This is another of those books that baffles me by the number of 5star ratings it's received. Honestly, I just really did not find anything interesting or intriguing in it.

I think a big part of the problem was that nothing at all was adequately explained or developed.

The characters were all very 2d, and very contrived.

Dialogue was cringe-worthy and wooden.

There was absolutely no chemistry between Maggie and Eran. Plus, it was another ridiculous insta-love swoon-over-big-strong-protector thingies which always gets my goat a bit. Ok, so it could be argued that they have this long history together or whatever (I haven't read the other books) but Maggie doesn't remember that so, for her, it's very much the cliched 'I barely know you but you are so the one' type affairs.

And the bad guys? Oh my days. Shallow and nonsensical. They scowl, they glare, they sneer. They send shivers across her neck but...why??? Give em evil chuckling and hand rubbing and they'd have been full-on B Movie style villains.

I hated the ending and her pathetic 'I'm going to save all the ones I care for' decision. Stupid. The final confrontation was...just no. Unbelievable and confusing.

Summary: Story was repetitive and the plot was full of holes. I felt empty after reading it.

I don't think I've put any spoilers in, but just be careful in case you don't agree.

I downloaded this book from my recomendations and I'm glad I did. I'm very much a reader that enjoys romantic suspense books and this certainly ticks the boxes.

I've marked it as 4 stars as I do think some improvements could be made. Mainly the story takes a long time to get going. I seemed to be halfway through the book before anything actually happened which was a shame as I was ready for putting the book down and giving up but I perservered and read on as the latter half of the book really makes up for everything.

Maggie really is a loveable character and you know that as you read on to the 2nd & 3rd book there's going to be so much to learn about Maggie, her lives, her friends, her relationships and just how special a person she is.

In Fallen we're introduced to Ezra, Rufus & felix who are Maggie's housemates and you are left with a distinct feeling that they know more than they let on but that is yet to be proved otherwise, who knows what will come in books 2 & 3. I think these characters have much more to offer and I love how Laury has created these different characters who are on the edge of the story but still very important to it.

The reason I gave this only 4 stars, first of all, is purely because some dates don't add up in the story line and one event in particular changes from being in the 1660's to the 1330's.
If you're a historian or otherwise you may notice they're both wrong anyway! But do not let this deter you. The story is gripping from the beginning and although the main characters consist of your typical overprotective boyfriend and a stubborn strong main female character you can't help but like them. I prefer this to Fallen by Kate Lauren, although there are some striking similarities, this one is for those slightly older. Do not expect the series to be unpredictable, its a YA book, but do expect an exciting and entertaining read, even if you're in your 20s!

I have read plenty of supernatural books through out my time and I like the way in which each one is classic yet original. However in Fallen you can see many aspects of various supernatural themes merged into one, pretty great book. It is 100% addictive and I managed to read it in under 2 days. Unfortunately the reason for me only giving it 3 stars was that if you are a fan of supernatural elements then this book can occasionally be a bit predictable. I also read the sneak peek of the second book in the trilogy and it seems to be a lot better than the first. Overall it was a good read.

Fallen Ones are after Maggie a girl who can talk to the dead in her dreams. After moving to New Orleans Maggie encounters some near death experiences but none of these are accidental in fact there are those who want her dead but Maggie's guardian has other ideas ones that will keep her alive and us guessing.

I'll review this as a series since I have read them. If you like a book with gaping plot holes that goes round and round and around in circles then this is a series of books for you. But I'm going to address some issues below so spoiler alert.

1. If alterums or whatever are good souls who have fell to earth and Eran falls and is an 18 year old when he falls (the same for Gershome in book 3) then when in Paris how come both Maggie and Eran are both children who were born with parents??? I thought that was what caused you to loose your memory if you were reborn ... they knew they were Alterums.

2. If Abaddons great plan was to release the elsics in book 3 and everyone was so horrified then hadn't he already done this in book 2?

3. Fair enough Maggie can deliver messages to to the other side but is this really really that important?

4. All the fallen one's want to kill the messengers simply because they can send them to eternal death.... shouldn't that be a reason to have stayed away from the messengers? All they were doing was carrying messages between family members. If the left them alone then the guardian's would never have been formed and the messengers never would have learned to fight. It just doesn't seem like that big of a reason to attack them.

5. Ok so Marco is a fallen one but he died being a good person. Abandon told him to fall (effectively tricking him as we are told) but when he died would he not have become an Alterum instead of a fallen one. I thought the whole point was you had to do something evil to become a fallen one there isn't anything about Marco being evil before he died. He was actually quite chivalrous.

There are so many more but this series just annoyed me too much I don't want to think about them.
