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.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
I have read this book previously but with the movie coming to the United States at some point (soon I hope) I wanted to reread it. Since all of my books (yes I own the series) are in storage I decided I would buy the audio book. I wound up buying the entire series in audio book format for less than $10 and wound up with an ARC copy of Torment (book 2) as well.
Needless to say I got into this book remembering the general story line and character names but that's about it. It was like reading the book for the first time and I loved it. I instantly fell back in love with the story and the characters.
There is a lot happening in this book and somehow it all flows really well and forms a great story. I enjoy Lauren's writing style as well. Now the narrator. I enjoyed the way Justine told this story. I feel like the narration was lacking something. I feel like maybe dual narration (male and female) would have been better. But Justine did a great job in making sure you could tell who was talking.
I look forward to continuing my reread of this series. It's been so long since I read the series that it will be like reading the series for the first time again.
