In this second book in the Fallen series, Luce is now in California hiding at a new school that is a vast improvement over the last. Daniel shows up now and then, mostly to fight with Luce who is more interested in Miles, one of the new students.
I have so many questions. If Luce and Daniel are a romance for the ages, why is she even looking at Miles? If the Announcers/Shadows are Luce's memories, why is she seeing what's happening to people after she's died in their lives? Why can't the Outcast tell Dawn from Luce if they know by their souls?
This story felt like a placeholder, something to make the series longer. Not that much really happens, and Luce doesn't learn any more about her past lives that would help her. Certainly, Daniel isn't helping her advance though I guess that's one of the secret rules of their romance.
Since I got all the books in the bundle, I'll keep plowing on, hoping it gets better, but I'm not seeing why this series is rated so well (at least so far). ( )

Another one that started off pretty decent...drug on a little towards the middle then by the time you get close to the end, you want to toss the book across the room because its took drawn out. But thats just me! ( )

A good follow up to the first book of the series. Leaves you on a cliffhanger, and I'm going to jump right into the next one. Again, pretty basic storyline at first, but there is still a lot of subtlety. Makes you question who Luce should trust, and who could betray her. ( )

I like these books because they are fast reads and the plot normally keeps me going, but Luce is whiny and needy. I hope that she comes to figure herself out in the next book. ( )
