A restless Luce isn't sure what she needs to be protected from, and is eager to explore the new paranormal world that has been set upon her. When the true purpose of the shadows, or "Announcers" is revealed to her, she becomes hungry to learn the truth about her past lives.
Luce and Daniel find themselves at odds, while Luce battles against her feelings for a boy she meets at Shoreline. Soon, powerful enemies surface, rogue angels known as Outcasts who are determined to seize Luce and use her as their entryway back into Heaven. Luce and Daniel must fight even harder for their love as the stakes are upped and the true price of Luce comes to light. Passion In Passion, Luce travels backward through time to discover the secrets of her past. With the help of an insidious gargoyle companion, she explores the lives of many of her past selves: Ix Cuat, Princess Lys, Lucia, Lu Xin and more, hoping to uncover the reason for her and Daniel's curse, and to break it.
Daniel is frantically searching for Luce through time, and in reliving his past pain, begins to uncover a sinister plot conjured by Heaven's greatest adversary. Soon, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, and it is up to Luce and Daniel, plus their friends, to stop destruction and save the world. Rapture In Rapture, Luce goes on a quest with Daniel and the others began to search for different artifacts to stop Lucifer from carrying out his plans to reset the past.
Throughout this journey they are faced with many trials involving the Outcasts which soon become allies on their quest. It is later revealed that Lucinda was the third archangel, next to Gabbe. She then finds out that her first lover was actually Lucifer and that he still feels a grudge for his lost love.
Lucinda faces Lucifer to try to change his mind to stop the fall erasing their past. This argument caused the throne to summon all the present fallen angels at Heaven for a final Roll call after a millennia of their punishment. In front of the Throne, Daniel and Lucinda were asked again to choose a side Heaven or Hell and their answer was the same as before, they choose their love above all.
As nothing could be done, that even in the curse they will find each other somehow, they were finally granted a second chance for their love. But it came with a price, by losing all of their memories, all of their angelic natures and forbidding their old friends from seeking them out, they will be reborn as mortals.
At this Luce was delighted finally they both were going to be together for long but afraid of possibility of not meeting Daniel again in next lifetime. Daniel assured her that he will find Luce as he always does no matter what and nothing can stop him from doing so. They both agreed, bid their goodbyes to their friends and kissing each other one last goodbye until they meet again.
In the end, Arriane, Rolland, Miles and Shelby now adults seek Luce and Daniel from afar as they meet each other once again and fell in love for the first and the last time. Lucinda does not make an appearance in the novel, but she is mentioned various times. Past Her first love When The Throne left Heaven for creating the Moon and the Sun, the place grew very lonely as the angels' task was to adore The Throne and He was not present, they felt as if they were useless.
Rumors were that soon the human beings, a new race, will replace the angels. He kissed her and taught her how to love. Soon she left her silver seat for him. Then Lucifer asked Lucinda to say she adores him. She refused and replied that adoration is only for God, but Lucifer didn't gave up. He made Lucinda sing this song until she was in love with him.
He convinced her that together they would be the greatest above all. She feared that the Throne might hate her after that, she feared what would the other angels think of this. Lucifer's love with his pride was consuming her to nothingness. Meeting Daniel Once Lucinda was weeping in the Meadow, an angel's shadow hovered over. She screamed to leave her alone. When she raised her head, she realized that Daniel the sixth angel to the line in throne was there.
She asked why has he come to her, he replied because he had been watching her, this was because Lucinda was the first angel to cry, he asked what is happening to her. For a long time she searched for words and replied, "I feel like I am losing my light. Luce runs to the bathroom, crying. There, she meets Penn, the daughter of the school's deceased groundskeeper who explains that she chooses to stay at the school because she has nowhere else to go. Penn befriends Luce, and helps clean the meatloaf out of Luce's hair.
The two instantly bond, and it is revealed that Penn can access anybody's personal records held by the school, telling Luce that she is a " As Luce wanders through the maze-like library, she begins to see the return of "The Shadows," paranormal, ink-like smudges that Luce has been seeing since childhood.
