Great beginning - disappointed in the rest,
This review is from: Fallen: Book 1 of the Fallen Series (Paperback)
I had high hopes for this book. I read the prologue in a bookstore, and was instantly hooked. I should have begun reading chapter one, then perhaps I wouldn't have been so hasty in my purchase.
The story premise was good, the hooks there for the reader - lots of questions, and very few answers.
However, it took so long to get anywhere. There seemed an inordinate amount of description as to where the heroine was, why she was there, and who she was with, before the slightest thing happened, and then, after that, you were waiting again an inordindate amount of time before something else happened. I feel it could have been severely condensed, and it then would have made a better book.
I realise there is another book coming out that follows on from this one, and I am intrigued with the points/questions raised in "Fallen", but not enough to attempt to read it. It was a struggle enough to get through this one, which is such a shame, as I believe, at its heart, there is a good story desperately trying to get out.
