What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Get ready to fall . . .

The prologue was the best part of Fallen. Honestly, the rest of the book was a painfully drawn out version of those first few pages with a different ending.

I barely finished this book. When I first started it, I was excited by the prologue. It was dark and sexy and made me think that this book was going to be awesome. I WAS SO WRONG. SO WRONG.

Honestly Luce annoyed me. Daniel annoyed me. Cam annoyed me. EVERYONE annoyed me. They were all just annoying characters. They were flat and boring and didn’t make me interested in them AT ALL. It was like trying to care about the romantic life of a mosquito. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point.

When Luce wasn’t ogling over Daniel, Cam, or both at the same time (which happened quite frequently) she was crying about something. About what you may ask? I have no idea because usually it didn’t really matter to the plot in the long run.

The whole romance aspect of the book was cringe worthy. It wasn’t cute or sexy or anything. It was just painful. There was no spark between any of the characters except what was said out loud… and even that was painful to read. I just couldn’t get on board with it.

Also, although there were moments thrown into the book that were meant to be shocking, they ended up just being kind of boring and didn’t have the surprise factor that they were meant to. This book was just a flop for me. Needless to say, I won’t be reading the next one.

I am going to give Fallen one out of five hearts.
