That other character can often see things in my protagonist that I cannot. They can unlock a scene. I can't often use this material in the finished novel, but it does important work nonetheless.

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere. We can't always understand them, but we have to trust in them. I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.”
Lauren Kate, Torment

“What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?”
Lauren Kate, Fallen

“Trust is a careless pursuit at best. At worst, it's a good way to get yourself killed.”
Lauren Kate, Fallen

message 59: by Sade

Sade Thank you for excepting my friend request!


message 58: by Meechie

Meechie Where can i find the book "Daniel's First Sighting"? I've looked everywhere


message 57: by Meechie

Meechie Will the Fallen Series become a movie series? If so i strongly suggest that Elizabeth Gillies from the Nickelodeon show Victorious should play Luce :)


message 56: by Sam

Sam Happy Authors Day!


message 55: by Bethany

Bethany I just finished the Fallen series and loved it! I also agree that it would be cool for Cam to have his own little series with a love interest and maybe seeing some of Luce and Daniel's current love story along the way. I've seen online that there is supposed to be a movie, but it shows a 2012 release and I can't find any info on it. Do you know about when it might happen?


message 54: by Rena

Rena I enjoyed the Fallen series tremendously plus I loved the cover so I had to own it! I agree with the Cam story line below. I would love to see more of his future. Thanks for filling up my time with worthy entertainment.


message 53: by Ena

Ena Thank you for kindly accepting my friend request. Loved the Fallen series :)


message 52: by l

l Hello!
Thanks so much for adding me ^_^
I thought your Fallen series was great. But I just felt that Cam didn't really get a proper ending. What happened with him? He seemed so important in the series in the first book, but in the last few, not so much.


Amethyst I finished Rapture a few days ago and I loved it especially in the end! It made me cry!!!


Νόρα Thanks for accepting,I love your books!!!!


message 49: by Lucy

Lucy *spoiler alert for those who have not read Rapture*

OMG! I just finished reading Rapture. WOW. It was fantastic. I was a little upset about Gabbe and Molly dying though. And also how Daniel and Luce were reborn as mortals, but you made it work really well. Wasn't expecting her to actually be an angel near the end, no, that hit me in the face with strong force. :D I absolutely LOVE the series. Fantastic job. Truly, you've done a brilliant masterpiece. I don't know how you came up with such a magnificent series, you have done it perfectly. Definitely a 10 out of 5 stars.

Jodie Thanks for accepting, I love Fallen :-)

Disincentive/Feta It's actually amazing you accepted me! :) I have heard so many opinions about your books that I need to read it! I'm really happy it is in polish language version :)


message 45: by Lady

Lady Light Thank you Ms. Kate for letting me be your friend I am currently trying to get the Fallen in Love and Rapture to read. The fallen series is the most romantic and beautiful series I have read. :)


Amethyst Hi Lauren! Thank you for adding me! I'm a big fan of your books! Impatiently waiting for Rapture!! :)
