YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009


Synopsis: There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

Check out this cool trailer!

  56. Does Lauren Kate have a website?

    Kate’s reply:

    At the moment a Google search says no. But maybe in future she’ll have one. If you’re planning on requesting an arc, I think there might not be any more left. Lots of people been getting Fallen these few weeks so I’m glad I managed to reserve one for giveaway.

    Fallen book website: http://www.fallenbooks.com

    Lauren Kate also has another book coming out in a few days! The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove.🙂

  57. I SO want to read Fallen! So, so, so, so, soooo want need it. That trailer is awesome. The cover is gorgeous. I love fallen angels. The story sounds amazing. What more? Oh! A fantastic contest. Yeah, I’m in love😀
