Fallen is a book that was rotated to me by my friend, Natalie. She really liked it and wanted to get this series started amongst our club. I read this book in a little under three days. Partly because the print is very large and partly because it is a young adult novel, targeted at teeny boppers. Needless to say, it was a quick and easy peasy read. I enjoyed and am looking forward to reading the second installment, Torment.
The basic gist of the story is that Luce, the protaganist, is sent to the reform school of Sword & Cross. You learn the reason why Luce is there has to do with the suspicious death of her prior love interest. Daniel Grigori, Luce's new love interest at Sword & Cross, treats her with disdain and irritation. Yet, she can't keep her mind off of him...is this fate? Why is she constantly compelled to be around him and if she's not, think of him? You begin to understand why at the end of the story...
