Book Summary

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.


Book Review

Fallen is as nice as its cover. One thing that piqued my curiosity about this book is certainly the cover – it is dark, sexy, and one of its kind. It somehow promises a nice read. At first I thought it was a vamp lit again, after reading Twilight – I decided I needed to get a break from fangs.  Surprise, surprise, the plot revolved around star-crossed lovers, reincarnation and the ancient fight between the good and evil.

I was quite surprise by the twist and turns of the plot – as well as the development of the characters as the story ends. I’m glad it is not predictable, and I ended up turning the pages more and more, eager to see who’re on the good side and on the other side.

Was I disappointed? Not really. The only problem with this book is that Luce (Lucinda) constantly asks question that was never answered. Until the book ended, I kept on asking what does she needs to know? Well, I guess I have to buy the next book, don’t I?
