This story was based in a time when Daniel was trying to stay away from Luce and living on the streets of L.A. I always enjoy seeing how different the thoughts are between Luce and Daniel. I'm not sure I liked how all of the events we know about Daniel's time before Luce Price was in this one night but I am glad that we were able to see what really happened between Daniel and Shelby (which was basically absolutely nothing!)

This short story was quit interesting. I have been wondering how Daniel lived while he didn't get to see Luce and this gave an answer to it and even showed a bit more of Shelby! I have been interested in her since she isn't as much in the picture as some others in the Fallen books and you just don't know that much about her. This gave a bit more information and I wish there was a way to learn more about her.

This is probably my least favorite of the five extras I read. It just felt trivial and unneeded.

The thing with her and Trevor still confuses me. Did he burn because Luce is only allowed to kiss Daniel? Is it their cursed love? I'm wondering if she's ever kissed anyone else in her past lives.

I love seeing inside Daniel's head. He's actually panicked and his every thought is consumed with the love of his entire existence. What agony-to be cursed with losing her every 17 years, and having to do it all over again. I can't believe he's been taken into the police station so many times that he k

It was great seeing a piece of Daniel's life in L.A. and how he ended up at the reform school.

well that was bummy. so again, if daniel was so close with sem, why didnt he mention it in the book? and if he had previously met shelby, why didnt he say so when he met her again at school? and since at school, she obviously knows shes a nephilim, why doesnt daniel tell her that her father was sem? JUST WHY. haha

For a 10 page short, this was actually the most interesting of all the shorts in this series.

More thoughts on this short and the others will appear on Elfie Books blog soon. Check the Lauren Kate page on the blog for reviews and thoughts of the shorts and main books.

Daniel!! I am hooked because of you. Just kinda wondering why in the fallen book they didn't mention anything about Sem. What happen if he was real close to her. Quite a handful Daniel stealing a shopping cart? what for? hahaha.. I hope to get to read more about Shelby soon.

In my opinion this story has a lot of potential and was just too brief. I was intrigued to learn more about Daniel and Shelby's relationship, Sem and how exactly Daniel allowed Miss Sophia to take him to Sword & Cross because he doesnt seem the kind to do something against his will

A quick segment on what Daniel was doing when he was trying to avoid Luce. Interesting but a little boring

A peek into Daniel's life before Sword and Cross. Interesting to see how he lives while trying to avoid Luce. Also, interesting to see a nephilim.

This one was pretty good. Again these are really really short, but this one had some interesting information to provide that certainly sheds some more light on the main storyline. I liked it.

A cute little Fallen short. So glad I can still read a little more about this book even though the series ended a while ago. This truly is one of my favorite series.

It actually contributed with some new information about Daniel, Shelby, and their "relationship."

Fallen has so many short stories, it's kind of ridiculous but awesome. Nice to get insight into someone else's POV.
