Okay, so, story time: I had tried writing this review a while ago, but, surprise, surprise, my computer quit on me before I had any time to react (and most of the review was done), and, poof! It was gone. So I got incredibly pissed off and didn't come back to re-write it, but I suppose now that most of the anger and general feelings of self-pity is over, I will try and make this review even better than the original here goes nothing.

First off, this book was just very.... strange
So the other day I'm in Fortinos with my sister, and we're standing over the muffin trays trying to decide which muffins to buy. I'm a creature of habit, and I want blueberry, but she says they don't have any.

"They do." I point to them. "Right there."

"But we always get blueberry."

"That's because we like them. Everybody likes blueberry."

She picks up a tray of cranberry and says, "Why don't we try these? Or we could have the carrot ones."

This is my sister. She's always chomping at the fucking bit

Let's go Luce and Cam! This needs to happen!


Fallen books are my guilty pleasure and I can't help and say I am so glad this books didn't suck. It so didn't!

I was expecting this whole boring story that would make me fall asleep. Sure,there were some less interesting parts. I struggled through the first half but then it quickly picked up and things were starting to make sense.

We learn more about Lucinda's connection with Lucifer,Daniel and Luce remain (too) cute and Cam is still a flawless Go

Screw the haters :)

Cannot wait for the fourth & final installment of the Fallen series to hit the shelves. I'll be pre-ordering this as I did with Passion.

Thoughts before reading:

Oh, the last one. And i don't think I'll buy it. I'm soooo disappointed with the course of these series.
I keep saying to myself "One last time! You can do it! One more book with Luce and it's over!" I. WANT.ANSWERS. After 3 books I'm so damn confused i can't even re-read the previous books because I'll get more confused than i am already.I've forgotten how many questions i have. Lauren Kate better give the answers AT LAST. Her complicated piece of shit love

Dear Cam, I adore you(: You're the only interesting character in these freaking books.

Oh, pretty cover! I really hope this is the final cover.

I finally finished reading the series. I did not wish to finish book for 2 reasons. First reason is that I had great expectation with Passion and it was not as awesome as I had expected. Second reason is that as annoying as Luce is, I did not wish to end the series and end reading about Daniel.
Eventually I could get pass my annoyance for Luce and ended the series.

Ms Kate did a good job with the ending and managed to keep her readers confused of what Lucinda Price really is unti
Oh, my god....there's another one? I haven't even brought myself to suffer through Passion yet....I'm still recovering from the train wreck that was Torment.

Oh man, this cover is so gorgeous I feel bad that I'm not going to read it!

After the travesties of Fallen and Torment I refused to read any more. But just looking at this beautiful cover makes me want to eat my words. I gave my copies of the books away and now I want to go and buy hardcover versions! And I HATED the books and was miserable for days after I read them.

A pity the Passion cover was so crap, because this one is up to the same standard as the first and second and it's so beautiful I w

Actual rating is 2.5 stars. Yeah, I know right? I expected to give a lower rating.

So. That's it, then. I've finally ended this hot mess of a series.

And . . . surprisingly, I'm satisfied.

I will admit that I actually gave Passion, the third book in the series, a three-star rating. It was not as painfully horrible as the first two books, which I both gave one star ratings. But still, even though I did quite like Passion, my hopes

I am in awe of this series... If there is any epic love story, then it's the one from Luce and Daniel. Fallen was one of the first books I read after my Twilight Obsession and I love this series ever since. Funny enough, I fell in love with Daniel the minute he flipped Luce off when they first met in Fallen. This series broke me heart so many times, I cried so many times and I swooned so many times. Finally, with Rapture we get closure. We had a wonderf

based on the reviews from the previous books, hope it's that last and that it answers our questions! I have only read the first book, I'm planning on checking out the 3 books from my local library. Honestly why do authors make the main female character so ANNOYING! -.-

God saved Lauren Kate from readers like us by making a pretty cover for her last book.
Now God, save us by giving us a nice ending by Lauren Kate for this disastrous series.

My ideal ending for this series:
Luce dies by a fail transplant of angel wings and thought it'd be a good idea to fly off a cliff -- the one in the cover -- with Daniel.


*clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*

Nonononono, I'm totally kidding. Lauren Kate's ending was much better than mine.

Her writing is so atmospheric and nostalgic. It really hits close to home, especially this book. Right from the start the book had my interest and picked up straight into action in barely the first two or three chapte
What I'm hopeful for is that Luce ends up with Cam. I just adore him! Daniel is so cut and dry in his manner. I might be missing the whole point of the series but it annoys me to no end that he won't choose a side. Cam is more shades of grey that I think compliment Luce better. I think there is something more there than Luce wants to admit. Plus I'm so sick of the whole obsessive love that transcends all reason (think Twilight). Plus it is insanely predictable that the "good" guy gets the girl. ...more

As the last installment for the Fallen series, Lauren Kate did a truly spectacular grand finale for one of the best YA book series. It made me feel a lot of emotions like happiness, sadness and a mixture of both. It made me laugh, anxious and cry. Now, that's the true definition of an unforgettable story.

What I Love:

[_] The plot. Ever since I had read Fallen, I know there's something worth reading in it. Have you ever read a YA book where there are two lovers and the girl keeps on dying at th
NEVER AGAIN WILL I HAVE TO READ ANOTHER BOOK IN THIS SERIES! I'm sorry, i'm just so excited that it's over. I could rant and rave about all the plot holes and "plot surprises" (i.e the surprises that you could easily guess 1/4 of the way through the book) but i won't. I will leave it at this- For the sake of your sanity, don't read this series. In fact, don't read ANY books by her.

THAT was the series was about?!?! All the bloodshed, all the heartache, and THAT was the cause of it all?!?! I'm truly flabbergasted! And then to say, (view spoiler) What. The. Heck?!?! It's just with all the trouble everyone went through, I was just expecting it to be some apocalyptic battle at the end, and it ended up being an anticlimactic um, agreement?

So, we have the conclusion of Lauren Kate's Fallen series.

I have to say: as much as I trash this series, it does hold a place in my heart. It's like that annoying sibling you love, but want to punch so damn bad.

I stared out LOVING this series so much, I shoved it onto my friends (sorry guys). They didn't like it as much as I did, and all I had to say was "Whaaaat?"

The second book, I still liked, but not as much as I remember loving the first. It took me a couple tries to get into.

Third is where
WOW i can't wait almost 9 months for this book to come out well it's worth it im just going to have to go to the library and find a long series of books so that wont have to think about what is goiing to happen in this book.

Kinda cant wait till this dam book get out next year,
quite interested to know the end of all this,
But i believe i would enjoy this book as much as i enjoyed the others,

I hope it doesn't leave questions unanswered like, How did Daniel and Luce meet?

Luce: "Daniel how did we first me, please tell me you keep avoiding this question."
Daniel: "Well it started a long long time ago, in a place called..." Daniel stops and looks into the distance
"Luce we have to get out of here NOW" yadda yadda

Honestly, I don't get why people bother to type in those reviews if all they are going to do is hate this book ANYWAY.

Ignoring the haters, I personally like these books very much. I expected them to be superb, but they are good. Fallen was quite good in the beginning and towards the end it had picked up its pace. But as many people say, it didn't give me any answers. Then Torment was all over the place but still I had no problem reading it. The only complaint was that it was fairly paced in the
