Publisher's Summary

Hell on earth.
That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous. What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?
The second novel in the addictive Fallen series... where love never dies.

Great plot, but a lot of filler.

I love the idea behind this story, but just like with Fallen i find myself wondering, "Um, can we just get to the point already?" The story is full of fluffy little moments which are cool for first books, but kinda tedious when you have been waiting a year for the next installment. Great plot, love the new characters and the explanations behind last book's villains. It gets exciting towards the last couple chapters and sets it up nicely for the next book in the series.

I am a sucker for a good love triangle and this story has it again. I recommend picking it up if you liked fallen, but if you are impatient you might want to preview it.

Wait until the author completes the series...

Unfortunately, Kate decided that making money on a book series was more important than writing a comprehensive book. Despite more than 7 hours of no action or plot development, I thought the ending of Fallen was truly enjoyable, enough so that I purchased Torment. Granted, Torment had more action and plot development, but there was no ending to the book – the alleged heroine simply runs away. Readers are pretty much left on tethered hooks until the next book comes out in a year. I get that Kate planned on making a series of Fallen, but each book should have the capacity to stand on its own as a good piece of fiction. At this point, I will not buy another book in the series until they are all written, but chances are by then I will have likely lost interest.
