Fallen by Lauren Kate - Review

Luce Price is haunted by shadows. She can’t remember anything about the accident in which her boyfriend died, but nonetheless she’s sent to a reform school, Sword and Cross. Strangers surround her - all seem messed up to her – her cell phone is taken away, and there are security cameras everywhere. No wonder she’s unhappy. Then she catches a glimpse of Daniel Grigori and wonders why he seems so familiar. She’s sure she’s met him somewhere before but he is simply not interested, won’t have anything to do with her. And yet she can’t keep away. She needs to find out more about him (of course she does!) but he makes no sense to her at all.

This is very much an introductory novel to a new series that is full of unusual characters (my favorite is Penn), star-crossed lovers, and a fight between good and evil. There will be many, many things said about this ending but I loved it, made me change the way I thought about the book. Try it for yourself. Let me know.

Oh, and the cover is beautiful don't you think?
