The Peculiar Pig eR s tragic demise as uickly as brain dead Luce just because heart throb Daniel steps onto the scene she was sorely mistaken Way to totally ignore the fact that your main character caused someone to burst into flames Lauren might ve been a good idea to tie up loosends with that unfortunate vent instead of conveniently dropping it out of the plot altogether FAIL 12So all in all another utterly confusing masterpiece Maybe it s just me but there is precious little that makes sense in this series If you have read these books and have figured out what the heck is going on please let me know I would greatly appreciate it Otherwise I m still ntertained AND this book was despite The Mermaids Shoes everything still better than the first two Sorry that s all I ve got LIKE THIS REVIEW Seexcessive ranting for Rapture the finale to the Fallen series DLea LC s Adventures in Libraryland This review can also be found on my blog Cait s Corner Shhhh Do you hear that It s the horrible screams of your money doomed to spend the rest of their lives with the shame of having been used to purchase this book Review Below Ooooo the cover is out It s different Ok this is definitely sounding like a preuel type book guys It might be the third in the series but it goes backwards and covers 5000 yearsBut perhaps it covers those years as she travels so it is them looking back rather than a true preuel So a hybrid preuelREVIEW TIMEFinished Passion in about 4 hours so a nice uick readThree and a half starsNot to sure how to really review this book as it was so very different to the previous two and as such had different accomplishments and faults The overall story fills in the missing aspects from the first two books and helps to fill in the back story from both Fallen and Torment which is something that needed to be done The origin of the curse is also fleshed out and Untameable Rogue (Bennett explained so that the readers now have an understanding of why and how it started It was also important to figure out how and why all the past incarnations of Luce spontaneously combusted But it needs to be pointed out that this book can be so complex and confusing The good points were that Luce finally got to see what happened in her past and how it affected both Daniel and herself She also needed to grow up a little bit and I think travelling with Bill made her do soven if he was a little obvious But taking Luce away from her friends probably gave her the time to contemplate things without their sometimes overbearing interference and that shows Seeing her past selves also allowed her to live parts of their lives but she kinda stole bits also Also seeing the different personalities was an The McKettrick Way (McKettricks, eye opener kinda assumed she would be the same in all previous lives Apparently not Plus it would seem that we did not get to see their original meeting But then there was something different about the Chinese Daniel or was he just unguarded than the later versionsHowever this book also has its flaws The main one that bugged me through out the whole story was that Daniel forgot all of his pastncounters with himself It was so convenient and really just annoyed me as it seemed important in this book that he talk to his past self Also the lack of the other characters definitely detracted from the story as they give the readers a break from Luce and Daniel But they were all there at the Midsummer Masque end but why did Cam hug Luce and Daniel Bit strange and would have loved of a back story on Cam but the little bit that was there was goodBill Way too obvious and way too annoying The final chapter definitely sets things clearly in motion for the book RaptureAny who good book good story and very much looking forward to the last instalment SpoilersHere is the short review Here is the long reviewAnd the award for The Worst Couple to Have Ever Been Written In the History of Mankind No Seriously What the Hell Were You Thinking goes to Lucinda Price and Daniel Grigori Goodvening I am here with Lucinda Price and Daniel Grigori the winners of the award for The Worst Couple to Have Ever Been Written In the History of Mankind No Seriously What the Hell Were You Thinking Lucinda how does that make you feelLucinda They just don t understand our love for Maybe This Time (Belonging each otherDidn t you just go through all different periods of time because you didn t understand your love for DanielLucinda YesWhat did you learn during your journey What did you seeLucinda I stalked my former self and former Daniel I watchedndless make out sessions and got jealous of my former self for making out with former Daniel I also watched myself die over and over again For love Daniel would ventually find me again He always does because he loves me

Passion Fallen 3 Lauren KateAt the opening of the novel Luce is running blindly through time using Announcers as portals to her past lives Luce is cursed to die Memoirs of a Millionaires Mistress

Phoenix eternity falling in love with her again and again invery lifetime As Luce sprints blindly through time she meets a small gargoyle named Bill who claims to have all the answers Luce needs if she will let him travel with her Although Luce is skeptical she decides to partner with Bill in the hopes that he will speed her uest along Meanwhile Daniel is also traveling through time trying to find Luce He knows that what Luce is doing is xtremely dangerous If she makes one false move she could alter history forever potentially killing herself for good But Daniel is not the only one in search of Luce many of the other fallen angels and Cam a demon race through time trying to track her down Although their motives aren t ntirely clear it is understood that if they find Luce before Daniel does it could have grave conseuences 2015 I ll love you with all my heart in Sid and Sam every life throughvery death I will not be bound by anything but my love for you Passion follows after Luce stepped into the Announcer She wants to pursue her past and what she gets from it will lead her to the Screwball end game this time I didnjoy this book when I read the first half it s full of adventues heart wreching moments and historical settings Lauren Kate successfully delievered the story in Passion she not only tried to present their undying love but also got us through the most desperate time when D Three books Count them Three And yet in all those many many MANY pages there is still no foundation for Daniel and Luce s love None Not one Oh unless you consider his chiseled nose his violet yes his firm chest his rippling abs or his whatever to be a basis for it This isn t love It s lust Lust not pure beautiful ternal love that we re supposed to believe in but lust One of the seven deadly no wonder these two were cursed for it We ve traveled back to the first place when the curse was placed in the first place and I still don t understand it Luce was in heaven but she wasn t an angel or he was in love with her soul What in tha name of heavenhellwherever iswas