Fluffy Review - Fallen by Lauren Kate

I picked up Fallen after reading great things about it on the Internet and I have to say I was not disappointed. Fallen is the story of Lucinda 'Luce' Price and what happens to her when she arrives at Sword and Cross reform school. I don't want to write any more about the story as I don't want to spoil it in anyway for you. I knew some things about the book before I picked it up because it seems to be that all descriptions are telling you too much. My one regret is not picking the book up when I first noticed it in store and reading it straight away with no prior knowledge.

Lauren Kate has done a wonderful job with this novel, it has just the right amount of everything. The descriptions are wonderful and you can easily visualise the locations and the characters. Luce isn't perfect and that's what makes her so easy to like. I have seen where people have said that she was stupid to feel the way she does for Daniel after their first encounter but you have to remember Luce is in high school and at that age a lot of girls will gloss over that first meeting and create a new image in their mind. I feel that as the series continues Luce's character will only get stronger.

When I was reading there was lots of things I was wondering about and questions I wanted answering and while for some of them I found the answers as I continued to read I still have lots waiting on answers and I'm sure I will be waiting till the end of the last book but that by far is not a bad thing. I am hooked and I can't wait to read Torment to find out more, I think this is going to be a favourite series from me and I definitely recommend it.

I give Fallen 5 out of 5 stars.


  1. I am glad you liked it! Fallen wasn't my favorite book ever, but I thought it was okay. I love the cover!

    Just a tip- You could put the Goodreads description at the beginning of your review to give your readers a better idea of what the book is about. That's what I do and I find it helpful. :)

  2. Thanks and yeah that is a good idea, do you think its better to do that than to try to sum up the book? I always worry that I will say too much.

    I am looking forward to reading Torment now though.
