Torment by Lauren Kate - Review
Here's Pen's review of Torment, that pushed it absolutely to the top of my to be read pile.
It’s been days since the battle at Sword and Cross, and Lucinda must be taken into hiding by her boyfriend, Daniel, the fallen angel she is doomed to love and lose every sixteen years. Daniel takes Lucinda to Shoreline (a school for Nephilim – the offspring of fallen angels and humans), and assures her that she will be protected from harm, even though he must leave her to fight the murderous immortals who want to kill her.
While at Shoreline, Lucinda learns to cope with the Shadows that have hovered over her throughout her life. She manipulates them to see into her past lives with Daniel, but the more Lucinda learns about herself, the more she realizes that her past is the only key to unlocking the future and that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. I enjoyed Fallen, but I truly LOVE this second installment in the Fallen series.
