Hell on earth.

That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.

It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts - immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something - something dangerous.

What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series...where love never dies.

I have been super busy this past week so this book took longer for me to read than it should have.
Obviously i don't want to say too much about it but i can definitely say i did not enjoy it as much as the first.
It wasn't all bad to the point where i didn't want to read it but not a whole lot happened. There was a thing at the end and that was about it. The rest was kind of just a filler.
They also created  a NEW love triangle.. gah why? As if one in a series isn't bad enough, they create a new one. Hope that's not a spoiler but that just frustrated me a bit especially when you know that its pointless anyway, i wanted to see more of the actual love story or learn more about the angels but we didn't really get that.
I wouldn't say not to read it and I'm sure its all necessary to go on to the next book but it was somewhat of a disappointment.
Hopefully the next book will make up for it.
Oh and i didn't dig this cover like i did the first.

Two stars
