Passion by Lauren Kate










Book 3 (Book 1: Fallen, Book 2: Torment)

Novel Summation:

Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . . Luce is certain that something-or someone-in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last. Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

My Thoughts:

This was a really interesting book. You know all those book series where the main couple have had previous lives together because their love is that special (kind of like the Immortal series by Alyson Noel). Well Luce and Daniel are just like. However, unlike those other books that only take a glimpse and those past lives this whole book goes through virtually every one of those past lives. This was really cool because we got to see how true the love is and how the characters were like in the past. The book picks up where it left off last time. Luce just went through an Announcer (a portal to the past) and she goes through each of her past lives one by one. Along the way she is accompanied by Bill a new character who acts as  a guide for Luce. Daniel spends most of the book trying to catch up to Luce because the slightest change that is made can rewrite the present for Luce and Daniel. Along the way he realizes that just like Luce there is something he must uncover within their pasts. Cam and the rest of the fallen angels don’t really do much. Their past selves appear throughout the book but little happens with them. The nephilim (children of the angels- Miles and Shelby) don’t do much either. They appear briefly trying to find Luce. At the beginning Miss Sophia (a member of the Elders whose goal is to restore the world back to before the angel’s Fall. They believe Luce should die) and some outcasts (rank of angels who sided with Lucifer but didn’t go into the underworld with him. They were refused entry back into heaven and Satan didn’t let them into the underworld and blinded them. The Outcasts believe that by capturing Luce they can get back into heaven) make an appearance but aren’t really involved in the book. A major plot twist occurs at the end of the book setting up an interesting and epic final book. I was a little confused with the fact that apparently Luce was suppose to go back in time this whole time. In was already written in the past that a future Luce and Daniel came to the past. I would recommend this book to all.

Future Books:
