Rapture by Lauren Kate (Fallen #4)

The sky is dark with wings . . . .

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer. From Goodreads.

What an ending to such a great story! I totally didn’t see it coming at all. I am glad that Luce figured things out and realized that she really does love Daniel and is willing to always choose him over anyone else. Honestly it was quite nice to hear, I was a little worried that she wouldn’t choose him especially since her and Miles kissed in Passion.

This time they all are on the hunt for 3 things that have kinda fell off the face of the planet that will help them find the site where they all fell to Earth. They are all trying to stop Lucifer, even the demons (Cam, Roland and Molly). Mainly because if Lucifer does what he says he will do then they all will disappear.

Luce finds out everything about her past, even from where she came from. She also finds out who she fell in love with first, which was a HUGE shocker to me. I thought she was purely human but I found it weird that Lucifer took such a personal hatred toward her and Daniel.

I definitely recommend this book because it was well worth it, even when the story got a little slow in the other books, Rapture definitely makes up for it. When the end came I was almost sad that the story was over, I would like to see Daniel and Luce after everything. Like a few years into the future. I don’t think it will happen but it would be nice.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Passion by Lauren Kate (Fallen #3)

Passion by Lauren Kate (Fallen #3)

Luce would die for Daniel.

And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series. From Goodreads.

This is the third in the series, and I loved this one. I loved that Luce went back in time to find out why she loves Daniel. I loved each and every past life that she went through. Meanwhile she was looking for reasoning in her past life, Daniel and everyone else went in search of her.

Daniel just barely misses her in each past life until the very first life that she had. That is where he catches her and everything is okay. Well as okay as it can be, seeing as Luce finds out that her travel partner has been lying to her the whole time and plans on getting revenge for something that she still at that time doesn’t understand.

I don’t want to give too much away about the books because they were really good and definitely worth reading. I loved the angel and demon relationships, even the instant love were better than most other author’s. With each past life Luce learned more about herself and more about what she can do possibly in the future. I liked watching her grow as a character in the book.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Awry by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #2)

Awry by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #2)

Sometimes love is meant to be. But sometimes love…is the death of you….

Seventeen-year-old Scarlet has just died. Only, dying isn’t unusual for a girl under a centuries old curse that left her semi-immortal.

This time, though, she comes back to her current life instead of awaking in a new one, and she realizes the curse is changing. Together with the immortal Archer brothers, Scarlet must piece together her life and try to break the curse before her impending death comes again. From Goodreads.

Just when I didn’t think the story could get any better, it did. Chelsea Fine managed to make something unbelievable to completely believable. I loved how in between chapters, the older original story was told. How Scarlet, Tristan, and Gabriel all met, how Gabriel and Scarlet became engaged and most importantly how they all got cursed.

The ending to Anew had me so upset so when Awry started I was prepared to be upset again, of course when the beginning was completely different then I thought it was going to be, I was ecstatic. I still can’t get enough of the love triangle but it just keeps getting more and more tangled now. I loved how Heather and Scarlet’s friendship grew more because she finally tells her everything. Most people would think she is crazy but not Heather, she supports her completely. In every decision that she made.

There were so many secrets that came out in the book, especially about Raven and Laura, Scarlet’s guardian. I loved every page in this book, not a single one was I even slightly bored in. I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Anew by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #1)

Anew by Chelsea Fine (The Archers of Avalon #1)

Two years ago, Scarlet awoke in the forest alone, afraid, and unable to remember anything. Lost and confused, her life was a mystery…until she met a boy with a familiar voice.

Gabriel Archer has a voice from her past, and Scarlet’s determined to remember why. She immerses herself in his life only to discover he has a brother he’s kept hidden from her: Tristan Archer.

Upon meeting Tristan, Scarlet’s world becomes even more muddled. While she’s instinctively drawn to Gabriel, she’s impossibly drawn to Tristan–and confused out of her mind. As she tries to piece together her history Scarlet realizes her past…might just be the death of her. From Goodreads.

Amnesia, love, curses and immortality all wrapped into one book? Awesome. I loved how feisty Scarlet was and how even though she couldn’t remember her past at all; she gets a best friend in Avalon that is amazing. She makes sure that Scarlet is never a total fashion disaster and she is willing to stick by her when her boyfriend Gabriel is thought to be doing something shady.

Of course it was not Gabriel but it was Tristan, his twin. I don’t want to give away too much but this book was the first in the trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint. I loved how Scarlet wasn’t willing to just sit around and do nothing when she knew that she could find a way out of the curse. I like how Gabriel tries so hard to be what Scarlet wants and needs but with Tristan in the background it is hard for him.

I can’t possibly see how this love triangle will work out but you never know Chelsea is an amazing writer so I am sure there will be some twists and turns in the last book of the series that will make (hopefully) everything work out. I am sure not everyone will get a happy ending but you never know. Maybe they will. I hope they all do at least.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
