Fallen (Fallen #1) by Lauren Kate

Fallen (Fallen, #1)Fallen by Lauren Kate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

My (quick) Review:The book really held my attention and although there were the usual YA book clichés the storyline was switched up a bit. I've read other YA books on angels and paranormal issues, but this book I believe can stand it's own ground as a series. Seeing as how relaxed and concentrated I was to consume this book, I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series.

"A warm feeling came over Luce as she looked around the library. She'd always loved the faintly sweet musty way that only a roomful of books smelled." (74)

"The way the water shimmered int he sunlight, it almost looked like he had wings." (182)

"'You're the human equivalent of a migraine.'" (415)
