Rapture – Lauren Kate

“The sky is dark with wings…

And time is running out for Luce and Daniel.

In order to stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the fall began.  Only Luce can break the curse, and it is her choice alone that will decide all of their fates.

But as Dark Forces gather, great sacrifices will have to be made in this final, epic struggle…

In the fight for Luce, and for love, who will win?”

I had been eagerly awaiting this final book in the Fallen series and it did not disappoint me because it was full of everything I have come to expect from this fantastic series – romance, action, complications and so many difficult decisions!

I quickly fell back in to the story and couldn’t put it down, this book now joins the many other books in my ‘one-day read’ list.

Cam has always been one of my favourite characters in this series and that didn’t change this time, he still had that confident charm that I love so much and part of me has always hoped that he might become something more to Luce.

As I was reading through this book there was a real feeling of urgency from everyone, complicated angel politics led to an exciting and tense race against time which had me on the edge of my seat.

Dee was an interesting character, I wasn’t sure what to make of her but when her purpose was revealed I was actually quite surprised that I hadn’t seen it coming.

Being the last book in the series I knew it would be dramatic but I wasn’t prepared for some of the sad moments that occurred during the battle to save history, I didn’t expect to find myself crying whilst reading this book but there were a couple of things that really pulled at my heart-strings.

It was good to finally get an explanation for everything and it wasn’t anything I had predicted either which was refreshing.

The epilogue was brilliant but still held a touch of sadness for me, the only negative thing I would say is that I would have liked more of it!

An action-packed, emotional read that finished off the series beautifully.

Rapture can be purchased here or from most good book retailers.

Fallen in Love – Lauren Kate

“Unexpected.  Unrequited. Forbidden.  Eternal.  Everyone has their own love story.  And in a twist of fate, four extraordinary love stories intersect over the course of a romantic Valentine’s Day in medieval England.

Miles and Shelby find love where they least expect it.  Roland learns a painful lesson about finding and losing love.  Arriane pays the price for a love so fierce it burns.  And for the first – and last – time, Daniel and Luce spend a night together like none other.”

I absolutely loved the Fallen series so I was really excited to read these extra tales from the Fallen world.  Like the other books in the series, once I had started reading I was completely captivated, these books always make me feel like I’m actually there in the story with them.

This romantic book has been beautifully written, I loved the way each character’s tale blends so easily into the next and how it gives you a further insight into the histories of some of the other characters.  After reading the first three books in the series I felt like I knew Daniel and Luce pretty well but always seemed to have questions about the other characters, with this book I feel like some of those questions have been answered and I know them better.

At the back of this book was a preview of the final book in the series, Rapture, and I now look forward to reading the rest of it with a much better understanding of all the main characters.

There are some truly romantic moments in this story but also some lessons to be learned, a couple of the characters found out the hard way that love isn’t always easy and I really felt for them and wished things could go their way.

A romantic book that warms your heart one moment and breaks it the next, it’s definitely a must for all Fallen fans.
