VOYA - Pam Carlson
Exquisitely beautiful girl meets divinely handsome, gentle, and protective boy who turns out to be an actual angel. The two fall instantly and completely in love. Girl dies. Girl is reborn in another century and meets the same boy once more with the same result, again and again and again. Lucinda and Daniel are obviously meant to be together forever, but what is the price of eternal devotion? Luce and Daniel must battle Lucifer himself in order to continue their wondrous love. Angels of all types join the two in searching for ancient artifacts that will enable them to stop Lucifer from recreating the Fall, a disaster that would end the civilized world. In the fifth and final book of the series, Luce continues her slow recovery of memories from the beginning of her existence and is stunned by the truth she discovers. Each book in the series has built up to this revelation, and each character divulges his or her role. Kate brings everything to a nail biting yet poignant conclusion in which enemies become friends and friends will sacrifice whatever it takes in this ultimate battle between good and evil. She succeeds in providing a splendid supernatural romance without too much gore, guts, or gruesomeness and even provides a lighthearted epilogue. Reviewer: Pam Carlson
Children's Literature - Heather Kinard
What would you do if you had only nine days to save everything you love? Time is running out for fallen angels, Luce and Daniel, as they try to find a way to stop the rebellious Lucifer from erasing the past. Lucifer is determined to wipe away millions of years of history and return to the time and place where he started it all with his rebellion against God. If he succeeds, Luce and Daniel's love will be destroyed. So the fallen angels and their friends, both angel and demon, are in a race to find three relics that will lead them to the spot of the Fall. Only then will secrets be revealed that explain why Lucifer rebelled in the first place and why he now wants to go back in time. But stopping Lucifer is not easy. Dark forces are all around and constantly trying to stop the angels' progress. And even as they battle to survive, Daniel is not completely sure he wants the truth to come out. What Luce does not remember is the role she played in Lucifer's rebellion. Once she discovers her connection to that most historic day, she will have to choose if it is Daniel that she truly loves. While this book is based loosely on Catholic lore about angels and their fall from grace, it is heavy on the romance and definitely more a romantic novel, than a religious history. Fans of the "Twilight" series books would definitely enjoy this storyline. This book is the fourth and concluding book in the "Fallen" series. Reviewer: Heather Kinard

Very good book. I loved the characters and was sorry to see it end.

This was one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read in my life. Yes, the third book dragged a bit in the sense that it was a constant flip back and forth from Luce in a past life, and Daniel always getting there too late. But, Rapture answered every question between Luce and Daniel. Their love is completely binding, which makes this book exceptional. I agree, however, with many fans on the pressing 'Cam' issue. Lauren Kate should release a short story solely based from Cam's perception of everything he went through to get to his current state. He was a very important character and deserves to tell his side of the story. Anyways, this novel was beautifully written in every sense. I was heartbroken, yet completely elated at the book's final chapters. The epilogue tugged at my heartstrings as well, because you realize the angels can never interact with Luce and Daniel again, but they make the best of it in every way. I am so sad this series is over. I kind of still would like to know more about Luce and Daniel in 'mortal form'. For instance, I would've liked to read about their wedding day, how many kids they ended up having, what their names were, what they did for a living, and the list goes on. I read all 4 books in less than 5 days and cannot believe it's already over. It would be exciting to see this made into a movie, yet I believe my expectations on what Daniel and Cam look like, are not humanely possible to find 2 men who are THAT gorgeous! My expectations of everything are way too high for those two, hehe :) Thank you Lauren Kate, for giving young women like myself, a beautiful love story to dote on for many years to come!

The book was so fast paced. I finished today when it was released. I really enjoyed it and got into although I think the descriptions could've been explained without that much detail. Finally!! Questions were answered! Although I'm left burning with the intense question that Luce was desperate to have the answer to which she just forgets and doesn't care anymore. WHO WAS LILITH??? WAS LUCE LILITH AND DID CAM LOVE HER???? I'm left infuriated with a burning to passion to know the answers to these questions. Luce also doesn't explore her feelings about him. She thinks about him and questions motives that just end up disappearing. Frankly, I need a book on Cam or a short love story. Why his story wasn't in Fallen in Love is beyond me. Book was good, sad it's over since I'm left with these burning questions about my favorite angel.

The Fallen Series is great for teens and young adults wanting adventure and yearning for romance.

To begin with I love the series and I have been waiting patiently for the final book for months. The finale was extraordinary and took my breath away. It was such a relief to finally have all of our questions answered, but in some sense I'm a bit disappointed. Even though the ending was so pretty, I felt a need to know more. In reality, I expected Lucinda and Daniel to tip the balance siding with the Throne and living happily ever after as Angels, I mean she has just recovered her whole memory and her wings to start all over? Is kind of sad to think I read all three book simply for the characters to forget it. :( Plus I agree with some of the fans, what about Cam? So many unanswered questions concerning him, his beloved, and the interest with Lucinda. :/ His story should have been included within Fallen in Love. Overall I'm happy with the series, it is quite remarkable, but the ending had a bitter sweet sense to it. The least thing they could have done was kiss.

I am kinda sorry to say this but I have been an enormous fan of this series when I first read Fallen but I felt let down for some reason, I can adequately explain my reasoning but its just my feeling after reading the novel. Its an okay read, but it just felt like key elements that help a reader connect to the novel were not there

I loved the forth and final novel in the fallen series it was by far the best out of all of the fallen series it was filled with action and romance i would recommend this book to anyone but i would also recomend you read fallen,torment and passion first.

!!!!! YEAH AT LAST!!!!!! They are together. I've read all the books and this was a happy ending.I did feel bad for Lucifre at the end. I just wonder if Cam is going to get his oun story? I think that would be another great series:)

The fourth book did not disappoint. I have to admit, I felt the third dragged and didn't see the point of it, until I read Rapture and then it all made sense and all my questions were answered. Loved the book. I was sad and happy about the ending. Read it, you won't regret it.

After following Luce and Daniel's love story through all the books I enjoyed seeing how exited they both got when Luce would remember something. However, at the end of this book, Daniel and Luce both give up their wings and all their memories and friends to be together. I hated that. After going through all that the last thing I would do is give up all those times for a chance at meeting. Without going into too much detail, this book wasn't the really satasfying ending I was hoping for.

These books have been sooo awesome that after reading the 1, 2 and 3 i had a huge smile on my face !!!!! But after i read the 4 book i left the book with an even bigger smile and a sigh of satisfaction!!!! These books will just leave u thirsty for more butt then when u hit the 4 book u will no longer be thirsty for more u will be soooo satisfied and filled to the top that u will be satisfied or a while!!!

It litterally dragged on for me. I don't know why, it just did. I loved the first book. But the books after that were just boring. Everyone seemed to have loved it, maybe i'm weird and just didnt find anything intriguing in this series. Glad i ended it.

Although I thought that the third book dragged on and on, the ending was so complex and bitterly sweet that in the end it all really did make sense. I am a very good reader but it took me a long time to get through these books because I just kept looking back and rereading! I thouht that the ending was sad because I hate to see such a good series end so bitterly sweet. I felt so bad for lucifer because he was so despertly in love. Lastly I thought that cam was so sad and that kate should have made an ending for him too. Seriously a great read if you don't look ahead and make sure to read all the books!

I almost cried when i was reading the ending. It is a really sweet finale. Lauren makes the devil seem so dreamy but i guess that was the purpose. I wish i didnt have to end.
