Okay, I know a lot of people have had issues with this book. But I didn't. I loved it. I know that it's basically just Luce stepping in and out of Announcers in different times and places, but I loved seeing her past lives with Daniel. I loved seeing them fall in love so deeply each time, it was so romantic. As you should already know if you've read the first two books (Which you better have if you're reading this review!!!), Daniel has had to watch Luce die over, and over, and over again with each reincarnation. He falls in love with her as a different person, with the same soul, each time and she falls in love with him and just as they start to proclaim that love, poof. She dies. It's so tragic, but such a romantic tragic love story.
Also, in this third installment, you get to read Daniel's point-of-view. Every other chapter is Daniel's. I really loved seeing through his eyes and getting an insight on his feelings and the way he thinks. It also adds a lot to the history of him and Luce, and the fallen angels.
The only thing that I can remember really bugging me was the fact that it seemed like Luce STILL needed to know about her love with Daniel after so many past lives. She knew after so many of them that their love was true, and she kept whining about missing him. I know, though, that this book was about learning about the past with them. But I hated how she basically whined through the whole thing.
And ugh, Bill. I knew something was up with him as soon as Luce met him. I was always suspicious of him, even when I kind of liked how he helped Luce. But the whole time I was waiting for him to do something. Not going to go into too much detail about him, ha. Or I'll give away everything with him and rant on and on and on about how...nevermind!
Overall, I loved this installment. I'm dying to read Rapture, but I want to save some time and read Fallen in Love. I'm really sad that Rapture is the last book. These books make me cry so hard. They make my heart hurt. The writing flows well and you fly through SO many pages so fast, even though the chapters are super long. Which I don't mind in these books. If you haven't tried this series yet, please do! I know a lot of people stay away from them because they are the type that is either a love, or a hate relationship. Can't be so-so about it, or at least I haven't seen anybody with a "Ooh, yeah I liked it. It was okay." feeling about it.(less)
This series has become one of my favorites this year. I started the series in late November and couldn't stop thinking about them, so of course I continued on and finished the series! I finished this book last week, and since then I have been trying to find a way to write my review. Nothing has come to me. I don't know what to write! This series is so good! And believe it or not, I think this book--the last in the series--may be my favorite one of all three. I know, crazy!
I'm really sad that this series is over. But at the same time it, the ending was as perfect as imaginable. I'm not going to say anything more about it because I don't want to spoil it if you haven't read it. But I'm very content with it. =)
Belly may have been a bit immature and whiny in the beginning of series, but each year that passed and she grew older and experienced more, she grew! I really like the woman she grew into.
Belly was the only point-of-view in the first book, and then it was Belly and Jeremiah's point-of-view in the second book, and in this book it was Belly and Conrad which I loved! Conrad has grown up so much since the first book. All of the characters have really. You really get to understand how Conrad really feels for Belly and the torment he has over letting her go.
Overall, this series really gets you a real feel for true love. It makes you think about that ONE true love and how if it's meant to be, then it will happen. Which I really loved. =) Everything felt real to me. So thank you Jenny Han! It would be awesome if she maybe created an adult series of what happens with Belly and that certain someone. I would definitely read it! I'm really curious of what happens after the ending of this book. (less)
Even though I absolutely loved the first book, this one took me a little bit to get into. I don’t really know why. But as soon as I kept reading and got a little ways in, it completely dragged me into the story and I was hooked all over again. I love Violet’s world, no matter how creepy and dark it may be sometimes.
I love the mystery in this series. This one had a pretty big twist in it, making you think it was one person, but another person held the imprint. Sometimes I was able to predict what would happen next, but not always. This series is a little creepy sometimes to read at night. I was always looking around to make sure I wasn’t being watched. I knew I wasn’t, but I felt like I was, which adds a bit to the story, ha! And just like the first book, their is some parts in the book from someone else's point-of-view which adds to the mystery of trying to figure out who it is.
Even though you don’t get a whole lot about Mike, the new character, you get to know a lot about his past and his family. And I absolutely adore Jay. So. Freaking. Much. *swoon* They are so adorable! It makes me smile every time they are together. Their relationship grows and despite some bumps in the road, they came out stronger in the end. I also think that there may be a love triangle in the third book, which I'm kind of curious about, though I am so Team Jay!
I also really liked Sara Priest and Rafe. I’m very, VERY curious to hear more about them and to see what sort of ability Rafe may have.
Overall, Desires of the Dead wasn’t as amazing as The Body Finder, but it definitely was a great book and I can’t wait to read the next book. I’m very excited for it! (less)
Supernaturally was a great sequel! I've been dying to read this and when I snagged it from the library I couldn't wait to dive into it. It picks up closely to where Paranormalcy left off. The beginning was a little slow, but still overall enjoyable. Kiersten has a way of writing that even if it is slow, you still fly through the pages. Which is a great skill to have!
I loved reading about Evie and Lend. They are so cute and I could read page after page after page of them just doing nothing but spending time with each other. Lend wasn't in this book as much as I had hoped he would of been, but hopefully the next book we'll see lots and lots of Lend. *swoon*
Evie is a bit different in this book. She isn't as sarcastic or filled with fire or spark this time around, but she has a lot going on and she's learned a lot since beginning her journey. Totally understandable! It was kind of nice seeing this side of her and she was still an amazing character even without her fire. She was still sarcastic at times too, just not as much!
We meet a new character in this book too; Jack. He was a pretty likeable character at times, definitely hilarious, there was just something about him always off and suspicious. I'm not going to say anything more about him, though, so I won't give away any spoilers.
And Reth kind of redeemed himself a teensy bit with this book. We'll see how that goes! And as for Arianna, I love her. =) She's so funny. All the characters in this book have a pretty awesome personality, very real.
Overall, Supernaturally wasn't as amazing as the first book was, but still very enjoyable and I'm really excited to see how Kiersten will direct the next book. I'm really sad, though, that it's the final book. But also pretty excited about it to see how Evie's journey will end.
If you haven't read this series yet, get on it! The last book will be out soon! This series is filled with amazing characters, a unique storyline, and awesome writing!(less)
Wow! That's all I keep saying in my head when I think about this book. I thought I loved The Demon Trapper's Daughter, and I do, but it's sequel definitely knocked it out of the ball park. A lot of people debate whether or not sequels are better than the first, in some cases they aren't, but in this one it is! If you haven't read the first book, you should definitely go do it now. I can't stress that enough. You don't want to miss out on this series. It's unique, has a kick ass female protagonist, and just so fun to read. The writing is awesome, Jana Oliver definitely knows how to write. She pulls you in on the first page and doesn't let you off the ride until the last page. But then you're still hooked! You can't get it out of your head. It's embedded into your mind and you have to get your hands on the next book or you suffer the consequences. Withdrawels! I just finished this book last night, and boy am I suffering from withdrawels. They planned this! Have the first two awesome books come out in the same year, and then wait until Winter 2012 for the third to come out. Torture! But anyway, on to the characters. Amazing! They are very well developed. Real. They have problems, they aren't perfect. Just the way I like them! And Riley, poor girl just can't get a break! I'm not going to go further into that because I don't want to give away any spoilers. But god, I feel for her. And hmm, Beck. I'm so team Beck. I realllyyy hope to see some Beck and Riley action in the third book. If I don't, I think I'm going to cry. Please?! The other guys can just go to hell. Literally. Overall, if you haven't figured it out now, this book was amazing. Definitely on my top favorite series list and Jana is definitely on my author watch list. The cover is so pretty. I thought I loved the first book's cover, but this one is my favorite so far. Love the blue and the cemetery background. The model on the cover makes the perfect Riley! (less)
