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.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have I read this story before? I enjoyed this book. The story kept my interest and I wanted to keep reading to find out what the deal was. While there is nothing overly wrong or done poorly in this book, it just isn’t a favourite of mine. It’s just one of those books that I liked, but can’t get excited about. One thing that kept nagging me throughout reading this book is that I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve read this story before. Don’t get me wrong, I’m positive I haven’t read this particular novel before. But I’m sure I’ve read a very similar take on this angel-human epic romance story before. While I was curious where the story was going, I always knew the direction it was headed. I’m sure this story has been told before, or a very similar one. I just can’t think of which book it was! I’ll have to keep thinking on that. That would probably be my only complaint. While the story definitely had its slower parts, it was good as a whole. The characters were written well and were easy to connect with. I do plan on reading the sequel. I want to find out more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captivating The concept of this series is amazing and well written. It did take me a few chapters to get involved with the story line, but in the end this is one on my favorite teen fiction-love stories I've read. Lauren Kate stole a piece of my heart with this series

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring Bought this title because of the cover and the fact that it was a best seller. Honestly one of the worst novels I have read. The protagonist is boring and very "Bella-esq". The story is flat. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cancel your plans! This was a really great book! Got it at Walmart, not realizing it was part of a series and ended up reading the entire weekend! Just finished the last novel and it was worth it! It's a beautiful love story with tons of suspense and fantasy stuff that actually makes sense! Enjoy... and cancel your plans. You won't leave til you're done the last novel :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fallen quick review I felt the books plot took to long to be revealed. Everything really became clear near the end of the book, which I didn't like. A great book will not allow me to stop reading, this one I had to put down sometimes because I was somewhat bored, and not totally loving the book. I thoroughly started enjoying it though when the plot started to become clear. I will continue to read the rest of the series.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Wow! Not what I expected. It was awful! Slow starting, at time didn't make sense and the ending was rushed! Reading the second book in the series, only because I had it already bought. Not going to bother with the rest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still on the fence I just finished reading this book, and I'm not sure if I loved it or hated it. While I was reading it, I felt terribly lost and confused the whole time. Then at the end you get some answers to your questions. But some are left unanswered, obviously to be uncovered in the next book. But what if I didnt want to read the next one? The development in the novel is minimal. There is a lot of short descriptions of what happens, almost like a play by play without the much needed descriptions for recreating the book in your mind while you read. As I say, I'm still on the fence on this series. I'll give it one more shot with the next book to see if the story line picks up...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Start o the Series This book is a really good book, so I'm not going to judge it based on how poorly the rest of the series was. "Fallen", by itself, is a great book for any teen who is going through a difficult time in their lives. It shows how even in the darkest of places, there is always some reason to keep fighting. But its not just that, yes it has a fairly slow start, but once you can read past it, the book comes to life. Now, onto the rest of the series. "Torment" and "Passion" are not some of my favourite books ever but I wouldn't called them bad books. This series is worth reading though because the finale book, "Rapture", stole my heart. I cry and dreamed with it. The first book is a nice easy read and if you can get past the some of the crappy slow parts in the middle, you should read it. If your looking for an amazing series that will always leave you wanting more, try the "Starcrossed" saga by Josephine Angelini or perhaps the "Divergent" trilogy. If you like angles, maybe the "Halo" trilogy is for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow beginning but great book Fallen starts a bit slow, and to be honest I also put it down and moved onto another book. But I was curious, so I continued to read it. And I am very glad I did so. It may start very slowly, but it begins to capture your imagination without you even knowing it. Soon, you are trapped in a world of mystery and excitement, and it is impossible to put the book down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow Start, Strong Finish Although the start of this book is a little bit slow keep with it, it eventually pulls you in and has you begging for more. Luce has something in her past that is eating away at her, something bad enough it has landed her in a reform school, but fate has to do whatever it takes to bring her to Daniel. This book is a great start to the series and keeps you guessing throughout the story wondering where it’s going to lead you and what Daniel is hiding. The connection between Daniel and Luce is wonderful a small part of you wants to cheer for Cam. The cliff hanger at the end had me moving on to book 2. This is a light read and perfect for a summer series for anyone looking for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't put it down! I know a lot of people say that the beginning is a little confusing, but i thought that the author did an excellent job describing a world that her mind brilliantly created. When I finished it, I had to automatically run to the store to buy the next one! And 3 books later, I can't wait for the 4th one to come out! Beware: you are about to enter a world of angels and unimaginable beauty, love and magic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mysterious! The book starts off a little boring, confusing you might even say, as you don't understand the 'Trevor' incident yet, or what 'shadows' are. But the book excels as romance and mystery take over. Love triangles, secret love, and hidden identities are discovered while reading, although parts will get a little bit dry throughout chapters, Lauren Kate always knows how to hook the reader at the end to keep them going. I do recommend this book! Althoug for people who can't handle dry sections, try a more interesting series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inevitable Romance As other reviewers have said, the beginning of the book is a bit slow, and the frustration from this quickly changes. As soon as you hit about the middle of the book, you won't be able to put it down (as with most books), but you really will love the story. It's jam-packed with chivalry, declarations of love, and spine-tingling suspense. I loved this book, and I can't wait to read the sequels. I recommend this to anyone looking for a book that's a little bit different than the cooke-cutter romances I've been reading these days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow start I found the beginning of the book boring. i wasn't excited about reading it and i had a hard time getting through chapters. Near the middle of the book and on the story really picked up and captivated my attention. I loved the ending. i thought the story was cute, but i think there could definitely be more romance and action going on between Danial and Luce. all in all an okayy read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good From the Start! The beginning seemed a bit slow, and leaves you wondering what is going to happen. As you read further into the book though, everything starts falling into place and I wasn't able to put the book down. Highly romantic, a bit of a nail-biter, and a good teen read. I definitely recommend this book!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I didn't really like it The story was pretty cliche in my opinion. And Luce seemed not only a little weird but a little too perfect. My friend read it and she also noticed a few errors in the plot line which I also noticed. I don't know if anyone else noticed them so I could maybe be ruining it for them... But When she kisses Daniel she says its her first kiss, and the one with TREVOR doesn't count... what about the one with Cam? That kinda turned me off... There were more 'errors' but I don't really want to explain them. Almost everything was predictable which didn't make it any more interesting. So yeah... I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I was told that this book was amazing. Sadly-I was disappointed. While I did love the idea of fallen angels.....Im not one for a romance overwhelming a book. I did not like that. Too much love not enough gore. I did like it though. it was fun to read-I'll say that. Still....not one of the better books I've read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book. Lame cover. I picked this book up recently and finished it in less than a day. I quickly went out and got the sequel "Torment" and read it just as quickly. The setting was really neat. Luce (17-years-old) gets sent to an old reform school equipped with video surveillance and a creepy commentary. Don't let the lame cover prevent you from reading this book. I don't know whats up with the cover...it couldn't get any worse. Downsides: 1) Lame Cover 2) If you hate when authors leave cliff-hangers that require you to purchase the sequels to find out what happens then this probably isn't the book for you. Lauren Kate is definitely a fan of leaving readers hanging. This book deals with "Fallen Angels" (which is a nice change from all the vampire books). It reminded me of "Hush, Hush" & "Crescendo" by Becca Fitzpatrick .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great. I was really dissapointed with this book. I really wanted to love it. The idea was good, and the cover was beautiful, but the characters felt flat to me. I knew exactly what would happen in the book after reading the prologue (which I seriously wish had been left out) and nothing at all interesting happened in the book for the first hundred something pages. Both the action and the romance in the novel picked up way too slowly, but when it did it was just alright.
