Torment by Lauren Kate










Book 2 (Book 1: Fallen)

Novel Summation:

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?

My Thoughts:

From what I remember about this book I enjoyed reading it. In this book we get introduced to a new set of characters each with their own backstory. These new set of characters are children of both fallen angels and humans. Luce discovers what the shadows that have been haunting her really are and she learns that she can use them to see her past lives. The more she learns about her past lives the more she wonders is being with Daniel worth it. Luce could be very frustrating and so could Daniel in this book because it doesn’t seem like they are connecting as a couple at all anymore. Daniel isn’t in the book much but he still plays a vital part in Luce’s world. New potential love interests may or not be there in the form of Miles. We learn a lot more about the war between the fallen angels. How the two sides of fallen angels aren’t necessarily split by white (good) or evil (black) but that it is more of a gray. This book was really good and interesting and I would recommend it.
