Book Summary: There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
I'd like to start out by saying that it's about damn time i sank my teeth into this dark and stunning first installment by Lauren Kate. It seems that just about everyone on planet Earth has flipped through these pages.. so i decided to take a look-sie for myself.
Kate does an exceptional job at grabbing it's readers by the throats and thrusting them into an eerie and mysterious romantic story. I haven't read a book with such vivid and beautiful details in quite some time and boy did i eat it up.
Luce Price and Daniel Grigori's love story is quite a unique one at that. Reincarnation. A boarding school for troubled youth. A creepy storyline with out of this world characters and surprising twists. Yum. And although there were some parts that frankly i could of done without, i'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for these two 'starcrossed lovers' in Torment- the second addition to the Fallen series.
