Summary: There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move. Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
Book Review: One girl, one boy an epic love story. Cheesy yes, good kinda. This isn't a total romance novel though. It has some action and plot twists. Overall though I thought that it didn't stand out from all the rest of the "fallen angel" novels. It was good, but the story line was a little too predictable. Plus the whole love thing with Luce and Daniel continuing lifetime after lifetime is going a little overboard. Basically it's like others books that I have read with some plot twists. Good writing, just not my taste in books.
I know that I said that I didn't really like the first bok Fallen. So why am I reading the second book in the series? I have this thing where if I don't hate a book I have to finish the series. Is that weird?
