed in is being challenged and her world is changing rapidly.

I think that Lauren Kate writes with intensity that draws the readers into the story so deeply that they become part of the story themselves. “Torment” is another well written, entrancing continuation to the Fallen novels. Lauren Kate has ventured into territory unlike no other and has thus captivated her audience.

This book is recommended for YA followers. However, you’ll also find romance entwined with jealousy and paranormal fiction.

Personally, I didn’t think I was interested in this series after reading the synopsis, but my cousin raved about them so much, that I took a chance. I’m glad that I did, because these have climbed their way to the top of my favorites list.

As I mentioned in my earlier review of “Fallen”, I feel that Lauren Kate is a force to be reckoned with. I think that she found a niche that yearned to be discovered and she did it well. It is clear that her career as a promising writer is only in the beginning stages and that we will be hearing much, much more from her in the future. I’m looking forward to reading “Passion” and seeing what will become of Luce and Daniel and their star crossed love for one another. Fallen angels are the new objects of affection!
