Following the success of Twilight, Fallen is one of many books that identify as a paranormal young adult romance, though it isn't the best example of the popular trend. The book in itself drags on for a large portion of the book, and has too many characters that make the events confusing to keep up with. While being a young adult romance, the Fallen love triangle between Daniel, Cam, and Luce was very forced. With Luce being the main character of the book, I felt she had a lot of potential but the books main focus was on her obsession/relationship with Daniel. I personally liked Daniel and Luce together, but I understand why others wouldn't. 3 Stars. @Ruby_Tuesday of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
Luce Price is sent to a new reform school after an accident left one of her classmates dead and people start questioning Luce's sanity. She is sent to Sword and Cross, a reform school in the middle of nowhere. She plans to start fresh, to focus on school, maybe make some friends and not get caught up in boys. But when she sees Daniel, everything changes. She feels as though they have this special connection and were made for one another. A great series if you're into reading about fallen angels. The concept of this book, how they fall in love with one another time after time through eternity was a really cool plot to me, the book is full of so many unique characters that each add something different to the story. Rating 5 out of 5 stars.
