This is the first novel about angels that I've read. I had my doubts about liking an angel book, especially because I didn't want to end up reading a book based on religion. The good news is this novel barely mentions religion, and for most of the novel the whole angel aspect is skirted around instead of being a focal point.

I spotted this one at the library last week and since I've heard so many good things about this series, I had to check it out to see what all the hype is about. In short, I'm glad I did!

I liked the main character, Luce, who ends up going to a school for troubled teenagers after the suspicious death of a guy she was seeing. The romantic interests are intriguing characters, as are the protagonists.
I love it when characters have a lot more to them than what is originally portrayed, and that is quite a theme in Fallen.

The beginning seemed slow to start for me, but I was intrigued when the story picked up--and it didn't take too long until I was hooked.

I mostly liked the ending though I question the direction the story is taking (not willing to give spoilers but if my concerns are relevant in the second novel, I will be sure to include them in that review), and I'm looking forward to reading the next novel!
