Okay, so, story time: I had tried writing this review a while ago, but, surprise, surprise, my computer quit on me before I had any time to react (and most of the review was done), and, poof! It was gone. So I got incredibly pissed off and didn't come back to re-write it, but I suppose now that most of the anger and general feelings of self-pity is over, I will try and make this review even better than the original here goes nothing.

First off, this book was just very.... strange
So the other day I'm in Fortinos with my sister, and we're standing over the muffin trays trying to decide which muffins to buy. I'm a creature of habit, and I want blueberry, but she says they don't have any.

"They do." I point to them. "Right there."

"But we always get blueberry."

"That's because we like them. Everybody likes blueberry."

She picks up a tray of cranberry and says, "Why don't we try these? Or we could have the carrot ones."

This is my sister. She's always chomping at the fucking bit to "try something new", like weird vegan gluten-free cupcakes

Let's go Luce and Cam! This needs to happen!


Fallen books are my guilty pleasure and I can't help and say I am so glad this books didn't suck. It so didn't!

I was expecting this whole boring story that would make me fall asleep. Sure,there were some less interesting parts. I struggled through the first half but then it quickly picked up and things were starting to make sense.

We learn more about Lucinda's connection with Lucifer,Daniel and Luce remain (too) cute and Cam is still a flawless God(pardon f

"The only way to survive eternity is to be able to appreciate each moment."

Beautiful. That’s the only word that’s coming to my mind at the moment. This was absolutely beautiful.

Reading this series was worth every second of my time. The first book threw me off, but from the last book I have been reading like I am addicted. The plot, the story, the characters, the very purpose of the plot unraveled in the most amazing way and left me breathless. A lot has happened, we’ve questioned

“It isn’t goodbye. It’s until we meet again.”

I really hate this type of ending which leaves a black hole in my heart and shatters my soul to its irreversible point. But I can't deny that it's a beautiul one to their epic love, or whatever you call it, after what they have been through in Passion. Daniel, Luce, and their friends must stop Lucifer from renewing the history by using the Announcer to change the place where the Fallen first happened. I was so excited and I read this book right after I finished

Screw the haters :)

Cannot wait for the fourth & final installment of the Fallen series to hit the shelves. I'll be pre-ordering this as I did with Passion.
EDIT : OH LOOK, LUCE IS MEANT FOR SOMEONE ELSE. Does that mean we have a new love triangle in the picture? What an unforeseen turn of events! What an interesting plotline we haven't explored before! Sign me up for this new territory!


Rapture, the final book in the Fallen series. The story is over. Okay, it is a bit sad that it's over, mainly because i can't write these reviews anymore but i don't think i could handle another book with Luce and Daniel. For a change i will start by saying this booterritory!
Dear Cam, I adore you(: You're the only interesting character in these freaking books.

Oh, pretty cover! I really hope this is the final cover.

I finally finished reading the series. I did not wish to finish book for 2 reasons. First reason is that I had great expectation with Passion and it was not as awesome as I had expected. Second reason is that as annoying as Luce is, I did not wish to end the series and end reading about Daniel.
Eventually I could get pass my annoyance for Luce and ended the series.

Ms Kate did a good job with the ending and managed to keep her readers confused of what Lucinda Pr

Actual rating is 2.5 stars. Yeah, I know right? I expected to give a lower rating.

So. That's it, then. I've finally ended this hot mess of a series.

And . . . surprisingly, I'm satisfied.

I will admit that I actually gave Passion, the third book in the series, a three-star rating. It was not as painfully horrible as the first two books, which I both gave one star ratings. But still, even

Oh man, this cover is so gorgeous I feel bad that I'm not going to read it!

After the travesties of Fallen and Torment I refused to read any more. But just looking at this beautiful cover makes me want to eat my words. I gave my copies of the books away and now I want to go and buy hardcover versions! And I HATED the books and was miserable for days after I read them.

