Review: Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate

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.

My Rating

My Thoughts:

     After the first sequel of this book, Fallen,  I expected a lot from this book, Fortunately, it met my my expectations, the remarkable thing is that the characters from the last book have nearly doubled in number, but you can still keep up with events. I will give a plus for Lauren Kate on this one!
     Luce is sent to another reform school, Shoreline, where she meets Nephilims (children of fallen angels and humans), who have some special powers. Luce learns her way through the reform school, and makes many new friends (like Shelby and Miles). Daniel and Luce's relationship seems to fall apart as Daniel hides more and more secrets from her. 
     Luce is determined to find out about the secrets. She uses the help of Shelby, one of the Nephilims to manipulate Announcers, the shadows she has been seeing since she was a kid. As she learns more about her past life, she feels that the more she digs through, the more her secrets she will know.
     When Luce goes home to Thanksgiving, she wasn't expecting a happy dinner with her parents, angel, demon, and Nephilim friends. And she was right, when the dinner ends, and her parents go out, an army of Outcasts awaits them on the front porch. As the fight begins, and the truce is broken, Luce decides to step into an Announcer's window, into the darkness, into the shadows, determined to find out everything about her past.


     The second book in the series, Fallen, has a quicker pace, a much more wonderful bunch of characters, and a more mysterious ending than the first book. It's such an eye-catching, bewildering masterpiece, that will leave you committed to read the third sequel, Passion...
