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.Read more ›
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!
Please rate my review as helpful :)
I read the blurb on this one and thought I would give it a go, a nice change from Edward and Bella and it seemed well written and thought through.
My daughter is presently sitting her end of term exams and has still found the time to read this very thick book. Reading is not her strong point the book has to be exceptionally good for her to even get past first chapter. She refused to read J K Rowling hated the style of writing found Joseph Delaney not to her taste but is a Stephanie Meyers fan through and through.
She enjoy this book very much and likes the characters as well as the story line. She would not pass this book onto a male friend but would a female. For her to have read the book at the speed she has it would have to be a very good book indeed. If your teenagers liked Stephanies Meyers or like Evermore then this could be a book to buy for an xmas stocking filler.
Lauren Kate's Gothic romance seeths with the archetypal tumult of star-crossed passions, in which the supernatural element serves as heady spice. Lucinda and her fallen angel channel Romeo and Juliet, Heathcliff and Cathy, their audience falls under the spell of a love that is not only undying, but immortal.
Fallen will leave you wanting more!

Okay, this book reads very similarly to twilight. And it's not the highest quality writing in places, but this is the kind of book you pick up for brain candy, not literature... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jade
