Publisher's Summary

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.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

This again?

I guess this is my own fault, because I should know better than to go searching for something in the YA category of substantial depth with decent writing. This was a quickie impulse and I cant bring myself to finish it. The writing is mediocre, the plot is maddeningly predictable, and the angst isn't very convincing. What angers me the most is how flimsy the characters are. The heroine is practically non-existent aside from her run-of-the-mill tortured past, and the main love interest is simply attractive and mysterious. They're paper thin characters that never made it off the page to become more than just words, and the "He's so mysterious, I wonder what he's hiding behind that cloak of mystery" thing is getting old. It doesnt help that everytime Daniel gets around Luce he's absolutley torn between loving her (because she has such a personality!) and doing the right thing (which causes the paper thin angst). The "I cant tell you anything, but look at the sadness in my eyes" bit is played out!! And where do I start with the reform school they are attending? Oh the treacherous reform school with cameras and barbed wire and students who carry pocket knives and permanent markers! Cliche much? I rolled my eyes at the fact that the students rarely go to class, but when Luce slept through an entire morning of her classes I realized I couldnt go on very much further. But I did, and when another student has a car and driver pick Luce up to bring her to a bar, where he hangs out most days, cause, you know, reform schools are cool with that, I put the brakes on this book. I was down with Twilight and knew to take it for what it was, but this is just a sad attempt to cash in on the teen saga mania of today. I actually want my credit back.

Very Romantic

Wow! This was one of the best romances I have read this year. The mystery of what was really happening to Luce and Daniel made this book so, so difficult to put down. The author's writing style and the narrator's reading of this audiobook, almost lyrical at times, kept me so engrossed. Luce, clueless at times, did make me want to shake her. But that is only because I became so invested in her story. And Daniel, hot and cold by turns, at first baffled me. But by the end of the book, I definitely understood why he behaved this way. This is a very romantic story about star crossed lovers and the battle between good and evil. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
