I knew I was in trouble when I couldn't remember the events from the first book, FALLEN. However, I requested this book, and really wanted to read it. I just had some problems with it.

First off, Luce is hurried off from Sword & Cross to a school in California. San Francisco to be exact. It's for her own safety and due to a truce that Daniel made with Cam. I can't even remember the name of the school or her roommate.

I liked FALLEN a lot, but this story was one that I've read before. I've seen before. There is nothing new here. Daniel tells Luce that he has to stay away from her for her own safety. Blah blah blah. Yet, he shows up nearly every other page. Luce is finding out what the black shadows are. And really, the explanation was just about as ludicrous as you could get.

Even Cam the bad guy who's probably the most interesting character in FALLEN is boring in this installment. I know people are looking forward to this book, but I say skip it and read something else.


  1. What a bummer! It was on my short list but after this review I think I will wait list it.


  2. Wasn't a huge fan of this one either. Was pretty bummed out because I really enjoyed Fallen.
