The lead up to Daniel and Lucinda's meeting for the first time in this life time, this time from Daniel's POV. If you want a tortured brooding hero, look no further. He makes Edward Cullen look like a ray of sunshine. Really enjoyed this as I found Daniel a very difficult character to get a grip on in the first two books (they are all from Lucinda's POV and her issues with his erratic behaviour) it was nice to see things from his end.

I wish Lauren would publish these shorts altogether in one book. These are interesting and I enjoyed this one. They are providing some interesting insight that makes more of the original book "Fallen" make sense. This one makes me want to go back to Fallen and re-read it.

This gives a little more insight into Daniel and of course the question that burned at the time....why did he flip her off?

I still love the flipping her off part.

I don't know what to do about this series. A part of me likes it, a part of me is confused by it, and a part of me can't wait to finish just so I don't need to read it anymore.

While I do happen to like Daniel's point of view, I want to give the guy some lithium - dude is in love with his sorrow.

I always love the extra, it's great to see what each character go through and what they think.
I found this extra on

A cute little Fallen short. So glad I can still read a little more about this book even though the series ended a while ago. This truly is one of my favorite series.
Also, I'm glad to finally know what Daniel was laughing at the moments before he saw Lucinda for the first time in that lifetime, although, I was expecting a something little more funny, but it's good to finally know, since you know, I always wondered.
Fuck you.

That's my only response to all of these pointless Fallen spinoffs. Lauren Kate, get yourself some writing lessons, get yourself some new idea already!

So that's the first time he saw Luce again, Daniel and Luce really have this past thing i wanted to know. Short stories are really helpful when you really wanted to know bits and pieces not included in the actual book. So far, this is good.

Reading Daniel's point of view before meeting Lucinda is interesting.

What is this? A fucking little short story about a conversation between Cam and Daniel. My passionate hatred for this series is slowly growing... and it can't stop. If I keep writing, I will lose more brain cells than I already have. Despite being a short, it was boring and too many trees died for this. I love shorts, and it's not difficult to make one as they don't need to have a plot, but this... no.

No idea about the series when I picked this novella...really did not read any book description but it got my interest.

Fallen angel...immortals and mortals in the same school...a fallen angel who went back to heaven...messenger angel...tragic love story... violet glowing eyes and temporary coldness when Luce (wherever she is) needed Daniel more than usual...

i liked the interactions he had with the other characters like penny and roland. (although, wtf? roland was someone he talked to a few times. in the middle ages, they were knights together..werent they? didnt say they knew each other well?)
but mostly i liked how purely he loves her and how much it actually hurts him to not love her. thats why i liked this.

I have been wondering for a while what Daniel was thinking the first time he saw Luce again in this life of her and now I finally know it. It's not surprising, kinda expected it to be like this, but still nice to have it confirmed and I enjoy every extra piece of Fallen I can get my hands on so it was nice to read.
Definitely clears many, many things up from the first book; Fallen. Explains why Daniel's hostility towards Luce was so prominent, because he swore her off for what he wanted to be forever in order to protect her. Also shows what really happened to Trevor that night everything burned and he lost his life.

I thought this little shot was really good. It explained some things that were not really explained and could only be explained from Daniel. I love reading the same book from the other person's point of view and it was no different this time. I wouldn't mind reading the whole book from Daniel's POV!
Really struggling to read any of the short stories :( every time I click the fallen saga links it directs me to a page where the page isn't in English, Spanish maybe? I don't know but I would appreciate any help any one can give really frustrating!

It's a sweet short story, how Daniel feels when he's close to Luce. Even before he knows she's there, he can feel her presence, feel her energy and soul. Lovely.

It's kinda Daniel POV of when he and Luce met first at Sword & Cross. But it's nice to have Daniel's view on something.And now I finally know why Daniel was laughing.

Daniel is always thinking what's best for Luce's life and that's why I love him because he loves her so much!
I wish the books had Daniel's POV!

The only reason I've gave this short 'book' 4 stars is, because it's so short. I'm going to read the other short stories too, that's obviously.

Only worth reading to someone who actually enjoyed the series, and as I did not- this was really not worth the time either.

Fallen has so many short stories, it's kind of ridiculous but awesome. Nice to get insight into someone else's POV.
