I'll start by saying that I'm not an uber-Fallen fan, but I did mostly enjoy the series despite the glaring plotholes and unanswered questions. I'm actually dying to see the movie when it comes out next year and I love love love Daniel Grigori. I immediately pre-ordered this book when Lauren announced the details as I was always intrigued by Cam. I thought - great, we will finally get some answers to some of the questions I had regarding his backstory and possibly an insight into what did happen with him and Luce (if anything) in the past.
What we got instead was a lame, lazy, quite obviously rushed, juvenile piece of storytelling. The blurb pretty much sums up the entire book. Honestly, there is not much more to it than that.
The only reason this is not a 1-star review is down to Lauren Kate's writing. I actually really enjoy her writing and happen to think she's very talented, and I know she can deliver better quality than this. Part of my frustration stems from this, however, the main issues were lack of worldbuilding, character development, and a plot which was practically non-existent.
And don't even get me started on Cam. This was NOT Cam. Cam, as presented in the other books, is a bad-boy with a penchant for trouble, a serious snarky mouth, and a vulnerability that he tries his best to hide. Deep-down inside, he is a good guy, and we see that through his friendships with all the other fallen angels, and his belief in their quest, despite the risks. Underneath it all, I've always suspected he just wants to be loved.Read more ›
But as they say in the classics, the point of life is the journey, and not the destination. And so it is with this book. Reading UNFORGIVEN will not only bless the reader with yet another huge dose of the universe’s most essential ingredient, but we will also get the chance to learn more of the past and back story of Cam, Lilith and, of course, Big Bad Lucifer.
We also learn what it means to have music in your *soul*.
The very structure of the book is what lends the story it’s body, so as you make progress you will see the wisdom in it’s sub plots. And they are highly entertaining, as well as bordering on compelling in their own right. One never really knows the intentions of Lucifer. Obviously, he is the ultimate temptation for those unlucky enough to find themselves in his sights, and so on the one hand, you can see him plotting the downfall of Cam, or Lilith, and yet on the other, he can be seen showing mercy (yes, I said mercy) by giving some assistance to one of these fore mentioned characters.Read more ›
I really enjoyed reading this story. Of course my mind was confused with the name Lilith and, at times, I struggled to separate this character from the Lilith you hear about in so many other stories.
All in all it was a great read and it is making me wonder if there will be more.
The book itself is quite repetitive, and there are no real surprises, feels a little bit like YA love story by numbers. Lacking the depth and special-ness of the original series.
Characters from the original series pop up, which is great, and the flash back scenes are very good. Perhaps the past story was the one that the author should have told.
If you loved the original series like me you will of course want to read this book. But unfortunately I was left disappointed and a little bored.
