Torment 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.

Bought it with my own Money!

This was not the first time I have picked the book up and tried to push through it, in fact the first time I did pick up Torment I found that I could not get even halfway through.

Perhaps I was in a different state of mind or I just had a hankering for something else, either way I finally was able to finish it this time around.

I have mixed feelings about the book sadly.

It still will remain on my bookshelf if not just for the cover alone, which is stunning. The Fallen series has absolutely beautiful cover art.

I did like that the character's had a lot of spunk, some of them were not afraid to say what they thought. The characters were very strong if not a bit repetitive in personalities which is normal given the way people actually are.

I was not a fan of Daniel, the over protectiveness and bossiness of the angel seriously tested my patience, been through it once and never again. So I completely understood Luce's frustration.

I did like the ending, I believe it was my favorite out of the entire book.

Favorite Charrie: Arriane, I always love the girls who kick butt.
Rating: 2.5 Stars!
