This book was just ok. It got better as it went. I think the sequel is promising.

Let me just say that if I could I would give more than 5 stars to this book. I loved it! I think that fans of Twightlight and the Morganville Vampires will LOVE it too...though there are no vampires just a brand new twist on YA love with the same edginess. Run, don't walk, to get your copy. 💜 ( )

Another excellent time filler -And that's not a bad thing-. Another very typical supernatural, young adult novel, however, unlike Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush Hush series, this book was definitely more subtle. I could still tell that there was something 'different' about the characters, but the change from Fitzpatrick's series was that I wasn't sure until the very end who was on which side. This made the book more exciting and enjoyable. I'm actually excited to read the next book in the series. ( )

I'm teetering. I'm on the edge of feeling that this book was just "okay" versus admitting that quite possibly, this book was just crap parading as a book. I feel deceived. I've lost a little faith in the YA writing community because of this book which actually held a very interesting concept but was executed quite terribly. The author progressed the story VERY slowly and I wanted to scream "get on with it" no less than 75,000 times. Her writing was juvenile (even for a YA book, come on!) and amateurish at best. I felt like her tone talked down to her audience. Give your reader some credit. Just because you pulled of the successful deception of getting this rag published doesn't mean your audience lacks intelligence. I mean how on earth did this book manage to pull a 3.88 average rating?! The more I write about this the angrier I get. I feel betrayed by the person who loaned me this book.

I spent a few hours getting through this book. Please give me those hours of my life back. It's the least you can do. ( )

Not the worst book i have ever read. Not the worst main character i have ever encountered. But i just didnt care for this book so much.... But it was a fast read. ( )

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.

Book description
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.
