I had been eagerly awaiting this final book in the Fallen series and it did not disappoint me because it was full of everything I have come to expect from this fantastic series - romance, action, complications and so many difficult decisions!
I quickly fell back in to the story and couldn't put it down, this book now joins the many other books in my 'one-day read' list.
Cam has always been one of my favourite characters in this series and that didn't change this time, he still had that confident charm that I love so much and part of me has always hoped that he might become something more to Luce.
As I was reading through this book there was a real feeling of urgency from everyone, complicated angel politics led to an exciting and tense race against time which had me on the edge of my seat.
Dee was an interesting character, I wasn't sure what to make of her but when her purpose was revealed I was actually quite surprised that I hadn't seen it coming.
Being the last book in the series I knew it would be dramatic but I wasn't prepared for some of the sad moments that occurred during the battle to save history, I didn't expect to find myself crying whilst reading this book but there were a couple of things that really pulled at my heart-strings.
It was good to finally get an explanation for everything and it wasn't anything I had predicted either which was refreshing.
The epilogue was brilliant but still held a touch of sadness for me, the only negative thing I would say is that I would have liked more of it!
An action-packed, emotional read that finished off the series beautifully. by Kate Verrierunder review
I expected more of it
"Tell them it's happening. That an endgame has been initiated"
First of all I want to say the most positive thing about this book. The Cover. I abso-freakin'-lutely love the covers of the fallen series' books! Their covers, together with the interesting plot of the first book, lured me into reading this series. And to be honest, I'm glad it's done...
Luce and Daniel's romance is weird, and I don't like it. It's so enormously cheesy! Daniel's love is 'everlasting' and Luce's love is destroying her. Literally! But their romance is the most important thing in the universe. The difference between good and bad. One tiny decision, and it could ruin everything.
There was some action in this book, which I kinda liked, but most of it ended with Luce and Daniel kissing because they didn't lose each other and whatever. But I guess some people like that stuff. Not me, I'm not that kind of girl...
The struggle between good and evil is a commonly written about subject. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. With the fallen series, I'm not sure whether I like it or not. I love the whole fallen angel thing, since they are such mysterious creatures, and their struggle between good and evil is fascinating, but still, that the entire series is centered around a tragic romance is not what I was looking for.
Since this was the conclusion to the Fallen series, I was expecting answers to all my questions. And I had a lot of them! Most of them were about Cam, Arianne and Roland, my 3 favorite characters from this series. But I didn't get my answers. And that's what dissatisfied me a lot about this book. I was expecting more.
Again, the cheesy romance was my main problem. Here's a short quote that states the whole problem:
"All he knew was that being seperated from Lucinda was not a punishment that he could endure. They had to be together."
Altogether I will give this book 2 stars. A book I would recommend only to the fallen fandom and other people who have read and liked the other installments in this series. by Margot E
