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. 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 Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce – he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce 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.
When Luce gets sent to a reform school after a tragic accident she is hoping for a fresh start. No longer considered the most dangerous of her classmate she tries to forget what has happened in her past and although after a typical disastrous first day she does settle and make a couple of friends. However she also has a strange interaction with a rather good looking male at the school and she can’t help feeling there is more to it.
Over time Luce starts to feel a strong connection towards him and with her new friend Penn starts to try and find out more about him. However she is also becoming a bit more than friends with other classmate Sam and things between the two boys become heated on several occasions. However the boys and quite a few of the other members of the school have a secret and after some searching Luce comes to learn of the bizarre world she is destined to be a part of. She is partly relieved of this fact as is gives some explanation to the shadows that plague her life but it is also about to threaten her life and change it forever.
Although I enjoy this book it has a very similar development and idea to Stephanie Meyers Twilight. It is about a strange girl at a new school that has a strange infatuation to a good looking boy. They experience an accident together where he saves her life and then continues to try and convince her she he is bad for her. However she soon works out his secret and it ends with a battle. It was also pointed out to me that if you have any knowledge of angels you may work out his secret very early on from Daniel’s name. However despite these things I still enjoy this book. It is not a difficult read,the characters are easy to like and the writing carries you easily through the story.
