Rapture: YA Book Review

Summary: The sky is dark with wings . . . .Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again. Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen. For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters. In the fight for Luce, who will win?

Ughh… Lauren Kate. I’m so done with you. I was so hopeful because the third book, Passion, was my favorite so far. It seemed like the series was going somewhere. I don’t care what anyone else says—the third book had the most to it. This one was just… stupid. There was a point where Luce, the main character, was tied up not doing anything for like a whole chapter. What? Why? Could you really not think of anything else to have your character do? LAUREN KATE, YOU’RE KILLING ME. *remembers the rest of the book* No, never mind. You did it. You killed me. Why is it that the secondary characters were better than the main ones? And yet you never hear their stories. The stories you want to hear, you don’t. The only thing I give Kate props for is that she has the guts to kill off characters. But of course they’re the characters I like. And why do they die? To protect Luce and Daniel, the two most undeserving people in the book. Real Talk Time With Jenna! J: “So, Daniel and Lucinda. What’s it like to have a love based on absolutely nothing except the fact that you’re both attractive?” D: “To be honest, if Heaven had mirrors I probably would have sooner fallen in love with myself. But it is really fun to treat Luce like she’s a two-year old child, so there’s that.” L: “Oh, Daniel, I love you so much! You’re the best!” Oh, I wish I was over-exagerating. I wish I never read this series. Also, why do the worst books get the best covers? This is by far one of my favorite covers ever. UNDESERVING.
