New characters are introduced in just about every chapter in this enthralling tale, but they are by definition nothing but cameo appearances as their respective roles in the story can only be short lived.
One new character is called Bill the Gargoyle and he enters from stage left at around the thirty five percent mark of the book. His role is to provide life saving support for Lucinda as she traverses universe after universe seeking important clues to answer her ultimate riddle. But he does more than just support our heroine. He provides some much needed comic relief for book lovers everywhere and also balances and justifies the story as it goes along.
I found chapter eleven of the book a respective highlight. Some of the passages found in this section were bordering on the beautiful and really lifted the tone of the book from romantic stalkerism to mythical and classic but high quality fairy tale. I am now beginning to really anticipate the ending to this mad chase through these eternity of eternities and can see how much the book has improved from it’s relatively slow and repetitive beginning.
So I give this one four stars. If the ending is exceptional (in either a happy or sad way) I will let you know. But its still highly recommended. If you have got this far, I see no reason to stop now.
Book finshed October 17, 2015. In some respects the story is ended. We now know how the curse can be defeated but in stepped Bill the Gargoyle, and with one swift stroke he upset the plans of everyone concerned and the ultimate fight for survival is about to begin.
!!!!!BRING IT ON!!!!!
Fallen (Book #1), Torment (Book #2), Passion (Book #3), Fallen in Love (Book #3.5), Rapture (Book #4), and Unforgiven (Book #5) make up the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. They are Young Adult, paranormal stories- with fantasy, angels, good vs evil, drama, angst, fate, hidden agendas, danger, mystery, a love triangle, reincarnation, and more.
This is another book/series that has been sitting on my book has been on my TBR for far too long. Another series that had got lost amongst the thousands of books on/in my TBR. This year part of my reading challenge was to reduce my TBR- both in paperbacks and on my kindle, by reading some of the older backlog. So, here we are….
After reading the entire series now, I have to admit that although the premise and world building was quite good, there were parts that really frustrated me, and fell a little short. I was expecting to be blown away- but it just failed to deliver on my expectations. That’s not to say that I didn’t like the series, I didn’t mind it- but I fear my expectations were much higher than the books could deliver. I do recommend reading the books/series for yourself and making up your own mind though, as there are plenty of people who absolutely loved them.
The story/series follows Lucinda (Luce), Daniel, Cam, (and many other characters) as we discover a world of fallen Angels, Nephilim, curses, reincarnation, and even some time travel. There is much more to the characters and the situation than first appears, and there were a few twists thrown in that I didn’t see coming- but a lot of the story was a little predictable.
I would read more of Lauren Kate’s work just to get more of a fell of what she’s capable of.
Thank you, Lauren Kate!