A pity the Passion cover was so crap, because this one is up to the same standard as the first and second a

I am in awe of this series... If there is any epic love story, then it's the one from Luce and Daniel. Fallen was one of the first books I read after my Twilight Obsession and I love this series ever since. Funny enough, I fell in love with Daniel the minute he flipped Luce off when they first met in Fallen. This series broke me heart so many times, I cried so many times and I swooned so many times. Finally, with Rapture we get closure. We had a wonderf
This was quite and ending to a wonderful series, and I have to say that Rapture really tugged at my heart. I didn't think I would have this reaction. I didn't think the end of the series would affect me this much, but it has. I am saddened to know that Rapture is the final book *actually crying here.* And no one will understand this more than my fellow readers *sniff sniff.* I really hate saying goodbye to characters that I have grown to love over the years. We have shared some good times, and b ...more
NEVER AGAIN WILL I HAVE TO READ ANOTHER BOOK IN THIS SERIES! I'm sorry, i'm just so excited that it's over. I could rant and rave about all the plot holes and "plot surprises" (i.e the surprises that you could easily guess 1/4 of the way through the book) but i won't. I will leave it at this- For the sake of your sanity, don't read this series. In fact, don't read ANY books by her.

based on the reviews from the previous books, hope it's that last and that it answers our questions! I have only read the first book, I'm planning on checking out the 3 books from my local library. Honestly why do authors make the main female character so ANNOYING! -.-

God saved Lauren Kate from readers like us by making a pretty cover for her last book.
Now God, save us by giving us a nice ending by Lauren Kate for this disastrous series.

This series was not my favorite at all. I totally loved the first book, but the second and third sequel took me forever to finish. But I think "Rapture" was able to redeem itself. I admit that I was totally lost with some recap scenes, but I think the story was good. Although I never expected the ending to be good.

I totally loved Cam. I was really hoping he could atleast have a happy ending for himself, but I was wrong. Coz' until the end, Cam's love for Luce was sad and wasn't returned. I was

Recommends it for: YA readers who wants to read an example of true love!, Hopeless Romantics like me. *sighs*
As the last installment for the Fallen series, Lauren Kate did a truly spectacular grand finale for one of the best YA book series. It made me feel a lot of emotions like happiness, sadness and a mixture of both. It made me laugh, anxious and cry. Now, that's the true definition of an unforgettable story.

What I Love:

[_] The plot. Ever since I had read Fallen, I know there's something worth reading in it. Have you ever read a YA book where there are two lovers and the girl keeps on dying
What I'm hopeful for is that Luce ends up with Cam. I just adore him! Daniel is so cut and dry in his manner. I might be missing the whole point of the series but it annoys me to no end that he won't choose a side. Cam is more shades of grey that I think compliment Luce better. I think there is something more there than Luce wants to admit. Plus I'm so sick of the whole obsessive love that transcends all reason (think Twilight). Plus it is insanely predictable that the "good" guy gets the girl. ...more

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

Review: better than 1 and 2, though I find 3 the best one in the series. The ending seemed a bit rushed to me. However, the books do read easily.
I can't say that I'm sorry to see this series end. I'm glad I bought them as a bargain, and that I've sold them again for the same price.
Nope, I will not read number 5 from Cam's point of view, nor will I read the short stories. I'm done with the series :p

[Wednesday, March 28, 2012] I really want to see how the story will end. I hated the third book, but I loved the first two, so I hope the ending will be strong and filled with that Gothic sense that was missing in her third book.

Mortality is the most romantic story ever told. Just one chance to do everything you should. Then, magically, you move on.

Something to listen to while reading this ♥

What a wonderful conclusion for a series, in my opinion. The last book in the Fallen quartet was the most fast pacing of them all, as it did not just involve the romance with Daniel and Luce's confusion, but also was a fresh dive into the world of fallen angel, sprinkled with fights, secrets and action,/>

So, we have the conclusion of Lauren Kate's Fallen series.

I have to say: as much as I trash this series, it does hold a place in my heart. It's like that annoying sibling you love, but want to punch so damn bad.

I stared out LOVING this series so much, I shoved it onto my friends (sorry guys). They didn't like it as much as I did, and all I had to say was "Whaaaat?"

The second book, I still liked, but not as much as I remember loving the first. It took me a coup
