Books before food (and any sort of comfortable life).

Passion: YA Book Review

Summary: What if you find your soul mate…at the wrong time? Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way… Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime…going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel…and finally unlock the key to making their love last. Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames…forever.

This was by far my favorite Fallen novel, even though the cover didn’t fit with the previous books. (I actually REALLY hate the cover of this book. If it would have been the cover of the first novel, I wouldn’t have even considered picking it up, to be honest.) But anyways, this is the most interesting book so far. I love how Lauren Kate turned this paranormal romance almost into historical fiction. Luce has learned that not only can she see her past through the Shadows, but she can also visit it by pulling herself through a Shadow’s gateway. So that’s exactly what she does. Each time period she goes to is hundreds of years before the last, and she visits so many lands and experiences so many cultures. That’s really the main reason this was my favorite book. It’s just…amazing. And actually, if you think about it, it was kind of like a prequel to the first books because it answered a lot of the questions that probably a lot of readers had. It kind of filled in the back-story. The only hink I have about this book is that it’s the third and there’s still no foundation for Luce and Daniel’s love. Right now, it’s all lust. I really hope Kate doesn’t wait until the end of the next book to reveal why their connection is so strong. So check out this book series. It’s getting better and better.
