Overview

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. . . .

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In the latest episode in Lauren Kate's fast-breaking Fallen series, Lucinda "Luce" Price and fallen angel/significant other Daniel Grigori slip into past lives and present dangers. Passion is the penultimate novel in this paranormal romance series. (P.S. Expect Fallen films: Disney has already snatched up film rights to all four series books.)

Children's Literature - Kirsten Shaw
After witnessing the battle between the Outcasts and the Angels, and seeing the destruction that ensues, Luce begins to question her love for Daniel and uses her power of wielding the Announcers to go back in time and witness first hand how each of her past lives ended. When she begins her quest she believes that she has no choice in her love for Daniel, that it is pre-destined; but as she watches each of her past lives unfold she realizes that the love between them is unequivocally true. With the help of the gargoyle Bill, whom she runs into in one of the Announcers, she continues to travel through time hoping to find a way to break the curse that inevitably keeps Daniel apart from her. The third book in the "Fallen" series, Kate continues to hook readers with the eternal romance between Luce and Daniel. Even readers not familiar with the previous two books will understand the love that Luce and Daniel share. Kate builds anticipation for the final installment, Rapture, as the plot surges toward the final clash between Lucifer and the fallen angels. Reviewer: Kirsten Shaw

Read an Excerpt

Lucinda!

The voices reached her in the murky darkness.

Come back! Wait!

She ignored them, pressing further. Echoes of her name bounced off the shadowy walls of the Announ cer, sending licks of heat rippling across her skin. Was that Daniel's voice or Cam's? Arriane's or Gabbe's? Was it Roland pleading that she come back now, or was that Miles?

The calls grew harder to discern, until Luce couldn't tell them apart at all: good or evil. Enemy or friend. They should have been easier to separate, but nothing was easy anymore. Everything that had once been black and white now blended into gray.

Of course, both sides agreed on one thing: Everyone wanted to pull her out of the Announcer. For her protec­tion, they would claim.

No, thanks.

Not now.

Not after they'd wrecked her parents' backyard, made it into another one of their dusty battlefields. She couldn't think about her parents' faces without wanting to turn back--not like she'd even know how to turn back inside an Announcer, anyway. Besides, it was too late. Cam had tried to kill her. Or what he thought was her. And Miles had saved her, but even that wasn't sim­ple. He'd only been able to throw her reflection because he cared about her too much.

And Daniel? Did he care enough? She couldn't tell.

In the end, when the Outcast had approached her, Daniel and the others had stared at Luce like she was the one who owed them something.

You are our entrance into Heaven,
the Outcast had told her. The price. What had that meant? Until a couple of weeks ago she hadn't even known the Outcasts existed. And yet, they wanted something from her--badly enough to battle Daniel for it. It must have had to do with the curse, the one that kept Luce reincarnated lifetime after lifetime. But what did they think Luce could do?

Was the answer buried somewhere here?

Her stomach lurched as she tumbled senselessly through the cold shadow, deep inside the chasm of the dark Announcer.

Luce--

The voices began to fade and grow dimmer. Soon they were barely whispers. Almost like they had given up. Until--

They started to grow louder again. Louder and clearer.

Luce--


No.
She clamped her eyes shut to try to block them out.

Lucinda--


Lucy--


Lucia--


Luschka--

She was cold and she was tired and she didn't want to hear them. For once, she wanted to be left alone.

Luschka! Luschka! Luschka!

Her feet hit something with a thwump.

Something very, very cold.

She was standing on solid ground. She knew she wasn't tumbling anymore, though she couldn't see anything in front of her except for the blanket of blackness. Then she looked down at her Converse sneakers.

And gulped.

They were planted in a blanket of snow that reached midway up her calves. The dank coolness that she was used to--the shadowy tunnel she'd been traveling through, out of her backyard, into the past--was giving way to something else. Something blustery and ab­solutely frigid.

The first time Luce had stepped through an Announcer--from her Shoreline dorm room to Las Vegas--she'd been with her friends Shelby and Miles. At the end of the passage they'd met a barrier: a dark, shad­owy curtain between them and the city. Because Miles was the only one who'd read the texts on stepping through, he'd started swiping the Announcer with a cir­cular motion until the murky black shadow flaked away. Luce...

    DUDEE. good series.

    the last book torment was soo GOOD! the ending made you think like "OMG! what is Luce thinking!?!" and then you just swoon as soon as Daniel chases after her <3 it was so CUTE ! I loved when in torment when he was going after her he was all:" i know Luce better than anyone in the world" :D haha
    i thought it was funny cuz u think he was exaggerating but he literally knew her that well <3 he didn't even worry if he could find her, he just knew that his heart would lead him to her awww Lauren Kate's books just get me ;) and im totally reading this series to the very last one (which i hope this one isn't) .

    Seriously...

    These books are hardley teeni-bopper books just bc they arnt groping each other all the time dosent mean they arnt, ohh what was the o so intelligent phrasage you used ... 'juicy' they are fabulous books so deal with it. ( though i have to agree with you on the twilight thing, not everybook has to be compared to that. Its not like 'twilight' is the only standard you can hold romances up to)

    Passion Lauren Kate

    Disapointing! Other two were full of Passion, this one was like a run-on sentence. Lacked Passion. The 4th could be promising, so I will remain hopeful! Explanation why Luce incinerated 1st boyfriend?

    WOW! This is AMAZING! Each Book Gets Better and Better!! I can't wait for the 4th!! A MUST READ SERIES!

    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. . . .

    As we learned in the previous books, Daniel is a fallen angel, and Luce has reincarnated over and over, due to a curse.

    After the last book, Torment, I was excited to see more of the background for Luce and Daniel, and how their past lives played into their current love. Passion does not disappoint at all. You get taken through many of Luce and Daniel’s different romances and you learn that they really do love each other.

    I really liked how in Passion that the chapters would alternate between Luce and Daniel’s story. Very nice to get Daniel’s perspective on different situations, especially since we didn’t know very much about him for the first 2 books. We finally get more of his personality and his feelings for Luce.

    The ending perfectly sets up for the final book, Rapture. But it does leave you pretty frustrated that you have to wait so long to get that last book. Its for sure a great read, and I highly recommend it for anyone who has enjoyed the previous books. In the meantime, you can read Fallen in Love (its 3.5 of the series) its an extra look at more of Luce’s past lives. Check it out too.

    Must read!!!

    If you've read the first two books then this is a definite must read. I loved being able to glimpse into their past lives with eachother and seeing how different luce was but daniel never changing. I must admit when I began reading it it was kind of slow but then it picked up the pace very quick. Towards the end, I wanted to smile and cry at the same time because they were always so close but so far away.

    Love it!(:

    I am Hooked on this series! There's love and action and uncertanty! It makes you wonder about somethings. The Protaganist Is very Stubborn but she is also bery brave and challanging, not like othrer girls who act Fragile, who think there is no Downside to their way of acting, this is Re-freshing.

    Very Slow......

    I loved the first two books and was eager to get my hand on this one. I got about half way through the book and was bored. I tried to push through it and ended up skim reading through it. The end i have to say got better but i was not impressed sadely. Hopefully the next book will be better!
