Fallen Kindle Edition
#1 New York Times bestseller
A USA Today bestseller
One of NPR.com's 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels

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.
"Sexy and fascinating and scary . . . I loved loved loved it!"--New York Times bestselling author P.C. Cast

I'm gonna give the second book a try but if not, I'm done with this series!
I was surprised by that because is usually the other way a round. So I bought the book to see if the commenter was right... Well nope. The book and the movie are equally awful.
Characters are killed easily. The teenage love triangle is boring and tiring and frankly absurd. I suppose that if you are 8 this might sound interesting story: two Boys fighting for your attention. People jelous of that attention and no need to study. Because frankly the school was the background but they never studied! Anyway... Not my thing.
Let me preface this by saying that I can read some pretty sappy/angsty teenagery stuff. I've read Twilight, it doesn't get more angsty and whiney than Twilight. And, I still could not finish this. The love triangle, and the incessant inner monologue about the boy who is only ever mean to her, but she obviously loves him, even though the other boy is nice to her and so cute. Blah Blah Blah...this is two days into her tenure at the new prison/boarding school. Yeah, it was all just too much for me. But, I'm sure my teenager self would've loved it.
Current day: Luce became a student at the Sword & Cross reform school. Obviously, there is a reason she is here. Still, she seems like a typical teenager, minus some issues she seems to have that aren’t explained. She does mention a lot of details about this darkness she experiences. This school is clearly for troubled teens. I’m still wondering what her story is and what type of paranormal she is.
There is a weird love triangle in this book as she goes back and forth between Cam and Daniel. They both show something you could call interest. Cam is more forward and swoony, but we don’t know the skeletons in his closet. Daniel is more mean and snide, but we do know they have a history.
This book is very slow-moving to eventually figure out the paranormal aspects. A tragic accident at school leaves us with more questions than answers and Luce once again under scrutiny. We do finally get answers. There is romance, but it is a very young adult.
Things actually ramp up finally, but of course, now it is so much action that it is hard to comprehend the answers. Luce must go away, and it seems there is a tentative truce in place for the ones on opposite sides of this war. You do finally discover what kinds of paranormals are in this book, and I have to say I was shocked and surprised.
However, the book was very long and drawn out, and I wasn’t as into the story as I had hoped to be, so I probably won’t be reading any more in this series. I also won’t reveal the paranormal mystery in the book to you. You’ll have to read it yourself. I would call this book a paranormal romance. There was so little romance in it, but it definitely classifies as paranormal fiction.
It’s an easy read and an interesting take on paranormal young adult romance

I'm not sure the movie did it a full justice but with anything made into a movie you'll never get the feel of knowing the characters as you do using your imagination (tho I did love the movie❤️)
I hope there are more to follow! Thank you so much to the author, Lauren Kate for letting me dream of angels all the greatest loves ever written 👏👏👏
Brought this after watching the movie, which I enjoyed alot. The book is a little more different to the movie than I thought but still really good.
I loved every second of it and would highly recommend
Fallen is the tale of Luce, who, is sent to the Sword & Cross school after an incident resulting in the death of a boy called Trevor. She’s struggled most of her life because she sees ‘shadows’ that are only visible to her and their visits are starting to happen more often than she’d like. On arriving at the boarding school, where most of the students are there as a result of breaking the law, she sees Daniel. Immediately she feels a connection with him, although he does everything possible to ignore and push her away from him. In spite of his actions she finds herself thinking about him more and more and becomes slightly obsessed by him.
As she settles in to life at Sword & Cross she gains the attention of a boy called Cam, who seems very interested in her. She also makes a ‘kind of’ enemy in Molly who picks a fight with her on her first day by dumping a plate of meat loaf on her head in the cafeteria. But then she ends up making friends with Arriane, Penn and eventually Gabbe.
The story centres around Luce’s relationship with Daniel and her starting to realise just who he is and what they mean to each other. At first I was a little concerned about how obsessed Luce became over Daniel and I thought to myself that it was just a little too much – I mean she was bordering on stalker behaviour!! However, once their relationship was fully explained I could forgive the obsession as it made perfect sense. I felt a little sorry for Luce who had no idea what was happening to her when most people around her knew what was going on while trying to keep her safe. But despite their best efforts she kept pushing to find out more and more until the end result was inevitable. By the end I did think that it was an amazing coincidence that so many people at this school were involved and had been for many years!!
The one person not involved in the whole situation who also helped Luce in her ‘research’ about Daniel, was Penn. I loved Penn and thought that she was a great ally for Luce who helped her to settle into the school and had no agenda like most people. She was almost like an anchor for Luce – grounded in reality and not involved in the whole supernatural thing that seemed to be happening throughout most of the story. The other character that I loved was Arriane – I just loved that she was so eccentric and the complete opposite to Penn. As the story progresses you see that both Penn and Arriane really care about Luce and just want to help her.
As it should, being the first book in a series, Fallen opens up so many opportunities to carry on the story leaving many questions unanswered and giving you just enough information to help you understand how people fit together and what the tone of the series is likely to be. In this case it’s how two people can be together when their relationship is ultimately doomed to fail unless they can work together to reverse whatever has befallen them to keep them apart. Is their love strong enough to break whatever has cursed them? Only time will tell.
