Book Review: Passion by Lauren Kate (Fallen Series #3)

Genre : Romance, Young Adult, Paranormal
Format : eBook
Rating : 3/5 stars

At last… the momentum of this series picked up speed.

Book Review: Torment by Lauren Kate (Fallen Series #2)

Book Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate (Fallen Series #1)

Genre : Romance, Young Adult, Paranormal
Format : eBook
Rating : 2/5 stars

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 . . .
