Mais um volume da continuação da saga da família Casteel, em que a vida de Heaven continua a atravessar altos e baixos, aparecendo surpresas ao virar de cada esquina.
É interessante ler uma trama passada há bastantes anos, no tempo em que não haviam telemóveis, computadores, internet, etc; e verificar que mesmo sem estas modernices se conseguia criar uma história que nos prende até à última página e que nos faz sentir um turbilhão de emoções.
Sinto que a Heaven e o Logan já fazem parte dos meus di

This was just a really enjoyable continuation of the story. It's true that the same plot points are visited over and over, but the characters are just as endearing as ever. It was interesting to get a closer look into the rivalry between Fanny and Heaven and it was nice to finally see Heaven come into her own.

Novels that were truly written by Ms. Andrews were Flowers in the Attic, Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, My Sweet Audrina, Heaven, and Dark Angel. When Virginia became seriously ill while writing the Casteel series, she began to work even harder, hoping to finish as many stories as possible so that her fans could one day share them. Since her death many have wondered whether there would continue to be new V.C. Andrews novels. Beginning with the final books in the Cast ...more

I enjoy these books less and less as the series goes on.

Wow, these books are legit a soap opera in written form.(view spoiler)

Parts of this story I also find extremely unrealistic.(view spoiler)

Great book! The installments in this series just keep getting better and better. I can't believe I didn't read this when I was younger!

I haven't quite finished reading this book yet, but am beginning to wonder if I ever will. I can't say I hate it or that I love it just have some mixed feelings about it. It has seemingly taken me forever to get through Fallen Hearts. I told myself at first it was because during the course of reading it, my condo flooded and I had to move out for a few days while the place was being dried out. But that can't be right. My temporary home had no access to my computer with all it's games, videos and ...more

Even though this wasn't written by the great V C herself, I still loved every bit of this. There was, of course, that little spark missing - that special style that only V. C. Andrews could write. She had a magical way of weaving beauty into every scene, every turn of phrase. Even the most shockingly sentimental lines seemed romantic when she wrote them. I'm afraid nobody can replace that.
However, this was a great imitation, and fed my hunger to discover how Heaven's tragic life story continues.

It's not like the first two books in this series were fine literature, but when the ghostwriter took over, the quality really went downhill. The same phrases and themes cropped up over and over, and got really repetitive. Plus, I thought the characters were out-of-character. At least this one had less incest.

I read the earlier V.C. Andrews books when I was growing up. I think they helped to prepare me for what I could find behind closed doors while completing assessments as a social worker...:)

Doubtless Fallen Hearts might have been a bit different if VCA had been able to finish this story before her untimely death. Neiderman didn't keep all the facts straight from Dark Angel, as the exact details of Troy's death/return, and nearer the end of Fallen Hearts, the writing feels a bit more distinctly different.

However, this is still a decent continuation of the Casteel saga. Having the truth revealed (that Leigh wasn't the little tramp that Troy made her out to be) felt good. I know some

The plot thickens in this third book of the Casteel saga. So many twists, surprises, drama, mystery, you name it! There were times when I wanted to cry, others when I wanted to throw something to the wall, and of course others when I wanted to close the book so the drama would stop.
Heaven goes through SO much in this book (yes, so-much!), I again feel sorry for all the things that happen to her and being surrounded by people who are plain evil.
I hated Fanny more than ever, that obnoxious, selfis

Genialne..jak zwykle poruszające,dramatyczne,drazniace...Fanny jest postacią wg. mnie najbardziej pokrzywdzona i tak bardzo mi jej żal.Nie umiem zloscic się za jej postępowanie wobec siostry.Jak może kochać..jak może cokolwiek rozumieć,gdy nikt jej tego nie nauczył.Heaven ma zupełnie inna osobowość,szła dzielnie przez życie...dopiela swego.Nigdy nie pomogła Fanny,by stała się inna osoba.Nie mogła na nikogo liczyć,sama,otoczona ludźmi lekkich obyczajów...Szczerze też,bardzo bym chciała by Troy od ...more

The first two books in this series were not as good as the "Dollanganger" series or "My Sweet Audrina", but there were still good. Like "Gardens of Shadows" this book was started by V.C. Andrews and finished by Andrew Neiderman and it was the weakest in the series, with characters occasionally getting a little out of character. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't very good either and I rate it 4/10 stars. There are two more books, in this series, and they are both written completely by Andrew Neide ...more
The Casteel series was my favorite, more than the Flowers in the Attic series. But as much as I loved Heaven and her books back then, I know I started getting fed up with the same plot points over and over, like the mean and greedy sister who would purposely hurt the main character, the untrustworthy father, and the wonderful boyfriend who eventually cheated but was sorry....although, if you enjoy V.C. Andrews. then this is a great series!

Not anything that I would read now...but I loved these bo

Heaven and Logan finally had they're beautiful wedding but then Tony assaults Heaven again. All Heaven wants to do is be happy and loved by Logan and do her teaching. But Tony lures them back and Logan thinks Heaven would be happy being around the lavish lifestyle she gave up. It all threatens to take away the happiness she has fought so hard for.
I really enjoyed the first two books but I hated how everything got reiterated. That never happened in the dollanger series and didn't happen after the first book. It was almost a struggle to get through in some parts where as the other two books I read quickly. I do like the characters though and I enjoyed the few twists it had.

obviously this book was written by the ghostwriter. the characters have no dimensions, while i always thought Heaven was kind of a cry baby she did make herself a good case here for redemption. Logan and Fanny both still are awful.

one of the best, most loved series/authors of all time. V.C. Andrews books are something so easily recognizable and new books continue to evolve to go with the times and bring in a whole new generation of loving readers

Told you Logan was a big stupid jerk. Plus one star for the parts with Troy in them. I'd say half related less important than NOT A BIG STUPID JERK. Jeez, why am I still so emotional about this?
