Fallen by Lauren Kate (Fallen #1)
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her. From Goodreads.
This series is pretty good; each book got better then the last one. But let me start from the beginning. Luce is pretty much a good kid but something unexplainable happened to her and she is kinda tortured by it. She thinks she just a harbinger of death basically. Her feelings kinda suck but it is the life of a teenager.
I loved how her parents sent her to a reform school that is like 20 minutes from them; which means that they could visit her when they were allowed to. Her parents seemed upset about everything that happened to her and only want her to get better. They seemed like good parents.
Now when she gets there she meets a bunch of new people. There is Daniel, Roland, Arriane, Gabe, Molly, and Cam. Also her best friend there happens to be Penny. She also gets close to Arriane, but not as close as Penny. The story was kinda slow at first but it picked up when she found out all the secrets about Daniel.
The love story was really great. Yea it kinda was the instant love that I dislike but at the same time it was different. When she finds out that they have been in love throughout time it made more sense. Of course, Daniel is so sad because he has had to watch her die over and over again. This would make anyone super sad or heartbroken and not want anything to do with that person like he did at first with Luce.
I really liked the story; it was sad and loving throughout it.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