She then sees Daniel sitting by a window with a sketchbook and approaches him. Daniel is rude to her again, and they accidentally touch, causing a static shock. Both look at each other before Daniel quickly leaves. The next day, Luce is late for her detention at the cemetery, annoying the rest of the group which consists of Arriane, Molly, Roland, and—much to Luce's surprise—Daniel.
The group members are instructed to pair off and clean the cemetery statues. Luce and Arriane start to clean a statue of an "avenging angel," but Arriane runs off. Molly, after catching Luce staring at Daniel, warns her to stay away from him.
Daniel then approaches Luce after "hearing" his name and asks Luce what Molly said. Then the statue breaks and starts falling towards them. Daniel saves Luce from the falling statue, and makes a swift exit. Later, Luce is invited to Cam's party, which he does loudly in front of Daniel, signalling some sort of rivalry between the two. Before the party, the students of Sword and Cross are encouraged to watch a film as part of a social practice. Here, Luce encounters another Shadow, which she manages to "pinch" out of her pocket.
This scares and also excites Luce, as she has never physically interacted with the Shadows before.
At the party, Cam greets Luce warmly. Luce begins to develops a crush on Cam, but this is hindered by her constant feeling of an unusual connection with Daniel. Later, Luce overhears Daniel and Gabbe suggestively whispering to each other outside, leading Luce to believe that they are in a relationship and making her jealous. The next day, Luce is forced to attend a fitness exam in the gymnasium, which is actually situated in an old church on the school grounds.
After Luce loses a swimming race, she sees Daniel in one of the gym rooms, but is aggressively pushed by one of the Shadows before she can approach him. This terrifies Luce, but she eventually goes to Daniel. They awkwardly converse, and Luce tells Daniel that she swears that she knows him from somewhere; Daniel tells her coldly that she does not. Afterwards, Luce and Cam have a picnic in the cemetery. Cam is about to kiss Luce as Gabbe interrupts, telling Luce she's late for a class.
This fuels Luce's hatred towards Gabbe. In the library, Luce is given an assignment to trace her family tree, but searches for Daniel's instead of her own.
Penn later tells Luce that she has noticed her doing this, and offers Luce a look at his personal records. She accepts, and discovers that Daniel was sent to Sword and Cross for jaywalking and petty vandalism. On Luce's first Saturday at Sword and Cross, she is hit in the head by a soccer ball. Daniel seems concerned, and takes Luce to cool down outside. Luce confronts Daniel about Gabbe, to which he confirms that he is not in a relationship with Gabbe. This simultaneously relieves and embarrasses Luce for being so upfront about the situation.
Daniel takes Luce to a hidden-away lake area, where they both swim together before resting on a nearby rock. Here, Daniel warns Luce that he cannot get involved with her romantically as he has been previously "burned" by somebody else. He leaves Luce at the rock, and Luce is confused when she thinks she sees a pair of faint wings on Daniel's back as he runs off. Back in the library, Luce bonds with Miss Sophia.
During one of her classes on ancient angelic myths, Molly taunts Luce, and makes a connection between the name "Lucifer" and "Luce", angering Luce. At the end of the lesson, Daniel asks Luce if she found the lesson interesting, as the stories have always been in his family. Luce tells Daniel that she is surprised he had a family, which Daniel is angered by, scolding her of presuming things about him. On Daniel's private records, it had claimed that Daniel had spent most of his life in an orphanage.
Penn later discovers a book in the library called The Watchers written "D. Cam also gives Luce a necklace, which makes her question herself further as to whom she is drawn to more. In the library, a fire breaks out after Luce witnesses more Shadows. With her in library is Todd, who flees with Luce.
Unable to make it out of the smoke, Luce experiences an apparent out-of-body experience , where she can feel herself literally flying out of the smoke and into fresh air.

Another Shadow attacks her and Todd, and Luce blacks out. Luce wakes up in the hospital the next day, and is pampered by Gabbe, Penn, and Arriane. Gabbe then tells Luce that it was Daniel that carried her out of the fire, but Todd was killed after breaking his neck trying to escape.
