Slow at the start.

'The Shadows. She sensed them before she saw them, bubbling up like tar from the ground. A tentacle of darkness curled around her wrist, and Luce looked down in terror.' Plot Seventeen-year-old Lucinda Price is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming reform school in Georgia. Ever since...

While walking around my local Tesco and having a nose down the book aisle as I usually do, I was struck by this book due to its very nice cover. I always like buying random books and this was in a buy 2 get one 1 deal. I already had another book I intended to buy and my other half brought one...

I have to say, the book that I will now review was bought as it was thought to be a vampire book…….by my husband, so him being the sweetheart he is he got it for me immediately. After the first few pages though, it became more than apparent that this was going to be completely different to what...

I picked up this book from the library as I was intrigued by the cover. The story starts with a prologue of a man who was about to leave the woman he loved. Then we are transferred back to the modern day with Luce/Lucinda who is having her first day at the reform school. This is her court...

Not for me

Nice front cover illustration

Poor plot, poor characters - unimaginative

Fallen I felt like I really ‘fell’ for this one and should have known better. I was suffering from Twilight withdrawal and saw this recommended on Amazon. It has a mixture of reviews, including quite a few 5 star reviews, so I thought it would be worth giving a go. Plot The story is about 17 year...

I’ve put Fallen off for many many months, I won a giveaway for both Fallen and Torment last year and they have both sat there looking at me longingly ever since. I don’t know why but I was scared that what I would find between the pages would be too cheesy, to insta-love and too, well not me. I...

Some inconsistancies

Fallen by Lauren Kate is the first in a series of Young Adult Fiction: Brief Description: From the blurb: "Some angels are destined to fall. Instant. Intense. Weirdly familiar...

“Fall in love with this...”

published 17/04/2011

Beautiful cover, fascinating storyline

A lot of unanswered questions

I fell in love with the cover on Fallen, and I won't rant about that because I know that it's already been ranted about, like, a million times so I won't bore you because I am nice like that. One minor flaw Fallen had was that it started quite slow. I tried not to let it put me off because as I...

“one of my top five series”

published 14/06/2013

everything is amazing

none

Reading about Angels was never my type of thing especially that I had never read about them. But reading Fallen has cast a whole new light on the world of Angels and I am definitely in to them now. This is another book where the plot doesn't really come until the end of the book but I still...

“I Have Fallen for this Book”

published 17/06/2013

Great ending, pulls you into the story

Very long and slow start

Fallen – Lauren Kate As many of you might have already gathered from my previous reviews, and the fact that I have a blog which focuses upon books alone; I absolutely adore reading. I love stand-alone books, though I am always looking out for a series of books in the hope that I will fall in love...

Easy to read

You can't put the book down

If you love all the paranormal stories or trying to fill a big Twilight hole then this book is definately a must. Fallen is the first book of a quadrilogy about a girl who falls in love with an angel, only to realise this has happened more than once but has met a fiery ending each time. However...

Romantic & Dark, Unique

This Book is absolutely fantastic, if you love paranormal romance but are bored of Vampires and werewolves try Fallen out for size. The concept of this book is like nothing I have ever read before and I read a lot of books, it is a totally different twist on paranormal romance as well as on the...
