Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I opted to check Fallen out, I did so believing it was going to be a straightforward dark fantasy adventure. Then I started reading it and began to cringe. I'd picked up a teenage romance novel (admittedly not my first choice of genre) or so I thought.

The one thing reading Fallen has taught me (and this should apply to all readers), it's that one should never underestimate a book. Because it's greatest power is always that it can surprise you. And that's what Lauren Kate has done with her (quite frankly) enthralling read.

Fallen focuses on one Lucinda Price, a narcissist teenager with a horrific past. Lucinda has been sent off by her parents to Sword & Cross reform school. Immediately, Luce finds herself struggling to fit in with the strict regime of the school, as well as trying to find her place among all the other misfits she's landed up with. And to cap it all off, Luce is head-over-heels in love with Daniel Grigori, a distant, cold teenager who couldn't care less about her.

It may sound so simple, but like epics such as The Gargoyle (Andrew Davidson), The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins) and The Kin (Gillian Wallace), Fallen becomes so much than its premise implies. And that's because of how Lauren guides her story.

There is a plot to Fallen, but it doesn't come into play until the last few chapters. The majority of the book is purely character-driven, with Kate keeping the primary focus on Luce and chronicling her struggles to adapt and survive in the harsh environment of Sword & Cross. Then the author throws the characters (one-by-one) into the mix, and before long, you witness a colourful cast germinate and interact before you.

It's certainly a creative way of establishing all the characters before getting into the thick of things.

I only picked up this book for a quick read, as I didn't realise there are two more in the series. After reading a few of the early chapters, I decided to look at the reviews to see what others thought of the story and from the 3 and a half star average rating, I was a little worried I wouldn't like this book. But surprisingly enough, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's a bit typical and similar to the other fantasy romances there are at the moment, but I think that Fallen is still unique in it's own way, and is a book with a treasure inside. I felt a rollercoaster of emotions as I read, and I got the shivers everytime there was a romantic part :)

For me, Fallen was everything it claimed to be. It was thrilling, and the forbidden love is heart-breaking and the characters were all so alive. I found myself thinking of the story wherever I went; being in town in shops and suddenly remembering Cam's sweetness and Daniel's rejection. If a story can do so much as to fill up your conscious mind, then I'm sure it's a powerful one.

I am definitely not disappointed in reading this, and I'm looking forward to Torment. To those of you who are unsure of reading this book, try it out 'cause there's always the chance you'll love it as much as I did.

Format: Hardcover
Luce Price is 'shipped' off to Sword and Cross after a fire incident. At Sword and Cross she meets some very unusual people... Cam - attractive, upfront, and bluntly into Luce, but he has a 'bad' side too. Arriana- all over the place, causing Luce to be confused about her motives towards her. Penn - probably the most "normal" girl at Sword and Cross with a vast knowledge of the school's history.

And then there is Daniel - handsome, mysterious, and clearly does not want anything to do with Luce. But Luce can not get him out of her head and thoughts, and she does not know why. All she knows is there is something very familiar about him, she just cannot put her finger on it.

While trying to find her place in Sword and Cross, and trying to figure out who she can really trust, Luce soon becomes faced with a reality that she does not know she can handle. Will she choose Cam or Daniel? Can she trust either at all? Either way, she must choose one, and choose a side in a battle that she has no choice but to be in.

While it took a few chapters for the book to really get going, I loved the development in the beginning of the book - too many times these days there is lacking in that department (if at all). Lauren Kate's use of this development really made all the characters seem alive and real. Another thing Lauren Kate did very well was her descriptions; I was able to clearly imagine Sword and Cross and how dark and dank it was, as if I was really there. I for one, can not wait for the sequel, as the ending of the book was a huge cliffhanger!!!

Format: Paperback
I am a twilight fan and this was the first paranormal romance i read afterwords. I havnt compared it to twilight as its a book in its own right.
Im prob a bit older than intended audience (im 22) but i loved it, and i didnt feel too old for it.

The characters are likable and interesting, it can take a chapter or so to get into it, i was thinking in the first chapter i wouldn't like it, however it drew me in and and i couldn't put the book down again....i carried it around with me reading lines when ever i could.

The story is sown up and all the mystery is all brought together at the end which gives a great and full ending to the book which i feel many books lack.

I wish it had a little more romance in it though!

This is the first in the series and its incredibly captivating book. It has romance, mystery and twists. It a nice read.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good paranormal romance novel!