Luce Come the heck on Luce is truly too stupid to The Outlaw Jesse James ever be a heroine Really listen to this She leaps into these Announcers without actually knowing where she llnd up but it doesn t really matter because she doesn t stay in any of these long agos long Up All Night enough for them to actually be interesting orngage you in the story But she does lust after Daniel in The Spiral Dance every single one so that s consistent I guess other than that she s jealous of herself when her other self gets up close and personal with Daniel She is supposedly trying to find out what s between them and if it s real but let me say it again there never is anything to their relationship other than they loveach other because they love The Erotic Mind each other because they loveach other because they love Dancing at Midnight (The Splendid Trilogy, each other Okay moving on Then she comes across a gargoyle and he tells her what to do and so she does it because she is the most stupid 40 AP studentver In her near past in this lifetime just a few weeks ago she was betrayed by someone she trusted actually several people she trusted but has she learned anything from this Oh heck no Why should she actually get any smarter Or It Hurts When I Poop! a Story for Children Who Are Scared to Use the Potty even stop and think Just stop and think once I could actually give this book one whole star if she had stopped to thinkven one time But nopeShe Here With Me (Together even gets a huge hint about this creature Pg 348 Is it Daniel she asked He d be able to see you wouldn t he And there s some reason you don t want him to know that you re helping me And he answers that his purposes are his own and not all about her But does this make her say it with me stop and think Why would she She s only been told that her meager little self is somehow linked to the fate of thentire world no I m wrong it s heaven and Double Deception (Code Name: Danger earth and hell as well I guess but can she spare one single solitary minute to use her brain Pg 385 he finally tells her who he is She never figures it outSo back to the sort of plot Guess who the gargoyle is you ll never guess really it s such a huge shock I was surprised I was stunned I was floored I was flabbergasted Yeah um I was clued in on page 82 when he first showed up and didn t doubt for one minute that I was wrong in my assumption I wasn tLet s think about this for just a second Let s think about this for just one second longer than Luce thought about it Angels Fallen angels He never shows up when any of the other angels are around Still need a hint The great deceiver Yeah he s in this book Big whoop So he tries to get her to give up her soul because oh who knows It would change something in some way that would make something different I suppose Anyway what kind of total idiot would think parting from your soul your immortal soul could possibly make anything better And this is on the word of this skeevy gargoyle view spoilerwho is the devil hide spoiler Now this is what I call torture I have literally never suffered when reading a book like I suffered when reading Passion This book really was a pain to read I wanted to punch something so badly that Inded up taking Luce stepped into the Announcer leaving her Daniel behind trying to understand verything and to destroy the curse From Moscow to Milan she travelled alone had no idea of Daniel following her Daniel was always a step late In Moscow Luce found out that all the angels Cam Gabbe Arriane Roland and Molly were also there They had good knowledge of her fearful fateIn Helston England 1854 she met Bill a tiny gargoyle inside her announcer "Bill Helped Her Adjusted "helped her adjusted with the current situation with outfits and bits of information But Bill hid himself when the angel was around One thing that was confusing Roland seemed to sense Bill while Arriane did not Luce continued with her journey to Tahiti and Prusia In Prusia she witnessed Daniel s pain Daniel ignored the whole world and fell to sleep after Luce s deathIn Lhasa Tibet Luce *was devastated watching daniel tried to kill himself *devastated watching Daniel tried to kill himself Luce s demise It was the worst xperience for Daniel to watch Luce met her demise by only talking to him Daniel s agony made him jumped from a cliff broke all his bones and stayed motionless until Gabbe found him made him vowed to never lose hope to never destroy himself againDaniel was arrested in Paris France for killing Luce Louis XV future mistress He did not want to free himself but stayed in misery at The Bastile waiting for a new Luce to arise In England playing Anne Boleyn Luce burnt the Globe the famous theatre Luce Also realised that Daniel s curse has been worse than herAfter losing Luce in so many places Daniel stepped into Central Greenland year 1100 At that time he felt suffocated and was so weaken by his broken heart Both sides of angels were pleading him to join them Gabbe was for heaven and Roland for Hell He was so devastated and his future self had come to save him to reaffirm his choice to choose Lucinda over verything In Chich n ITZ Luce found out that she will always know Daniel know his soul although Daniel s appearance was different from his usual self It never matters since their love will find ach other regardless their physical forms Luce witnessed Daniel true self for the first time Daniel arrived in Bethlehem Israel where Cam had his heart broken by Lilith That was when Cam crossed to Hell side Daniel befriended Miles and Shelby there when he realised that regardless their recklessly idiotic way Miles and Shelby had only tried to help In his announcer Daniel met Scale the angel who sides Heaven Scale showed Daniel the place where Luce stepped out Luce was in Memphis Egypt 3100 BC She was Layla who fell in love with Daniel the army commander her princess fianc Bill told her to kill her soul with a starshot to free Daniel from his misery for their cursed fate The starshot will kill her immortal soul and will return her into her old self But Daniel s love has prevented her from doing so Daniel s love made her believed that one day they would be freed from the curse Bill was furious with that and was changed into something bigger His true self was Lucifer and he was so furious of Luce s failureDaniel came to the Heaven Gate where the angels were gathering where the roll call was conducted That was a very important time when the angels had to choose their side Heaven or Hell with Lucifer when Daniel old self had chosen Lucinda He was punished for that Lucinda his love will never meet her adolescence will die again and again Daniel then begged for clemency saying that some millenni SOME SPOILERSSigh OK ready for this So as you may know the Fallen series is definitely not one of my favorites but I am inexplicably drawn to them like a moth to a fl. Ve třetím dílu série Andělé se dál odvíjí příběh Luce a Daniela Luce s jistotou cítí že někde v jejích minulých životech se skrývá něco – nebo ,
