Luce Price is still reeling from a terrifying night in which her boyfriend died. She can't explain what happened, and as a result, she's sent to a reform school where among her many odd classmates, she meets Daniel. She has a connection with him that she can't explain, but he seems to hate her. But the reason for his disdain is something she never could have guessed.
For many teens that yearn for more mysterious beings and the thrill of forbidden love in their stories, Fallen will be a good read. However, Luce's character seems to be just ordinary, and I never felt a true connection to her. The chemistry between Daniel and Luce is a little dull and forced; it would have been more fascinating to expand upon their past together, as it is only hinted at in a few places throughout the book. The other lead character, Cam, came off as a bit too assuming and his true role in the plot was easy to guess, along with a few other supporting characters. The whole book was quite predictable to me, and a bit too tedious for my liking. Die-hard YA supernatural fans and those who enjoyed Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick may enjoy Fallen, but rent it from the library.
Cover Comments: This cover is spooky and dark looking, which fits the content well. Very nice.