Luce spots Daniel waiting outside her room with a worried face, some peonies, and mouths, "I'm sorry," to her. Anyway, Fallen is the best book I have ever read. But some parts get boring But if you give it a chance you can't stop reading it!!! I feel so connected to the characters and I can not wait until Rapture comes out. I don't believe Cam really liked Luce but maybe he was trying to just hurt Daniel.
Who ever said that has some problems. Such a unique series, I'm in love with it! E this book. I've only read Fallen so far but I'm about to read it again because I want to read the others.
I love the pace and everything she discribes. I think it's easily one of the best books written in this generation. And I cannot wait for Rapture! I don't see how it's anything like Twilight.
I absolutely despise Twilight! All the books were amazing so far but Fallen is my all over favorite Lili from Australia Pretty awful. Plot was quite cliched with bland, generic characters.
See a Problem?
The only thing good about if was the cover, I am sorry to say. The instant connection thing was too much. I mean sure they were supposed to be past lovers but Kate wrote it in such a way that I couldn't feel for the characters, and I certainly didn't understand how they felt. Their emotions just didn't resonate with me and i'm hardly a cold fish since i'm prone to crying whilst reading books.
Not enough showing, and too much of telling. The premise seemed great but the book is lacking in fluid execution. I really adore Ms.
Lauren Kate for a job well done. I think it is a great idea if they make this great book into a movie.
Because for the past years, I've been disappointed with the books I like that were turned into movies. I don't know what made their chosen actor to be in a certain role! That sucks, seriously. So please BEST luck to all!! Adored it, I could not wait for the next one and after reading all 3 Fallen, Torment and Passion. I love reading fantasy stories and this series is one of the best yet, I can't wait to see what is in store for Luce and Daniel!
Although the introduction was long, but in the middle of the story I began to like it. Fallen is waaay better!
You got punked! I finished it in two days. It's my favorite book of all time and way better than Twilight. So all you people out there who hate it, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!!! I Kaela from Illinois Absolutely love these books they are amazing! I am getting ready to read Passion! I love love love theses books please please please don't ever stop writing these! Great books anyone who doesn't like them is crazy!!!
It wasn't about stupid vampires or werewolves! It was about fallen angels. Yes, it took a long time to actually figure this out, but if you people don't like long stories then I guess that this book isn't for you.
If you do like a story that has a totally unique topic, then this book is for you. I mean there are millions of vampire books out there like Twilight, Cirque du Freak, and the Vampire Diaries but there are hardly any about fallen angels!
Some of you say "well the cover looked promising, but i hated it" well you shouldn't download a book because of the cover! You CAN'T judge a book by its cover!
You have to read the summary! I think that he's very depressed and sad but getting on with his life as he does wanna be with Luce but it could destroy her and he would lose her again. She is a tiny bit annoying, but she's more annoying in Torment, because she's so stubborn and very "I want to know it all", and she doesn't listen to anybody when they tell her to do something for her safety!!
But overall it is very good, I have to say when I started reading it I would never had expected him to be an angel and it to turn out like it did but I did know they would ending up loving each other.
But I still wonder Does Cam really like Luce or was it all an act? One suggestion: Don't let Disney make the movie. But the book was awesome! Anyone who thinks other wise is probably a boring person, in my opinion. It's basically all my fantasies put together in one amazing book. I love it! But I don't think that it was like Twilight at all.Rating details. He is very secretive about Luce's past but it's mainly to do with the fact that he's scared that if she learns of it too quickly, she will die.
I really adore Ms. Daniel is less of a Dalek, but he's still no Doctor. Daniel then approaches Luce after "hearing" his name and asks Luce what Molly said. Luce and Daniel find themselves at odds, while Luce battles against her feelings for a boy she meets at Shoreline. Luce is still crying. Fallen Latvian: Not just pages of stalking! At the same time, Cam makes more advances on her, suddenly making Luce feel uncomfortable in his presence and an intuition awakens within her telling her to stay away from the sly and cunning Cam.
