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.
I've been trying to come up with a unique way to talk about this book, other than just squeal, but, yeah, I'm not feeling the creativity today. That being said, I loved this book, and stayed up seriously late reading it. Even though I have to teach today, it was worth it! I've read some mixed reviews of this story, and yeah it does have a few Twilight kind of issues (so if you didn't like that book...), but I found myself completely sucked in and enjoying every minute of it. The only bad thing? The next one doesn't come out til this fall--boo!
Other cool thing? This was written in Winters, while the author went to UCD. Winters is all of 10 minutes from Davis, and I'm at UCD, too! Does anyone else think it's kinda creepy that two people are writing "angel" books within 15 miles of each other? It kinda makes me go "do-doo-do-dooo." But, yeah, too bad she's not still in the area to do a fun reading or something. Anyhow, I got this one from the library, but I've already decided that I must add it to my permanent collection, so I'll be heading to the bookstore later (and probably re-reading tonight).
