Torment starts off right where Fallen leave off. I found this installment in the series a bit slower than the first. I still really enjoyed it but it was lacking s bit of the action from the first. I'm thinking the reason why is because Lauren was building on the romance part in this book. The title given to this book is perfect because I feel that the characters were going thru it the whole time. There is something about this series I'm that hasn't completely won me over, I'm waiting for that moment where I just fall head over heels in love with it. This book I did understand better the Angels and the terms.

Luce and Daniel have a Romeo and Juliet of a love story that has spanned thru a lifetime and more, since Luce keeps dying in past lives and gets reincarnated and again Daniel and her find each other for the cycle to happen again. Except this time around she hasn't dies, Not yet at least. So Daniel and many others are doing everything they can to protect her, so they send her to a Nephilim school that is protected. Luce begins a new journey there and meets new friends and figures out new things she can do, but the whole time she keeps wondering why her. I will read the next book in the series Passion because I do like the series and I'm curious as to Luce's future.

Summary: 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.

  1. Great review - I think I agree that the first one had more pace and action. Definitely looking forward to Passion, though!
