At the beginning of the book, Luce reviews small snippets of her past - the reason that her parents had her moved to "Sword and Cross", a reform school for young adults. Upon arrival at the school, Luce meets some questionable students. Luce befriends Arriane, who turns out to be an angel just like Daniel, Gabbe, Cam, and Randy, Luce later becomes friends with Penn, a girl who does not belong at the school - but stays because of her father being buried at the school (There's a cemetery). Penn figures out what Luce is up to after developing a major crush on Daniel, but doesn't stop her. Penn helps her look through files and look for books on Daniel because something just didn't feel right to her.

After learning that Daniel is an angel and that pictures of Luce in the book written by him had the same facial features and qualities, she realised that she had died hundreds of times, and Daniel had been there each time when she "spontaneously combusted" and died. She had lived to be seventeen in every single lifetime, and had always died within a few weeks of meeting Daniel, But this time was different - she didn't die after a few weeks of Daniel avoiding her. However, eventually he started talking to her and ended up kissing her, resulting in him panicking and freaking out because she didn't turn into flames. However, this causes a war/battle over the cemetery with Daniel and Cam - becaause Cam happens to be a "fallen angel who moved to the other side". Daniel has one of the teachers, Miss Sophia, take Penn and Luce into hiding. However, Penn gets hurt, and instead of helping her, Miss Sophia ended up slitting her throat because she was a "burden" to carry. Luce pretty much loses it from there and impatiently waits for Daniel as Miss Sophia goes to kill her. Daniel arrives just in time to Luce and gets her off the school premesis as the book ends.

Fallen is the first book of the fallen series. It is about a girl named Luce and her love with a boy named Daniel. She meets Daniel at a reform school called sword and cross. Her parents sent her away because Luce is not like any ordinary girl. She sees shadows, dark things that hover around her. Later on in the book she discovers that the shadows are real and she isn't crazy. She also find out that they are really called announcers and you look into them to see the past. Along with this she finds out that most of her friends including Daniel are all fallen angles.

I rated this book 4 stars. It is very adventurous and a little romantic. Its kind of like a mystery in a way. Luce is the "narrator" and she knows nothing like the angles do. Throughout the book she discovers more about herself and her past and i think that is amazing. ( )

Many elements are not resolved, such as the cause of the fire and why angels are at this school. Still, fans of supernatural romance will be lining up for this book despite its flaws, and begging for a sequel.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385739133, Paperback)

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.

From the Hardcover edition.
