Review of Fallen by Lauren Kate

Fallen (Fallen, #1)Fallen by Lauren Kate

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Please see a synopsis of Fallen, by Lauren Kate on the Goodreads site.

Fallen was another book that I didn't think I'd like, but couldn't ignore. Especially after the fact that I didn't think I'd like Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and then LOVED it. Well, I think it's safe to say that I like fallen angel stories.

I found Fallen to be very similar to Hush, Hush in more ways than one. First, both stories involve fallen angels. Second, they're both mysterious (in plot line and sexy male leads). Thirdly, there's sexy male leads (it needed to be its own point). And last but not least, I LOVED IT. That's not to say that they're identical. Both have their own distinct characters (Luce being more held back and confused. Nora being courageous and outspoken), and each author has her own take on the premise of fallen angels, among other aspects.

Onto the point. Fallen is an incredible novel written by someone with clearly a lot of talent with words. The first half of the story, Kate has you intrigued about all the odd happenings and mysterious characters. And then she starts to give you more insight to Daniel, the male lead, and you think you're getting answers until you realize there's still so much you don't know. The second half is a wild journey of one question being answered, while raising two more questions in it's wake. Kate leaves it almost to the last moment to answer a lot of questions, and even then she leaves the story off on the biggest cliffhanger, like it's the season finale of your favourite primetime show. You don't have a choice but to tune in next time to see what will happen.

Chances are that if you've read or even considered reading Hush, Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick, that you will love Fallen as well. They are similar, but also both are their own mysteries.

I wish someone could explain to me my new love for angel stories. And if they can't, just point me in the direction of more! Highly recommended and newly added to my fave reads!
